Additional Comments

Here is what you need to do to run Croc: Legend of the Gobbos with Wine 1.0: First of all, after installing the game open Registry Editor and set the value called "Driver name" located in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Argonaut Software -> Croc to "3dfx_win". If there isn't one, create it yourself. Now, you need to obtain dgVoodoo, you can download it from here: Get it? Now unpack the .zip archive, and copy those files to Croc's installation directory: glide.dll glide2x.dll (yes, replace the Croc's one with dgVoodoo's one, but make a backup of the original one) dgVoodooSetup.exe Run dgVoodooSetup.exe that's located now in Croc's installation directory. Show program the location of glide2x.dll located in Croc's installation directory. After you ran dgVoodooSetup.exe, on "Global" settings tab set: Renderer API - Direct3D9 Display device - Direct3D HAL Display driver - Direct3D9 HAL When you're done don't close this window but at the same time run another program with wine. It will be one of Croc's exes, CrocRun.exe. press "Play Croc!", and have fun :). HOW TO SET HIGHER RESOLUTIONS: When you run dgVoodooSetup.exe, go to "Glide" tab, and there you will find "Resolution". Set the resolution you like and press "OK" to save changes. After that run dgVoodooSetup.exe once again, then run CrocRun.exe and start the game normally(with the resolution you set).

HowTo / Notes


2020-08-14 Admin note: This does not seem to be needed any more, but has been kept for posterity

2014-10-23 Admin note: the following was extracted from a user comment made in October, 2013, and may not be relevant to current Wine. Follow at your own risk.

A two-byte patch seems to fix the problem with keyboard control options not being saved.

Use a hex editor like okteta to open croc.exe and change two bytes at offset 0x1B715 from 0x04,0x50 to 0x00,0x90.

Multiple versions

I've renamed this version to '1.0 (D3D)' as I've discovered there are at least 2 versions of this game. Both are referred to as 'version 1.0' in the README.txt file. I haven't yet checked to see if this version info is elsewhere (in case they simply forgot to update it in the README.txt file). I decided to change this to the newer version, as I assume most people have probably been running the newer version. Also, the latest test results appear to be for the D3D version.
