HowTo / Notes


Update to version 1.03 to get rid of the copy protection.

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 'wineprefixcreate'.

Network play
If you are unable to connect to other players when selecting LAN TCP/IP, use the TCP/IP Internet option. This is a problem on Windows, too.
