Re: Drauger / Linux OS - Installation and installing Battlefield 1942

...

You can install a 32 Bit Version of Wine inside PoL in Drauger

Btw. there should be also a Log from the Installer.  There you see what is missing.  (In Drauger i did not check it, in !Pop i did.)

...

Ya, you need also d3dx9.dll beside the core fonts and tahoma.


Check dis.

Just saw that "Run a local script" Button in POL.


This here is from Lutris, not Pol, but i think i saw also once one for PoL

Re: Drauger / Linux OS - Installation and installing Battlefield 1942

theres no such thing like wine32. u tell wine to use its 32-bit stuff by

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=path_to_wineprefix winecfg 

and while ur at it: see that "usefull" lib32 things got installed along too, like lib32-mesa,lib32-pulse, and so on.

https://www.winehq.org/ has all the infos.

PoL is just a frontend to wine, why not read up wine-stuff first?

wineprefix: that practically ur former win-installation. one game goes into one wineprefix. dont mingle it. if something goes south, just delete that wineprefix and start over.

E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.


hemp. this is what i get when typing your command in terminal

[email protected]:~$ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=path_to_wineprefix winecfg
it looks like wine32 is missing, you should install it.
as root, please execute "apt-get install wine32"
wine: invalid directory path_to_wineprefix in WINEPREFIX: not an absolute path


the question is do other versions of wine crash with the one i try to install?

i followed this  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wx8NbZEAPNM

Re: Drauger / Linux OS - Installation and installing Battlefield 1942

jorgen,
u sure replaced that path_to_wineprefix to some directory like "~/wineprefixes/BF1942-HD" - right?

my bad, it looks like ubuntus multi-lib environment is still meh... and a working bf1942 installation depends on a lot of lib32 stuff that needs to get installed too.

Once when you'll get tired struggling with Ubuntu+Wine and decide to reinstall the OS, try Fedora Linux. I have Wine Staging, it just works for me.

Re: Drauger / Linux OS - Installation and installing Battlefield 1942

My second OS is also Ubuntu 20.04.5 on a separate M.2 NVMe drive, and Battlefield 1942 + mods work really well as well as fast-user switching (aka pressing Alt+Tab) is now possible.

The only problem I encountered that it's difficult to create a desktop shortcut for BF1942 mods that does not create one during the installation process like Eve of Destruction or Experience WWII, since Wine Launcher Creator haven't been updated since 2013.

i had the same issue. to run the game from dashboard i created bf1942.desktop file, putted it into

/usr/share/applications/

and added the following lines

[Desktop Action Fix_display]
Name=Fix display
Exec=xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1440x900 --rate 75 --output VGA-1 --mode 1440x900 --rate 75

and used this option every time my screen resolution changed after leaving the game

to see your available displays/video outputs you can run xrandr tool with no arguments

PoP was okay otherwise?  When I used it for a month, it had a nice look and feel,
but began having strange issues, so I ended back on Win10.

Re: Drauger / Linux OS - Installation and installing Battlefield 1942

lol jorgen, I see you're on Fedora too now. Good. I think I will be doing some distro hopping now just for fun.

In the beginning I liked the distros where I would have to get my hands dirty. I used Slackware for many years. But then I got tired because of all the software compilation stuff. Wanna use that video editor? Just compile it yourself. It takes only 3 days, lol. Nowadays I use mostly Debian or Ubuntu-based distros because of the wide range of pre-compiled packages. I guess I've become a bit lazy when it comes to Linux.

@Jorgen.

GPU Driver should not be a Problem for !Pop_OS

I guess you took the wrong Download.

There are 2 Download-Buttons on the HP (nVidia or AMD)
