    GameSpy Arcade on Wine


    Hi all

    I have Kubuntu 7.04 dist running, with 2.6.20 kernel
    I have been trying to execute GS Arcade on Wine for several weeks
    It is a shame cause I remember I could execute on an older dist... I don't understand how I can execute "harder" apps like 3D games, but I can't run GS

    That's the shout when trying to execute it

    wine Aphex.exe

    I have read the related bug at
    Bug 1880 – gamespy arcade crashes wine

    Try installing Internet Explorer then running with shdocvw set to native.
    We currently don't implement this DLL to any real extent.


    (I think) I have installed Internet Explorer, but...
    Now... the stupid question :S
    How can I run it with shdocvw set to native? How (and where) can I configure that?

    Solved

    Downloading & installing the GS Arcade through IE makes program run perfectly


    Note:
    I have installed IE this way
    Es/InstalaciĆ³n - IEs4Linux
    If you do the same you must take on care that IE creates its own wine drive
    folders, so you must put your folder games on it

    For example...
    I had some game on
    /home/USER/.wine/drive_c/Archivos de programa
    Then you must copy it on
    /home/USER/.ies4linux/ie*/drive_c/Archivos de programa

    ie* where * is the number of Internet Explorer version you want to use (I only
    could run GS at 100% with Internet Explorer 6)
