Saira on WINE
« on: December 12, 2009, 19:34:13 »
I cannot get it to work.  The closest I could come was to put the game in windowed mode and emulate a virtual desktop, where about half the screen was completely cut off and thus the game was unplayable.

Anyone else tried?  Anyone else tried something that worked?

I just downloaded and it doesn't work for me either. I have windows XP. The entire window is pretty much black. I can hear the music. I was really eager to try it. The fact that the same dl can't be moved over to another PC means I can't try it on my laptop either.  :sad:

It can be moved, just get the portable .zip version or re-download it at the new computer.

I've had a little luck getting Saira to run in WINE.

It's not all happy times though.

If anyone know how to fix such a black thingie... please do tell.

I'll report back with any progress I make.

EDIT: maybe I should mention. Up to that point everything has run very nice, apart from the weird black area.
EDIT2: hmm... (EDIT3:) some fonts are messed up.
@Nifflas: what fonts are used in the game?  :huh:

EDIT4:
* The menu box opens just fine and other boxes also.
* Text in menu works fine.
* Photos doesn't show up. They're there, they're just all black.
* It's the small text, for instance where you mount the the parts in the teleporter. The text in that box is messed.
* When looking at the window and the black frame (see picture), the game-image is pushed down the height of the upper black bar and the right side is covered by the bar in that position.
* Puzzles appear to work fine. At least the two first ones do.

EDIT5:
Application crashed when I tried to run the Device Solver with a puzzle.

Fetched the newest WiNE package for ubuntu 9.10, downloaded the portable version of the game, ran terminal, navigated to the game, typed in "wine saira.exe" - ENTER!

Then it said: missing *****.dll (don't remember which one) and I googled and downloaded it and added the library to the emulated C:/

Then I ran again and... well.. you know the result.  ;)

Edit: i get "cannot load binaryarray.mfx. This object might..." etc
Did you somehow fix this while making another program work then forgot about it?

I can't have done that, no. I hadn't installed wine prior. Another thing I did however, which I forgot to mention: I copied all my .ttf fonts from my windows install to the font directory in the emulated c:/

I get this. Its so off center it's ridiculous.. I'm unsure what the problem could be.

@Smeagle; You need to download MSVCP60.dll and put it in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 to get rid of that error.

Hmm, same problem as I have, though more severe it seems.

If you could resize or compress your image a little more it would put less strain on the less fast connections.

what.. how it is your fault. o-o

@Lightningeagle; The thing is that yours and mine are the same, but I think our resolution makes yours work better because you cant even see the ground with how far mine is down. 1440x900
