Valhalla Classics

Within The Crypt the prince will find himself in a desolate and treacherous area of the castles outer walls. Many people have died here trying to find the four orbs of Infinity, rumor has it that when the orbs are placed in a specific location they will provide access to the 'inner castle' known as The Sanctuary.

So far, every adventurer has died within one of the two floor trapped rooms, but legend tells us that there are maps of these rooms hidden somewhere in The Crypt.

HowTo / Notes

Setting Wine renderer to gdi mode

To fix graphical glitches, Wine renderer must be set to gdi.

Create new registry key with "$ wine regedit":

Add new key "renderer" with string value "gdi" under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D\ .

Alternatively, one could use winetricks: "$ winetricks ddr=gdi". Might not work on Wine 5.1 and later.
