    HowTo / Notes

    • To get NOLF running on newer versions than Wine 1.5.1, run:
      winetricks dsound directmusic
      Afterwards, open up winecfg, go to the "Libraries" tab and set dsound to Builtin.
      You can also disable the music if you really want to play without it.

    • If you are stuck on the loading screen, disable animated loading screens in the launcher, too.

    • If the launcher fails to find your CD, start the game with lithtech.exe and all rez-files as parameters.
      ­$ wine lithtech.exe -rez rezfile1.rez -rez rezfile2.rez ...
      This script should w­ork with all version of NOLF:
      $ wine lithtech.exe $(for f in $(ls|grep -i rez$); do echo "-rez $f"; done)
    • For widescreen, you can pass more options to the command line:
      ++screenwidth "1920" ++screenheight "1080" ++screendepth "32"
      However, this stretches the game. A better widescreen fix is available here, but you can't play online with it.

    • To be able to play online, edit your /etc/hosts.
