I'd like to develop games without running Windows. More generally, I can think of several uses for Wine. How do I make programs running under Wine talk? For example if at the terminal I type
wine bgt_english_installer.exe
it opens what I presume to be the setup wizard but I can't hear it.

actually, this might be possible. I could be wrong, just a theory of mine. Basically, if you get an existing bgt.exe file from an existing installation and copy exec.bin, you might be able to run code using the commandline options.

You can install it. Open the installer, press alt n three times then alt I, wait a while and alt F... That's it!

i don't really know why you'd install this. its not as if you'd be coding in it.

And no, this isn't exactly possible. Due to BGT's constant use of GUI windows instead of the CLI like most compilers and interpreters do, and it's heavy reliance on windows-only features... your luck even getting it to work is extremely minimal at best.

I actually did get Adventure at C: working as an experiment back in the day, but I used bottles from winetricks. I forget which ones I used, sadly; games can be made to run, though. And adding in SAPI might make them speak.
