Additional Comments

The game runs very fast on new PCs so I had to D/L the ultimate fix, put it in my Commandos folder and start the exe instead of the original. https://sites.google.com/site/belcommandos/Home/CommandosUltimateFix.rar Made winecfg with $ WINEARCH=win32 winecfg and installed all necessary lib32 packages. Winetricks installed (but do not know if needed): corefonts Windows versions: Windows 95 Tested on a Dell XPS 14 with intel and nvidia (bumblebee).

Movies and Sound

As others have pointed out you can get movies working by installing some DLL's.
To fix movies: winetricks amstream quartz

I needed only these two for movies.


The sound is a little crackly which I managed to fix installing dsound.

To fix sound: winetricks dsound

Enjoy :)

Please provide command which you type, and exact error message.

Which version of the Wine are you using and on which Linux Distribution?

Sorry my mistake. It's wine 1.8.2 on Devuan Jessie and the exact problem is a dialogue appears asking for "the next disk" (which it shouldn't be asking normally) and on specifying the right location it complains: The file "setup-1.bin" could not be located in Z:\media\cdrom\beyond_t (which is where the installer is located). Setting up the CD-ROM drive with winecfg doesn't help.

Command used is wine /media/cdrom/beyind_e/setup.exe (also typo'd this directory above, this is the correct one).
