Running Knytt Stories on Wine (Linux)
« on: September 24, 2010, 12:34:02 »
I'm trying to run Knytt Stories on my Linux Laptop (Dell Inspiron E1705) on Fedora 13.

I receive the error:

"Cannot load DirectoryPacker.mfx. This object might need an external program or library not yet installed."

Since I use MMF, the extension .mfx means a MMF extension.

I was wondering how everyone else running Linux got KS to work.

I am trying to do this with the zip version of KS.

Thanks!

Ah, i had the same probable, it seems everyone with WINE does. It actually means you need to get a fixed .dll for your fake programs folder, but i forget which one sorry
I'm not dead. Not entirely. And yes, I'm embarrassed by most of the posts I made here.

Its msvcp60.dll, place it in wines system32 folder. I had the same problem.

Thanks Whistler, got it going. I knew it had to be put in system32, just couldn't figure out what it was.  X-P

Hey no problem. But you might want to know newer games like Saira and Finck won't run at all.

Nah that's fine with me. The only one I really wanted to play was KS, I can save FiNCK and Saira for my desktop. :P

Saira and FiNCK run for me, albeit with some graphical problems, which happen to render Saira just a tad bit unplayable (FiNCK is perfectly playable, though).

I can't recall if I even did anything special for it.  What problems are you having?

FiNCK should work with the same DLL.  The editor, on the other hand...

It gave me a black screen but I had sound. Like the Saira issues. It may because I am using an older version of Ubuntu. (well, not Ubuntu, but my distro is based on Ubuntu 9.04.)

For FiNCK I have the same issue as Whistler, but I have a white screen. And I'm on a Mac.
