HowTo / Notes

How to Install The Godfather (wine 1.1.19)

 

The instructions below describe how to install The Godfather using Wine. They have been tested with Wine version 1.1.19. Installation of this game under Wine has improved since wine version 0.9.41, which was the previous version I had tested with. Basically, the installation works perfectly.

  1. Insert the game DVD into your DVD-ROM drive.
  2. Open a terminal window and change the current working directory to that of the DVD (for example, /media/cdrom0):
    • $ cd /media/cdrom0
  3. Run the installer:
    • $ wine AutoRun.exe
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the game. 
  5. In the installation directory of the game, rename the "movies" directory to "movies.orig". (The default installation directory is "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Godfather The Game".)
