Hi community,

first of all: thank you for PlayOnLinux! Such an amazing software.

Maybe my problem is trivial, nevertheless I cannot find a solution via google or otherwise: In order to run Fallout 2 (version from GOG) together with the Restoration Project on my Kubuntu 16.04. with wine I need to run Fallouts executable like this:

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ddraw.dll=n" wine FALLOUT2.EXE

or, alternatively, I should "set overrides in winecfg for fallout2.exe" (I am following this guide for fallout 2 & wine: https://falloutmods.fandom.com/wiki/F2RP_Technical_Info#WINE)

Can somebody explain to me how I can achieve this with PlayOnLinux?

(Both Fallout 2 and he Restoration Project Patch are already installed - no issues thus far)

Thanks in advance,

the VaultDweller

You can acces the wine configuration panel with the "configure" button > "wine" tab

Hi Tutul,

hm, ok, there (wine configuration) I have some tabs like Applications, Graphics, Libraries and so forth but I have no clue where or how I should set WINEDLLOVERRIDES... ? Although I am neither new to PlayOnLinux, Wine or even Linux I am somewhat at a loss here (feeling like a real n00b smiley).

De toute facon, merci pour ta temps!
