View Full Version : Wipeout XL in Wine

1st May 2015, 06:44 AM
I run OSX on a Mac, so I use Wine to play some older games. I have had little success getting Wipeout XL running in Wine. I have the original CD. Apparently, this bug (https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11995) is the reason why. The other issue is slowdown. I was able to find a patched version of the executable that slows the game down to play it like it should, but it is also a NOCD patch. That executable actually works fine in Wine, and the game plays well, accept the intro movie doesn't play (I like the intro movie) and the CD audio will not work when the CD is inserted and mapped in winecfg. Has anyone been able to get Wipeout XL/2097 working in Wine with a working intro movie and CD audio in Wine, running at the right framerate?

You should try VirtualBox as they do use the WineD3D code to emulate Direct3D.
