HowTo / Notes

The game crashes after start (when loading some 3D scene)

You can install VCStarter v1.7 BETA (more info at vietcong.info ), apply patch from 39057 or use Wine-Staging. See the corresponding bug report ( 9337 ) for more details.

The game crashes in campaign when radiocalls icon is shown.

Enable "Fix crashes in singleplayer on Windows Vista and up (radiocalls)" in VCStarter.
See the corresponding bug report ( 43567 ) for more details.

The game immediately crashes

Check your maps folder for number of downloaded maps. Game usually won't start when the maps folder contains more than about 500 maps (1000 files, since every map consists of two files).

Moving some of the maps into another folder (or deleting them) is the only working solution.

There are no servers found in in-game server list. Is Vietcong MP dead?

No it is not, but GameSpy support has ended. Vietcong now uses new master server: Qtracker. Add this line into your /etc/hosts (on your Unix system, not your Wine virtual disc):
65.112.87.186 master.gamespy.com
You can also use online server list at vietcong1.eu.

Connecting to a multiplayer server does not work

Install directplay using winetricks:

winetricks directplay
See the corresponding bug report ( 33295 ) for more details. With that the (lib32-)gnutls library might be required to run the game.
