What works

Everything but Network Mode - I always run at 1280x1024 (the max, unfortunately) and highest graphics settings.  The graphics settings randomly reset, but that's easy to readjust any time you see the game retesting the graphics card.

What does not

I didn't try installing directly from the CD's this time, as I wasted a lot of time doing it before.


But this modified install method worked very easily:

  a. Copy the INSTALL_DISC to a USB drive (or a new disk mount), minus all or at least the 'Acrobat' directory.

  b. Copy the MEDIA disc to the same location - all files and the LC
and Data directories: skip any conflicting files (they are the same)

  c. Put the COURSES disc in the optical drive

What was not tested

Network Mode

Additional Comments

I played this off and on for years since the last test report, but sometime in the last several months my wine setup got messed up.  Now that I started fresh, and had my previous report to go by, this is what I did:

1. Create a new 32-bit .wine config directory, since it won't run in x64 (if you already use .wine as the default x64, then use WINEPREFIX to set a new directory):

WINEARCH=win32 winecfg

2. Run winecfg to install these DLL's/libraries:

dx8vb (DX8.1 runtime)
mfc42 (VC++ 6 SP4)

3. As noted in my previous report, I now already have 'fluidsynth' and still don't have lib32-gst-plugins-ugly (but it might work now)

4. See workarounds

5. Right-click the Setup.exe from INSTALL as a Wine program, and enter the game key: this installed everything at once

6. Install the 'TW2K3_12.exe' update patch the same way: it also completed no problem, and the game worked no problem*

*I will note that my keyboard wasn't working in the game initially, which is because I switched from Openbox to Mutter last summer, and the latter doesn't give opened apps the focus.  Very annoying.  

If you have this issue: in the Graphics tab of winecfg, disable the 'Allow the window manager...' options (or set windowed mode with 'Emulate a virtual desktop' - I haven't tried this)
