For centuries the kingdom of Andergast has been at odds with neighboring Nostria, but now first steps are being undertaken toward a lasting peace. But a plague of crows troubles the king, for the birds are acting with unusual aggressiveness, even attacking humans. As the belligerent creatures infiltrate even the castle itself, the king seeks a skilled bird catcher - an opportunity for young Geron to prove that the reputation for ill luck that has followed him since childhood is undeserved. However, the task will prove much more difficult than he expects, leading him on an adventure that will take him to the borders of the charted lands of Aventuria and beyond.

Personal Notes:
Another gem from Daedalic. Worth the money, please buy it.

Known Issues:
You won't be able to manually save until you do the following:
1. Go to the folder: "Chains of Satinav.app/Contents/Resources/drive_c/users/Wineskin/Local Settings/Application Data/Daedalic Entertainment/Satinav"
2. open the "Messages.log" file
3. Inside you'll find several messages and among them one that says about a path similar to this: /var/folders/_v/gqmw08796rv5jybw4b115twr0000gn
4. copy the big weird folder name
5. Go to the wrapper's files, drive_c/var/folders/_v
6. Rename the weird folder name with your own weird folder name
7. Close everything, you should be able to save now

Installation (Wineskin Wrapper):
Install using Wineskin installer or move the game folder in the wrapper from Parallels / Bootcamp
DO NOT INSTALL DIRECTX OR ANYTHING ELSE IF OFFERED TO. IT WILL MAKE THE WRAPPER UNPLAYABLE SLOW
Apply the Crack from RELOADED (not the SKidRow one - it doesn't work). Sorry, DRM doesn't work with my ports.
Play!

Installation (Cider Wrapper):
Install using any Wineskin wrapper if you don't have bootcamp / parallels or if you're using steam.
Move the game folder from where you installed it, inside the wrapper. Right click (option click) the wrapper and select Show Package Contents.
Make sure the game path is correct. Check the plist file inside the Contents directory
Close everything and run the game. If you did anything right, have fun!

Thanks for downloading!

TDE?
Is it an RPG? TDE is an Pen&Paper RPG system much like AD&D, but as far as I know it's only been used in europe.

The Drakensang games uses TDE system too.

Looks like a game I have to check out!

Is it available on any major services (like steam, did check steam didn't find it tho)? I just checked their site and the store there sent me to a norwegian store page, with norwegian prices ≈ $55!!!!
It is TDE but this game is a point-and-click adventure. And a really good one with hand drawn graphics. It's not available on steam (yet), although it requires steam activation (??)
I bought it from here, it has the chepest price I could find, 26GBP, no idea how much it will show in $ but 26GBP = $40

DRM does work in wine depending which ones. Most Digital games which contain Securom DRM versions (like this one not DVD) work just fine and some other web ones.
Ones not working at the moment:
Startforce DRM
Tages DRM
Uniloc DRM
DRM tends to create more problems than it solves in Wine. Even when it's supported, it often leads to crashes with page faults and stack overflows. Remember, wine's kernel32.dll is not a full copy of the windows one, and it is often that the headers the kernel reads from the executable can be completely wrong and even have an invalid entry point in a file or a dll. Not to mention that most disc versions of DRM'd games require the disc to be in the drive.
I literally have no time to play around a DRM and whether it works 100% with a game, and certainly don't intend to wait to complete the whole game to verify that it won't create any problems.
So, as far as all my ports are concerned, DRM does not work. Even if it does, don't ask me for help when the game crashes. I'll rephrase the op if you want and write that DRM does not work with my ports.

  • Securom 5.xx (and higher)

Most Securom versions are lower then 5.xx I own 899 games from gamersgate which many of them have Securom protection. On the site I host I show over 450 videos where a lot of them proof i am not telling bullnice here where i Activate the games without issues.
As far as I'm concerned, you didn't get me right. I didn't say you say bull, I said that I don't care about DRM, so my advice to the people who download my ports, is to crack it. Simple as that. You can do whatever you want with your site and your ports.
Can you help me? I just purchased this game from adventure gamers and it gave me one .exe file and three .bin files and I don't know how to go about installing it in this wrapper. Does this wrapper still work when they split up the install files?
I think it should, download the wrapper, hold Fn+click. You should see a Wineskin window, click Install Software, choose setup executable and select the .exe file and the setup should start. Follow  the rest of the instructions here. After it completes, make sure that the path in the Advanced section of wineskin is pointing to the proper file, and then close everything, double click and play! If the game crashes, try using Reloaded's crack.

Thank you so much for you advice. It worked. I'm installing the files now. I completed the installation process and the game works flawlessly so far. I'm playing it on an intel HD graphics 3000, so you don't need nVidia GT330M 256MB graphic card to play this game.  I also didn't need a crack to play the game without a cd. I don't know if it's because the game was a download, but I had no problems playing it and I been using the autosave feature to save my process. The only thing that doesn't seem to work is saving manually, at least when i press save, nothing seems to happen, but when I click autosave, it seems to automatically save my process and I can continue from where I left off. Are you supposed to be able to save manually or does the game just work by autosave? If so, then my game is fine since it's still autosaving my process. In addition, for some reason even though I unclicked directx, but it still extracted it to my game folder anyway so I deleted the directx folder, because sometimes the game will pause for a couple of seconds, and I think it was due to the directx, so I thought the game would be fine now since I deleted the directx folder but it still pauses for a couple of seconds randomly. How do I go about fixing this problem?
I get pausing as well, looks like that's a wine bug, but it doesn't affect the gameplay that much. The save problem can be easily fixed:
1. Go to the folder: "Chains of Satinav.app/Contents/Resources/drive_c/users/Wineskin/Local Settings/Application Data/Daedalic Entertainment/Satinav"
2. open the "Messages.log" file
3. Inside you'll find several messages and among them one that says about a path similar to this: /var/folders/_v/gqmw08796rv5jybw4b115twr0000gn
4. copy the big weird folder name
5. Go to the wrapper's files, drive_c/var/folders/_v
6. Rename the weird folder name with your own weird folder name
7. Close everything, you should be able to save now

On a side note, the game is now also available on Steam
Thanks for the wrapper! The game runs good on my old macbook pro!

You don't understand...I only react on your post that "sorry DRM does not work in wine" which is a wrong statment. It does work fine, for many games with securom lower then 5.x. Thats thething i point out. for the rest no comments about this post.
There I edited it. I just have a template for all my ports and if you look at my other ports you'll see they are the same. My advise to everyone, though, is still the same. Crack it, you'll have one less headache when / if it crashes.
I tried to use the cider wrapper but as the game loads I get this message:
"Exception raised
Unhandled exception 0xc0000409 at adress 0x008a8d19.
Would you like to create a crash report?"
I click 'No" and I'm back in the Desktop.
I moved the files from my PC (adding the fix) where the game works fine.
Did I do something wrong or did I miss something?
