    Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb takes you on an action adventure with Indie through Aztec Dungeons, Jungles and epic ruins. Sneak past mercenaries or take them out with your whip, pistol, shotguns or even hand to hand. Each ruin presents challenging jump tricks and stealth kills to reach the exit.

    Very good old classic

    Good tips about resolutions, max vertex shader register entry and msvcrt

    Actually runs smoothly in many machines

    Good screens too

    :)

    Thanks!
    All my research was at WineHQ.org and the posts were correct. Without the registry edit, you get a lot of graphical artifacts. Without msvcrt, the game won't even launch at all.

    no direct on registry
  4. booman
    Did you install d3dx9 in the PlayOnLinux Packages step?
    You can always add it...
  5. booman
    Go ahead and try this:
    • Open Registry
    • Go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    • Go to: Software
    • Go to: Wine
    • Right-click the Wine folder
    • Select "New Key"
    • Name it: Direct3D
    • Select "Direct3D" folder
    • Right click and select "New"
    • Click "DWORD Value"
    • Name the DWORD: MaxShaderModelVS
    • Close Registry
    • Click "Windows Reboot"
    Now it should work... I hope
