Selected Test Results

What works

  • I copied over the 3 CDs to one folder to install, which works. Can't tell on using the bare CDs.
  • Now and then you see some graphics glitches, but everything seems to work quite fine

What does not

  • If you happen to use the console, you might not be able to return to the game. If that happens, use the console to save via "save 'savegame_name' and "load 'savegame name'"
  • The fonts are a bit messy, installing all fonts via winetricks did not help here
  • In some situations the game goes to slideshow modus. To fix that, set OffscreenRenderingMode to "fbo" and it runs flawless again

Workarounds

What was not tested

  • Finishing the game
  • Bothering with CD check, used a patch for that

Additional Comments

I had some strange artifacts after a while playing. I still have to figure out where they come from.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

 If you get the following error and performance issues:

fixme:d3d_surface:fb_copy_to_texture_direct Doing a pixel by pixel copy from the framebuffer to a texture, expect major performance issues

 Adding the following Registry key should help:

HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D: OffscreenRenderingMode = "fbo"

 

Also if you have a black menu when the game starts, or graphic errors, you can set the following Registry Key:

HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D: UseGLSL = "disabled"

 

(this also increases the performance strongly)

(see http://wiki.winehq.org/UsefulRegistryKeys for further information)

Make the game look better

To force antialiasing in the game, run this in a terminal:

__GL_FSAA_MODE=4

export __GL_FSAA_MODE

wine /path/to/your/Vampire.exe -game Unofficial_Patch
