Post subject:  Starters orders 6 on linux

I’ve had starters orders 6 on both Mac and windows pcs but don’t have them pcs anymore!

I’m currently using my dads Hp which is run on Linux. Is there any way to be able to play this game on Linux?

I’ve downloaded wine and I managed to download and install the game but it hasn’t ever started and always crashes on loading up.

Has anyone got any suggestions?


Thanks

What version of wine are you using?

I have just installed SO6 on a 12 year old linux pc using wine v3.3 and nearly everything seems to be working ok. Only problem I have found so far is the mini racecard only shows 2 runners for every race though the correct number of horses appear on the betting board and on the detailed racecard. Race sequence also works fine with correct number of horses although frame rate can be very erratic on such an old system. Jockey mode also works fine as well.

Only 2 runners instead of 9 appear on the mini racecard

Detailed racecard shows all 9 horses

All 9 horses take part in the race.

Ahh good so it is possible

I’ve just searched my phone pc and it says my wine is version 1.6.2 so it sounds like it’s vwry old ok going to try update it just not really sure how I do it as I’m not familiar with this Linux stuff.

Managed to update my wine and the game is working perfect.

Thanks for asking what version because i didn’t even know it was out of date!
