How to Play Yu Gi Oh! Joey The Passion on Ubuntu 16.04

For a couple weeks I've been working on back and forth between Ubuntu and Windows. I code mostly on Ubuntu but something I can't live without is in Windows. Guest what? It's a game, more specific it's Yu Gi Oh! Joey The Passion. A game that I grew with. It's a simple game but very exciting because you can arrange your deck in countless possibilities.

Then, I ask my self (and Google), can I play this game in Ubuntu so I don't have to switch between Windows or even remove Windows completely. The answer is possibly according to this link. As long as it's not 0%, let's give it a shot.

Install Wine

First thing first is to install Wine. As per their website mention :

Wine (originally an acronym for “Wine Is Not an Emulator”) is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, macOS, & BSD.

You can follow the instruction on their website to install Wine, but in case their web is down, you can always back here :

  1. If your system is 64-bit, enable 32-bit architecture (if you haven't already) :

    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
  2. Add the repository :

    wget -nc
    sudo apt-key add Release.key
    sudo apt-add-repository
  3. Update the packages

    sudo apt-get update
  4. Install the stable release, as this writing, the stable version is wine-3.0.3

    sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable

That's it, you should have wine installed on your machine now. You can check it by issuing this command wine --version.

Install Yu Gi Oh! Joey The Passion

I found Yu Gi Oh! Joey The Passion game on my old machine. This is not an installer rather just an executable and a bunch of supporting files.

To run Yu Gi Oh! Joey The Passion, simply double-click the main executable of the game. Wait for a sec and you good to go. As far as I concern everything in the game is working fine including Single player, Import, export, Sound, Video, and Replay. I have not tested the Network player (Multiplayer) though.

If you find the multiplayer works, please let me know.

Bonus: All card crack!

If you intended to cheat to get all card, yes! you can do it too in Ubuntu. There are a bunch of applications to do this, you can pick whatever you want. To get all the cards you need to follow these steps :

  1. Run the all cards application. Usually, Wine will ask you to install several additional programs, just click OK or Next until it disappears.

  2. Set Yu Gi Oh! Joey The Passion to run in compatibility mode by issuing this command winecfg. On Applications tab, focus on Windows version and select Windows XP.

  3. Click OK and you good to go. Open Yu Gi Oh! Joey The Passion and you'll see a 100% on card list.
