"Could not create video surface from file" on Linux/wine[message #349978] Mon, 05 June 2017 15:41

Registered:September 2009
Hi, after a few years, I wanted to dig out Ja2 1.13 again. Unfortunatelly I can't start the game, because I get this error message:
Ja2 Fatal Error
FIle: vsurface.cpp
Line: 1050
Location: CreateVideoSurface
Could not create video surface from file:

I tried a couple of different recent unstable releases (from SCI_Unstable_Revision_8345_on_GameDir_2349.7z onwards), all with the same result. I'm not sure, if this is related to wine, or if there is something else wrong. The file itself is found in Data and Data-UB.
My install is a (German) Ja2 1.02, update this to 1.05 and then extracted 1.13 in this folder.
Hope anyone can help me!
