I'm trying to play Europa 1400 Gold in wine (1.1.33) on an ubuntu (9.10)
platform. When I run the game executable
I get a popup message with Securom complaining that it thinks its an
emulator. I did some googling this morning and
saw many similar issues, with notes that Securom seems to be hit or
miss. E.g it works in some games, not in others.
I did find a patch for a much older version of wine 0.94 days that got
some versions of Secureom working by adding
some extra padding to the tagSUBHEAP structure in ./dlls/ntdll/heap.c, I
tried some similar things for about an hour but
have had no luck. Admittedly I have not looked at it too closely, but
if anybody on the list can provide some pointers
to debugging it I would be happy to spend the time.
I have also seen that the version of Securom seems to matter a good deal
(obviously), I am not sure how to find
its version information however or I would have included it.
Oh last important thing I have the real CD, not an ISO or a copy or an
image with daemon tools. I suppose
daemon tools would be easier, but it would be really nice to see it
