What works

installation worked when using WINEDEBUG=warn+all.

it could be related to the fact that i did not use capital letters in installation path this time.

intro movies play flawlessly, with sound (no glitches, skips or noise).

What does not

gameplay - game crashes during loading. also i head some noise instead of actual sound.

some graphical glitches in installer (missing graphics, background does not refresh, etc).

crash log:

HowTo / Notes

Notes for startopia

At the moment of this writing the wine version is 1.5.11

I have played startopia for an hour or so, and everything works fine.

Installation manual:

google for the following two updates on the web and download them.


mount the startopia cd

Configure your wineprefix to use win32 winecfg

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/prefix/dir/ winecfg

Verify that wine is set to windowsXP with winecfg and close it.

run the AutoRun.exe found on the cd with wine

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/prefix/dir/ wine /path/to/AutoRun.exe

follow the usual installation steps. Do not install gamespy.

cd to your startopia dir

cd '/prefix/dir/drive_c/Program Files/Eidos Interactive/Mucky Foot/StarTopia/'

Run the 1.01 patch 

wineWINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/prefix/dir/ wine /path/to/ startopia_patch_1_01.exe

unzip the 1_02 update in the startopia dir overwriting all files as needed

cd '/prefix/dir/drive_c/Program Files/Eidos Interactive/Mucky Foot/StarTopia/'

gunzip /path/to/

Now start startopia

Take some time to adjust the video settings, you should be able to play it in very high resolutions, also due to the 1.02 patch you can enable all kinds of opengl goodies that you were never able to use on when you first bought startopia.

When you have performance issues.

Set your audio to lower quality en less sound events.

It seems that wine is not very good with dealing with a lot of sound events and pulse.
