    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - WINE - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    I am trying to get Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (the RPG, not the MMO) to work on my system, but I seem to be running into difficulties.

    This is with plain WINE. I have tried PlayOnLinux and CrossOver as well to no avail, so I am back to plain WINE.

    The game installs and launches fine, however when I get past the intro "credits" (which play flawlessly) to the Main Menu, practically all meshes/textures are gone. I have attached screenshots to illustrate this.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    System Specs:
    OS: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    CPU: Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz with HyperThreading
    RAM: 4.5GB
    Video Card: ATI Radeon X600 (128MB)

    WINE Version:
    Code:
    robert@robert-Dell-DE510:~$ wine --version
    wine-1.5.16
    -NOTE: It is the absolute most recent one from the WINE PPAs -- not the standard Ubuntu repositories still on (I think) wine-1.4, although I tried that as the default, which didn't work; ergo my upgrading.

    Screenshots:

    Hey,

    May I ask which registry keys do you have in your Wine Regedit?

    That would make for a lot of keys to list off, 'eh?

    Whatever the defaults are.

    Not exactly =)

    Under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Software/Wine" have you ever made a Key named 'Direct3D'? If so, is there any registry key named "OffscreenRenderingMode" or any others?


    Edit! I've just remembered that problem. Could you please install driconf from Software Center and go into Image section and switch the S3TC texture compression to Yes?

    That should help you with your problem.

    I have installed DRIconf, but under the "Image Quality" section there is nothing mentioning anything about "compression." Perhaps I am overlooking it?

    Additionally, I do not have any such keys under regedit.

    Hey,

    Now I'm completely sure this is a texture compression problem since you don't have additional keys in your regedit.

    Under Image Quality section, there should be an option for S3TC.

    Just like this; (this might be an old version but there must be such option)

    Your video card does not seem to make the minimum system requirements for the game. The website says that you need a minimum of an X1800 for radeon, and you appear to be using an X600, which is not only a generation before the minimum, but also significantly slower than the minimum.

    This is from their official website:
    Processor:

    • AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+ or better
    • Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz or betterOperating System:
    • Windows XP Service Pack 3 or later

    RAM:

    • Windows XP: 1.5GB RAM
    • Windows Vista and Windows 7: 2GB RAM

    Note: PCs using a built-in graphical chipset are recommended to have 2GB of RAM.
    Star Wars: The Old Republic requires a video card that has a minimum of 256MB of on-board RAM as well as support for Shader 3.0 or better. Examples include:

    • ATI X1800 or better
    • nVidia 7800 or better
    • Intel 4100 Integrated Graphics or better
    While most people might say "well it will probably run with reduced frame rate", the X600 does not support the shader model 3 architecture that the game needs to even run. Perhaps this might be the reason why you are having rendering related errors?

    I think you have the wrong idea -- if I'm not mistaken, you seem to have assumed that I am trying to play "Star Wars: The Old Republic" when I am not. What I AM trying to play is "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic". As much is stated in the original post:

    I am trying to get Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (the RPG, not the MMO) to work on my system...
    I am sorry for any confusion that has occurred.
