HowTo / Notes

Re: Chessmaster 10th Edition Graphics
Colin,

Thank you for taking the time to address my issue. In answer to your questions:

1) What version of Wine are you using?
1.0.0 just released.

2) Did your installation of CMX go smoothly?
Yes...but for the comment i made that the Vista installation prompted for all three disks and the wine installation did not, the installation seemed to have been completed and the program seems to start up...i was able to create a login profile. Yet subsequent startups give me this weird screen (will add screenshot to AppDB entry).

3) Are you using anything fancy in terms of window management? (Compiz, Beryl, etc.)
Not when I first did the install. Afterward I setup compiz, and everything works in that regard.

Also, I assume you're having the same black screen problem that I described. Is that the case?
Well, it's not exactly black...there is graphics visible, but it's all jumbled...will add screenshot.

Calvin
Chessmaster 10th Edition - Ubuntu 8.01 Screenshot Added
This is what is seen when compiz is NOT running. When compiz is running, the Chessmaster window is black.
Graphics now working with Wine 1.1.2

The program is now functioning under DirectX configuration, be it ever so slow. It also functions under OpenGL with 2-Dimensional chessboards.

Let me also say that I had installed xserver-xgl because of problems with window decorations under compiz-fusion prior to the wine 1.1.2 upgrade.
