Installs and runs (judging from the start menu sounds), but you see just a black screen.
(Seems to be a known bug.)

 2016-05-16 Admin note: the instructions below are extremely outdated and not likely to work in current Wine. They are left here as a starting point for anyone who may wish to update them.

The installer may encounter an error while copying files. If it does, run the setup program for the demo version, but abort it when the welcome screen appears.

  • Place the ddraw.dll from the correct archive below in the directory where you installed Worms World Party.
    Wine 0.9.47
    Wine 0.9.46
    Wine 0.9.45
    Wine 0.9.44
    Wine 0.9.43
    If you can't find your Wine version on the list above, try finding a file 'wa_ddraw_{yourwineversion}.tar.bz2' here
  • If you're experiencing sound problems, place devenum.dll and quartz.dll in Wine's windows/system32 directory (usually ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32), and use winecfg to add a DLL override so wwp.exe uses native 'quartz' and 'devenum'.
  • If you update to 1.1, place msvcp60.dll in Wine's windows/system32 directory
  • If you are not running Wine in a desktop emulating window (winecfg Graphics tab), the game freezes if you right-click to bring up the weapon menu. However, it is possible to select weapons with the F1-F12 keys.
