What works

BGII-SoA+ToB 2.5.26461

Installation works from DVD or mounted iso, as does configuration, single player, 3D graphical effects at 1024x768, WinXP, Win2K and WIn98 modes. In game movies play.

What does not

Movie does not launch at end of install screen (just an ad anyway, and can be played later directly from the mpg file). TCP/IP network play does not work, either hosting or joining. Overiding dplay.dll and dplayx.dll with Windows native (directx 9.0c) did not work. Trying to "join" a game or "create" a game, the music stops and the next screen doesn't pop up (waited 15+ min). Hitting "cancel" returns the game to normal operation.


What was not tested

Haven't finished the game but so far so good!

Additional Comments

LAN multiplay would be nice (how did that other guy get it to work with an earlier wine?). AMD Athlon64 3000+, 1GB DRAM, Geforce 7600GS

HowTo / Notes

Multiplayer via Directplay
Mentioned in a comment by zsolty_szasz:

Multiplayer can work, but requires some setup first.

The problem is with the current DirectPlay implementation. Read here how to set it up:

To get multiplayer working for games that use a DirectPlay version prior to 8, place the following DLLs:
dplayx.dll, dpnet.dll, dpnhpast.dll and dpwsockx.dll in this archive in WINE's windows/system32 directory, then add DLL overrides (native,builtin) with WINECFG.

In case of any problems be sure to see the instructions on
