wine with halflife


i just recompiled wine to a more current version (Wine 20020804) and now cannot use the version command that has worked previously.

example:

wine --winver winme hl.exe -- hl.exe --console

this used to work.

now i am back to the error message that half life is only running in 16 bit color and needs to run in 24 bit color.

any ideas??

did you change your resolution or color depth of your X enviroment? perhaps the game doesn't change it automatically, so you just have to bump the color depth up a notch in your enviroment?
