This tutorial will show you how to run LEGO Rock Raiders on Ubuntu. This has only been tested on Ubuntu 17.10, it may work with earlier versions. Note to you nerds like me: I could not get LRR running well on Windows 10 and was ecstatic to find out that Linux ran it well! So Linux FTW!
First, you will need the files from your LEGO Rock Raiders disk - more importantly, you need the game files.
Secondly, you will need to install wine and playonlinux.
sudo apt-get install wine-stable
sudo apt-get install playonlinux
Thirdly, you'll need the dreaded d3drm.
Download here: d3drm
1. Open playonlinux
2. Click on install (it has a plus sign)
3. Click on Bottom Left Link that says "Install a non-listed program"
4. Choose "Install a new program in a virtual drive"
5. Pick any virtual drive name you would like. Mine is: LegoLegacy (no spaces are important)
6. Check the first two boxes "Use another version of wine" and "Configure wine"
7. Choose "System" - I only had that choice.
8. Choose "32 bits windows installation" - this is important it is 32 bit.
9. The Wine Configuration window should pop up: Click on the Graphics tab and check the "Emulate a virtual desktop" and leave the other settings. Click "Apply" and "Ok"
10. The next playonlinux window will ask you where to install the file from. You need to browse to the file "Setup.exe" from your LRR CD.
11. Follow the installation like its 1999! - make sure to also install Direct X6 when it asks.
12. Close out the window.
13. playonlinux will come up with another window asking to make a shortcut - click on "LegoRR.exe" then click next twice.
14. It will return to that same shortcut menu, this time select "I don't want to make another shortcut"
15. Re-open playonlinux and click on LegoRR, but before you press "Run" you need to add in the d3drm.
`16. To do this, click on "Open the directory" around the bottom-left.
17. Unzip the d3drm file and copy the d3drm.dll file that you just unzipped and copy it into the directory playonlinux opened for you.
18. Go back to playonlinux and click "Run" and choose any of the fullscreen running options.
