Hi,

I've get an error message during starting the game that tells me that I used to have a soundcard installed to play GTA IV. yes Sure I got a soundcard installed. The descriped error will show up from GTAIV started in wine not( ! ) PlayOnLinux or wine itself!

My install:

1. Copied all the installation files of GTAIV to hdd, because during installation the setup doesn't recognize that I changed the disc already to continue setup.

2. Start the script and choose "Digital Download Version" - all things done well

3. Install 1.0.7 Patch Script - also all things successfull

4. Start the game - Will get the error message from GTAIV that a soundcard is missing... sad

I'll test a few things for a workaround and I'll tell you if I have found a solution.

Please tell me if you miss any additional information.

My Specs:

OS: elementaryOS 0.2 "Luna" (Ubuntu 12.04 "Precise")

CPU: Intel Core2Duo @ 2.18 GHz

RAM: 4 GB

GPU: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 with 512 MB RAM

Did you change the Wine version used?

If you upgraded Wine to any version >= 1.4, you have to remove the disabling of mmdevapi:
Right-click on shortcut > Configure Wine > Libraries tab > mmdevapi > "Remove" button > Ok
