HowTo / Notes

the needed mfc42.dll

It would probably make more sense to 'properly' install the Microsoft Foundation Classes, than to just throw in a mfc42.dll from somewhere, as I do for testing.

If anyone has a good howto for that, I'd appreciate, as the winetools only have support for mfc40.


If You would like to see Mankind running on Unix/Linux, please vote for this application and help testing/debugging.

Other versions of Mankind

If anybody out there has other (older) versions of Mankind, I'd like to have a copy for testing - or test results with Wine.


All needed dlls

Thanks to O2Online's new crash reporting tool, I was able to extract a full list of dlls needed by Mankind. This list includes some I've never seen in a "+loaddll"-trace. Im only listing dlls found in the Windows directories, as the ones that ship with Mankind are loaded as native dlls by Wine anyways:


Currently playing with native vs. builtin settings to see if that does change anything. Ntdll, kernel, user, ... obviously cant be loaded natively, but Im hoping for some change when using native versions of some other dlls....
