Prince of Persia T2T
by DUCHARME on Wednesday April 12th 2017, 11:46
Hi everyone,
I'm trying to get Prince of Persia T2T working and I can successfully launch the .exe using wine 1.6 (I think ?), but after clicking the install button the window just closes and nothing happens.
Any help would be appreciated, I'm a real beginner.
Thanks =)
Launch Game button disabled
by allururaju on Thursday April 30th 2015, 15:39

can't play game with wine 1.2.3 because of no proper game appearance
by tousif on Sunday September 22nd 2013, 8:12
I installed Playonlinux 4.1.1 and installed prince of persia & two thrones every thing went automatically fine but when i started the game start up intro was good, menu's were readable but background texture was unknown and moreover i can't see any game character looks like they are stretched or rotated or zoomed too much & keeps changing how to solve this trouble??

games detect graphics card as Nvidia gt 8300GS but actually i've nvidia gt520. how to solve this? game starts normally but can't play because of no proper creature appears on screen.

thanks for attention
any help would be great.

I've already tried registry tweaks as shown in many comments.
I've tested game with different version of wine but got same error.
3.Different wine version detects different graphics card like HAL Direct3D & so on? why is it so?

Good Job!

Command Keyboard
by Berillions on Wednesday September 30th 2009, 0:03

I'm french and i installed correctly the game with wine 1.1.30 but i can't change the keyboard command.

For example, if i chose "Z" to UP the characters (i have an "azerty" keyboard), the new command is not "Z" but "["....

Have you got an idea to change correctly the command?

Thanks :)

Running t2t on 1.1.4
by JC on Friday October 10th 2008, 2:35
I followed the instructions from both warrior within and t2t to get my copy working.

on running the exe, it starts the detection window just fine, all pass, but the launch game button stays grayed out.

any ideas?

Graphic and Healing
by Beorn on Wednesday July 16th 2008, 6:57
I tried the registry above, but that didn't solve the problem for me. This one did:


There is still a minor graphic glitch, but I can survive with that. Now
I have the problem with healing. Drinking water does not heal the prince. Anyone got any ideas how to fix that?
There is a weird behaviour with the commands of the game
by Jeremy on Monday June 30th 2008, 17:22
Hello every one :)

There is some keyboard and mouse weird behavior in the game.
in normal view the mouse look left&right are inverted, invert settings should only work on axis up/down.

Direction keys have some issues, after moving the character around in the game at the end end of each movement, while releasing the direction key the character will turn around to the opposite direction.
execpt that and some graphical issue the game work perfectly under wine 1.1.0

hello. i'm new here. 10 minutes ago, i had no idea what wine was, nor had i ever heard of it before. i installed pop:t2t last night on my laptop, which is running vista x86 ultimate. i had the game on my pc a few years ago, and it worked great. but on the laptop, i get the same issue with the directional keys. and whoever said that it makes the game impossible to play was right. so i was wondering if anybody had any ideas on what i could do about it. apparently it doesn't only happen with wine ... any patches, or any other suggestions ? please, i'm getting desperate. hard to get a speed kill if the prince just turns his back on his enemy ... thanks in advance.

i added all those registry strings in the regedit
and almost put everything to 0 on hardware.ini
but the game still is really slow and choppy
(but i think this is caused, cause of my old pc...2.4 cpu,1024 memory,nvidia fx 5500 oc 256.)

when i set the game settings to low
the game graphics goes to "software mode (wer you can see the pixels)"
or sometimes the graphics doesnt even render and all you see is plain black.
And i can only seeem to get it to opengl mode by putting special effects to high
but that makes it more slow =[

but i hope the game plays better in new wine versions
good work wine team =]

- I found that setting "RenderTargetLockMode"="textex" or "readtex" in the registry solves the upside-down graphics (using wine 0.9.49 or later). Make a text-file containing:


Name the file "funny_name.reg", and import it into the registry:

wine regedit funny_name.reg

Can someone confirm this works for them?

- Also, the game uses a native dll, xinput9_1_0.dll, if present in the system32 folder. It doesn't seem to do a lot though (perhaps it needs additional files?).

- I can't get this game to work in any other resolution then the safe default 800x600. (Because the game crashes when trying to select anything higher.)
RE: Inversion
by Lorenzo on Sunday March 23rd 2008, 16:02
I confirm that the upside-down bug goes away with your registry value.

- xinput9_1_0.dll, AFAIK, is a dll only needed when using XBOX controllers (I remember a similar discussion for Jade Empire).

- to play in other resolutions, force the one you want in hardware.ini by removing the others. By only leaving the 640x480 one, I could switch to that resolution. Anyway, there are no notable enhancements in the performance: the game is still very slow.

I noticed that the console has tons of these:

fixme:d3d_surface:IWineD3DSurfaceImpl_BltOverride Implement blit from a swapchain to the active render target

This is probably the cause for the sloppyness. By looking around, it looks like this message means a software blitting is being used instead of hardware, which would explain why the game is so slow. I found a similar bug listed in:

may it be the same thing?
