Direct3D Black screen
Seems that on most installation of 1.x version of "Serious Sam Classic - The Second Encounter" when you try to switch to Direct3D mode in settings you recive a black screen.

fixing z-buffer
by JoSch on Thursday December 20th 2012, 16:11
For some unknown reason, typing

gap_iDepthBits=24
ApplyVideoMode()

in the in-game console didnt work. What instead worked was to set

persistent extern user INDEX gap_iDepthBits=(INDEX)24;

in ./Scripts/PersistentSymbols.ini which was 0 before.
Z-Depth problem
by Tobias Jakobi on Monday March 31st 2008, 8:28
Hi there,

for those who have problems with non-existant Z-buffer. The Serious Sam engine doesn't seem to specify that it really needs a Z-buffer and hopes for the standard Z-buffer depth of 16 bits. This is not quite correct behaviour and doesn't work with wine-0.9.57 and upwards.

To fix this open the ingame console and type:
gap_iDepthBits=24
ApplyVideoMode()

Greets,

Tested with 0.9.50
by Nordmende on Thursday December 20th 2007, 9:08
I testet Serious Sam SE with the Wine-Version 0.9.50.

Installing and playing the Game works perfectly !

(Only Singleplayer testet)
Game networking works with 0.9.46
by Garry Freemyer on Friday October 5th 2007, 11:21
Install without a hitch, networking seems to work fine, sound, graphics. Only glitch is that occasionally sound stops working but going to options/audio and clicking apply restarts the sound just fine.

Patching works without any problems.

Debian 4.0r1 with wine 0.9.46 compiled on my linux box with DSL.

Gold level as far as I am concerned.

I had exactly the same issue.

The game does not seem to be able to change resolution when you first run it.
I worked around this by setting the X resolution manually to 800x600 via krandrtray - after this the game started with no problems.

Try to start it again with a virtual desktop emulated. Does the problem still occur? Wine has also changed a lot since the last versions

by AnonoMouse on Monday March 20th 2006, 4:15
The game works with wine > 0.9 and add these overrides:
msvcrt (native,builtin)
opengl32 (builtin)

Make sure you have accelerated graphics drivers. The installer leaves a wineserver running, do "$killall -9 wine-preloader" after install. The game will fail with a message along the lines of "Couldn't find an opengl display mode...." if it doesn't find a file called opengl32.dll in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/. So just put a file called opengl32.dll there (a blank text document works fine). The game runs and plays all the way through then. Leave the video driver as opengl, it crashes immediately when switching to direct hardware drivers. Make sure you open winecfg, then "drives", select your cdrom, set "type" to "cdrom" after hitting the "advanced" button. Autodetect says my cdrom is "hard disc" and disk check will fail unless I set it manually to the right type.
The patch to play online (1.05 -> 1.07) is a little problematic. On a stock wine drive it fails with:
"An installation support file could not be installed (0x8000ffff)". With a full winetools install (everything under base setup and system software), the patch will install. I believe MDAC or MSXML is what makes it work. Everything described here works exactly the same on Serious Sam the First Encounter, including an identical patch error and fix. Enjoy, and as Sam says: "Never underestimate the power of huge numbers of stupid things."

For me it works on Ubuntu Dapper 6.06 and wine 0.9.19 without problems. Installer closes wineserver, and I don't have to create empty dll file. Just installed it and run as in Windows. However, I'm encountering sometimes redrawing issues. (i.e. when looking at sun)
