    3. wine /pathtocdrom/setup.exe to install Prey.
    wine prey.exe in the installation directory to run the game.
    4. Nothing that I could detect.

    Try opening a terminal and typing "wine eject" - this command will tell the wineserver to release the wine processes still locking the CD (and therefore you'll probably get better results than just using the eject terminal command or pressing the button on the drive).

    Sweet, thanks for the tip!!! I'll try to install BG II with that. I've been putting it off because I didn't know of a way to deal with the eject issue.

    Edit: Didn't work for me.

    Re: Successful Wine Installations

    Game: Imperialism II (Frogcity)
    Wine Version: git-12052007 + patches (see below)

    to add patches:

    Code:
    cd wine-git/
    wget -qO - www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-patches/attachments/20070509/30cd6ce4/123db4b8476ad3b1e3cd945c00be97a70a4fcc72.bin | patch -p1
    wget -qO - www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-patches/attachments/20070509/2a09b994/f25150f3472fe0aab983384d14e8dacc56f595c5.bin | patch -p1
    wget -qO - www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-patches/attachments/20070509/acb0387d/d01ca3642f6f72d5a1589ab07348b1032151c731-0001.bin | patch -p1
    to install just compile the source in the normal way.

    These patches should be added soon to 0.9.38 so no need to patch soon.

    Re: Successful Wine Installations

    1. Game name and manufacturer: World of Warcraft/Blizzard

    2. How the installation went: Almost perfect

    3. What you did to get it running: I followed the WoW installation instructions here. Before I even loaded the game, I also did a search on the Ubuntu forums and on the Wine website for WoW issues.

    4. Glitches you noticed during game play: When I first loaded the game after all of the installs and patches and such, everything worked fine, but I had two mouse pointers and, twice during a raid that evening, I crashed. After looking into the problem, I realized I forgot to put -opengl at the end of my launch command. Once I did that, everything was great AND I have double the framerate I had when running in Windows. As an aside, I made my gaming PC a purely Linux PC when I installed Ubuntu for the first time.

    5. Wine Version used: 0.9.30

    --------------
    Note for Ubuntu newbies: I never even heard of Ubuntu before Wednesday, May 16, 2007 and had NEVER touched a Linux OS. On Saturday, May 19, I got the Official Book and took the plunge. If someone as new to Linux and Ubuntu as me can do this, I think most anyone can!

    Re: Successful Wine Installations

    1. MOHAA / EA Games
    2. Flawlessly (Was even able to insert 2nd disk)
    Problems: Mouse pointer: Game has trouble locking the mouse pointer to the EXE so it is impossible to turn and manuever in the game.

    What I Did: In the file browser I just right-clicked the setup on the disc and chose open with wine. Installer ran without a hitch and placed in the wine installation directory of /home folder/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/EA\ GAMES/MOHAA then I ran the game in both the terminal and from the file browser with no errors other than the one stated above. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    1. Jedi Knight 2 - Jedi Outcast / Lucas Arts
    2. Flawlessly
    3. Same as MOHAA
    4. None. Works greater if not better than windows

    Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe - Take Two Interactive

    It appears there's a problem with InstallShield when you try to install to a fat32 partition. I got an error which read "Unable to set time on file" or something along those lines. Any ideas? No problems whatsoever with an ext3 partition, though.

    Ran hddeluxe.exe through the Wine File browser.

    Some texturing glitches. Menu audio and music volume okay, but In-game audio too low. But that may be because I had Songbird open.

    Wine version 0.9.33
