Additional Comments

The X52 saitek joystick don't work out of the box with the game. There is some problem with wine and the game's DirectInput system. A workaround is to create an empty text file named "deviceinputold.txt" in the main game folder (where the "EvochronLegacy.exe" file is). The game will then use an older input system, allowing the joystick to work.

HowTo / Notes

Installation
  • You are recommended to use the latest release of Wine
  • You will also need Winetricks


   # How to install (Direct download version):

- Download the last version of the game: evochron_legacy10808.exe

- Create a clean Wineprefix (not necessary, but recommended):

env WINEPREFIX="/home/user/Evochron_Legacy" wine wineboot 

- Go to your "Downloads" folder (or wherever your install file is)

cd Downloads 

- Install the game

env WINEPREFIX="/home/user/Evochron_Legacy" wine evochron_legacyb10718.exe 

- Then you need to use native d3dx9_35.dll (Bug 43742)

env WINEPREFIX="/home/user/Evochron_Legacy" winetricks d3dx9_35

   # How to install (Steam version):

- Install Steam with Wine (follow the instruction from the Steam appdb page)

- Install the game directly in Steam



Saitek X52 joystick workaround

The X52 saitek joystick don't work out of the box with the game because there is some problem with wine and the game's DirectInput system (Bug 43741). 

The workaround is to :

- create an empty text file named "deviceinputold.txt" with you preferred text editor

- put it in in the main game folder (where the "EvochronLegacy.exe" file is):

  • Direct Download version: "/home/user/evochron_legacy/drive_c/sw3dg/EvochronLegacy"
  • Steam version: "/home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Evochron Legacy"

 The game will then use an older input system, allowing the joystick to work.
