Warcraft II under linux

Post by Dani » Tue, 06 Apr 1999 04:00:00



Linux is the OS of choice on my network but I must still keep
a small partition (~80MB) in which to install a min copy of WIN95
so that we can run Warcraft II in the evenings.  

Is it possible to run WCII under WINE or another of the DOS
sessions?

I'd like to hear from anyone who has run WCII under linux.

(Otherwise, anyone know of great multi-player games under X?)

I believe that the WINE home page has a master appz compatability list.

It doesn't list Warcraft as one of the games currently tested.
Although I've read the page on running Starcraft and I'm
not very hopefull as Warcraft often not very stable on it's
own native plateform.

Oh well, it looks like the tiny FAT partisions have to stay.

I think that Warcraft is a DOS-based game, isn't it?  If so, then
you'd have to run it under dosemu rather than wine.  But dosemu
still doesn't support the FM chip in sound, so I doubt if it
would run completely.  Still, you could try running it with
sound turned off if that's possible (and if you can stand it).

They have on my machine.
