King of Dragon Pass, GOG.com release

Identical to version 1.7 (518), but binary has been modified to no longer require CD-ROM for copy protection. The installer also installs the game data files onto the hard drive instead of using them from the CD-ROM.

What works

Can create new games and restore games from main menu. Audio plays great.

Game is fully functional. (Note I am using [Wine] 1.3.24, but 1.2.3 tests fine as well.)

What does not

Restoring a game from the settings while in the game (icon on right side, showing a mouse with cord wrapped around) results in a wine crash. The only workaround appears to restore from the main menu (which will require you to quit the game anyway).

Scrollbars are always present unless in full screen mode. Setting the window to a slightly larger size is a good workaround.

Additional Comments

Downloaded from GoG.com. Tested on OS X 10.8.2 using Wineskin 2.5.8 and 2.5.9. Works with wine engines up to 1.3.24 (before audio rewrite in wine).

HOWTO: Script to scale using Xephyr and VNC

Scaling using Xephyr and VNC

# variables.

# Log files. If you want to actually record logs (e.g. for debugging purposes),
# replace them here.
