Movies, audio, music, speech, menus, flying & shooting. Almost done ACT 1.
What does not
Current workaround which disables gstreamer & adds native quartz makes game almost unplayable.
It feels like alternating slower or faster gametime, not frame freezes.
Clean wine with PCM-converted speech does way better, but the alternating gametime speed sometimes still occurs. Depends on the load I guess.
Have no windows machine to compare.
Create CDROM device from winecfg pointing to the game directory.
Install gstreamer plugins good.
Instead of adding quartz just convert speech wavs from proprietary format to plainest possible PCM using sox:
<br></p><p>cd streams/audio</p><p>for i in *.wav; do sox $i -e signed-integer converted/$i; done</p><p>mv converted/* .</p><p>
This will sometime lead to cut off speech at the end, maybe that is solvable by experimenting with PCM formats.
It is hard to compile gstreamer plugins bad in Arch, dunno about other distros. Original speech requires this codec https://gstreamer.freedesktop....
