I got the TCP/IP Connection working by installing DirectPlay through winetricks as said here

sadly, it didn't work. The game crashes always when I host on GR, and gives a black screen when someone else hosts
This is the terminal output when launching GameRanger from terminal "wine Gameranger.exe"

Wine 1.9.8 tested. Works pretty much like 1.9.1. DirectDraw HAL works, software rendering does not. Videos do not work but do not cause problems either.


Wiki page updated according to the information posted to this thread:

Thanks for remembering that page on the Wiki for UA/Linux

I added links to the official bugs/known issues page on bugtracker.

Some video problems with Wine 1.9.15.

If certain GStreamer codecs/plugins are not installed, UA may crash when it attempts to load a video. This does not seem to happen with the intro video.

Installing these plugins resolves the issue, but MPEG-1 videos are still not supported.

Converted videos work (see some older posts) but attempting to skip them using esc causes crash.

I am guessing you are not on a Ubuntu based OS. The latest I can see is 1.8.

Yeah, those tests were done on OpenSuse. Wine was installed from the additional Wine repository which provides newer versions.

I just gave up and installed windows 7 with ubuntu 16.04, but I'm not happy with ubuntu :(
I'm looking for a good KDE ubuntu based distro, and I'm not going for KDE Neon soon. Not until it's out their for a while and well tested
