What works

- Installer
- Game Menu: Save/Load/Change settings/Start a game
- Gameplay/3D-Engine
- Join a multiplayer game
- Start a Multiplayer server (also dedicated with NolfDemoServ.exe)
- Uninstaller

What does not

During gameplay the mouse works for some time and than stops responding.
I can use the mouse again if I open the menu and close it again.
(Most times only one axis freezes)

The uninstaller fails if the path contains spaces.

Wine crashes every time you quit the game, but this is not really a problem...

It also crashes if you change the resultion in the game, but you can do it with the launcher.

Animated load screen also results in crashes.


What was not tested

Additional Comments

I rate this garbage, because noone wants to play a 3d-shooter without mouse... I have to select "Advanced... -> Disable animated load screen" in the launcher or wine crashes when I start a level...

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.
