HowTo / Notes

Fix for too fast running game and input lag

The following was extracted from a user comment made on 2016-10-09 and may not be relevant to current Wine:

There is a free windows program that adds another layer of compatibility to old games, called DXWnd. It works on wine v. 1.9.19 and is available on Sourceforge.

I have got the game running well with just minimal configuration:

-Created a profile for Shadows of the Empire

-Added "Shadows.exe" (resides in the Sdata folder in the game folder) to "Path" and "Launch" of the profile configuration in DXWind

-Launched the game through DXWnd → Success.

For a more detailed article on how to use DXWnd, visit the following link:

++ Make sure to use the "Shadows.exe" binary in the Sdata folder, not the SOTE.EXE binary in the root folder.
