Unable to install mission under Wine

Recommended Posts

I'm running the Steam version of Doom3 under Wine (see elsewhere for my efforts with the native Doom3), and I'm encountering an unfortunate interaction with the restart required to "install" a mission and Wine.

  1. I start darkmod in the approved way, the menu screen comes up and tells me I have no missions installed.
  2. I select to install the training mission
  3. The game tells me "mission installed" and then restarts
  4. Darkmod exits
  5. Steam reports Error: This game is currently unavailable (Application running).
  6. When I restart darkmod, it tells me again I have no missions installed.

What's going on here? Point (5) is presumably a subtle Wine error, but why isn't darkmod able to go ahead and load the mission anyway when I restart at point (6)? Is there any workaround?


For what it's worth, Doom3 plays *perfectly* (apart from being a rather crap game, IMHO) under Wine.


Edit: http://forums.thedar...ing-with-steam/ seems to be a similar problem, *without* wine! Only, I'm *not* getting the mission installed when I restart :(


Edit: Aha: the trick is to ignore the advice in the wiki which says to run

steam -applaunch 9050 +set fs_game_base darkmod

and instead to run
