Youtube video with Gallium Nine

Take from my own blog (

1. Prerequisites

winetricks wmp10 d3dcompiler_43 d3dx9 xact_jun2010

2. Using google try to find windowsmedia-kb942423-x86-intl.exe. You need this installer to install libraries so Wine can play WMV files -- based on WVC1 --. If you don't install this then you may get a black screen (just after CAPCOM logo while starting the game).Once downloaded

wine windowsmedia-kb942423-x86-intl.exe

Notice: installation might hang at the end. [CTRL]+|C] is your friend

If you use Mesa driver for AMD card then you may have an issue for character. Characters ingame are not properly shown/drawn.

If you are a AMD user then try to use Gallium Nine with Mesa driver.

That should do it :)

The character drawing issue is also evident with the nvidia binary drivers.

winecfg must be set to WindowsXP for install the patch, but I still have a black screen after the logo…
