    Hello all dis is my 1st post here !

    I just tried installing F2 on a linux box with mandrake 9.1 with WINE and evrythin works right exept... game savin.

    The first tiime i save a game it works, then it won't work again unless i reload the game i just saved... and sometimes i can't even save the first time.

    I've tried to find a solution in a lot of places and I'v got really desperate right now... save me from suicide, help me 2 play f2 without having to Load/Save evry 2 mins!!!

    Sorry for the late reply, but it's still better than never.

    I remember the same problem with older versions of Wine. Just look at the Wine version you're using - it's probably just a matter of upgrade. F2 runs here just fine, without a single problem, at Wine-20031212. If you won't find a RPM version, grab the source and build it - it's not that hard.

    Wohooo, got Fallouts running at top speed on my Suse machine! :D (well, occasionally th fade-in/out is laggy, but...)

    If you're experiencing problems with saving/loading , make yourself an executable script like

    cd /mnt/C/BlackIsle/Fallout2
    wine fallout2.exe
    Also, it's a good idea to use reltive paths in fallout2.cfg if you're running from a Windows partition.

    Make sure the Windows partition is writable...NTFS may be a problem.

    PS. Here's a nice icon to use with GNOME :)

    Hi, I'm running Ubuntu 9.10, and I got it installed, and then I immediately installed the Restoration Project. Both installed fine... but I try to run Fallout 2, and it starts, gets to the "please stand by", and then crashes to desktop. I'm running wine in 98 mode. Any suggestions?

    i think, you should try xp mode and RP requires directX, as i know
