Works for me. Geforce 8600GS, nvidia 180 drivers, wine 1.1.30, Ubuntu 9.10 (testing)
I run Ubuntu x64 9.04, and ATI 4850 with proprietary drivers and Wine 1.1.31. I installed dotnet20 as adviced but skipped directx 9 as this was installed weeks ago for a different game. Installation and patching to 1.2 was successfull, but I can't play anyway because of a graphic problem. The main window showing the menu is mostly black with a smal part showing a button. This small area changes as I move around the mouse, but needless to say that I can't go on since I can't hit any button. Does anyone else had this problem?

I have a strange error with the 1.3 beta of hoi3 at launch:
fixme:actctx: parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.VC80.CRT" (8.0.50727.762)
My backup directory of hoi3 in 1.2 is still working. I think this dll is from Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable witch is installed.
Can someone help me ?
For a quick fix look for the file mentionned (Microsoft.VC80.CRT) and copy it in the games directory.
1) My disc mounted location was not present in winecfg -> Drives tab. I added it (Add -> any drive letter -> type the location where your disc or image is mounted, for me it was /media/hoi3).
2) On graphics tab of winecfg i checked the 'Emulate virtual desktop' option.
I'm pretty much sure that it was the 1) that fixed this problem but who knows.
The game seems to be running perfectly, following this guide. Except that the music doesn't play. Any suggestions on how to get it working?
Does any of that help?
Solved it! It turns out that not only is the launcher apparently fully functional, the music also plays when I run the game with the launcher.
Hi people! Im too having the problems of kaspar42 but even playing be the launcher the music not run. I using Debian Squeeze (But i only have two weeks on Linux world myself ), Wine 1.1.32, Hda Intel. At the start i got this message:
fixme:dsalsa:IDsDriverBufferImpl_SetVolumePan (0x159d18,0x15c718): stub
I think this have something related to problem. But i don't have idea what i can do to fix it, and i think maybe is this version of wine because i needed to install libmpg123 to support mp3 on wine.
TANKS!!! < for help and sorry for my english.
I think Debian requires you to install codecs from third-party repositories to allow playback of non-Free formats (such as mp3, which is what HOI3 uses).
Well, I have tested HOI 3 (Steam) with Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic, Wine 1.1.31 and Patch 1.3 and all works find, in fact I play in windowed mode and goes really smoothly. Probably the only "problem" is that if I Alt-TAB the game wont return, however it wont crash, only way to close is "kill -9".
Yes, i love WINE, what else?
Well there are wine and wine bottler for Mac OS.
Here is the link for prebuilt binary:
I think it is possible to run hoi3 under it.
Can someone figure out how?
