Gonna buy War in the East this week. Got a question first - is anybody using wine or crossover (codeweavers). I have a new M1 Mac. Tried to boot up War in the west but it froze in executing air phase (Shopuldnt its higher end) It says on codeweavers site War in East works (“runs well with 4 stars) but it also says war in the east worked well (4 stars) although this was on earlier version on Codeweavers and not an M1.
Thanks ahead of time

John

I have WITW and WitP:AE running on linux/wine with no problems. WITE2 loads and runs, but the map graphics are bunged. The units show ok, but the map hexes do not. Menus, dialogs, etc. are all ok. This was the original release of WITE2; I have not tested the updates.

I thought this strange as WITW is just fine. But I did not delve any deeper into why the map graphics weren't working.

Update: It will work in vanilla wine. Do NOT install the DirectX from the WitE2 installer. Use 'D3DX9' (the generic D3DX redistributable) from winetricks. I think wine's D3DX is missing a feature used by WitE2.

There is one problem remaining, but not a show-stopper. When you leave a scenario for the main menu, then go to load a saved game, there's an unhandled exception (i.e. crash). But the workaround is easy - when you leave a scenario, exit and restart the game.

Not sure if Crossover works yet with M1 Macs (even less sure about virtualization like VMWare) but I know that Crossover 21 will be released soon

Nothing works so far for the M1 Macs. I have tried Parellels, VMware, Wine, and Crossover. Many things are in the works but nothing on stable ground so far. If you find something that does work please let me know.

Thank you much!

This was two months ago when I tried.

supposedly crossover 20 was made for m1 Macs - some games i.e warplanes play quite well

Crossover does work with the m1 - its on mine. The question is does WITE 2 work on an m1 with it. WITW froze but i think it was i put in i frame.net and you didn’t need it in that

Well, then, try this (posed in the other thread):

What I have done to have the game running on my Imac 27 from 2019:

- Installed WITE2 in a Windows 10 bottle (32 bits, not 64), using latest Crossover version (20.0.4)
- Did not install .NET or directx via Matrix installer
- Installed .NET 4.7.2 in the bottle
- Installed Directx for modern games in the bottle
- Installed DirectMusic in the bottle (it installs an old Directx) - otherwise no music


I also changed some Graphic settings in Wine Configuration:

- emulate a virtual screen (1920x1080)


Sometimes the games hangs, but I think that it is related to music and it gets more stable turning off (zero) music.

The intro movies do not play


Cheers

Well, made a new install in a Windows 10 64 bits and it seems to:
- do not need .NET installation
- maybe runs better (still not sure)


So, as of today:


What I have done to have the game running on my Imac 27 from 2019:

- Installed WITE2 in a Windows 10 64 bits bottle 64, using latest Crossover version (20.0.4)
- Did not install .NET or directx via Matrix installer
- Installed Directx for modern games in the bottle
- Installed DirectMusic in the bottle (it installs an old Directx) - otherwise no music


I also changed some Graphic settings in Wine Configuration:

- emulate a virtual screen (1920x1080)


Sometimes the games hangs, but I think that it is related to music and it gets more stable turning off (zero) music.
