Guide: How to run Return to Castle Wolfenstein in eight easy steps
Posted 03 April 2008 - 05:56 PM
1- OK, this step is not that easy, you have to install your Windows version of the game either in another PC or in your EEE with wine.
2- Go to your installation directory, then into the "main" subdirectory and retrieve the mp_pak0.pk3, sp_pak1.pk3 and pak0.pk3 files, copy them to a SD Card or USB key. Have them handy. Once you get them, you can uninstall the game.
3- Head to ftp://ftp.idsoftware...uff/wolf/linux/ and download wolf-linux-1.41b.x86.run. This is the Linux installer.
4- Open a terminal, go to where you placed the installer and run 'sudo sh wolf-linux-1.41b.x86.run'. Follow the instructions. You can choose another directory for the installation, for instance somewhere in your SD card.
5A- Move the three files obtained in step 2 to the "main" subdirectory of the installation place. With default installation, that would be /usr/local/games/wolfenstein/main. Alternatively, follow step 5B...
5B- If you find you are low on disk space, you may do what I did. Create a wolf directory in your SD Card, move everything in the main subdirectory plus the three data files to it, and then remove the now empty "main" and create a link, such as: 'ln -s /mnt/SD/Wolf /usr/local/games/wolfenstein/main'. Note that any manipulation of external media requires superuser privileges, that is, do everything with 'sudo'
Chapter 2: Running Return to Castle Wolfenstein
1- In order to get sound, you should create a script to enable it as explained in http://forum.eeeuser...pic.php?id=9298. Follow the instructions included in the first post.
2- Run 'wolfsp' and there you go. You should set the system options to low performance.
3- Additionally, you can adjust the resolution as explained in the first post of http://forum.eeeuser...ic.php?id=13850. You should adjust the width and height to 800 and 480, naturally.
Without overclocking and a little tweaking, you should get the game to work at about 20fps.
- More specific performance options
- Multiplayer does not work. It complains about not finding libstdc++. It's probably a matter of installing the right package. I haven't tried it yet.
I hope you find it useful.

Your question is answered in the instructions.
It is because the game files need to be made available before the native Linux installer can be used.
