Problems with "Descent 3" using wine; and does American McGee's Alice work with wine?
Just in case you need to know:
Using MandrivaLinux 2006
Descent 3 and Alice are both "Windows"
AMD 64 bit Processor (x86_64)
A GeForce 6600GT NVidia Card
I installed Descent 3 with "Wine" and it did install the game, but I'm seeing a few problems.
One is that right after the game is installed, it asks to see a preview of some other game. I can only click 'ok', no cancel or exit, or "x", nothing, so as soon as I click on "ok", i get this "directdraw" error, assuming it's not installed or something. If I remember correctly, it may look like "initfailed!
In setup "video", I don't see anything on my graphic card, no openGl, but rather "Direct3D - DirectDraw HAL" & "Direct 3D - User (& GDI)
Also, when I try to play the game, it says "insert disc 1" It is in there, but refuses to get any farther.
Also, does American McGee's Alice work with wine? I ordered it, but have not received it yet. May not for a few more days.
