View Full Version : I'm having a problem running Sony's Infantry Online with wine.

It installs fine, but when I run it, it get to the zone selection screen and when I select a zone, where it would normally start downloading fiiles, the screen goes black. Any ideas on what might cause this? I looked on the wine website and they say it runs. I am running it in a virtual desktop, but I tried both ways.

I know this post is old, but I'll answer the question in case anyone else is having this problem.

I play Inf in wine all the time, and there are a few things that must be right. Color depth must be set to 16-bit, and you must play in windowed mode. Full-screen doesn't work, at least for me.

Everything else works just fine, as far as I can tell. I normally play in Archlinux or PCLOS, but this worked when I play in Ubuntu as well on my desktop at work :)

I don't think there is any way to tell wine to pretend it is has 16 bit color depth. I changed the color depth in xorg.conf to 16 and now infantry works fine.
