I am extremely new to Ubuntu, been using it for a couple years but I'm not too versed on the technical side at all.
I've tried to install games on Vine a couple times but never got anything to work properly, so I always kept Win7 on dual boot to switch over for gaming.
Now I've decided I want to play Heroes of Might and Magic 3 again. This is what I did:
I have Wine and Winetricks installed.
I got the GOG.com version of HOMM3.
I executed the install.exe file. Installation with Wine went fine.
I got the widescreen HD patch (https://sites.google.com/site/heroes3hd/)
I started the patch - a window appears. I hit Launch. I get a black screen and I see the HOMM3 cursor - but Wine freezes and must be forcefully terminated. I am using Ubuntu 12.04.
Can anyone give me a hint on what to do? I really don't have any idea.
