I have been trying to catch up with some of the old games from way back that are about right for my little Aspire One netbook through Wine.
I've run into a problem Baldurs Gate, however, which is that I can't change CD.
Obviously, I don't have a CD drive, so I have copied the CD content onto an external hard drive and I'm using a
mount command with the loopback option to persuade the game that the CD is present. This allowed installation to work correctly and works fine to run it and to play the content from the first CD. However, when the game asks for CD2, I'm stuck.
If I mount the CD2 ISO to the CD Rom path it doesn't appear to respond, whether or not I have first unmounted CD1. When I ask Wine to show me the CD drive it contains the right data, but it seems as though whatever signal would be interpreted by Windows to mean the CD drive has been closed isn't being sent.
Does anyone know of a way to do this, or am I barking up the wrong tree and there is something else I need to do?
