Hello there, i face a problem with the game. I am trying to run it on Linux using wine but it does not run for some reason.
Also my brother is using the same version of Linux but the game is running perfectly on his device.
Is it a graphics issue? To be honest my brother's laptop is a bit older than mine but i don't think this is why i cant run the game.
Please if you know how can i fix this problem, tell me thanks! happy

How are you setting up ja2 on linux? I run ja2 7609 based on Ubuntu 20.04. Works OK.

Hard to say, since you do not in any way describe what happens when you try to run ja2.

When i try to run the game, it crashes instantly.
Is there a ja2 1.13 version for Linux?
i use the Linux Mint distro.
Thanks!

How did you install JA2? Do you have a purchased plain Jagged Alliance 2? The one I have is the Linux version with a CD. I started with copying the files from that under Wine, and then applied the 1.13. I do not remember exact details, except I had to fix file names where uppercase and lowercase prevented finding the files.

Try this forum, plenty of instructions. For example [url=http://thepit.ja-galaxy-forum.com/index.php?t=msg&th=14663&goto=211927&#msg_211927]forum post[/url]
