Not got to end of game, but one of the developer credit videos does not run at the start.
Otherwise everything seems to work
What does not
The only issue I've had is that the resolution of my desktop does not go back to normal when you come out of the game. This also happens in windows.
I bundled the startup command for the game into a short shell script to wait for wine to finish and readjust the screen size. The commands I put in the script are as bellow:
#!/usr/bin/bash WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/home/william/Games/wine_SDW wine D:\sheepd3d.exe WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/home/william/Games/wine_SDW/ wineserver --wait xrandr -s 0
I made the script executable and used this to start the game up. Works a treat!
Note if you're going to copy the script verbatim that if you run winecfg you need the same winearch and wineprefix before the winecfg command. Also note that you will have to change the wineprefix to wherever you want it installed on your system.
What was not tested
I haven't got to the end of the game, but the first 3 levels run just fine.
For added ease of use, I copied the contents of the CD to a directory in my wine directory, pointed D: to this and avoided having to insert the CD every time I wanted to play the game.
