i have 1 bigfish game install and plays fine.

but do i have to keep reinstall the bfgclient for every bigfish game ?
i keep running into admin right on the second game to install.

I couldn't figure out how to use winetrick -q ie6.

so i just install ie6 , copy&rename the wineprefix , and change the launch.
then install the bigfish game. a little work but that was fine for 1 time.
I have over 10 bigfish games.

okay i figure out way to install other bigfish games in the same prefix.
i move the small exe to bigfish wineprefix folder , change launch to small exe.
run it change it back to bfgclient.exe.

just dont change tabs downloads failed on me.

to bad playonlinux doesn't have a run command. run exe in that prefix.

Install -> Unsupported apps -> Existing prefix

And for ie6 : Install -> Other -> PlayOnLinux functions (no need to use winetricks :-])

It will be more clear for POL v4

So long ago to be resurrecting this thread, but how did you install BFG in the first place? I have tried to install both 'Plants versus Zombies' and the BF games manager, both get as far as the login screen, input name, pass, click, hang ...same result in wine - perhaps it's a version thing?

 

Ubuntu 12.04.01 LTS, POL 4.2.5

Ha Ha!  Necromancy good wink

I don't see a new thread for Big Fish client.  I've never successfully installed & launched a game  through it.

Alright I sort out method for introducing other bigfish games in a similar prefix.
I move the little exe to bigfish wineprefix envelope , change send off to little exe.
run it transform it back to bfgclient.exe.

just dont change tabs downloads bombed on me.

to terrible playonlinux doesn't have a run order. run exe in that prefix.
