  • Installer will not even start, giving a blank screen in both Cedega and WINE. To install:
    • Create a directory someplace, and copy Desperados.exe, game.inf, Extras, and Game to that directory.
    • Go into the Game directory, and extract the files in Game.pac to the Game directory. (Note: all .pac files are renamed zips; ark and File Roller both read them without problems.) After doing this, Game/game.exe should exist.
    • Go into the Data directory, and do the same to the five .pac files in that directory. After doing this, the directory Game/Data/Animations should exist, and contain 57 files.
    • At this point, the .pac files are unneeded, though you may want to keep them around for a bit, just in case you forgot to process one.


  • The game does not work in Cedega; it crashes a second after startup.
  • In WINE, the game almost works. Problems:
    • The mouse cannot be moved. Although it is possible to navigate the menus with the keyboard, the game requires the use of a mouse, and so is made unplayable.
    • Some items have a green box around them. This is visible on the train in the first level.
    • The sound skips and stutters badly.
    • Other than that, the game appears to work. If the mouse issue is fixed, the game will likely become playable.


  • In both Cedega and WINE, the patch cannot find the installation.
  • By adjusting the relevant system.reg file to include:
[Software\\Spellbound Software\\Desperados 1.0] 1132853380
"InstallPath"="C:\\Program Files\\Infogrames\\Desperados"

[Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Uninstall\\Desperados 1.0] 1132853380
"DisplayName"="Desperados 1.0"
"UninstallString"="\"C:\\Program Files\\Infogrames\\Desperados\\Desperados.exe\" -uninstall"

the error message changes to believing the installation is corrupt.

  • Oddly enough, the corrupt installation error occurs on Windows as well.
