  • Sound/Music
  • Main Menu
  • Dialogues

What does not

  • Sometimes the game crashes
  • Dialogues are skipping without wrapping though DxWnd
  • Full playthrough

Workarounds

On modern systems dialogues are skipping without limiting framerate. As there is no possiblity in Linux though the graphics cards drivers,

I found as a workaround to use the software DxWnd. This usually is used to force DirectX fullscreen only games to run in a window, but also allows for an working fullscreen mode.

I installed several workarounds via winetricks, some of them might not be necessary, as I finally only got the game fully running by using DxWnd:

  • devenum
  • directmusic
  • dmsynth
  • dsound
  • dxdiagn
  • dxdiag
  • quartz


What was not tested

New installation with DxWnd and mimimum of Winetricks workarounds necessary

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Only works in combination with framerate limiter or DxWnd.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
  • 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.
