RE: Crash when loading character
by B.Collins on Monday May 7th 2012, 2:28
The problem appears to be related to the fact that I was using an install created by the CoX Good vs Evil dvd. Even when fully patched, the game would hang on the loading screen after choosing a character.
1. I went into my winXP virtualbox, downloaded the NCSoft launcher and installed the game with that, and patched.
2. Copied the NCSoft folders over to wine.
3. Dropped Mark's cohlaunch.pl into the NCSoft\City of Heroes\ folder.
4. Ran the launcher with --repair first, and then normally (./cohlaunch.pl --keep --en -live -renderthread 0)
5. CoH now runs flawlessly.
