Single player and multiplayer have been tested.
Intro video plays, all sounds effects and BGM play.
Fullscreen or windowed mode.
Controller support (generic Twin USB Joystick with my PS2 controller plugged in) worked out of the box
What does not
Antialiasing makes the whole screen go black, but the game is still responsive, meaning you can revert the change from memory (pressing left/right arrow key and the confirm button).
Apparently, antialising only works in certain modes or resolutions (it seems to work on the default 720p in my machine), but I haven't tested all of them.
It does not work in 1080p FULL mode, and has been disabled in the game.
If you have more troubles with the game's settings, look for its configuration files inside the wineprefix.
It's located under
WINEPREFIX/drive_c/users/YOURUSERNAME/My Documents/ARC SYSTEM WORKS/BBCPEX/Config/DisplaySetting.cfg
The game requires the following winetricks:
- winetricks quartz devenum wmp9 xact
To install wmp9, windows version must be set to windows xp. Afterwards, it's recommended to switch to windows 7 mode, because Steam is dropping support to Windows XP in 2019.
Apply library override: xaudio2_7 native,builtin
- This methodology has been tested in an individual wineprefix as well as in Lutris' prefix.
What was not tested
Story Mode, Multiplayer, etc modes
The game worked as smoothly as on Windows for single player and multiplayer battles, and it loaded the intro video, so it should work well in these modes.
Silver rating for being fair because Antialiasing is not working. The rest is great and fluid with the workarounds.
- Ryzen 5 2400G APU (CPU+GPU)
