Yes, I am interested if anyone has gotten this game to work? Also, getting a logitech wingman cordless gamepad to work has been a major problem for me.

i got fifa 07 running BUT....the graphics in the actual game are running far too slow, but this is how i got it going, maybe one of you can get it right:

1.i created an iso file of the original dvd
2.i mounted the iso: sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 fifa07.iso /media/cdrom0
3.at one point the program freezes on ereg.exe, so kill ereg.exe and the install will continue. do not install the online options.
4.i copied a cracked fifa.exe to .wine/drive_c/program files/EA sports/fifa 07
5.i typed wineboot and a fifa icon appeared on my desktop.

good luck

Remember everyone, if you have any success getting windows games working under wine, be kinda and add your info to: The Wine App Database (http://appdb.winehq.org/)

Currently there isn't a page for FIFA 2007, so anyone with the game and enough interest can make one. :) This has done wonders for compatibility improvements via the development team as well and fan modifications of wine and it's many libraries (world of warcraft for example has come a long way).

You may also want to try running games in virtual wine desktops (example):


#! /bin/bash
cd /locationoffifa
WINEDEBUG=fixme-all,err-all,warn+cursor,-all wine explorer /desktop=nameofwinedesktop,1024x768 fifa.exe

This forces the game to run in a box on your desktop that's 1024x768 and removes almost all of the winedebug spam you would normally see in a terminal (this can improve your framerate slightly depending on your hardware, but it's not the end all solution, it's helpful to me anyway). This will also (mostly) prevent any chance of the game stealing your mouse and keyboard essentially locking up your system (like worms4 did to me for about a week lol).

Good luck.

same problem here

In addition, the game crash in strartup with wine 0.9.41 and 0.9.42 :'(

Edit : I fixed the speed problem using "vista emulation" in winecfg and setting the CPU speed on "performance"
Edit 2 : I use now wine 0.9.40

hoping it helps ;)

I would love to play Fifa 07 on my Linux. Could you post your wine settings because whatever I do it always crashes.

I tried with wine 9.33 or with 9.42 and both completely freezes my PC as soon as the game starts. This happens with the cracked exe. If I don't apply a nocd patch it always complains about the cd.

Please help, I really love that game.

Fifa07 is working when I enable the option "emulate virtual desktop". Did somebody made it work in Fullscreen?

yes it works in fullscreen for me, but , I must run the game in a wine virtual desktop because when I quit the game my desktop résolution is changed in 1024x768 whereas my screen resolution is 1440x900 :(

works out of the box with the latest version of Wine.

Can somebody tell me if fifa 08 works too ?

have a look on the wine app db (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=9476).

I personally play the game with Cedega and that works fine without any problems.
