wine does not function after install of brothers in arms game

Post by bokkiwokki » Mon Nov 25, 2019 12:33 pm

Dear wine lovers,
I am new to linux and want to give it a serious try, done with windows. for fun i want to play some old games of brothers in arms. First i installed road to hill 30 and that worked fine, can play the game and working fine. After that i installed earned in blood. From that moment on wine does not work anymore and is unable to start the first game. I have a report from wine:
Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0xffffffffffffffff in 64-bit code (0x000000007bc46300).

Several things you could try:
- Install both games in a separate Wineprefix.
- Try the games with Wine Devel or Wine Staging.
- Try a 32 bit Wineprefix.
- Don't install DirectX 9c or other software bundled with the games.

Wine 4.0 is very dated now... So you'd probably want to try with the latest stable version: 4.0.3
Or (more ideally for gaming) use the latest Wine Development or Staging releases, currently: 4.20
See: WineHQ Wiki: Ubuntu.

Please, in future, use the forum Code tags if you're going to put dumps of code (+commands) in a forum post.
It'll make your post easier to read, if the code snippet is quite small...

Code: Select all
