Additional Comments

Rated bronze because program is not really in "usable" condition without being able to read recieved comments. Only _real_ problem is the font problem. Everything tested (besides screenshot) worked well. Sometimes artifacts were left on the screen, but generall cleaned up easily. The launcher for games/etc. was placed in the upper left hand corner of my screen, prolly because I use e16 as my windowmanager with no actual task bar.

HowTo / Notes


Xfire depends on a few dlls that seem to be needed in the system32 folder (if you are emulating 2000 or higher)

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

ln -s /usr/lib/wine/ msvcrt.dll

You also need to install 'fontforge' to read chat windows to at least version 20060408

(pre 0.9.12)

Run 'winecfg' and 'Add application' Xfire.exe. Now go to 'Libraries' tab -> 'New override for library:' -> 'd3d8' and add it to 'Existing overrides', useing 'Edit' change to 'disable' or 'native only' and Xfire wil run.
