Dungeons and Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game using Dungeons and Dragons v3.5 rules from Wizards of the Coast and based in the world of Ebberron. It has recently gone free to play, and still seems to work just fine using the same old installation process.
At this point you should be able to sign in and play the game. But its normal for some issues to arise. Here are some tweaks/fixes you can try.
“AwsomiumProcess has encountered…”
This error is common among the Wine games. Seems to pertain to the fonts somehow. In many cases the error can be closed & ignored. The game continues to work fine. But it doesn’t stop once it starts. The fix is to run:
This problem (if it occurs) happens to kick in when you try to switch to windowed mode or change video resolutions. In my case on Manjaro the solution was to install the ‘pulseaudio-alsa’ package and reboot my system.
Set the correct video memory size in the Registry.
Wine doesn’t usually input your video memory size correctly. To take advantage of your video memory you can set the amount yourself with winetricks.
1gb = 1024 (change to your video memory size).
$ winetricks videomemorysize=1024
Set Direct Draw Renderer to OpenGL
Setting this option can improve the game performance. Or at least it seems to work in my case.
$ winetricks ddr=opengl
Set OffscreenRenderingMode to pbuffer
Open regedit with:
$ wine regedit
Fine the key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D
And a new string value named ‘OffscreenRenderingMode’ and set it to ‘pbuffer’
Install PhysX (Nvidia only)
Nvidia users can improve the performance of game physics by installing PhysX from Nvidia. Winetricks can handle this.
$ winetricks physx
Tweaking the game:
Setting the video memory size usually fixes most performance issues. However there is a list of things you can do to try to kick the performance up an extra notch. Of course these are just suggestions. They are all optional.
Disable desktop 3D effects (In Unity switch to 2D session)
The 3D desktop features can cause some performance issues in the game. Logging out and changing your Unity session, or disabling 3D desktop effects can greatly increase game performance.
Choose a ‘Graphics Quality’ in Options->Graphics
It’s common for the auto detection to misdetect the card since there is a wine api in the middle of everything. Select this manually to get the quality you want. (I chose ‘very high’ for my 1gb Nvidia card)
Increase ‘Texture Cache Size’ in Options->Adv. Graphics
You can increase this to improve the game performance by increasing the amount of system memory used for graphics resources. This can decrease load times and in turn increase game performance. Enable ‘Triple Buffering’ in Options->Adv. Graphics
For video cards with extra memory you can use this setting to slightly increase rendering performance. Disable ‘Player Mesh Combining’ in Options->Adv. Graphics
This feature not only uses up more system memory, but also video memory. Saving a little video memory can always help game performance.
Disable ‘Distant Imposters’ in Options->Adv. Graphics
This option simply allows trees and other objects to render over distant scenery. Can be disabled to increase game performance.
