Cedega 6.0 Notes

  • Installation works perfectly. Thought, you need a nocd fixed exe to run game.
  • Z-fighting bug is gone! (flickering floors)
  • All details can be turned on. (requires Geforce FX or better GPU with ps 2.0 turned on)
  • Overall performance on a tested P4 2.4Ghz, GF7600GS, was very good.
  • Crashes on exit.

Issues with the German Demo

  • Installed fine with some minor graphical glitches, although all the German Umlaute in the EULA were garbled.
  • The intro movies had stuttering sound (enabling Decrease Wine server priority helps a bit) and only showed a white screen.
  • The mouse pointer did not exactly point where the arrow was pointing, e.g. you might miss-click buttons. I had to aim a bit lower to actually hit them.
  • Many of the higher detailed graphical settings were not available - unsure whether this is a demo issues.
  • The demo crashes in the intro move accross the 3D landscape in both maps.
  • With Cedega v4.1, the demo crashes at the end. v4.1.1 fixes this.

Issues with the v1.04 Demo

  • The installer garbles some characters in the EULA and has some other minor graphical corruptions.
  • The mouse pointer did not exactly point where the arrow was pointing, e.g. you might miss-click buttons. You may have to aim a bit lower to actually hit them.
  • The demo crashes upon quitting a long play session.
  • The building floors flicker (z-fighting) with the ground textures

Otherwise the demo did run nice and stable for a few hours on 1600x1200.

Issues with the game

I couldn't get the game to work without a no-cd patch but for that I had to patch the game to 1.03. However, the patch refused to install because it couldn't find install information so I added to following to the system.reg:

[Software\\Blue Byte\\The Settlers - Heritage of Kings]
"InstallPath"="C:\\Program Files\\Ubisoft\\Blue Byte\\THE SETTLERS - Heritage of Kings"
"InstallSMProgram"="C:\\Documents and Settings\\All Users\\Start Menu\\Programs\\Ubisoft\\Blue Byte\\THE SETTLERS - Heritage of Kings"
"Version"="163"
[Software\\Blue Byte\\The Settlers - Heritage of Kings\\1.00.0000]

Now, the patch will run and update the game to version 1.03. It worked if "Version" is updated to "190".

Other issues: the intro is choppy, just as the briefings.
