Wine woes


Hi,

I'm trying to get System Shock 2 running on my EEEPC (running the default Xandros), but I'm having a few issues. So here's what's happening:

1. The game installs fine (I'm installing it to a 2G SD card)

2. To get the game running, you have to patch it to version 2.3, then apply a no-cd crack (WINE doesn't like the CD protection apparently).

3. So I try patching the game to version 2.3, but the patcher fails saying that it failed to update time/date stamps.

4. So I download another no-cd crack (for version 1.5), but when I unzip it on the SD card, it keeps saying "chmod (file attributes) error: Operation not premitted (warning) cannot set times"

5. I try running the new no-cd patch, but it won't work with wine.

6. I noticed that if I unzip the new no-cd patch as root, I don't get the can't set times errors. So I try running the patcher as root, hoping it won't have any problems settings time, but as root wine won't run the patcher. The only output I get is:

"exename: shock2.exe
exename: shock2.exe
Wine exited with a successful status"

And so, I have no idea where to go from here. Any ideas?

Can you set write permission on the file for your user?

I also have an EEE. Running Arch however.

If i follow you correctly: WINE won't play the game off of the disk so you're trying to NO-CD crack it. You have to patch the game to 2.3 but the patcher failed. So you try to use a different no-cd crack (what happened with the first one) which is for version 1.5. If you need to have version 2.3 to play i think you should forget about the old crack, no? We should prolly just forget about all the cracks until you can get the game up to the correct version.

that said, just searched "wine System Shock 2" in google and came up with:
http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=2270
which would likely be of interest to you!

I managed to get the game running, but unfortunatly I had to resort to using another (win xp) machine to patch/crack the game. But, it works now. Thanks for the help though, I really do appreciate it.
