What works

The game itself, and parts of its patching system (RTpatch.exe). It also appears to work on any graphics level, even when I set the environment to "Windows 7" in winecfg. Logging in works fine as long as you specify the appropriate configuration file at launch.

What does not

  • The main launcher itself.
  • The auto-patching tool, which seems to partially work if I install Mono 2.10. It may just need some command line options to make it work, but I'm not sure yet.
  • Using the mouse to steer your ship. This is related to that infamous mouse bug.
  • The auto-downloader Gamigo uses for most of its games doesn't seem to work at all. I had to manually download the installer and its installation data files, but the downloader is not the installer itself, so this is fine by me.
  • The heads of characters (for me) draw as a corrupt starburst form, although hair and the like seem to render properly in the mess.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Anything apart from docking/undocking in stations while in game, and very basic flight, as it is nearly impossible to take part in PVP or PVE activities without the ability to aim and shoot with the mouse. This renders the game almost completely unplayable.

Hardware tested

  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

The XInput patch cannot be applied to wine-1.3.19, therefore rendering it void as a potential workaround for the issue. I really hope the mouse issue begins to clear up in the near future, though. Fallout III works great with Wine. Given Black Prophecy uses the same (well, albeit newer) game engine as Fallout III, it shouldn't be too hard to get it to work fully.

HowTo / Notes

Working Patcher/Launcher - Shell Script

I just wrote a little Patcher since the official doesn't run in wine:

https://github.com/Manu311/BlackProphecy-Patcher/raw/master/patch.sh

Just download the file and place it into your Black Prophecy Root Directory

It downloads and looks for your patch files in the (not existing) directory: Patches which will be generated at first use. If you've already downloaded some patches, I recommend you put those there.

If you have any  advice for my script, just inform me, I'm not used to shell-scripts very much.
