(Puppy Dingo) Wine and AOE II Configuration Questions
I recently setup Puppy Dingo on an ancient laptop for someone else, and I have been impressed by the performance, which, although slow, is about as much as we can ask for on a 96mb 4 gig HD and super slow processing laptop. I am also an avid Ubuntu user (on my laptop).
Anyway, I configured Wine successfully and got Age of Empires II fully installed (and the no-CD patch so it can be played on multiple computers and to compensate for the poor CD reading ability of the laptop). When I went to play it, it started to load but then it said something like, "Error: The graphics card is not DirectDraw capable." I was wondering if there is any feasible way to fix this problem. I know it could actually just be an error because the graphics card is truly to old to run Age of Empires, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions before I uninstall everything.
I'd rather be driving Linux...it doesn't crash.
