What works

Installation, with some caveats:

  • It is necessary to use 'wine eject' to switch to disc 2 when the installer prompts for it.
  • It may be necessary to change a registry value: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\Monkey4\Retail\CD Path" must be the drive, e.g. "d:\" rather than e.g. "z:\media\cdrom0" If this is not done, the game will be unable to find its data files

Gameplay.

What does not

The game's launcher program sometimes hangs until pulseaudio is killed, if pulseaudio is running.

In-game audio is choppy if pulseaudio is running.

If the game is configured to use OpenGL (not the default) it will not switch the video resolution back to norm when it exit. It hangs instead.

Workarounds

What was not tested

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO Install the game
To install the game, you have to switch CDs during the process. The easiest way is to "mount one over the other":
  • mount cd1.iso /mnt/image
  • start installer and wait for it to ask for the other CD
  • mount cd2.iso /mnt/image
  • wait for the installer to ask for the first CD again
  • umount /mnt/image
  • finish the installtion
You can also use wine eject x: command, but it does not always work for me.
HOWTO Make graphics work
OBSOLETE: This addresses blue faces, hands etc, and more glitches! (not for every wine version apparently, please test this)
Use monkey4.exe to run the game (the launcher), not monkey.exe (the game itself).
Also, setup graphics to use OpenGL instead of Direct3D and 32bpp (in the launcher options).
