What works

Installer, 1.3->1.7 patch installer

What does not

The game itself. When running the release version, it crashes when trying to execute secdrv.sys, part of SafeDisc copy protection. The patches removed SafeDisc protection because it was causing problems for some of Bullfrog's legitimate customers.

Now I get this output:

HowTo / Notes

WARNING

SAFE DISC ISSUE
For those wondering, the reason DK2 fails to work and/or crash is due to the SafeDisc issue in WINE. Once this is solved, this game will function. At this time it has no safedisc support. A few fixes have been posted.

The fix is to get a crack, follow the 'HowTo' below!

HOWTO

Installation:

Insert your Dungeon Keeper 2 disc, and change into its directory:

wine Setup.exe

Install the game, but do not choose to run the game at the end. We must patch the game first:

wine Dk2Update130to170_English.exe

To avoid safedisc issues (bug 219), your only option is to find a crack. This is illegal in some countries, so you should investigate the legal issues before you to do this.

If you have now obtained a crack in a zip file, simply extract it into the program directory (ensure this is the correct path for you):

Configuration:

To avoid mouse warp issues, you will need to use the MouseWarpOverride key as described at UsefulRegistryKeys. Make sure you have at the latest version of Wine (at least Wine 1.1.3), otherwise this will not work.

regedit

Navigate to HKCU / Software / Wine. Create the DirectInput folder/key and create the MouseWarpOverride string value and modify the data to 'disable'.

If you do not understand these instructions, make sure you read UsefulRegistryKeys. If the mouse is warping in the game menu, you haven't done it right.

No native dlls are required anymore for the proper operation of this game.

Running:

You must run the game from the crack (Dkii.exe) rather than the original executable (DKII.exe). You may do this by changing the properties of the desktop icon, or by using this command to start the game:

wine "C:\Program Files\Bullfrog\Dungeon Keeper 2\Dkii.exe"

Troubleshooting:

Cursor sticks/warps to centre of screen: This is bug 8354. You must apply the MouseWarpOverride UsefulRegistryKey as described above.

Mouse hits invisible corner: Move your mouse to the opposite corner of the screen.

Cursor surrounded by strange black box: Disable Hardware Rendering from the graphics options in-game. Warning: This may cause crashes.

Game does not start / blank screen for 1s: Make sure you use the Windows formatted command for starting the game (wine "C:\Program Files\Bullfrog\Dungeon Keeper 2\Dkii.exe"). Do not directly specify the executable.

Sound issues: Try visiting the Audio options in winecfg and switching between ALSA and OSS, as well as reducing their settings to lower values.

Patch does not finish installing: First run the patch in its own empty wineprefix, then try patching the game again.
