Homeworld

Homeworld's epic tale begins in the far reaches of the universe. You were the benign lords of a peaceful society located in the center of a lush spiral galaxy. For as long as anyone could remember, no one challenged your peaceful existence. But then came the conquerors, invading with the sole purpose of overtaking your world. Billions died, and the survivors were relocated to a cold, lifeless planet on the edge of the galaxy. Hundreds of years later, all knowledge of your previous existence has been lost. Only vague myths remain, until the discovery of an ancient tablet buried within the ruins of a half-destroyed craft in the great-banded desert. This Guidestone reawakened the knowledge of your ancestry, and set your race on the path home - coordinates leading straight into the heart of the galaxy. Sixty years ago, construction began on the giant Mothership that will carry millions of your people into deep space. Construction is now complete. Your journey to the Homeworld begins here...

What works

Almost everything.
 

What does not

Alt-viewing.  Seems that Gnome hijacks the alt-click functionality, so it's impossible to alt-click.  There's probably a way of disabling that in Gnome, but I don't know how.  Regardless, alt-clicking is nearly worthless... you just can't finish the tutorial.


Game did not want to run at first.  So it must be mentioned that the game needs to run in the directory that it was installed to.  Go there via the terminal, or write a script to do it for you, then run "wine homeworld.exe" from that location.  Passing in the path doesn't. work. 

Workarounds

What was not tested

The last few levels.  Completed 10 levels, working great so far.  Movies, Sound, Graphics, all work VERY well.  Maxed out detail on everything, and no slowdown at all.

Additional Comments

Install went okay after I deleted my previous wine profile. Upgraded to 1.05, and applied a No-CD crack in order to play.
