    Fable: The Lost Chapters, is a Hero Adventure with all the nuts-n-bolts of an action RPG game. Melee weapons, ranged weapons and magical attacks are all part of your arsenal as you fight bandits, mages, animals, monsters and bosses. There is also customization of your characters appearance.

    Naturally I wanted to see if it runs on Linux in the PlayOnLinux environment.
    Follow this step-by-step guide to learn how to configure, install and optimize your game with PlayOnLinux.

    To learn more about PlayOnLinux and Wine configuration, see the online manual:
    PlayOnLinux Explained

    Mint 14 32-bit
    PlayOnLinux: 4.1.9
    Wine: 1.4

    Copying CD files

    Create a new folder on your desktop
    Name it: Fable

    Enter your Fable Disk 1

    Select all the files on Fable Disk 1
    Copy to your new Fable folder
    fable01a.png

    Note: My CD ROM always errored with the 00002.tmp file, so I would skip it and everything else would copy fine. I had to search online for this .tpm file and downloaded it.

    Files copying
    fable02a.png

    Enter Fable Disk 2

    Select these files only:
    • Fable - The Lost Chapters
    • Disk2C-1.cab
    Copy and paste to your new Fable folder
    fable03a.png

    Note: Linux will ask to merge "Fable - The Lost Chapters" because it has a duplicate data folder with audio and videos.

    Select "Merge"

    Continue with Fable Disk 3 and Disk 4.
    Disk 3 will also have a "Fable - The Lost Chapters" folder and a "Disk3C-1.cab" file
    Disk 4 only has "Disk4C-1.cab" file

    Finished state of your new Fable folder

    I was able to adjust all video options to my desire.
    Widescreen ratios worked great and I cranked all of the texture, anti-aliasing, mesh and shadows

    Click Apply

    Note: I noticed some flickering in the shadows during gameplay. It seems turning down shadow detail may fix it.

    I used the official install script in PlayOnLinux. The game starts and says that it can't play the opening intro and to please check my hardware. I forgot the error code 800 something.
  3. booman
    Did the script install wmp9? I'm pretty sure the opening splash logos and movie are only supported by Windows Media Player 9, but can't verify that.
    I think you can rename the video folder and then it will skip the intros.
  4. steve723
    It installed wm9 but it doesn’t work. I am guessing its like Civilization 5 inn which the opening video's don't play but the rest of the game works and you can play Civ 5's videos manually from the directory’s. I looked through your guide and found there was some display settings that the script didn't use. Microsoft probably updated the game since the script was made. The game seems to be running now except for the video error at the very beginning. I notice the script set the memory in wine higher than your guide says but that may be the script seeing my card and seeing I have more memory than you do.
  5. steve723
    I just tried changing the default profile and wine crashed! I had to restart and clipper failed to record the wine crash report. I had selected all the text of the wine crash and selected copy. After reboot it wasn't in the clipper history so all I can say is that wine crashed. I know its vague but there is no back trace to report.

    O good my POL log file has it:

    :rolleyes: I turned off the Steam Overlay. The game is now playing except the opening video and that's no big deal.
  8. booman
    Ugh, that overlay! :mad:
    I hope Wine developers can eventually get it to work. Some games require it to play multiplayer or cooperative.
    I remember having problems with the intro video. Its probably better to skip it anyways.
  9. steve723
    I'll just ignore the error message and continue playing. I figure just leave it as is since its not affecting anything. Some day when I try a newer wine version it might start working but until then it doesn’t hurt anything. Maybe the wine devs will fix it some day but if not then no biggie.
  10. steve723
    I wonder If the wine devs ever look on this forum for clues as to what needs fixing or improvement. * They are probably to arrogant to look anywhere but www.winehq.com .
  11. booman
    who knows... but I found more success using PlayOnLinux alone than using Wine by its-self.
    Whenever I try a new game, I always go to WineHQ's first, then google search, then start trial-n-error as you have been doing.
    My list of failed games is pretty small.
    I tried Fate this morning and it refuses to launch the WildTangent client.
  12. steve723
    I haven’t played my wild Tangent games since I decided to ban Windblow$ from my hard drive.
  13. booman
    Really? what games do you have?
    I have also experience problems with the BigFish client too.
    Wine is just not "client" friendly with all of these IE8 compatible clients.
  14. steve723
    I will try to remember. Sins of a Solar Empire 1 all expansions. Galactic Civilizations 1 (I have every Galactic Civ game and all expansions and DLC for I and II on Steam. I haven't bought III yet but it just came out last month.)

    I can't remember the rest right now as its been to long. I will long in later on the web site and get the list.

    BTW: El Presidente has decreed that Tropico 5 will be out on May 25th! I have it pre ordered on Steam and am looking foward to the Linux version that will be out later. I already have version 4 for win Steam.
  15. steve723
    I noticed that Steam is an epic fail with UGI game launcher - Anno 2070 - .
  16. booman
    Wow, I didn't know all of those games were available through the Wild Tangent client
  17. BluPenDragon
    While this is a great walk through, i find its best to also create the short cut to WMP9 (windows media player) and run that once, BEFORE you run Fable, as some stuff isnt setup in WMP until it is ran once (like the handling of the video files
