Mario Forever 3: Game is running but i can move

Post by meyer » Sat Apr 14, 2018 2:03 am

Hi,

years ago i played the game mario forever 3 (version 4.4) on windows and i tried to run it on wine. the game can be installed and started without problems. but when the level select starts i can move mario. in the main menu i can set up the keys for moving, fire and jump. here nothing is set up. when i do this and try to start the game again it doesn't still work. it seems the keyboard settings will not be saved. i an other forum a user supposed it can be a problems with the registry. if so: how can i find what registry settings are changed when i do the correct keyboard settings? maybe installing the game on windows in a virtual machine and use something like a "registry sniffer" that records all changes to the registry?

i can't post terminal output because the game doesn't start when i try to start it with "run in terminal" in the settings of the desktop file.

You start the game manually from the command line (i.e. a BASH terminal), ala:

Code: Select all

cd "${WINEPREFIX:-${HOME}/.wine}/drive_c/Program Files/Super Mario Forever 2015"
wine 'Run Mario Forever 2015.exe' &>~/wine_super_mario_terminal_log.txt
Which save the log file: wine_super_mario_terminal_log.txt in your Linux user's HOME directory.

Little bedtime reading: :lol:

Mario Forever keyboard remapping works for me with Wine Staging 3.6 (but not with Wine Development 3.6).
So perhaps re-try with this Wine version?

This worked with winehq-staging 3.6 but not with the last version 4.0 rc7. Is there still an error or do i need to use the old version?

Are we talking about wine-4.0rc7 or wine-staging-4.0rc7 here? Because there is a huge difference.

For me wine-4.0 doesn't work, but wine-staging-4.0 does.

When you run the command "wine --version" in the terminal, what does it say?

I went back to the wine from the ubuntu repository because mario forever is the only windows application thats needs a specific wine version.
but wine-staging-4.0 does.
you mean wine from that repository?

But the winehq repo also has different version...?

Just install wine-staging from the winehq repos.

OK, now its working with wine-staging 4.0rc7. I've disabled the repo to prevent updates because it isn't working with wine-staging 4.2.

Strange, because it works fine for me with wine-staging-4.2.
