Selected Test Results

What works

* Installation
* Starting the demo via "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Croteam/Serious Sam - The Second Encounter Demo/Bin$ wine SeriousSam.exe" without quotes at the command line
* Yellow, red, and black colored splash logo image appears

What does not

- No shortcut placed on KDE desktop
- Game fails to load following the initial splash logo with an error window that reads, "Cannot make GUID for a player: CoCreatreGuid(): Error 0x00000720" and I hit the only button that's available to click in this error window which is okay and it exits.
- Attempted to uninstall via "wine uninstaller" without quotes at the command line; while the uninstaller said it uninstalled the demo, a check in the installation directory and sub directories revealed the files were still there! Manually removed these files and directories, as well as files in windows/temp.

Workarounds

"Serious Sam: The Second Encounter" is not "Serious Sam II"!

Z-Depth problem
by Tobias Jakobi on Monday March 31st 2008, 8:31
Hi there,

for those who have problems with non-existant Z-buffer. The Serious Sam engine doesn't seem to specify that it really needs a Z-buffer and hopes for the standard Z-buffer depth of 16 bits. This is not quite correct behaviour and doesn't work with wine-0.9.57 and upwards.

To fix this open the ingame console and type:
gap_iDepthBits=24
ApplyVideoMode()

More information about the bug and fix in:
bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11970

Greets,
Tobias Jakobi

EDIT: The demo works perfectly for me (wine-0.9.58)
