Thx to GNU_Raziel for this test!

Comments : There seems to be a few errors in the install script for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

1. The first issue I had was the POL install script was in a foreign language. I was able to fumble my way through the install though.

2. The POL script prompted for the CD-ROM drive mount point for the source CDs. The mount point the openSUSE auto-mounter uses for CD-ROMs is:
/media/<CDlabelname>. I selected the only option on the list: /media/KOTOR_1. Then the script copied the contents of CDROM1 to the hard drive. When it completed, I was prompted for CDROM2. After I put the second CD in and clicked next, another prompt came up almost immediately asking for CDROM3. The same thing happened for the rest of the CDs. After several tries, I finally worked around the problem after CDROM1 finished being read by creating a symbolic link named /media/KOTOR_1 pointing at /media/KOTOR_2. I had to do the same thing for /media/KOTOR_3 and so on, after each CD was read.

3. The third problem was an error in the shell script /home/username/.PlayOnLinux/configurations/installed/Star Wars : Knights of the Old Republic. The error caused the POL menu link to be broken. I was able to edit the script, and correct the problem by changing the line:

cd "/home/username/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/SWKotor/drive_c/Program\\ Files/LucasArts/SWKotOR"


cd "/home/username/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/SWKotor/drive_c/Program Files/LucasArts/SWKotOR"

4. The POL install script placed a pixmap file in /home/user/.PlayOnLinux/configurations/installed and in my KDE 3.5 startup menu called SWKotor_config.xpm..This also created erroneous shortcuts in the POL and KDE menus. I'm guessing that this was intended to create a link for the swconfig.exe app, because the other link created, was a direct link to swkotor,exe, bypassing the launcher.

Also worth noting, Wine Version 1.1.26 had a problem with no working audio in game after the intro videos. I'm currently running it now with wine 1.1.18. I could not get it to start with full screen. I tried 5 different versions of wine with the same results. After changing the entry "Fullscreen=0" and "Refresh=0" in my swkotor.ini file, wine version 1.1.18 works perfectly. It won't start in fullscreen, but after it is running, I am able to select fullscreen on the window titlebar, and it runs in fullscreen without problems (can also press ALT-F3 with KDE). I am even able to use the hardware mouse and in game movies, without problems.

Third problem is solved. The installation script should be translated for new so it uses new POL frontend, then there would be less problems.

Please try again now.

I also installed this game and the script works flawlessly. My only question is that when I ran the configurator, it failed the video test and didn't recognized the installed video driver. I'm using a GeForce 9600GT with the x86_64 latest blob.

Can we add support for KOTOR on Steam?
GNU_Raziel Woensdag 29 September 2010 om 18:20

I will add Digital Edition support as soon as possible, this will probably also work with steam version.

It goes nicely through the steps to change cd. but forgets to actually start the installer.
I suspect the problem is the executable bit. I can only start the installer on wine command line and not directly with open with.
