First release of Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
Installed using Wineskin Winery 2.5.8, using only defaults: created empty wrapper, install game from DVD (US version 1.0 with starforce copy protection).
Applied starforce patch from net (sorry, do not remember anymore where that was from) also using wineskin to run the .bat file.
Everything seems to be working fine including gamepad. Have not played the game to the end though. Could change resolution to native 1650x1050 (Macbook Pro).
What does not
Not platinum because game has copy protection (star force).
Wine problems with gamepads are only partially a game problem:Â
Playstation 3 dualshock controller (original, OEMs are not working with Mac OS X 10.8 driver) does not work fully out of the box with Dreamfall. All buttons and analog sticks work, but the D-Pad can not be configured in Dreamfall because it is represented as 4 buttons, but Dreamfall only accepts a Hatswitch type HID element for the D-Pad.
Workaround: Used ControllerMate to define a virtual GamePad with just a Hatswitch. No registration required ($25) to do that. Would be nice if wine would also support remapping of buttons to Hatswitch. Â
What was not tested
Game to the end
Older wrapper on paulthetall.com did not allow to install from DVD (crashed, had to use pre-installed windows-XP version of game), also did not work with gamepad. Nice to see how much latest wine works out of the box.
