Thread: Wine Trouble

    Wine Trouble

    i installed the newest wine 2003115 and it wont let me run the game half-life. it installed fine but told me i needed to have to run higher than 16bit on the deskmod. so i changed my wine config to say this.

    [x11drv]
    ; Number of colors to allocate from the system palette
    "AllocSystemColors" = "100"
    ; Use a private color map
    "PrivateColorMap" = "N"
    ; Favor correctness over speed in some graphics operations
    "PerfectGraphics" = "N"
    ; Color depth to use on multi-depth screens
    "ScreenDepth" = "32"
    ; Name of X11 display to use
    ;;"Display" = ":0.0"
    ; Allow the window manager to manage created windows
    "Managed" = "Y"
    ; Use a desktop window of 640x480 for Wine
    "Desktop" = "640x480"
    and i dont get an error on startup because when i opened it nothing happens, if i try from console i get.

    bash-2.05a$ wine hl.exe
    fixme:reg:RegFlushKey (0x6c): stub
    fixme:system:ChangeDisplaySettingsA ((nil),0x00000000), stub
    flags=
    fixme:system:ChangeDisplaySettingsA devmode=NULL (return to default mode)
    anyone know the problem?

    i had something like that - seems like removing ~.transgaming is what fixed it...

    X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
    Major opcode of failed request: 1 (X_CreateWindow)

    Good luck on using it with just Wine. WineX will do the job just fine though. ;D

    It's worth the $$$. Trust me. Or you can always find someone to give it to you. :P

    I have gotten half-life to work in software mode with winex. Also got it to work under codeweavers wine ( all the way to the splash screen frooze after that since i dont have a video accelerator ). Try codeweaver if you have a video accelerator this comes with all sort of fancy wine setup tools and what not. Codeweaver
