What works

Interacting with objects

Interacting with creatures

Importing creatures


What does not

Applets still can't connect to the main program (OLE32/MFC problems)


Wine 3.3 is finally able again to at least start Creatures 2.

You still have to run the game in Xephyr, because of the 16bit color requirements and you have to make sure Wine is using GDI as its DirectDraw implementation (OpenGL will just crash the application)

What was not tested

All the applets (since they can't connect)

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source
