Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation.
  • Sound.

What does not

  • Starting the game.
  • Playing the game normally, as the graphics are distorted.
  • Switching to/from other applications, when run in full screen.


To solve the problem of starting the game, drop `msvcrt.dll' in the directory `GameData/bin', and set it to native:

The game can be run from the CLI, using the command:

$ WINEDLLOVERRIDES="$WINEDLLOVERRIDES;msvcrt=n" wine EmperorsTomb.exe

To solve the problem of graphics distortion, disable support for vertex shaders:

Create the registry key and the (DWORD) value, and set it (to 0):

`HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D', MaxShaderModelVS=0 (DWORD)

A quick way to do it is from the CLI, using the command:

$ wine reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D" /v MaxShaderModelVS /t REG_DWORD /d 0 

To solve the problem caused by application switching in full-screen mode, run it in virtual-desktop mode:

$ WINEDLLOVERRIDES="$WINEDLLOVERRIDES;msvcrt=n" wine explorer /desktop=,800x600 EmperorsTomb.exe

What was not tested

  • Nothing.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

To avoid the annoyance of the mouse constantly escaping the game window in virtual-desktop mode, and ensure better game-play, capture the mouse:

Create the registry key and the (String) value, and set it (to "Y"):

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver', GrabFullscreen="Y" (String)

The setting can be changed from the CLI, using the command:

$ wine reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver" /v GrabFullscreen /t REG_SZ /d "Y"
