What works

Almost everything now work perfectly (i don't know what's happening with DS2 in the last few weeks, but graphics is now better then in Windows on Ati 9250 -with Mesa 7.03beta).

I'm only must to use native mfc42.dll and nothing more else. From 0.9.53 version this
is very good news:

-load saved games from 2.2 Windows version

-first time enemies now dying or exploding! 

What does not

Water does not flow in the game( in some 0.9.3x version it is).

Workarounds

What was not tested

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

1. Download the native mfc42.dll and place it in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/


2. Install it using the command

wine Setup.exe

(Make sure that you properly described your cd-rom letter in the winecfg---> drives button) 

2b. If you have for e.g. 4CD version and have problems with installation process (installer don't recognizes second cd in the drive) try to copy all 4 CD into one folder and then install. It installs but there can be some errors with game's working.

Another way is to make CD images and then push the install button.

 

3. Open up your terminal and use the command and type in Dunegon Siege 2 game folder

wine DungeonSiege2.exe

and you are ready to play.

WARNING2

When the intro video's(Microsoft games, dungeon siege 2 etc.) don't work fluently, try to return to the desktop and shut down some no needed process's.
