Hi,

Following XPander video, i could easily install the game, no issue at all.
I am now playing, and as far as i can tell, everything works nicely.

I’m on Linux Manjaro xfce.

Thanks !

Would like to confirm that the method from Lutris works on a 19.10 Ubuntu GNOME fresh installation with Wine Staging.

I dont use lutris myself either. But made the video using that because its simple for many users.

btw you dont need whole d3dx9, nor msxml3... you just need d3dx9_34 corefonts and dotnet40

this is my starting script

Running this on Pop!_OS - can confirm my performance vs windows is a thousand times better.

It must be something on your system then. I just tested it from scratch, installed with lutris again. with the 5.4 wine. just same as in my videos, click and click and it works.
Can you try some other distro just to test it? maybe you are missing something on your Arch insrtallation. I do use Arch Linux myself also though.

I would like to confirm that it was problem related to my Arch installation.
I installed Gentoo in a folder (stage3 and chroot to it), base system configuration and installed wine, winetricks with their dependencies.
And with d3dx9_34 (whiteish login screen without it) corefonts dotnet40 64 bit prefix the game works (launcher, login screen, game itself). But without DXVK. FPS is relatively playable but Slaanesh demands to seek for perfection, so let's try with DXVK..

But using the same prefix after enabling DXVK ( "setup_dxvk.sh install" ) the launcher starts to crash on start with "the program RorLauncher.exe has encountered serious problem and needs to close." https://pastebin.com/sGXHbJ0q Upon disabling DXVK with "setup_dxvk.sh uninstall" problem disappears. Tried same with 1.5.5 1.6 DXVK and wine 5.3-5.4 versions and 32 wine prefix - no visible impact. It feels strange that launcher is so sensitive to 3D. To make sure that vulkan works in that gentoo chroot, I tried the same prefix with DXVK to play other game - rimworld - it runs ok.

you dont want to use dxvk with thatone, it has the bright ground texture issue with dxvk.

https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/1296

to get more performance, enable ESYNC or FSYNC if your kernel supports that. Though since you run intel HD GPU iirc, then it might have some limitations how much you can squeeze out of it.

also don't make 32bit prefix, and run the 64 bit executable if you dont want to crash out in huge battles

Good to know. Without ESYNC it was ok, until large scale RVR that brought less than 1 FPS, massive stutters.
ESYNC brought huge performance boost - at least 20 FPS even in large scale RVR.


Also sometimes part of map (discovered part, I suspect) becomes black, only full game relaunch helps. Image
Any fix?

Upd:
Sometimes it gets stuck on respawn screen (the loading never ends).

that map thing also happens on windows afaik and happened on live game back in the days.
iirc it will fix itself when you switch zones (flightmaster/loading screen) and if you disable post processing the part of the map can be white instead of black. It only happens in t2-t3 zones afaik where the orvr lakes are on 2 zones

Updated Wine yesterday and Lutris no longer does anything, tried even a fresh install - pressing "Play" holds for a few seconds before reverting back to it again.

Could someone brief me with a few terminal commands to run the scripts you're using to get it going? I have the torrent downloaded again, even the Lutris folder set up, but nothing happens even when trying to open RoRlauncher.exe with Wine.
