Cedega issues and workarounds

Without following workarounds game will hang in menus or directly before actual gameplay.

To get it working:
1. SoftMirrorBlt=1 must be set in icewind.ini.
2. Graphics depth must be set to 16bit using Icewind Dale configuration tool or BitsPerPixel=16 option in icewind dale.ini. Note: Running X server in 16bit color depth is not required but recommended. Gameplay is mutch smoother.
Game is fully completable and issuses mentioned in wine notes, don't apply to cedega.

Wine Issues

  • Installation and patch should work without issues in all versions. (Untested in some versions, though.)
  • All working versions:
    • Crashes when facing the final boss (An assertation failed in ChVideo.cpp at line number 7689).
    • Might crash when inspecting unidentified magical ammo. (Workaround: ID using shops)
    • Poor performance when attacking large enemies. (Toleratable, but annoying.)
    • Might crash when multiple spell effects are on screen. (Workaround: disable the appropriate sound channel.)
  • 20050211: Works, but importing a character crashes the game. .
  • 20050419: Works, with no major issues. Crashes when facing the final boss (same error).
  • 20050628: Freezes when starting a new game. (After choosing characters.) Works when loading characters.
  • 20050725 and later: Crashes when starting the game. (Before reaching the main menu.)
