Hello fellow Linux gamers!

Here you’ll find scripts allowing you to build packages for Debian, Arch Linux and any derivative (Ubuntu, Manjaro, Linux Mint, etc.) from your GOG installers for Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom.
You will then be able to easily install these packages with you favourite packages manager.

Download links and usage instructions can be found on the following page:
Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom

I hope you’ll enjoy the ease-of-use provided by these scripts as much as I enjoy writing and tweaking them ;)

Here you go for more supported games!

Hi, I just bought a copy of the game but failed to installed it since the package provided is for i386 processor architecture and I have amd64 architecture. Is there any fix to this problem?

If you’re running a Debian-based distribution (like Ubuntu or Linux Mint), you need to run the two following commands as root to be able to install i386 packages:
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

Better handling of WINE dependency on Debian-based systems
Hi an thanks for your work.
I still have a problem concerning by 64bit system.

After package creation and installation when I execute the game the following error appears.

wine: WINEARCH set to win32 but '/home/XXXXX/.local/share/play.it/prefixes/emperor-rise-of-the-middle-kingdom' is a 64-bit installation.

I tried to execute dpkg --add-architecture i386 but it didn't seem to change anything.

Thanks if you have an idea :)

INFO: I am running wine 1.6.2

What is the distribution you’re using? Debian Jessie?

Can you post here the result of the following command?
dpkg -l *wine*|grep ^ii
It should give us the list of WINE packages installed on your system, with their architecture and version.

seems like everything that should be there is in both architectures

Everything seems good on your side, so I suspect we’re seeing some WINE bug here:
https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29661

I will publish an update to the ./play.it library later today to work around this bug.

-----

Done!

Please tell me if the new version of libplayit2.sh fix this bug.

After re-building the packages with the new library and installing them, you will need to delete the existing prefix before running the game again:
rm --recursive ~/.local/share/play.it/prefixes/emperor-rise-of-the-middle-kingdom

Thank you so much, now it worked, what I also had to do was uninstall the 2 emperor-rise-of-the-middle-kingdom_1.0.1.0-gog2.0.0.2+20170616.2_i386 packages, then when I run apt-get install again he deinstalled wine:64 and installed wine:i386

To be frank I didn't understand everything that happened but it works now :)
Thanks again for your help.
Update

Emperor will run in a WINE virtual desktop on first launch, avoiding messed up display on GPU drivers with poor compatibility for low 4:3 resolutions.
