Rollcage Redux, Wine 2.18, full debug log (WINEDEBUG=+all)

Rollcage Redux doesn't start because Wine is looking for
$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program
Files/Psygnosis/Rollcage/IDXData/{Rollcage.idx,Rollcage.img} files from the
user's home directory.

I debugged the issue quite some time. If either of those files are missing from
user's home directory ($HOME/), the game just freezes during startup. Manually
putting those files to $HOME "fixes" the issue.

I have been able to reproduce the issue with Wine 1.9.24, 2.3 and 2.18, all
compiled from source. Error output is exactly the same.

Because I haven't been able to produce this error earlier on my system and due
to wide range of Wine versions used, I suspect that possibly some system
library file on my system may have had recent changes which break compatibility
with multiple Wine versions.

----------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------

I am using Arch Linux 64-bit. I can provide /var/log/pacman.log information if
needed.

I used a clean 32-bit wineprefix for testing. I did separate testing with POL,
too.

Though I am aware POL is not supported here, I think it's still better to
supply the following information anyway.

----------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------

POL testing

I am able to start the game on PlayOnLinux in some cases using precompiled Wine
POL versions & "system" version. Here are some highlights from POL testing:

1)

The game starts if I use PlayOnLinux and "system" Wine version, in this case
2.18 (no staging). However, this is true only if I use Intel HD4000 GPU instead
of Nvidia GTX 760M. I have an optimus laptop. With Nvidia, the game freezes and
is unable to open the game window. With Intel, the game starts.

2)

The game starts with Intel and Nvidia, if I use PlayOnLinux and precompiled POL
Wine 2.18 binaries. However, removing precompiled library files from
$HOME/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/2.18/lib/ folder doesn't have any effect.
What I am trying to achieve is to force POL version of Wine to load system
libraries instead, narrowing down the issue as a result. However, I have been
unable to get satisfying outcome.

----------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------

The game is free and can be downloaded here:
http://www.codemonkey.me.uk/downloads/rollcageredux.exe

You need to extract that exe file with "/extract:" parameter because Wine can't
handle the Installshield wizard installation procedure correctly at the moment.

I have attached full debug log and short "log" files. No POL used for producing
these log files.

----------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------

Highlights from the full log (line 375 523 onwards):

143468.262:0008:0009:trace:file:wine_nt_to_unix_file_name

> Can anyone reproduce or confirm this bug?

Does it work if you run it from the executable directory? i.e.:

cd ~/.wine_rollcage/drive_c/Program Files/Psygnosis/Rollcage/Direct3D/
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_rollcage wine "Rollcage Redux.exe"

FWIW that works for me, except that I then get, after a couple of game logo
videos:

wine: Call from 0x7b43c78c to unimplemented function
msvcr120.dll.?_NewCollection@_AsyncTaskCollection@details@Concurrency@@SAPAV123@PAV_CancellationTokenState@23@@Z,
aborting

which is actually bug 42680, and thus a crash. Native msvc*120 is a workaround
but then the game stays black after the aforementioned videos and I see an
endless stream of:

0009:fixme:d3dx:d3dx9_effect_init Failed to parse effect, hr 0x80004005.

It turns out that D3DXCreateEffectFromFileW() is passed an "ASCII" effect and
it doesn't handle includes correctly. After fixing that the game goes in an
endless loop of calls to the stubbed FindNextValidTechnique() (bug 34101).
I have written a couple of patches for those d3dx9 bugs and with those the game
works for me when using native d3dcompiler_43.dll, although I still need to
write tests and the like. Native d3dx9_43.dll should be a workaround for those
d3dx9 shortcomings for the time being.

Can you confirm my findings? If so, I'd update this bug to track the
D3DXCreateEffectFromFileW() issue, given that there are already bugs for the
other issues.

I confirm this with wine-3.5.
Game works with native msvcr120, msvcp120 and d3dcompiler_43.
(No d3dx9 needed anymore after your patches)

Thank you, retargeting and resolving this bug then.
