The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay

This is the version that does not recognise later versions of OpenGL, but there are inherent problems with installing the 1.1 patch (see testing).

What works

Absolutely N-O-T-H-I-N-G when it comes to gameplay.

Installing works.  Great!  Hold on... didn't that work already?!?

What does not

As suggested by another user I ran the game with System\Win32_x86\SbzEngine.exe (double clicking the executable, no terminal input yet) instead of Riddick.exe but then there's this:

'Runtime Error!
Program: ...eeze Studios\Riddick

abnormal program termination'

 Also, doing so completely messed up my screen resolution and I was forced to CTRL+Backspace to get back to the graphical environment (using XFCE4, maybe this is working better with Gnome?).  'wine (...)\SbzEngine.exe' doesn't help you launch the game either.


What was not tested

Anything related to the game.

Additional Comments

Maybe it's worth giving it a shot again in a few months - more like six or seven.
