Nifflas contracted me to write a few extensions for Knytt Stories/Saira - BinaryArray.mfx was one of them. When I compiled it, I linked dynamically to the MSVC6 runtime instead of statically, so that's why it requires the DLL.

You could try reporting it to the WINE developers, as it must be a bug in the WINE implementation of D3D via OpenGL. Maybe there's an edge build of WINE you can try?

Nope. I have latest dev version of wine with appropriate pack files and such. I'l try making a report about it.

I feel terrible about bumping this, but has anyone made any progress with this?  I would really like to be able to play this game.

No, it isn't, and there is no possible way that it could be, ever.

(psst try looking at the website links)

I thought I recognised your username from somewhere! I'm the one who founded J2NSM (if you've heard of it) and I also wrote the Forest server tool, Hotel Manager and possibly some other random crap. I haven't been active since about 2006 though :P Jam CC! (but RR and AW before that)

Bumping an old thread here, as I'm having slightly different results trying to run Saira, FiNCK and nightsky (demos) in WINE on Mac OSX.

Before I ran the games, I downloaded and installed Microsoft Visual C++ and now the games 'run'. however, there is no picture, just a blank white window. I can hear the sounds and music, and I can 'play' the game, in that when I press the jump button and arrow keys, I hear the corresponding sound effects from the game.

Is there any way I can get the visuals working as well? If so, then I will probably buy one or two of these games :)
