[eng] BF2.5 under Linux

I installed the game yesterday, but I cannot get the game running. :(
I am using slackware 12.1 with kernel and wine 1.1.5.
That's the error message I get:
Code: Select all
A fatal Error occured during engine startup. Please refer to log.txt for further information.

And that's the console's output:
Code: Select all
qba@udn:~$ wine .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Broken\ Sword\ 2.5/bsengine.exe

As you can see, it's the same problem as in this topic, but, unfortunately, I cannot understand anything in German and Google Translator didn't do its job well.
I would much appreciate it if someone could help me.

try to start it from the game directory:
Code: Select all
:~$ cd .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Broken\ Sword\ 2.5/
:~$ wine bsengine.exe

or use a shortcut, wine created.
for example in the kde or gnome menu.

Thank you very much!
That solved the problem. :)
I've got one more question - are the German speeches (with English chosen as the game's language) a "feature" ;) or a bug due to playing the game under wine? :)

At the moment there is only german speech available,
but you can set english subtitles in the main menu.

So its not a bug and no feature (at the moment) :)
