Additional Comments

I am using emulated virtual desktop, the game requires at least 1024x768. I played for some hours, crashed only once. Everything seems to work after these steps: 1. remove/rename video directory 2. get the updated ddraw.dll: and install it to cossacks dir. 3. set the ddraw.dll to native,builtin with winecfg or this reg: -- REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\dmcr.exe\DllOverrides] "ddraw"="native,builtin" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\dmcr.exe\Explorer] "ddraw"="dmcr.exe" "Desktop"="dmcr.exe"
