Hey guys, so I have a problem I got the trespasser CE patch and everything changed the config file the game launches fine on it's own without the CE patch but the CE patch launch won't launch the game it just gets stuck with a blank window the opening sequence does not play and I have to force it closed from my task manager it just won't launch

Please guys I can't explain how important it is for me to play this game any help would be appreciated

It is also a fresh install of windows 10 running on a VM on KVM that should not have anything to do with it but I can imagine something is not installed I am running linux so I can't run the game natively

EDIT:It has something to do with direct x user runtime's I installed the runtime's but the game still will not launch

2ND EDIT: I copied the d3dx9_43.dll into the game directory and checked it in my SYSWOW64 folder and it is there but the game still tells me that it is missing if anyone can help me with this it would be appreciated

Last time I tried running Trespasser in a Windows VM, it didn't run. That was a long time ago though.

Which distro of Linux are you running? Some distros have better gaming support like POP!_OS. You might be able to run Trespasser in Linux using Proton.

Welcome to the site! :)

I'm largely unfamiliar with VMs and Linux in general, but I had a friend try to get it working and it seemed that it was just "one of those games" as she couldn't get it working either. I believe this was also on Wine. CE can sometimes be finnicky with the settings so it might be some function in trespasser.ini set incorrectly.

I just setup Trespasser on my Manjaro Linux machine and it runs impressively well with just standard WINE, no Proton.
Here is what I did:
-If you haven't already, install WINE, either from the add-remove software tool or using the "sudo apt install wine64" command line.
-Download and unzip the official Trespasser demo. (I unzipped it on the desktop.) https://www.trescom.org/download/offici ... sser-demo/
-Download and unzip Trespasser CE into the demo folder. (Don't forget the D3DX9_43.DLL.) https://www.trescom.org/download/trespasser-ce-patch/
-Copy the contentents of the data folder on the Trespasser CD to the demo's data folder, overwrite.
-Run tpassp6.exe with WINE and go through the first time setup.
-Enjoy!

Thanks! I will try this out soon and update if it works

UPDATE:THE GAME FINALLY RUNS ON WINE THANK YOU NICK! now ATX won't boot which is frustrating I prefer it for the jumping dinosaurs but that is beside the point thank you nick

Welcome ItsEmpty to Jurassic Trespasser. :statue:

Glad you got assistance. Sorry to hear ATX doesn't work for you now! Those jumping raptors are nice to see. If you can't figure it out, there are some cool alt-jumping raptors in Tatu's "Isla Sorna" mod, where he's upgraded and combined versions of the first 2 and a half levels into one.
