Just not going along with the WINdowsEmulator very well...

 

Wine Is Not an Emulator btw

 

Can you see the debug log ?

here's some of the gibberish:

' has unknown registry 'sunolcursor' and character encoding '1'
fixme:font:LFD_InitFontInfo font '-sun-open look glyph-----10-100-75-75-p-101-sunolglyph-1' has unknown registry 'sunolglyph' and character encoding '1'
...blah, blah, blah...
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x7bce0580 "loader.c: loader_section" wait timed out in thread 001d, blocked by 0020, retrying (60 sec)

anyhoo - wouldn't it be named WINAE or perhaps better EFWIIN (Emulator For Windoz It Is Not?) - who puts an acromnym in the acronym anywayz? (i.e. NYPD is NYPD Yanks People Down - rediculous, eh?)

GNU and other open source project (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recursive_acronym).

 

Did you use winecfg to change the windows version to 98 ? (configuration panel or during installation)

GNU and other open source project (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recursive_acronym). - exactly my point!

 

Did you use winecfg to change the windows version to 98 ? (configuration panel or during installation) been there - did that (Win95 that the game was made for, and Win98)

OK - so the game would be running like crap on linux anyway when not using 3DFx....Soooooooooooooooooooo
Uninstalled it and will continue to use my Windows 98 with my awesome Voodoo 5500 VidCard to run this fantastic game.

...this was just an experiment anyway - exploring linux and gaming (turns out even with POL and other WINdowsEmulator addons the install is a nightmare, running unstable, and often ends in not running at all after all the grief.)

CONCLUSION: use Win98 for CD games - WinXP for DVD gaames - online gaming just feel pity for the industry...

You know, a lot of games work just fine :)

Sad to see you go.
