Additional Comments

Here's what I did to get everything working flawlessly (minus cutscene sound, but you can just watch the videos manually if you really want): I use two prefixes, we'll call them Wine_STEAM and Wine_X3AP. As the name imply, Wine_STEAM is a prefix which holds the steam client and is only needed to download the files. See the steam entry for more information on how to do this if you have troubles. Wine_X3AP is the directory we'll install all the various DLL overrides we need to run things. You don't need to put the actual X3AP files in this prefix, they can be anywhere. (Wine_STEAM prefix)Download the files via steam Download the NoSteam exe from egosoft. You'll need to register your copy of the game on the site. Copy it to your X3TC directory (X3AP uses the same directory). It should be something like $Wine_STEAM/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/x3 terran conflict Rest of the work is done in Wine_X3AP Get basic functionality (no music or movies) running: winetricks dxdiag amstream Run the NoSteam exe (X3AP_n.exe) once and set "Use ALternative Video Playback" in the Graphics Settings menu Get music running: Add the following registry entries (creating keys as necessary) [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{8496e040-af4c-11d0-8212-00c04fc32c45}] @="AuStream Class" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{8496e040-af4c-11d0-8212-00c04fc32c45}\InProcServer32] @="amstream.dll" "ThreadingModel"="Both" Get movie graphics: Download amov4ie.exe ( wine amov4ie.exe Get in-game voices working: winetricks wmp10
