RelicNews Technical HelpÂ
(more detailed info about the switches)
HW 1.0: open winecfg, go to "Drives", click on "Autodetect...", mount your CD and retry
HW 1.1: make sure that you use a nocd-patch
2.) No Story and Subtitles in Cutscenes (European Version)
HW 1.1: replace your language file under your Homeworld2/Data folder with one of these.
3.) Multiplayer/Gamespy Lobby says wrong CD-Key?
@all: try reinstall in a clean WINEPREFIX(maybe you have/had the demo installed?)
@all: or you have HW2 installed with a different WINEPREFIX(serial is stored in registry)
4.) Network not available?
@all: Gamespy lobby does not work
5.) HW2 crashes
@all: try the -nopbuffer switch
@all: do not enable oss in winecfg
6.) Widescreen Monitor and Hidden Buttons
@all: use the resolution commandline switch eg. Homeworld2.exe -w 1280 -h 960
@nvidia-users: you can set this over the ÂOpenGL Environment VariablesÂ
@all other: enable FSAA in your xorg-config
8.) When patching the game to 1.1 the patch program hangs when writing EULA.txt.
@all:You have to kill before it hangs(i.e. with the xkill command on a console, and then click on the window). The window with the problem is a installer that pops when patching, if you kill that window, the patcher works as spected
9.) Objects and units are not rendered properly
@all: try the -novbo switch
