What works

The splash screen, the install wizard all the way to the actual install process.

What does not

In order to actually start installing, you have to make sure to use winecfg and set the type of your CD/DVD-ROM to CD-ROM instead of 'Local hard disk' in the tab Drives.

When you try to Install the game, all seems to begin okay. Splashscreen appears, install wizard takes you through the steps. Once you press 'Finish', you are presented with a message box saying 'Incompatible system configuration' , immediately followed by a second message box which explains that Spellforce could not be installed because the authenticity check failed.

Wine doesn't currently have SafeDisk support, but is in the process of getting it in. So for now, installing from wine is not possible.


What was not tested

Not tested yet if it does work once installed within windows, then copy the entire SpellForce folder to Linux and use a crack. I will test this soon. But it would be better if this would not be necessary .....

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Difficult to rate yet, because it does not install.... But hopefully I will be able to rate once I get it installed through Windows and copied.
