Selected Test Results

What works

Single player tutorial.
Hot seat multiplayer.

What does not

Hogs of War must use 16bit desktop - MS Windows will auto switch to this, wine does not. This will result in strips of land missing and water being rendered in place.

You must have at the least 640x480 for videos and your choice of game resolution available (or play in wine desktop under winecfg) on your monitor or HoW will crash.

Workarounds

Force X to 16bit:

xinit ./script_to_run_game -- :1 -depth 16

placing a script to run the game in xinit is not required, but does automatically kill the X instance when exiting the game.

Note for multi-monitor setup:

-- :1 will create a new X instance with primary monitor as the primary monitor, -- :1.1 will force the 'primary' monitor to be on the secondary one.

What was not tested

Multiplayer online.

Full single player campaign to the end.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
