Help with running sacred on wine from a chromebook

Recommended Posts

I know, it sounds uselessly complicated, but I'm gonna do it anyway and I need help.

I've come as far as being able to download sacred (From this link: https://archive.org/download/pc_20211221/Sacred gold.zip) for windows, placing it in my linux files, then change the directory from linux to wine and run the command: 

wine .wine/drive_c/Sacred\ gold/Sacred\ gold/Sacred.exe

now the game starts but instantly goes black screen and I get an erro that says:

the program sacred exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close

(crash report in the comments)


if instead I try to run the sacredreborn or sacredreborn config it doesn't even start and says
''error can't load SRglbl.res!''


if instead I try to run the config.exe (config of regular game) that .exe starts normally without errors.

so I don't think I've done something wrong in setting up wine, since I've managed to open something, and I also already checked on a normal PC (with windows) that this version of sacred works even better than steam's version 


any help on how could I make it run on wine, from linux, from a chromebook?

Just klicked at the link. Bad idea. Errm, usually the gog and steam versions are fitted for modern systems. For me, gog works best. Just wait until you get it for one, two bucks. Happens every two, three months.
