Additional Comments

With the dlls from the howto the game will start, however the graphics are completely garbled. I managed to start a skirmish game as the hover text from menus is visible and this proceeded without crashing. In game elements had similar visual defects as the intro movie and game menu.

HowTo / Notes


Place the DLLs in this archive in Wine's windows/system32 directory. Then, start winecfg and add dll overrides (native, builtin) for the following DLLs: dplayx, dpnet, dpnhpast and dpwsockx.
After that, update your Wine registry by running 'regsvr32 dpnet.dll'.
