View Full Version : Populous - the Beginning

Hey folks. I recently found my old Populous cd, and thought I'd try it with wine. According to the wine HQ database, PtB will work - under ubuntu 8.10.

With the new version of wine and ubuntu 9.04 I can get it to install, but it won't run. Nothing happens at all when I try to start the game.

I'm running 9.04 AMD64 version. Would that be a factor?

Um read sticky on before posting (wine version? terminal output? cookie? yes I want a cookie), but make sure you have wine 1.1.24. 1.0.1 that comes by default is too old.
