Can't run Nancy Drew games on Wine

Post by aelita » Thu Jul 02, 2020 3:05 am

Hi, I'm currently trying to play two Nancy Drew series games but I keep getting errors. If anyone has suggestions, that'd b great.

Alibi in Ashes
I thought there was an issue with not having the right fonts installed, but even after installing winetricks allfonts I kept getting the same error message/issues.
The program opens, but it only shows a black screen.
