xubuntu 16.04:
playonlinux
wine staging 2.19 (32bit)
d3dx9
dotnet4.0
enabled CSMT
replacement of the file "data.myp", as recommended in this topic by posts earlier(without replacing this, the game is loaded, but nothing happens at the moment of server selection)

Game works almost perfect! Sometimes there are small glitches with sounds, but in general for 8 days, there was not a single crash or bugs(not counting those that are in the game itself) :)

For password change I'd suggest using only lower case, upper case and numbers and up to 8 characters. Sorry for low security!

I believe there is no such bug there, because all the textures look exactly like on windows

I just cant get it to work, there is just problem after problem although it feels like I'm close. :)

As I have written before I have tried with winetricks and the original launcher with huge .Net problems. Now I've been trying with the ror_launch, the game starts and I get to the start screen where I can change settings etc. The problem is that there are no server selection on the screen as I guess it should be. A friend has sent me his data.myp so I have replaced that file but still no go.

After a while I get a "Critical Error" saying:

Code: Select all

Authentication failed application will now terminate
Which leads to a lot of unspecific solutions on the forum about antivirus etc..

You need the patched data.myp from https://github.com/ThiconZ/Return-of-Re ... g/v1.0.0.3

For more than a month in game, I can say that in general the game is runs well, but i have annoying lags during battles(not always, but this is especially noticeable when around more than 10 players), even with the graphics settings set to minimum. I wonder if this is the problem of the game itself or i miss some wine settings?.

Try wine-staging-pba
first wine-staging lets you enable CSMT which pushes rendering to another CPU thread.
then pba reduces stalls on GPU waits quite a bit.

here is the info about the pba patches: https://comminos.com/posts/2018-02-21-w ... iling.html
heres the github page: https://github.com/acomminos/wine-pba

and if you don't know how to compile then use Lutris, i hear it has wine pba builds.

edit: but i remember from the old times that this game ran pretty bad on windows also back in 2010 or so when i last used windows. But i was handling 10-20 players fine, bigger fights were slideshow

isn't staging is not in development anymore?
also isn't few or most their patches is already in main wine branch?
maybe i am wrong but even CSMT is here, but can be enabled only via registry.

https://www.reddit.com/r/wine_gaming/co ... t_support/

however i switched from staging to usual WINE long toime ago and don't see any downsides.

#pkg info -x wine
i386-wine-3.0,1
wine-gecko-2.40
winetricks-20180217
