What works

With Direct 3d:

  • Installation
  • Intro movie (in the pyramid and dance scene) plays with Direct3D rendering after that it is not possible to continue.

With OpenGL renderer:

  • Game becomes playable but has some graphical glitches. (I tested on Mandriva Linux 2010.2 (update of 2010.1) with Nvidia drivers 173.14.28, Wine 1.3.9 and Kernel using a virtual desktop 1024x768, shadows were set to "none".

What does not

After the intro movie speech plays back okay but the screen remains black with Direct3D. The workaround is to enable the OpenGL renderer.

With the OpenGL renderer the game becomes playable but has some graphical glitches.

Additional Comments

I am using a cover-CD from "Computerbild Spiele 1/2010". I don't know if there is any copy protection but installation and intro movie seem to work okay.

HowTo / Notes

Needs an old version of Wine or changes to the configuration

­­­­Use wine-0.9.31 .. 0.9.43 to play this game with the default Direct3D9 renderer because of several regressions. These old versions should work except the item icons in the inventory may not be drawn correctly (bug #21354).

The maintainer would appreciate if you would find out whether one of these old ve­rsions works better than the others.

You can use much more recent versions of Wine (such as 1.1.34/36) if you change bin/release/plugins.cfg to use the GL renderer instead. The speech output issue (bug #21209) may still affect your machine.­
