I can get vanilla 1.12 gog install to run under wine. My problems start after I apply the full mod and then the update to it. It works for some individuals and for me, I get fatal errors.

File : .\sgp.cpp
Line : 735
Location : InitializeStandardGamingPlatform
Initializing Virtual File System failed

WINE Version, 1.7.5

How I installed and mod'd the install. I created an empty wine prefix. Then, used WINEARCH=win32 along with the WINEPREFIX to newly created directory. followed by gog installer.

Once Installed, I test to make sure the game runs and it does. I proceed to mod it by installing the Full mod followed by the patch.

When I return to run the game, I get the above error.

I have dug around the Internet and not found any substantial solution or reason for the error. Any assistance or insight would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I stumbled on the solution. I was attempting to start the executable with:

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine-ja2/" wine explorer /desktop=JA2,1024x768 .wine-ja2/drive_c/ja2/ja2.exe

By changing into the .wine-ja2/drive_c/ja2 directory and then using the above command without the path to the executable, just ja2.exe, the game launched just fine.
