I have just gotten Cross of iron running on puppy Linux 5.11

screen shots to follow..

1. Install WINE

2. just install from the Cd - Double click on the exe

3. Then run the Wine regedit - Turn off videos (otherwise "Format on Stream error)

4. Then run the wine file manager and double click cc3.exe


Voila!

installed the more robust Ubuntu 10.10
coi installed and plays fine so far.
had to copy the installer from the cd to the desktop was the only quirk.

Also updated fine using thebuilt in update chexker.

mmcc3 is not working, throwing up some jjava errrors.

modswap runs but I havent tried any mods yet.

Due to improved handling of .tga s by Wine?

It would make sense. At my last try Wacht am Rhein was working under the bonnet; it just wasn't graphically obvious.

Hi,

What key do you have to change in the Registry to turn off the videos?

Best,
Michał
