pff,
I've used middle mouse button (mb2) for weapon drop/knife throw command. It works fine with windows but with wine it registers simultaneous press of left(mb0) and right(mb1) mouse button as middle button making it accidentally drop weapons in combat xD
I guess I'll just have to learn use keyboard then (F is way too awkward, maybe space...)

Hello, I was very interested in this project. Is there anyway I can help? I have ubuntu 7.04. I'll go to APPwine, I'll download wine as well. Is there any bugs/problems I can help you guys with?

I'll stay active, and keep informed.

wumpus: That's actually something in your xorg.conf file, its 3rd button Emulation. You'll probably want to turn it off. ;)

NK Soldier: Well...to tell you the truth Soldat 1.4 seems to work great on the latest versions of WINE, unless you know some really technical stuff with WINE itself (and why it might not register the key changes or something) there aren't any other bugs to worry about. :)

*talks to innerself* Oh yea, Soldat will finally work on Linux! Boo-Yeah!!!*

Ehem, Ok, I'm glad everything is fix, but I will seriously go into the heart of why the register keys won't work.  :)

I do know alot about Wine, and not just the normal stuff. I've been using it for awhile now, so I'll get digging.

hey, I was wondering if it's possible to get polyworks going with wine? jrgp says he hasen't been able to, but I was just wondering if there is some way to do it... it sucks having to keep switching to windows for polyworks then back to ubuntu for everything else...

Polyworks seems to rely heavily on too many Microsoft libraries or something. Trying it on my machine, errors are spit out everywhere about things that are only partially implemented. Who knows when all that will be completely implemented in WINE... :-X

You're only other option for now would be to run a virtualized Windows inside your Linux, but obviously that's less than optimal for trying to get a single program to work.  :-\

if you really want, you can sign up at winehq.com, submit Polyworks into the AppDB, and help them fix all the bugs for the program, so that it well eventually work (and perhaps fix a bunch of other programs as well).  ;D

I installed the VB runtime files from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=bf9a24f9-b5c5-48f4-8edd-cdf2d29a79d5&displaylang=en and on my first attempt with polyworks I got:

Code: [Select]

I got dx8vb.dll and another .dll from my XP into System32 in WINE, and Polyworks will start up, but spits a bunch of errors about DirectX initializing, and it won't show any tool windows or allow me to work on anything.

Check it out, a little recording for those who've never seen it, of Soldat under WINE.

Turn on video compatibility (compatibility_mode) in Soldat.ini and run Soldat in windowed mode.  See if those make a difference.


You can't solve that error, which is why we need to use video compatibility.  That means that the PATCHSEGMENTS method used by Soldat to draw things on the screen isn't yet implemented in Wine, but they know about it and plan to get around to it.

Are you using the OSS "ati" or "radeon" drivers, or the official proprietary "fglrx" drivers?

I installed both Wine (0.9.34) and Soldat (1.4.1), and I can't manage to make it work. I hope you guys can help me somehow.

When I start Soldat or Soldat config, I get this error

Code: [Select]
External Exception 80000100
Then, when the game shows up and everytime I click somewhere, I get this other windowed error:

Code: [Select]
Access violation at address 004F2836 in module 'Soldat.exe'. Write of address 00004B60.
At the same time, the terminal outputs this information:

Code: [Select]

wine: Call from 0xcbc2f3 to unimplemented function DDRAW.dll.DdEntry1, aborting
Wine failed with return code 1
knithx@knx:~$

Other observations: I see no maps in the map list, and the process has to be killed with CTRL+C in order to exit the game.

I have set Compatibility=1 in Soldat.ini.

What's wrong? Do I have to make any extra steps? Copy some files from Windows?

Thanks in advance.

Can you try a different version? What graphics card do you have too? It doesn't seem to initiate any DRI (Direct rendering...something...Interface?)

Now that it is possible to get Soldat working on Linux as well as you showed in that video, would it be possible for you to take the time to write step-by-steo instructions on how to do it (including video driver setup for nvidia/ATI, at least that has gotten easier in recent versions of ubuntu)

Hmm, does it work identically as it does in Windows? I mean gameplay-wise. No annoying bugs and so on?

Last time I checked, I lost my weapon random times, and tossed grenades randomly. I was not able to set keys from Soldat, so I had to set them manually in Soldat.ini and such.

Are the sounds working properly?

Incase it works.. I say goodbye to Windows!
