HowTo / Notes


This test result is for the EN server of megaten!

wine setup how-to:

Installation of Wine:
1st of, I recommend you use wine-1.5.13.
Next, you need the vertex shader patch (use 'save as'). Extract the wine source, copy the patch to the extracted wine source tree and open a terminel. cd to the source tree and run "patch -p1 < wine-1.5.11-swblending.patch" (Name might be different for the patch if you changed it) without quotes. Once the patch is successful, compile wine via "./configure && make". Next, install with "make install".

Installation of Game:
Download megaten form the official site and run it in wine. Should the installer hang, quit it completely and run it again. Should the installer not work for you (which also sometimes happens on windows!), either run it on a virtual windows system or download the preinstalled archive from Gamershell.

Updating the game:
Run "wine start ImagineUpdater.exe" form the installation tree of megaten. If you happen to get a mismatch error, use the manual patch available on the Atlus Online Forums.

Different resolutions:
For some reason, CAVE, the developer, decided to not include many resolution options. But you can manually fix that. First off, I recommend to run the game with virtual desktop, so open winecfg, activate virtual desktop and set the resoluton to something you want, e.g. 1920x1080. Now go to the megaten installation tree, open OutsideOption.txt and edit the lines ResolutionX and ResolutionY. They should look like this:
-Color 32
-FullScreen true
-ResolutionX 1920
-ResolutionY 1080
It's important that the FullScreen option is set to true. The game should now start in the selected resolution. If you get an error, check if the resolution in winecfg and OutsideOption.txt are identical! You can also use uncommon resolutions, I e.g. use 1920x1053 with disabled window decorations, so the window of the game is maxed on my desktop without being covered by my panels

Alternatively, you can run the game without virtual desktop in windowed mode. Therefor, change -FullScreen true to -FullScreen false and the resolution to the dimensions you want your window to have.

Fixing Fonts:
Since wine uses open fonts, you might experience weird spacing and characters (special letters) being broken. At the time of writing this, the only solution I can recommend is using the actual ms fonts. You need msgothic.ttc and msmincho.ttc, google should help you finding them. Save both in [your_wine_folder]/drive_c/windows/fonts/.
