Setting up Wine for Transcendence on Linux

Post by Ferdinand » Sun Feb 26, 2017 3:41 pm

So you have installed Linux and wonder if you can still play your favourite game?
Yes you can, Transcendence works great on Wine, but you'll need to configure it right.

First, best support for graphics is in the latest development Wine versions. As I am writing, this is Wine 2.2 but latest stable should also work fine. Instructions on how to download and install for your system can be found here: https://www.winehq.org/download

If you have used Wine before and your version was <= 1.9 please make sure to remove all Wine configuration before installing the new version.

After installation of Wine, download and unzip Transcendence to a directory on your computer

Open a terminal and from there run winecfg

Make sure default Windows version is set to Windows 7
There are problems running Transcendence with winegstreamer, we need to disable that, go to the Libraries tab, select winegstreamer in the New override for library box and click the Edit... button

select Disable and click OK

You have now disabled Winegstreamer. Click OK to save your configuration.
You can now start Transcendence, This will startup with Wine. If it is your first start, Wine will ask to load Mono. You don't need it for Transcendence.
After that it will ask to load WineGecko. You do need that if you want to connect to the multiverse!
After WineGecko has been loaded and installed, Transcendence will start and you can enjoy your favourite game on Linux!
