What works



What does not



1 - Set Wine to Windows XP

2 - Install XP Compatibility Patch

3 - The Game must be run in 16 Bits / 16 bpp .

For example with xinit, first change to tty1, pressing ctrl+alt+f1, login in console

make a script with the follow example content :


xinit "/usr/bin/wine C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Midtown Madness\MidTown.Exe" -- :1 vt5 -ac -depth 16 &
DISPLAY=:1 /usr/bin/xrandr -s 640x480

Save & Exit, call the file for example

Note the folder "Program Files (x86)" is just if wine is 64 bits, if not should be "Program Files", use the commands :

chmod a+o+x

and enjoy it. the text view very curved, and set the controls to keyboard or another, before start a race. on my case, the first time is on "Joystick"
