Help Getting Viva Pinata to Run through Wine

Post by bunbunbunns » Wed Oct 07, 2020 4:58 am

Hello. I've been trying to get Viva Pinata to run through wine on Linux, and fortunately I am able to get it running. However, there are no gameplay audio (only cutscene audio). After looking through the logs, I found this line repeated a bunch of times:

Code: Select all

00fc:err:xact3:IXACTEngineImpl_CreateSoundBank Failed to CreateSoundBank: -2
I tried looking up about this and experimenting with different options, but to no avail. Does anyone know what this means, or lead me to the right direction? Thank you in advance! :)

Try installing xact with winetricks.

Code: Select all

winetricks xact
And try the game again.

Nevermind, I have found the problem. Turns out VP needs an older version of the XACT engine library installed. It wasn't installed with

Code: Select all

winetricks xact
but after tinkering around in the wine config (which is basically me installing all versions of the xact engine), I got the gameplay audio running. Thanks!
