Oh, right. My bad.

I'm fairly skilled with technology, so if you wrote a decent guide, I'm confident I'll get it to work.
far as I know it is decent.  people have gotten it working using the information that is there (though not actually FROM there) on OSX, and people have gotten it working on linux from there... I think.  at least I have becasue I documented exactly what I did and then told people.

so yeah.  try it and let me know if you run into a problem.

I've never played any of the LSLs.

There are a lot of old sierra games I haven't played that I should.

wine 1.3.4 is out!

not in repos yet, but I am compiling it and testing to see if anything works better/worse in tsl using this version.

mac users.  can one of you send me a copy of your tsl desktop/dock icon? I want to improve my desktop icon making script.  as it is its pretty ghetto.

I will be gone until this sunday or monday.

After that I won't be on much for the next few days.

after that... idk.

if you are having problems with wine (lol), you are on your own for the next week or so. (though the how to on the first page should be enough for most people to get it working)

I'll be around.

Right now I say just to support linux and mac users, but I doubt I  will keep to that.

I will be around for a while.

Soooooo, maybe ya'll have talked about this but when I tried to install MacPorts it said it couldn't install it because "XCodes" is not installed or "was installed with UNIX (10.5+) or Command Line Support (10.4) deselected."

This probably won't be a total shock but I have no idea what it's talking about. :P

1.3.5 is out.

compiling and testing.  Once again though, it shouldn't change anything.

Just don't use anything before 1.3.0 and you should be good. :)

I'm having sound issues in wine on my gentoo build of wine
I have no voices in game and the videos aren't playing.

and about 80% of the time when I close TSL wine crashes a kin to this:

wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x50015727 at address 0x4f742b (thread 0009), starting debugger...
Unhandled exception: page fault on write access to 0x50015727 in 32-bit code (0x004f742b).

(winetricks dotnet20 ogg mono26)
msi2 isn't needed to install it and actually I failed to install it with it installed in my TSL wineprefix

MSI2 was needed for me, but good job getting it without.

What wine version?  was it built with anything non standard?  what sound setup do you have?  alsa or oss?

gentoo build wine-1.3.4 fairly standard, alsa setup, both an USB audio(hw:1) and an spdif hda-intel(hw:0) (nVidia)

Code: (~/.asoundrc) [Select]
#pcm.!default spdif
pcm.!default hw:1

depending on which one I tested and either has the same issues in that case the USB Audio.
oh and I did try to listen to the other output while the first was default and vice versa... and they are
just silent (as expected)

[edit] I have to add... I can always hear the footsteps of the king when walking or running

File a bug report here:
http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=21456&iTestingId=57277&sAllBugs

(Posted on: October 25, 2010, 09:35:01 PM)


make a git build of wine in a custom directory.

get the lates git version... wine 1.3.5.  when you run configure install it to somewhere different with a command like this:
Code: [Select]
./configure --prefix=~/directory-for-wine/then the usual make and sudo make install.

then to run one, obviously instead of just running wine you will need to run ~/directory-for-wine/bin/wine.  make sure you set a wineprefix.  you might be able to use the one you already made.  if that still doesn't work, definatly file a bug report.  I haven't had this happen to me and I haven't looked into it much, but I think at least one other person had a similar problem, so we should all work and try to isolate this bug.

Hello, new to the forum!

I'm trying to get this to work on Ubuntu 10.04.  Anyway, I followed all of the instructions in the first post, but when I got to the part where I actually install TSL, it says that the Windows Installer Service cannot be accessed.  So I tried wiping out the .wine directory (I upgraded to Wine 1.3.6 just for this), reinstalling winetricks and the dotnet20 business, and still the same problem.  So then I tried the "older, harder way" for the native MSI, and I get the same error when I try to actually install TSL,  except I think it's worse because before I would actually see the installer window before it gave me the error, now it just gives me error.

If it's helpful, what it looks like in the terminal after I try to install TSL is:

Code: [Select]
err:process:__wine_kernel_init boot event wait timed out
fixme:sfc:SFC_3 0
fixme:advapi:SaferCloseLevel ((nil)) stub

The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance.

Anyway, I've done enough messing around with wine for one day.

wipe the wine directory again.

use the new way, with wine tricks.

run the installer using msiexec \i TSLwhateveritscalled.exe and then wine start whateveritscalled.exe
alternate between those and it should work after a few tries.

I still haven't figured out why, but whatever... it works its just a little buggy sometimes installing.

I wiped the wine directory, alternated between trying to install the msi file and start the game three times, and the exact same results all three times: the installer doesn't work, and when I try to start the game directly it says incorrect parameters (I forgot to mention that in my previous post).

There is a limit to the tedium I can take of doing the same thing over and over again.  I suppose I can try again tomorrow (to see if shutting down the computer and starting it again has any effect) but other than that, if I don't have any new tactic to try, I'm about ready to give up.

no no no... not start the game.
Code: [Select]
msiexec /i TSL-EP1+2.msi
wine start TSL-EP1+2.msi
big difference.
the second one should hang for a while and then work, or if your lucky the first one should work right away.
you probably will have some new tactics to try.  can you give me the exact error when it says incorrect parameters?  if you give me something more specific I can probably give you more things to try.
