Selected Test Results

What works

* Installation and desktop shortcut icon
* Starting the application
* Initial game menu
* In-game Main Menu
* In-game Main Menu / Options Menu
* In-game Main Menu / Starting (but the eventual start of a game fails, see what doesn't work below)
* Uninstall via wine uninstaller, manually removed remaining files in installation directory, manually removed desktop icon

What does not

- Game play, when you choose to start a game from the In-game Main Menu option, it does bring up a few additional screens where you select the default mission and so on, but it crashes back to the desktop after these screens and runs the debugger with a lot of information output to terminal
- Changing the screen resolution from within the in-game Main Menu / Options Menu does change the screen resolution but the mouse cursor pointer icon then displays a pink square box behind it, whereas the graphic is displayed normally otherwise
- When you try the game demo with the default resolution of 640x480 and exit, my desktop was resized to 640x480

HowTo / Notes

  • To get NOLF running on newer versions than Wine 1.5.1, run:
    winetricks dsound directmusic
    Afterwards, open up winecfg, go to the "Libraries" tab and set dsound to Builtin.
    You can also disable the music if you really want to play without it.

  • If you are stuck on the loading screen, disable animated loading screens in the launcher, too.

  • If the launcher fails to find your CD, start the game with lithtech.exe and all rez-files as parameters.
    ­$ wine lithtech.exe -rez rezfile1.rez -rez rezfile2.rez ...
    This script should w­ork with all version of NOLF:
    $ wine lithtech.exe $(for f in $(ls|grep -i rez$); do echo "-rez $f"; done)
  • For widescreen, you can pass more options to the command line:
    ++screenwidth "1920" ++screenheight "1080" ++screendepth "32"
    However, this stretches the game. A better widescreen fix is available here, but you can't play online with it.

  • To be able to play online, edit your /etc/hosts.
