Two issues with HL-CS.
First, my system specs:
XFree 4.2.0 stock Redhat one - January 23. 4.2.0-8
Redhat 7.3 - WineX(and Wine 20020228)
Matrox G400 card.
All my OpenGL stuff works(ie. HL in single player mode, with the nice voice
over narration et al.)
So first issue: On startup, halflife complains that
Could not open MCI file for playback: 266: There is an undetectable problem in
loading the specified device driver.
The following line comes up if I run from console:
err:midi:OSS_MidiInit ioctl on midi info for device 0 failed.
Then I click ok twice, and it works. The sound effects work. I don't remember
any musing in half life. While installing, the blowhorn sound effect played
Issue two: This is the major one.
I can get half-life to run normally under single player mode. CS doesn't work
at all though. The menus come up, I can choose the map and all that, but then
it just hangs. It gives the following error if I run wine from the command
fixme:x11drv:SendGrabMessage grab window to big. can't grab to portion
Things I've tried:
Redhat Wine 20020228
- These two came up with the same error as above. I'm now using WineX
Wine CVS(last night 20021009)
Half life crashed. :(
I did the install using ./tools/wineinstall.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
