    HowTo / Notes

    Network support and animated cursors

    Animated cursors is in wine 1.2.2/1.3.5+. the special broadcast networking support is wine 1.5.15+.

    You need to have Mac OS X 10.6+, Solaris or linux kernel 3.4rc4 or higher.

    And you should be fine. No need to use special version of wine anymore.
    HOWTO


    Cursor and Multiplayer Support

    You need to use a special version of wine to get proper in-game cursors and network support.

    You can acquire this by either patching and compiling wine yourself, or using a provided package.

    Goto http://www.compholio.com/wine-kane/ to obtain these  (DEBS and RPMS).

     

    Internet play

    You have to make sure that your "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/users/profiles/yourhomefolder/Application Data/C&C 3/Profiles/your_gameaccount/Options.ini" 'GameSpyIPAddress' fieldagrees with your online ip (for example GameSpyIPAddress = 84.171.46.121) and make sure that file is read-only.

    Admin notes:  Do NOT submit test results for patched versions of Wine.  This is not a true representation of what Wine can achieve.

    Do NOT submit test results for PlayOnLinux or anything else that is not Wine.

    Do NOT submit test results where Multiplayer has not been tested.  Full tests are need to correctly rate an application.

    Tests that do not comply will be deleted without warning.

    Troubleshooting

    Installation


    The installer says installation was aborted, even before starting to install files
    If you are installing from a CD/DVD, try copying the game disc to your home directory and run it from there.

    I chose custom installation and it tells me to select a language pack, even though I have
    Use the standard installation mode.

    Starting the game

    It hangs at the splash screen
    Try running winecfg and disable all audio drivers.  Of course that is not an acceptable solution, but it will help us to determine where the problem lies.


    In-game issues


    Some effect settings result in corruption or improperly displayed rendering
    Try setting the VFX or Shader quality to a lower setting.  Your graphics driver and/or wine may have bugs which result in visual defects at present.

    The cursor animation does not play
    Apply the relevant patches to wine or use a version with the functionality as described in the howto.

    bug report

    Best is to fill a bug report.

    Just copy paste what you have done, fill the wine version field, copy paste some terminal output
    Kaane Patch 1.02
    by Twain on Monday July 27th 2015, 11:22
    I am unable to install patch 1.02 for kanes revange,
    using wine version 1.7.44.
    I did install tiberium wars and patched it to version 1.09, no problem at all.

    patching kanes returns:
    Patch not available
    (german: "Patch nicht verfügbar")

    starting kane works just fine though.
    From kanes menu i choose online play -> kane normally downloads the patch itself and installs it.

    This does not happen, it simply freezes :(

    Anyone with an idea on how to handle this?

    I was able to install patch 1.02, kane version.
    As i dont have time to retry this atm. this is what i did:

    As i said, the downloaded patch did not work, nor did auto download via tiberium wars kane mainmenu.
    Solution (for me) was to emulate a virtual window (using wine configuration tool), start Kane, click on multiplayer -> internet play.
    It says there is an update to download, ends Kane, downloads the patch, patches the game and is done.

    After that, you are free to deactivate the virtual desktop.

    This helped me, perhaps it helps some out there too :P

    Well I'm not even sure there is actually a bug here. It might be a problem somewhere else in my setup, that's why I'm asking whether somebody managed to make it work with LAN game. Besides I have no comfortable way of actually testing with wine version that would be acceptable for bug report as I use playonlinux and fedora which has heavily patched version of wine so the system wine is probably even less acceptable.
    BTW: To be clear, I'm not asking for support with playonlinux here, I'm just asking if someone get it working and how and I'll then try to repeat those steps with my setup.
    LAN multiplayer
    by hynner on Friday January 2nd 2015, 10:13
    Did someone manage to get the multiplayer working with wine 1.5.15+? I tried to play it with friend over hamachi but we didn't see each other. We're able to play warcraft 3 over hamachi just fine though.
    If anyone managed to get it working could you please post how you did it? thanks.
