This thread was created due to the experience of flaws by running JA2 V.1.13 under Wine for Linux.

Now let it be a short information, whether a version of JA2 V.1.13 (stable or SCI) works more or less well under Wine for Linux. Other Linux users are invited to contribute.



Tested with:

OS: Linux Mint 16
Wine: 1.4.1 (old version; newer version available).
Screen resolution: 1920x1080

Wine full screen mode: Working. Tested with 16:9 resolutions (1280x720, 1600x900 and 1920x1080).
Wine windowed mode: Working. Size in the ja2.ini should be adjusted accordingly. In addition "full size" has to be selected in the ja2.ini, because Wine and not JA2 itself takes care of the window mode.





For Unstable SCI version 6871:

Game: Most, not all, functions so far working. No slow down of menu animation rendering in the laptop screen.
Face Viewer: Basically working. No further testing.
Map Editor: Basically working. No further testing.




Not working / problems:

Game:
CTRL in tactical and sector inventory - When CTRL ist set to highlight the mouse pointer position (system preferences), this hotkey does not work. The same applies to all other combinations with CTRL.
When highlighting of the mouse pointer by CTRL is deactivated (system preferences), CTRL in tactical works (pick up items). CTRL + LMB in sector inventory moves an item from sector inventory to merc inventory instead of deleting the item. CTRL + SHIFT + E just opens the sector inventory but does not move items.

Merc Profile Editor: CTD right after loading for unknown reasons.

XML Editor: Black hole of problems

I tested the mentioned versions indeed with Wine 1.4.1, but I switched to the latest Wine version from SCI version 7066 on. You can get the latest Wine version for Debian/Mint/Ubuntu via Launchpad.
