I am trying to run Broken Sword 4 in wine on Ubuntu 14.04. It installed perfectly. However, the usual blackened character problem occurs. This is caused by multicore CPUs. So I have to explicitly enable single core for the game to run flawlessly.

I did so in Windows and enabled single-core and it ran well. Now, how can I do the same in Wine? I already tried taskset and it didn't work. Thanks in advance


try this.

Open up play on Linux

click on the game you installed then click on configure. I am using ImageBurn as an example. Note you need to be running the application.

enter image description here

then click on the wine tab enter image description here

Then click on Task Manager enter image description here right click the task and click on go to processthen right click on the process and click on set affinity.

enter image description here

then unpick the cores you don't want to use.

Hope it helps.
