What works

Installing the retail version works after a workaround. Running the game works as well. The movies play without any problems. There's very little problems running the game. Sometimes wave err messages appear while the characters are talking yet the characters voices sound fine. It's nothing major at all though, their voices can be heard loud and clear. I'm able to play through the missions with hardly any problems.

What does not

One scene where a mechanoid would go from dormant to activated sometimes causes the game to crash. It happens randomly. If I set vertex shader support to emulation in winecfg, the game will not crash during this scene. Another thing is while looking at any object that has activated it's cloaking device, the bottom-left corner of the screen will show a black box and show the same object. The cloaked object will appear upside down. Finally, starting nexus in directx9 mode will not work. A message comes up saying that it needs directx9 compatible hardware to play in that mode. I have a directx9 compatible graphics card, yet it keeps showing this message.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Setting vertex shader support to emulation and seeing if it fixes the cloaking device problem.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

The installer will take up the whole screen and won't give any status as to the installation progress. It's recommended to enable a virtual desktop under winecfg. Nexus requires at least a resolution of 1024 x 768.

There is currently a problem with how Wine handles cab files from multiple install discs. (Bug 4533) Nexus has two install discs with cab files in each of them. The cab files must be located in the same directory for the installer to work under Wine. The solution for this is to create a directory on your hard drive, copy all the contents of the first disc onto that directory, and then copy the remaining cab files that is found in the second disc onto the same directory.

Open a terminal session and cd into the directory which has all the contents from the Nexus install discs.

From here type the command .

From here, a wizard will appear which will guide you through the rest of the setup. Go through the wizard to install Nexus.

......

Nexus: The Jupiter Incident is protected using SafeDisc. Currently, Wine cannot run games off a cd that are protected using SafeDisc. A simple workaround would be to use no cd executables.

Download no cd executables and copy them over to the directory where Nexus was installed. The executables are called nexus_dx8.exe and nexus_dx9.exe. The no cd executables for Nexus 1.0 will also work for Nexus 1.01.

The CDs will no longer be needed. From here open a terminal session and cd into the directory where Nexus was installed.

Type in to play.
