Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation
  • Game Launcher (with winetricks IE6 installed)
  • Starting the game (with wine virtual desktop enabled)
  • Copy Protection

What does not

  • The launcher does not work with the built-in mshtml/gecko engine.  IE6 must be installed separately.
  • Starting the game full-screen.
    It gets to the first title screen, then displays a dialog box,

    "Could not reset the Direct3D device.
    This application will now exit."

    With +d3d tracing enabled, the following appears in the log file:

    warn:d3d:IWineD3DDeviceImpl_Reset Rejecting Reset() call because the requested display mode is not supported
    warn:d3d:IWineD3DDeviceImpl_Reset Requested mode: 800, 594

Can't Launch/Install
by Owen on Saturday December 14th 2013, 21:33
Installed by copying/pasting disc files (from disc 1) into folder all that worked up until launching it. The EAW launcher worked, but it couldnt find the disc. The FOC launcher did not have the white box (i tried a while ago, and i got that), but the buttons wouldn't work.
I tried installing from the disc, don't really know why i didn't do that in the first place, but Terminal won't let me eject the disc (when it prompts me for disc 2).

launch with start
by Kasperi Kuuskoski on Saturday September 6th 2008, 5:43
I had to start FOC with

wine start /Unix /Path_to_game/swfoc.exe

with normal "wine /Path_to_game/swfoc.exe" it did not work. Also, the launcher didn't work.
Can't start the game

The installation part proceeds normally, but when I try to load the game I get an empty text box. I do have corefonts installed.

I am trying to play the game on Mac and when I try to start it (even when opening swfoc.exe directly) it just comes to a black screen and when I alt+tab there is a little box that says "exception" telling me to come here for tips. Please help.
