Here is something I put together for you guys,
and well for myself to look back on, about tree years ago.
Here is the actual location of what you see here
First let’s make sure you do have either a
dual boot machine, or and hard drive with
your install of each game , on it.
I of course am doing this from my windows
partition, but do not doubt using usb type
portable thumbs,which is kinda cool.
I will work this week with grand theft
auto vice city .
Ok, Let’s go get some Wine .
you are going to need it.
Screen shot of install of wine This is
scrolling by like about 90 letters a second
Next you might need what I needed Flex ,
I use RPM Bone because I am not going
to spend a day trying to learn how to
build a package when I can
just do a search. Well whatever. If you
get a notice that you need to install
anything, the bone will help you, just
select the right distro and you are
good to get.. another File i needed
was BISON.. two seconds three tries
the rpm went well.
Open a console window and type:
apt-get install bison flex libncurses5-dev
Now when you begin the wine install
with this command ” ./tools/wineinstall ”
go get a soda or beer or what ever,
you might wanna grab a
couple, this sucker takes a while, but
look up from time to time it asks a yes
or no and asks you to type in admin pass.
* You now need the no cd
crack, I can not legally
* point you to it but be sure to get the
* one that is 15 mb or so, and scan it
When you navigate to the
location, which for me is
Rockstar Games/Grand Theft
Auto Vice City where I have
installed, the command
is “wine gta-vc.exe”or “gta_sa.exe” (which ever game you are working on) and
your screen will go all
win 95 looking in the
crummy resolution sense.
It will take a few
minutes, you might
want to hit the enter
button to get it to start,
it’s a tad freaky.
When game starts, look at
the cars and think about vice
city stories and liberty city
stories and how amazed you where
about the glossy cars…
Do you now see how cheap it was
when they did it? Screen Shot LOL..
cool ehh ?
Will update later when I get done
transferring the audio files from
cd to install directory.. not all
audio is working for me just yet.
* Ok you might get an error like this one
err:wave:DSDB_MapBuffer Please run winecfg, open “Audio” page and set
“Hardware Acceleration” to “Emulation”.
which tells you that you are not getting car motor sounds and peds sounds… well.
If you do that you will get those sounds back.. but at a cost… no radio and when you exit game.. dear god it’s a loud noise
