Additional Comments

Patching requires a minor workaround. Once the game is installed you must change permissions for all files in the Activision/Bridge Commander folder to "read and write" or patching will fail. (defaults to read only)

HowTo / Notes

WARNING

This section is mainly focused for unmodded Bridge Commander

If you wish to add test data or performance tweaks about mods of Bridge Commander please report it here

When reporting a test result please add your video card and driver version, thank you.

Note
The game seems to have problems with ATI Radeon cards. I use the opensource driver, and have a very slow overall appearance of the game (The same appears with the proprietary driver). Even the mouse pointer does not move smoothly (As if the bug above is not resolved yet for ATI cards??) Apart from being very slow, everything works, even the videos.

Because of driver problems, Intel video cards which are commonly used in Laptops will be too slow for this game.
Nvidia cards with the closed source driver are working fine.

If you have problems with Sound try the set Audio Quality to High: For this open options.cfg in a Text editor and change ProviderReserveList=LowQualitySoftware to ProviderReserveList=HighQualitySoftware
Kobayashi Maru users can change this under Game Options.

HOWTO

Installing Bridge Commander

Bridge Commander installs without problems from original disc.


Updating to version 1.1

Bridge Commander installs without problems running the executable patch through wine.


Other considerations

1. You may need a fixed exe

2. Fastest way to test if game is working is through Quickbattle. Load the game, configure it and test 3d with the Quickbattle Button.

3. If you run this game from a vfat drive, I highly recommend to use the mount option shortname=winnt. Else BCs internal Python interpreter can run into a lot trouble with case sensitivity of files.Black screen on start may be caused by this.
