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

Starting games, audio

What does not

GOG.com installer requires GDI+, see notes.

Scrollbars and a File menu are always visible.

It's possible for the game to lose mouse focus if these unwanted UI elements are clicked on, need to fiddle with window manager application focus to get mouse working in the game again.

Additional Comments

Due to the elimination of the CD-based copy protection, this is now the recommended version of this software. GOG.com installer requires GDI+. If winetricks is installed, execute "winetricks gdiplus" to get it. Installer runs flawlessly after this. The GOG.com installer sets up the Windows shortcut to use a backwards compatibility feature and forces the game to run in 640x480 mode. Wine does not support a similar feature, so instead the game runs with a large swatch of black space surrounding the game. Suggested workaround is set wine to "Emulate a virtual desktop" of 800x600 or so.

HOWTO: Script to scale using Xephyr and VNC

Scaling using Xephyr and VNC

# scale playonlinux --run "King of Dragon Pass"

# variables.

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