Additional Comments

Requires install ie6 dotnet35sp1 dotnet40 wmp10 xna40 gdiplus quartz and a windows media codecs package in a new 32 bit winxp prefix. My test bos is a i5-4570, Nvidia gtx660 8gb ram. No music in background in-game. Don't know if is a audio codec problem with my system. NOTE: Edit runasadmin.vdf file on Distant worlds root folder and delete all dotnet entrances for didnt break your new prefix. NOTE 2: If you want watch intro video at the cost of fps, change Direct renderer to gdi: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D] "DirectDrawRenderer"="gdi" or with "winetricks ddr=gdi" NOTE 3: For totally close the game would kill rpcss.exe process (it hangs on exit) NOTE 4: Gold rating with Music in-game and intro video.
