Getting DTF working under Wine is fairly easy. To do so do the following:
- Download & Install Wine version 1.1.32 (It crashes out under the latest version which is 1.1.35 as of my posting this, you may want to consider installing 1.1.32 along side the latest version instead of replacing it)
- Download & Install DTF using Wine - Note when it tries to install DirectX it may fail, this is fine just click finish.
- Download Wine Tricks
Now open your favorite terminal and navigate to the directory you saved the winetricks file to and run sh winetricks d3dx9 vcrun2008 xact dinput directplay at this point you will see lots of scrolling text as Wine Tricks works its magic, eventually it will prompt you to install VC2008 - install it.
You should be all set to play - just load up the game.exe using Wine (version 1.1.32) and the DTF should load right up for you. I hope you all enjoy this lovely title as much as I did.
