Darwinia

If Steam is not installed please use the following guide

Steam:HowTo

When Steam is installed go to My Games, right click on darwinia and click install. Then say okay to any following windows.

Once Darwinia is downloaded open Wine File (in Fedora it is applications>system tools>Wine File) and browse to C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\YOURUSERNAME\darwinia where YOURUSERNAME is your steam username.

Open preferences.txt and find the line that says

SoundLibrary = anyvalue where anyvalue can be anything (it should be DSP)

simply change the line to say

SoundLibrary = null

then save preferences.txt and darwinia will run fine.

What works

Game seems to play ok.

What does not

There are two new bugs:

- No text.  Neither in game or in the menus. (So the game is not really playable.)

- The mouse cursor does not change, it stays with the default arrow.

Neither of these problems where on the last version of WINE I tested (9.30).

I will try different versions and try to pinpoint where each bug appears. 

Workarounds

What was not tested

Didn't play the game all the way through.

Additional Comments

Sound seems to be starting to work without editing the preferences.txt file. It will crash when entering a level though, unless you have made the changes.

Broken fonts.

There is no text in game or menus.

There are also glitches with the mouse pointer.
