    This script will facilitate install of this game on Linux OS: "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" CD edition using Lutris Wine runner and dgVoodoo2 http://dege.freeweb.hu/dgVoodoo2/dgVoodoo2.html During install please let all options by default. Big thanks to the people who helped us play this game in the best conditions on Linux.

    - You will need CD only during install
    - Known issue:
    -- The mouse can get out of hand with most versions of WIne. Reason why this script will install and use Lutris Wine version 4.21
    -- HP2COS has insufficient controller support. You will find an Antimicrox profile for a x360 controller in the "gamepad profiles" folder

  • Wine PC Retail CD version last published 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    This version is intended to be used with the original cd of the game.

    The game is preconfigured with the highest settings so there's no need to tweak them unless you want to.
    If you choose to tweak the settings, you should select the DGVoodoo2 Renderer for the best results. However you can bypass DGVoodoo2 entirely by choosing the Direct3D renderer.

The second Harry Potter role-playing game follows directly on from the first, with mostly the same game mechanics, controls and even some of the graphics.

To unravel the mystery of the Chamber of Secrets, young wizard Harry Potter must fight turn-based battles and solve quests. In this game, he is not alone, as a party system was added: his friends Ron and Hermione (and some other characters) will join Harry in the battles. While Harry (as in the previous game) can use card combinations of Famous Witches and Wizards cards to produce special attacks and effects, his friends have other means: Ron can unleash his rat Scabbers in special rat attacks and Hermione, being the know-it-all that she is, influences combat through "lecture attacks", using helpful hints like "Be Careful!" (which increases defense, for example).

Like the first game, this one also includes several mini-games, including Quidditch, that once found in the game can be accessed from the main menu.
