Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Star Wars: The Force Unleashed – Ultimate Sith Edition Wine Linux – how to run this game on Linux.
You can play Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on Linux with some minor tweaking. For this game you’ll need only Wine, DirectX 9, a virtual desktop, and resolution setting in a config file. Let’s start.
The game itself runs fine but the luncher doesn’t work. This, however, isn’t a big problem. When you install the game, run it once and it’ll probably freeze, crash or will stutter like hell. Close it and go to the following directory:
/prefix/drive_c/users/your_user/Local Settings/Application Data/Aspyr/Star Wars The Force Unleashed/
There you’ll find a file named Config.xml. Open it with a text editor and edit the lines 3 and 4 to choose your resolution. The two lines are:
<s id="VideoWidth">1024</s> <s id="VideoHeight">768</s>
Save the changes and close the file.
Now we have to set a virtual desktop. Issue the following command:
Go to the Graphics tab, choose „Emulate a virtual desktop“ setting and set the desired resolution.
The last step is DirectX 9 installation. For d3dx9 installation you have two choices:
- Install d3dx9 via winetricks:
- Install d3dx9 via Microsoft’s official installer:
You’ll have to download Microsoft’s official installer and run it with double click just like in Windows. Follow the installer’s steps.
All done! Now you can enjoy Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Star Wars: The Force Unleashed – Ultimate Sith Edition on Linux!
Keep in mind there’s no point using ESyng for the framerate is locked at 30 FPS.
- Wine version used in the video: Wine 4.9
