V-Rally 2

Can't find out the version number (not stated anywhere I could find it, it's the German version) - thus I gave the CD identification number.

What works

Everything! The game runs well and has no graphical issues.

What does not

If you leave ticked the option  "Allow the window manager to decorate the windows" in winecfg then V-Rally 2: Expert Edition will hang at a screen with the alt+tab window.

When attempting to start V-Rally 2 Expert Edition results in "No disc inserted" window appearing, a fix is to download a no-cd patch

 - ALT + TAB doesn't work at all, in order to see your desktop again you need to exit the graphical environment. (Even ALT + Tabbing in a native Windows installation makes the game crash)

-  Configuration utility has issues with operating systems above Windows 98 SE, the game runs fine in later operating systems though.

-  Changing the aspect ratio from 4:3 to 16:9 in the settings in-game doesn't work in full screen.

-  Music in order to play, the game CD must be in your drive.


What was not tested

- Network play

- Controller input

Additional Comments

The only option that needs to be changed in winecfg is the windows version and the option in the "Graphics" tab, untick: "Allow the window manager to decorate the windows" in winecfg from the terminal. If you want to run the "Vrally2setup.exe" you must change the compatibility in winecfg to Windows 95/98 To get the music to play while you are racing you have to run the configuration utility first and set your sound level.
