[LINUX - TUTORIAL] AMIGA SWOS 96/97 & 16/17
« on: 11 March 2017, 14:03:36 »
Hi everybody! The easiest way to play SWOS in a linux distribution is to open it with WINE installed previously. It'll be as you usually do for any windows software. *
* You  could also install a virtual machine as Virtualbox, VMware, CrossOver (paid commercial product),
an use the virtual machine lika a windows pc, but they introduce some overhead and isn't as easy as WINE.
** There are other emulators, as PLAYONLINUX where you can play SWOS, but not the version and online possibilities you have in the software provided in sensiblesoccer.de!


1. Wine
1.1 You can install wine from your software centre:
     


1.2 Download from the website (most distributions avalaible) and install by console/terminal:
      Go to https://www.winehq.org/download, choose your linux distribution and follow the steps provided in the site.



   

2. AMIGA SWOS

2.1 AMIGA SWOS:   ORIGINAL 96/97 & UPDATE 16/17 VERSION

2.2 INSTALL IT WITH DOUBLE CLICK OR RIGHT CLICK:




3. START IT (DESKTOP ICON)

Of course. I installed via Wine and everything worked perfectly. However, ASWOS.exe always defaulted to 2016/17 when I opened, even if I chose 96/97 and closed the program.

This caused the "The rom 'Amiga SWOS 96/97' is not in your list" error when trying to play online, because I thought the default was 96/97.

I deleted from Wine and reinstalled. Haven't had the error since.
