If not has anybody tried it on WINE?

Hi

I have tried. It does not work with Crossover, but with latest Wineskin Winery it loads but crashes when trying to display the odds of a combat.
I feel that some Winetrick could make it work, but I am not savvy enough...

Regards

Returning to this thread, hoping for some love from the developers to make this game run under Wine on Mac OSX. I understand that the devs have probably very little interest in helping, which is a pity. TOAW IV and FOG2, run very well on Wine, and Flashpoint campaigns devs actively helped to create a Wineskin wrapper for their game.

Anyhow, the issue I have is this:

Using latest SC3 WIE versions (both 1.15 and 1,16 beta), under Wineskin (3.21 Engine), the game loads ok, the settings are accessible, every campaign loads ok, every menu appears correct, units move without issue, AI plays its turn OK. The only bug - unfortunately fatal - is that when I select a unit and hover over an enemy unit, the minimap is not substituted for the combat prediction panel, and an error is generated. The game than crashes to desktop.


I attach the error log.

Regards and happy new year

Hi Franciscus,

It might be a font issue on the Mac OS as the game uses Segoe UI quite a bit. Perhaps if this font can be installed on your computer it might resolve it?

Hubert, MANY THANKS

That was it.

I downloaded Microsoft fonts from here (https://static2.sharepointonline.com/files/fabric/fabric-website/files/segoeui_fabricmdl2_icon_fonts.zip) and pasted them on the Fonts directory of Windows folder of Wine.

Now the game plays GREAT !


Great !!

Hi Hubert

Only now I noticed that with WINE. the numbers of the supply levels graphic overlay in the map (hotkey S) do not show.

Probably some missing font...

Any tips ?

Regards

Solved by installing Core Fonts
