What works

Everything inclusive the mod DH (Darkest hour) after following steps:

1) for Red Orchestra use the mouse-fix in the  HOWTO below

2) for Darkest Hour replace the DHintro.rom & Entry.rom files in:

~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/red orchestra/DarkestHour/Maps


ROintro.rom (to be renamed as DHintro.rom) and Entry.rom from:

~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/red orchestra/Maps

DH will start up with the intro and menu of RO but will allow the user to join online DH games.

HowTo / Notes


2013-05-17 Admin note: the instructions below are old and may not apply to current Wine.

It settled properly through Steam, however, there are two or three things to do:
Adjustment File redorchestra.ini:

 "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/red orchestra/System/RedOrchestra.ini"
"Windowed" might be preferred mode with emulation desktop in winecfg that allows a easier switch to X.
In the game, remove the effects weather improves fluidity of the game
Depend of winHQ version, but D3D9 seems to the best renderer for the latest versions...
In section [WinDrv.WindowsClient]: For the patch below works, and contrary to what most tutos say
You should leave on "True" otherwise, the mouse will remain stuck in the middle of the screen ...


For the problem of mouse "escape" of the window (bug ID 6971) ...
I had to compile the source, applying the patch.
Those of you beard to do so (and I understand), I was able to isolate the file you need to replace.
I give the procedure for Ubuntu with installation of wine via a deb package.
The zipped file here
Download and decompress the archive in a temporary directory
Make a backup of files:
Open a terminal
sudo cp -p /usr/lib/wine/ /usr/lib/wine/

Then, put in the temporary directory where it was unpacked the archive ... and copy files as follows:

sudo cp /usr/lib/wine/

Voilà! it's over. Open Steam, and start RedO, good frag!
I will update patched file.

Red Orchestra takes a long time loading maps
That tip come from FAQ RedO very interesting of the official site. Most of common errors are described.:
We are looking into the over all cause of this however you may do the following to attempt to improve your load times.

1) Find your Redorchestra.ini file located in the steam/steamapps/yournamehere/redorchestra/system folder (hint it looks like a notpad icon with a cog)
2) Change the cache size to better match your ram size
Listed under [Engine.GameEngine].

256 Megabytes of RAM or less

512 Megabytes of RAM

768 Megabytes of RAM

1 Gigabyte of RAM or more

Fix2: Turn of PreCaching
For those who have more than 1 giga amout of RAM
Also in your redorchestra.ini under [ALAudio.ALAudioSubsystem]
Change UsePrecache=True to UsePrecache=False
and under [Engine.LevelInfo]
Change bNeverPrecache=false to bNeverPrecache=true
and under [Engine.NullRenderDevice]
Change UsePrecaching=True to UsePrecaching=False
and under [D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice]
Change UsePrecaching=True to UsePrecaching=False
and under [D3D9Drv.D3D9RenderDevice]
Change UsePrecaching=True to UsePrecaching=False
and under [OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice]
Change UsePrecaching=True to UsePrecaching=False
and under [PixoDrv.PixoRenderDevice]
Change UsePrecaching=True to UsePrecaching=False

Watch out!, DEpende on wine version, the game fail to really stop and stay in memory. You have to kill the RedOrchestra.exe process..
Two ways:
a slappy :

kill -9 `ps -edf|grep RedOrchestra|grep -v grep|awk '{print $2}'`

Or right clic, "Kill process" in the system monitor...
If it's working, please feedback to the forum...
