Is it possible to have CoD run under WINE?


I tried installing CoD but I can't get it to work! It says to uload the debugger. Also.. I didn't install DirectX 9.0b is it needed? Has anyone else run CoD under WINE?

Plain WINE (with the exception of the latest CVS sources) does not have DirectX 9 support nor can you install Microsoft's DirectX 9 package under it. Transgaming's Cedega is available for a small monthly fee at http://www.transgaming.com and will run Call of Duty. Cedega is a commercial version of Wine with DirectX 9 support.

If you are adventurous, you can download the WINE CVS sources (read the site for instructions) and compile them yourself. A few people have been working a lot on DirectX 9 support in vanilla WINE but most of the work has not made it to the binaries yet. You may or may not get Call of Duty to work using this method.

Well I compiled WINE but not from the CVS sources. Is there any difference?

Yes, the CVS sources have the latest and greatest code additions including the experimental/partial DirectX 9 support.

CoD will only work under Cedega and then it works quiet well.

There are occasional problems with punkbuster though and that aspect is not officially supported yet.

Expansions packs work fine aswell, UO is a blast

The debugger is run using the command winedbg <file.exe>. If you use the command wine <file.exe> the debugger isn't run.

Having said that, Frank's corner lists it as a runner under wine...doesn't say HOW though. Maybe he uses mesa headers or something.

nolimitz..oddly enough there are limitz; if you want help for 'proper' cedega BUY it.
cvscedega is free anyway and there are a host of howtos on how to configure that.

why not go over to http://ww.linux-gamers.net and do it properly?

ok cpufreak i did it, and this is the howto, please post if it workz...in your user's home folder, there's a transgaming_drive link.follow the link, press up, and u should be in a directory called /../.transgaming then , edit config file, and define the windows drives like this :
[Drive X]
"Path" = "/mnt/x"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "X drive"
"Filesystem" = "vfat"(if it's fat32, win95 if it's ext2 or fat16...)
remember, the partitions MUST be mounted...and do not try 2 replace c drive, even if u have win installed, it did not work 4 me...now, if this ain't working, do something like this :
on desktop->rite click->create new->link 2 aplication:
description = blablabla
command = cedega /mnt/path2cod
working dir = /mnt/path2cod
Remember, it is very important 2 set the working dir!!!and if the path contains spaces, it won't work(eg. /mnt/my games/cod).good luk.Remember 2 post if it workz.plz.NoLimitz.
and otchie, oddly enough, there aren't any...
