Empire Earth: Gold (GOG Version) not launch

wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 00000000 at address 00E96FE8 (thread 0024), starting debugger…

This appear in show log dialog.

I try to install dmusic and it was installed. Soon I realized I had 64 bit wineprefix, so version of dmusic maybe do not be compatible with Empire Earth. The game worked anyway, but stop working…

I reinstall, but firstly copy save data.

Save data is in:
${WINEPREFIX}/drive_c/GOG\ Games/Empire\ Earth\ Gold\ Edition/Empire\ Earth/Data/Saved\ Games/
${WINEPREFIX}/drive_c/GOG\ Games/Empire\ Earth\ Gold\ Edition/Empire\ Earth/Users/

I can load games after backup and restoring these directories.

I installed from Empire Earth Gold Edition - Lutris

Use wine “lutris-fshack-6.14-2-x86_64”. And the wine library configuration:


Thanks, but I wrote post with information I handle problem. I do not remember I reinstall by lutris script or by my own, but it works great. One problem is audio - there are some noises during game start.

From the wine config, in the libraries tab, see if you have the “dsound” library overwritten, and remove it.

If it doesn’t fix the noise problem, you can try:

  • From the lutris config, try to disable “DXVK/VKD3D”.
  • If not, from the wine config, try changing to windows xp or windows 10.

Issue was repaired after changing dsound from external into internal/builtin.
