What works

Everything,installed with wine 1.9.23-staging 32 bit and amd gpu with free drivers. Excellent fps.See instructions in additional comments.

What does not


Note(if you own an nvidia gpu perhaps it is best to follow the older guides,because the previous test data which were with nvidia gpus+drivers did not work for me.)

Additional Comments

Wine 1.9.23-staging with 32 bit prefix set to windows xp and csmt patch enabled. Wine3d registry settings set to: renderer=opengl ,vram=match the gpu size ,strict draw ordering=disabled. Insructions: DLL overrides required:amstream devenum wmp10 xvid and quartz from winetricks. Install amov4ie in your prefix from: to resolve performance and video issues. Run "regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\amstream.dll" from wine terminal to register amstream.dll in the x3:tc windows prefix. Finally install the game and launch it. If the game crashes on launch reinstall quartz because sometimes it gets overwritten,if you change wine version on the same prefix,or if you install new stuff in the same prefix.

HowTo / Notes

wine setup instructions:

X³: Terran Conflict or short x3tc will run out of the box, but voices, music and movies will not work. In order to fix that, you need to do the following steps:

- It is recommended to do these steps separately and in this order! 
- Also, repeat each step if an installation fails to finish!
- Finally, creating a wineprefix is highly recommended

1.) After you installed x3tc, get winetricks (save as) and install the following:
    All of these are necessary to fix movies and music.
2.) Open winecfg and go to the libraries tab. Add "dciman32.dll" and set it to "native"
3.) Install "amov4ie.exe" manually.
    Once that is done, run the following command: [regsvr32 "c:\windows\system32\amstream.dll"] (without brackets of course)
4.) download this msdmo.dll and copy it into "/windows/system32/". Overwrite if prompted.
Beware of additional dll installs/overwrites!
If you like to install additional dlls, you should be careful about the chosen package!
x3 terren conflict will run perfectly if you setup your wineprefix as mentioned in the howto, if you install additional stuff like vcrunXXXX, chances are that you install dlls which cause this game to crash or freeze.
The following dll(s) should not be changed after finishing the howto:
| msdmo.dll (14KiB)          |
| msvcrt.dll (2.4KiB)          |
If you however want to install an additional vcrun-version, it is highlty recommended to cut/paste the msvcrt.dll from windows/system32 into your x3tc folder beforehand.
Once you installed the additional vcrun-version, check the system32 folder for a new version of the msvcrt.dll file and cut/paste it into the game folder containing the exe file you had to install this vcrun-version for!
Native Linux version

A native LInux version of the game is available on Steam.
