Game Testers needed - list of gog games which have problems with wine

Post by qarmin » Mon Jun 08, 2020 5:23 am

Hi,
Recently I checked a lot of titles from my gog collection if are supported well on clear wine(without DXVK, proton etc).
A lot of works fine, but some have a problems.
I'd appreciate your help in reporting bugs(needs to be checked if is not a duplicate issue).

I tested they mostly with Wine-staging 5.9 and only some with Wine-devel 5.10 on Ubuntu 20.04 and Nvidia 970
List of gog games which doesn't work very well on wine:

7th Legion - Crash after playing intro video
8-bit Armies - Crash when running
A Golden Wake - Mouse is broken
Act of War High Treason Copy 3 - Screen is too small
Age of Wonders - Shadow Magic - Screen is black and probably mouse not working
Alien vs Predator Classic - Red border around letters
Anno 1404 - Crash when running - DXVK doesn't help and changing from Directx10 to 9 also
Apache vs Havoc - Black Screen probably due to waiting for resources(0024:err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection)
Apotheon - Crash when running - even installing DotNet 4.8 doesn't help
Aqua Kitty Milk Mine Defender - Crash with strange error - Installing DotNet 48 instead Mono fixes issue

looked at a couple I have on steam

Bastion - seems to work?
Escape Goat - I get that error but appears to work with 'winetricks xna40'

haven't looked at Baldur's Gate 2 yet but that and the other two have linux versions on steam at least

Hi,
Baldurs Gate Original Saga works fine on wine 5.0.1 with the following workarounds:
.) create a 32 bit wineprefix and set the windows version to 8 (if the gog installer for BG thinks its being installed on windows 7 it will install its own ancient wined3d version to work around some windows 7 bug; we don't want that)
.) install the game, then change the windows version to windows 98 before running the game (any newer windows version leads to stuttering and strange mouse movement, but windows 98 works great)

Hello,
Regarding Corsairs Gold, you need to emulate a virtual desktop in winecfg for corsairs.exe to get rid of the half screen issue.
It mostly works but boarding scenes don't : black screen (wine 5.0) or slowness issues especially with mouse (wine 4.0).
Regards.
