Test Results

Selected Test Results

What works

  • Opening the game
  • Playing the game
  • Loading save files
  • Saving the game

What does not

  • Playing videos (i.e. cutscenes that don't use the in-game engine)

This causes a significant problem in endgame combat, since most of the high-level spells involve a rendered cutscene. Since Wine cannot play the video, the game loses its controls and the player cannot do anything until ending the game by closing the window (Alt+F4). This also means a player cannot defeat the final boss in combat.

Additional Comments

I included the Widescreen Mod (http://gibberlings3.net/forums/index.php?app=downloads&showcat=63) and GhostDog's UI (http://www.moddb.com/games/planescape-torment/downloads/ghostdogs-pst-ui-mod-v22) in my testing. I did not have to change any settings with winetricks, nor did I have to set any Registry data.

Area Transition Issue
by Ryan on Sunday August 13th 2017, 23:37
If the game stops updating the display after an area transition (responding to no input except an attempt to close, e.g. with Alt+F4), try the following registry script:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\torment.exe\Direct3D]
"DirectDrawRenderer"="gdi"
crash on startup fix

For me this is what fixed crash on startup issue:

1) Set win version to nt4.0
2) add registry value:
under HKCU/Software/Wine/AppDefaults/Torment.exe/Direct3D/

VideoMemorySize = 16
works with 1.3.34

Just tested it with 1.3.34 (and 1.3.27) and there is no random clicking.
So it's something changed in 1.3.35
