What works

  • Installation (see extra comments for details).
  • Single player
  • Patching to 1.50q
I strongly recommend to use a virtual desktop as the game crashes on closing and the processes are much easier cleaned up this way. I tried different settings (in-game) for graphics, but even highest settings worked (only flaw I saw: sometimes you see the refresh happening, if you move the mouse over e.g. a button).

What does not

Additional Comments

Installation worked only this way: 1. Switch to Windows 98. 2. Install MSI2 with winetricks (http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks). 3. Switch to emulated desktop, e.g. 1024x768. 4. Run the setup (you even see all buttons labled correctly). You need to be patient with some dialogues. Some buttons can be clicked with the mouse, others need to be navigated to by pressing TAB and activated by ENTER. You won't be able to choose a install path, so make sure you use a wine prefix (a good idea anyway). 5. Patch the game (http://dlh.net/cgi-bin/pat.cgi?search=battle%20realms) to 1.50q. Now have fun, you can play again.
