Hello,

I followed instructions to install XWA+XWAUCP 1.6 on linux given there : viewtopic.php?f=9&t=12132#p158141

Next I wanted to try the multiplayer mode. I did this to activate XWA network capabilities:

Code: Select all

sudo cp /opt/wine-stable/lib/libwine* /usr/lib
sudo setcap cap_net_raw+epi "$(readlink -f "/usr/bin/wine-preloader")"
I tested with:

Code: Select all

wine ping 8.8.8.8
Install Directplay via Winetricks

Between 2 computers on my home network we played skirmish missions.

Have fun. ;)
