Black Screen With Audio on Prince Of Persia Two Thrones

Post by hardcoder32 » Sun Aug 26, 2012 12:32 am

I am using a Dell Inspiron 1525 and Linux Mint 13 KDE. I have installed Prince Of Persia The Two Thrones via both Wine and Play on Linux but both results in black screen. I can hear the sound as well as realise that the game menu has reached but no video. The Game flashes with some colors at the beginning and then black screen and then again some other color and then black screen.
Also My dell adapter is said to be unrecognized by the BIOS so the battery doesnt charge, and the cpu has been scaled down. But I fixed it with instructions at ... ubuntu-fix.
I dont know if this may affect the graphics.
Also if you need

$glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: Yes

$ lspci | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (primary) (rev 0c)

Also the game works when using the same laptop with windows, so it is not that the hardware is low.
