    Important: It is very important to disable window manager controlling the windows. Otherwise the game will not load the levels.

    PlayOnLinux Shortcut

    Back to PlayOnLinux Configure
    Select "gobletoffire"
    Click General Tab
    Click "Make a new shortcut from this virtual drive"
    harrypottergof22.png

    Select "GofControls.exe"
    Click Next
    harrypottergof23.png

    Name the shortcut: Harry Potter Config
    Click Next
    harrypottergof26.png

    Select "gof_f.exe"
    Click Next
    harrypottergof24.png

    Name the shortcut: Harry Potter GoF
    Click Next
    harrypottergof25.png

    Click Next
    harrypottergof27.png

    Display Tab
    Video memory size: Enter the amount of memory your video card/chip uses
    harrypottergof28.png

    Close Configure

    Configure Controls
    Run "Harry Potter Configure"
    Select a controller
    Enter the buttons for each controller
    Click Quit
    harrypottergof29.png

    Note: My configure initially had 4 controllers, two (Event) and (js) for each controller. I didn't know which ones to configure for the game, so I went into System Settings and removed two of them.

    Launching Harry Potter Goblet of Fire

    Select "Harry Potter GoF"
    Click Run
    harrypottergof30.png

    Note: Click debug to see errors and bugs

    Click New Game
    Click Save slot
    Select characters with controllers and keyboard
    Play
    harrypottergof31.png

    Conclusion:
    Harry Potter Goblet of Fire ran perfectly in 800x600 resolution with the Virtual Desktop enabled. Initially the first level would not load due to the window manager, but we fixed that in Wine Configuration. I was able to play fullscreen even on my widescreen monitor. Both controllers worked fine after some configuration and I played on the keyboard. There are no widescreen patches or fixes for this game.
