Hello,

sincerely yours

In some computers taskset -c 0 doesn't work correctly - I changed it to taskset -pc 0 $$ - it's a fix for "lag fix" :)
Friday 11 July 2014 at 1:03 -
The best is to make a configurator, like http://www.playonlinux.com/en/topic-8391-Far_Cry_GoG.html (line 147)
Friday 11 July 2014 at 1:59 -
Can I get from registry a value from selected key (for example HKLM/Software/BlaBlaGame/InstallPath)? Or get installation path from installer, or change install path by command line? :)

That taskset thing also didn't work for me with the old version of the script, although manually starting the game with taskset -c 0 wine does work (using the same wineprefix etc). I'm not sure if this works, but I'll test it. Also, wine 1.5.0 is a bad choice in my case, since the GOG installers don't seem to work.
Friday 11 July 2014 at 11:25 -
This is not a script for the GOG edition
Friday 11 July 2014 at 12:06 -
@odziom91, why do you need the install path?
Friday 11 July 2014 at 12:24 -
I need the install path to another game - to copy one file into game catalog. I create a script to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat but I need to insert dskquoui.dll file. :)
Friday 11 July 2014 at 13:27 -
I don't understand
Friday 11 July 2014 at 15:05 -
STALKER require na dskquoui.dll file to work, but if I insert this into C:\Windows\System32 it doesn't work. In game catalog works correctly. Maybe I do something wrong.
Friday 11 July 2014 at 15:18 -
We are not on STALKER script, are we? To answer your question, assume that the user installed the program in the default directory

Friday 11 July 2014 at 22:39 -
I know this is not a GOG script, but it basically is the same. If you don't like mixing that I would take this script and modify it to work for the GOG installer, if odziom91 doesn't mind.
Friday 11 July 2014 at 23:21 -
Indeed, you could make another script for the gog version. You have many examples of GoG scripts available
Saturday 12 July 2014 at 22:57 -
I don't see any problem, to "copy" this script and modify to GOG version. :) But I don't have this version, so I can't help you Kumo. :(

Is it possible to write an Installer for the GOG Version of "The Settlers 3 - Ultimate Edition"? That would be beyond great!
Saturday 8 November 2014 at 17:15 -
I don't have any of the settlers games, so somebody else will have to write one...

Monday 12 September 2016 at 14:40 -
I got the GOG Version installed by first using the script here, then editing the (failed) installation and reinstalling plus adding the gdiplus library. But I can not minimize the game to go back to desktop. Does anyone have a clue how to fix that?
Anonymous
Monday 12 September 2016 at 14:56 -
Oh and the Ubuntu menu bar is visible all the time, cutting of a small part of the game screen. Any fix for that as well? :) Thanks!
Wednesday 14 September 2016 at 23:39 -
Hi pyq! Unfortunatelly I don't have a GOG version of this game... This script should work fine with standalone version. But... If it is possible to fix, please send little "How To" - maybe I will create "an option" for GOG Installer. :)

This is awesome! I actually wanted to start POL scripting myself just to do this, but now you beat me to it ;). I also like that you offer choosing an arbitrary file. However, I think one still needs an option for the GOG version since that adds another executable that should be used. If used like this, the game always asks for the CD-Key after it started even if it was always entered before.

Also, I think these days most people can run 1024x768 and so I would suggest to add that to the registry fix.

Now the only thing I'm missing is getting rid of the other movies so that I can play the mission. (That seemed to be less a problem for me with the latest 1.5 version of wine by the way.)

I don't have time to test the modifications right now, but I will try to add them later if you don't mind or are faster than I.

Thank you for your opinion! :) In next release I will add a screen resolution selector and shortcut to S3SETUP.EXE file (S3 Configuration) to change options after install a game. :)
Thursday 10 July 2014 at 21:47 -
About 1024x768 resolution - I tested this with my S3 copy, but it doesn't work. 800x600 looks ok. It's a xrandr command problem, sooo it should work on another computers, but with no warranty. For me 1024x768 works correctly with wine 1.3.12 (or new to 1.5.7 version). Newest version of wine have regression of bug 31245 (WineHQ Bugzilla). So, can I create a "multi-version" prefix of Wine? Explain: If select 640x480 or 800x600 - create 1.7.21 prefix, if select 1024x768 - create 1.3.12 (or other to 1.5.8).
Thursday 10 July 2014 at 22:06 -
OK, I decided to change wine version in prefix to 1.5.0. Why? This version works correctly with films (it's problem with fullscreen play), so we can play campains. :) 1.5.0 works great with xrandr.

Ok, that thing with the resolution is weird. I also noticed that one can actually change the resolution in-game by using F1-F3 (I think it was those). But I'm not sure if that's saved.

Sorry, "accidentially" hit return. (There isn't an edit option?) About the 1.5 Version: That's cool, I'll have to try if movies work for me too. Although I didn't try, appdb.winehq says that versions lower thatn 1.5.26 had often freezes in multiplayer :/.
Friday 11 July 2014 at 12:55 -
I will try to change this version to another, but now we must be happy for single player mode.

Alse the code from POL_Wine (Line 70 to 75) is redundant :) You can factor it.
Also, to write in a file, you can use the cat << EOF syntax

Good work! Some tips:
- Check if "$POL_OS" = "Linux" before inserting taskset on the shortuct
- Line 68, you should generate a real .reg file and exec it
- Some line are not well idented

Could you tell me more about point 3? :) Any suggestions? :)
Sunday 6 July 2014 at 22:59 -
Just replace " if [ "$APP_ANSWER" == "0" ]; then" by "if [ "$APP_ANSWER" == "0" ]; then"
(Same for the elses, fi, etc ...)
