What works

  • Installation
  • Intro 
  • Game runs very well, even at high settings
  • Sound also plays back fine
  • Tested as a "Gladiator" character.

What does not

  • Even I set the graphics to fullscreen, the screen is not completely filled.

Note by Mantainer: this is a "feature" that characterizes the game itself and the way in which the video resources are managed. It depends on the video card / video driver chosen for the most, and the resolution available at fullscreen.


What was not tested

Playing through the whole game

HowTo / Notes

Install & Run

wine --version: wine-1.5.23

# start the sacred demo installer
wine SacredDemo.exe
# change to application directory
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Ascaron\ Entertainment/Sacred\ Demo
# run sacred
wine Sacred.exe

Tested GPUs:
- Radeon HD4350 with 2.1 Mesa 9.0.1 (Gallium 0.4 on AMD RV710)
- Intel HD Graphics (i5-520um) with 2.1 Mesa 9.2-devel (git-c840270)
- nvidia 310M with 3.0 Mesa 9.2-devel (git-c840270) (Gallium 0.4 on NVA8)

Further comments:
- The application ships MSVCP60.DLL, msvcr71.dll which do not seem to be needed (wine's dll are enough)
- There are some scaling differences, intel has left and right a black bar, while nvidia scales the picture to the whole screen
