Additional Comments

I installed dot net via winetricks first. -- wget sh winetricks corefonts dotnet20 -- It makes the launcher work. The install the game from the CD + patch. Find a copy of msvcp60.dll and copy it to the game directory d3dxof.dll goes into windows/system32 set d3dxof.dll to native in winecfg To make sound work and prevent the game from crashing due to memory shortness set HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\DirectSound\MaxShadowSize to 0. For provinces to have the correct colour, set HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3d\OffscreenRenderingMode to fbo

HowTo / Notes

  • The Setup tries to install Net 2.0 and fails, as a result, you must start eu3game.exe instead of eu3.exe
  • You must copy d3dxof.dll and msvcp60.dll into in Wine's windows/system32 directory and set them to (Native/Buildin) in winecfg
  • Some flags are not drawn, but i'm unable to display them in my Gnome/Gimp either, so i think it's a GTK+ bug ( the flags are stored in GAMEDIRECTORY/gfx/flags as *.tga, if someone knows this bug or a solution please e-mail me )
  • Set "VideoMemorySize = 128" in ~/.wine/user.reg
  • You have to set "OffscreenRenderingMode = fbo", because in the default mode the MapColors in Political- or Religious- Mapmode are wrong or simply not there
  • Set "master_volume=-1" in settings.txt to disable sound, otherwise startup will fail with a SegFault in eu3game->dsound->libc ( ! every time you enter the option menu ingame, the master_volume will be set to 0 and the game will die on the next startup ! )
  • You must setup a virtual desktop in winecfg and put the same values in settings.txt, otherwise the game will crash before it enters the mainmenu ( it seems that the emulated getSystemMetrics() in wine does only work with VirtualDesktop )
  • An alternative is to use a Desktop Window IE: wine explorer /desktop=ref,800x600 eu3game.exe
  • The Map-Borders are drawn incorrect
  • The game hangs for 2 minutes at the and of every tutorial and when you click the back button in the single player menu ( maybe the loading of the menus is extremely slow )
