What works

Menu navigation

Normal gameplay with high fps (45+ consistently)


What does not

Sound (no sound whatsoever)

click weirdness for navigation during the startup menus: I have to keep the right button pressed and left click for the left-click to register, and I have to do this each time (i.e., i cant hold the right button pressed throughout). But as soon as the game starts (after it loads and you click 'Start'), it works as its supposed to

 

Also, I couldnt get the native resolution of my monitor, but I get 1024x800, so I'm quite happy about that

Additional Comments

This version of wine works flawlessly with Age of Mythology, and pretty well Starcraft, and both give excellent sound. So I'm not sure where the problem is...

Online Multiplayer

Cursor Bug

There is a cursor bug that can:

  • Cause the mouse buttons to not do what you expect; or
  • Cause a transparency problem with the cursor; or
  • All of the above

To work around this, edit the rise2.ini file (~/.wine/drive_c/users/{user}/Application Data/Microsoft Games/Thrones and Patriots Trial/rise2.ini) and set "ForceGDICursor=1".
