What works

  1. Gameplay
  2. Login
  3. Autopatcher

What does not

The game launcher does not work. The background images are not drawn (appears black) and the button to launch the game does nothing.

 This isn't a huge issue, but sometimes in-game tooltips have a tendency to stay on screen. Just keep moving your mouse over the tooltip item and it will disappear.

Additional Comments

Steps to get the game running: Make sure you have the following packages installed: wine, winetricks, wine-cms Note: All shell commands here are to be run as a normal user (not root) unless specified otherwise. Run the following command: winetricks corefonts You also need to install flash11. Winetricks does not download flash11 from the proper location and terminates with a 404 error. Visit get.adobe.com/flashplayer and click the link that leads to the archive of old flashplayer versions. You want to download any version of flash11 for windows. Make sure you download the one for internet explorer, as that is the one with the activeX dll that we need. Once you have downloaded the proper flash11 installer, run it in wine. When the install completes, make sure to check the box that disables auto updates. Install the game in windows or a windows virtual machine. Do NOT run the game - you need a fresh install. When the game is installed, copy the entire game directory to your linux install (wherever you want the game to live). You may need to install the visual c++ runtime 2008. If you get an error for msvcp90.dll, you need this. If so, run the following command: winetricks vcrun2008 Run winecfg, and make sure you set wine to run in a virtual desktop with a resolution of 1024x768. Note: You may need quartz.dll. You should copy it over to the game directory from a Windows XP (SP2/SP3) install. At this point you should be able to run the game. You will be unable to run it from play.exe. Instead, run AutoPatch.exe. Note that unlike previous versions of this game, the login screen no longer has any of the old issues. The mouse is perfectly visible, you don't need to hold the alt key to type your user/pass, and the user/pass fields are in the proper locations. The only issue i noticed was that the images for the individual game servers don't show up.

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.
