Problems with Wine

Asked by Weboh on 2012-12-21

I am trying to run Bloons TD5 Deluxe on Wine. It starts up and everything just fine, but when I type in my verification key, it gives me the message: "Cannot access servers for verification. I know I am connected to the Internet; and the verification works just fine on my actual Windows, so I am assuming it's Wine's fault.

Also, I can't find out how to shrink the screen size of the Wine loader below maximize, or how to minimize it or anything.

I am running Ubuntu 12.10

Did you check the appdb for compatibility? The app WILL work in Windows as that is the OS it is made for, so saying it works in Windows doesn't add any value to the question

Weboh (webohjy) said : #2

It's not in the appdb. Is there a way I can request it be added?

You can test it etc, then add it yourself. The wiki is community driven like most of Linux. Basically you are in uncharted terrirtory. You may need to run:

winecfg

And change the system setup to Windows XP, or Windows Vista and so forth, see what you can find out.

Can you help with this problem?
