What works

Installation works with no tweaks.

Trojan check works.

Playing the game: wine play.exe works.

Playing the game: wine Conquer.exe blacknull works

Windowed modes: 1024x768 and 800x600 work

No cracks necessary.

What does not

Clicking the launcher buttons "register" and "website" don't work if nspluginwrapper and firefox packages are installed with flash. Some distros, namely Fedora affected. Epiphany and other gecko-based browsers that use nspluginwrapper and flash are also affected.

Workaround 1: install seamonkey and in regedit set HKCU/Software/Wine/WineBrowser->Browsers = seamonkey

Workaround 2: remove nspluginwrapper package

Workaround 3: Issue the command, "pkill plugin-config" in Terminal after pressing the game's website or register button.

Game will pause indefinitely on the "Loading..." screen or crash with debug output. This has two known causes:

1: Assertion: Look inside the game folder for a "debug" folder. open the file inside it with a text editor. Look for an ASSERT line at the bottom. Typically, the game will have quit because you don't have Courier 12 font installed. Install mscorefonts using winetricks or copy it from windows or go into regedit and under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Fonts add a new font called Courier 12 and set the value to coure.fon (or change the existing Courier line to read Courier 12). (Wine's coure.fon doesn't have "Courier 12" internal name.)

2:The game or realm server you have chosen is down or overloaded. There is nothing you can do about this except complain on their website or choose another server and / or realm.

3: Mouse cursor may not work. Used wine from git://repo.or.cz/wine/hacks.git to support BGRA Cursors.

What was not tested

I have only tried the Myth/Centuar realm. The other two I tried would just sit and wait.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

Admin note: the information below is old and may not apply to current Wine. Follow at your own risk.


Install segfaults (Bug 7483), so get your installed dir from a Windows install (only the Conquer dir, registry/etc is not necessary). Make sure you're copying a PRISTINE game directory, in other words, RIGHT AFTER INSTALLING. If you have started the game at least once, the notes below may not apply as expected. If it doesn't work, just go back and get a clean install. In particular, some of the ScreenModeRecord values in ini/GameSetUp.ini might cause your login window to be truncated. A pristine install would have ScreenModeRecord=0 which is known to work. I believe 0 is 800x600 windowed, 1 is 800x600 full screen, 2 is 1024x768 windowed and 3 is 1024x768 full screen.

Copy the missing DLLs into your c:\windows\system32\ directory: mfc42.dll and msvcp60.dll.

For mfc42.dll, the version found in Win XP SP2 is known to work:

4602907535fd682195dfff9117365826 mfc42.dll

There are older versions around that do NOT work. In particular, this one found at dll-files.com produces game crash due to unimplemented functions:

7e4d1b552ee1dfa859ba9033b3670590 mfc42.dll

For msvcp60.dll, both sources seem to work:

1f57eb5b92b2ac7f9d71a77d184d8c13 msvcp60.dll
6050bcc1b23f3df7a1876cbdcbac8232 msvcp60.dll

Make sure you're using virtual desktop (enable via winecfg) if you don't want trouble like bug 7552 and possibly other issues. The rest can be left as default.

Start the game running "play.exe". Autopatching doesn't work very reliably (sometimes you'll have to kill it because of confirmation messagebox not having focus, etc). Just try a few times.

When you reach the login screen, mouse cursor becomes invisible (see Bug 6250). This is being worked on (thanks Andrew!!). In the meantime you can workaround that with Henry's patch from http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=5075&action=view .

When you want to type username and password, take into account Bug 7553 (see the screenshot: http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=5190&action=view) and Bug 7607 (instructions to workaround are pasted there).

Then you should be able to enter the actual game.
