We Need Help from Everyone!

If you get Aion to work an any operating system with wine, please submit the test and put on the additional comments how did you get the game to work! Any operating system test it's appreciated, but please, if there are already tests with your same operating system, same wine version, same Aion version and same things done and doesn't work, don't post it! We really appreciate your help and we would like to get this game working with wine on as many OS's we can!

Regards,
Stef


Also, if you want some of the wine developers to help us get Aion to work, please VOTE!

*You will find the Vote link in the upper left corner of this page in application description.


If you are submitting test data or possible bug report/solution please submit also your hardware specification and installed closed drivers if any.

Regards,
Oskar


 
HOWTO

To make the game work you have to:

1. DEPRECATED IN WINE 1.2-RC2 AND UP: Temporary solution for installing/patching:

  • You must have separate windows os installed or using virtualization software as virtualbox (no gpu accel required) and such.
  • Virtual machine advise: mount linux wine directory as sharing folder to minimize virtual machine disk consumption and install there for better synergy with WINE.
  • Install/update in your virtual/separate windows.

1. Installing/patching:

In WINE 1.2-RC2 you can install Aion directly. For detailed instruction look here.
The info above left for possible future regressions.

2. To make the game run in WINE you have to install few things by winetricks:

winetricks d3dx9 vcrun2005 dotnet20

It already should be installed if you have done the NCSoft Launcher tutorial.

3. The game opens large amount of file descriptors, therefore you must raise the security limit for your user:

On linux as root add lines to /etc/security/limits.conf:

yourusername soft nofile 8192
yourusername hard nofile 8192

And replace yourusername with your user.

On Mac OS X write into terminal:

sudo pico /etc/launchd.conf

and add there a line:

limit maxfiles 8192

Any system: Save files and reboot to make changes go in effects. Confirm if it works by writing into terminal:

ulimit -n

It should show the value which you set, in this example 8192.

4. Run the game:

US:   wine  bin32\aion.bin -noauthgg -ip:64.25.35.103 -port:2106 -cc:1 -lang:enu -noweb
EU:   wine  bin32\aion.bin -noauthgg -ip:206.127.147.28 -port:2106 -cc:2 -lang:enu -noweb

5. If the game crashes on NCsoft Black Screen:

After each step check if it is working. For some people one step is enought, some need all of them.

  1. Go to Configure Wine > Graphics and activate Emulate Virtual Desktop.
  2. Launch the game adding -ncg flag to the commands:
    US:   wine  bin32\aion.bin -noauthgg -ncg -ip:206.127.153.247 -port:2106 -cc:1 -lang:enu -noweb
    EU:   wine  bin32\aion.bin -noauthgg -ncg -ip:206.127.147.28 -port:2106 -cc:2 -lang:enu -noweb
  3. Delete/Move out/Rename the aegisty.bin file in Aion/bin32 folder.

6. Change your command depending on your needs:

The command explained for your needs is:

-noauthgg          <---- Disable GG authorization.
-ip:206.127.147.28 <---- IP of the server, EU or US.
-port:2106         <---- The port is always same, so leave it.
-cc:1              <---- Country Code. This determines you run US or EU client.
-lang:enu          <---- Change it to match your language files.
-noweb             <---- Disable visiting Aion page after quiting game. Leave it.

PS If you have the EU client and put -cc:1 (or viceversa with US client and -cc:2) the game will show in Korean!

6. How to switchbetween EU and US client:

The only difference between the EU and the US client is the folder L10N in the Aion directory!

  1. You must zip/rar/tar.gz the current L10N folder and name the zip/rar/tar.gz file "L10N EU (or US, depending on what client you have)" to remember which L10N folder is that.
  2. You must delete the current L10N folder (Remember to do step 1 first) and rename the AionEU or AionUS folder to Aion.
  3. Go to the NC soft launcher (on windows or Virtualbox or whatever) and change on the settings the client fotr European to North American or viceversa and then Aion will show up saying it needs some updates, which they must be around 800-900mb, download them and close the launcher.
  4. Now go to the Aion folder and the L10N folder must have reappeard, zip/rar/tar.gz it and name the zip/rar/tar.gz "L10N US (or EU, depending on what you switched to)".
  5. Now, depending on what client you want to switch, unzip/rar/tar.gz the right L10N folder.
  6. From now on you just need to change the L10N folder and and run the right launcher! (Right -cc, -ip, etc!)
  7. Hope this worked!

 
WARNING

Known bugs:

  • The mouse bug that disappears when you rotate the screen IS NOT a wine bug! It's a client bug of the game that happens on Windows too.
  • Above info may be deprecated! Please submit here your vote on the problem.
  • The mouse glitch when you try to pan or rotate is another common bug. To fix it you have to add patch to wine source and compile it yourself.
    In 'wine-source/dlls/winex11.drv/mouse.c' find (t the bottom of the SetCursorPos function) :

    wine_tsx11_unlock();
    return TRUE;

    and replace it with:

    wine_tsx11_unlock();
    queue_raw_mouse_message( WM_MOUSEMOVE, NULL, NULL, x, y, 0, GetCurrentTime(), 0, 0 );
    return TRUE;

    If you want this bug to be fixed without source hacks please vote for it.
  • It may be crashy on some systems (Mac OS X and Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope is confirmed).
    On OS X 10.6.3 using wine 1.2-rc3 from MacPorts, with mouse glitch source hack it is stable.
  • The pointer doesn't show properly and shows grey (Tested with Wine 1.1.31 on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope)

 
Installing AION with Wine
Yes, let's start from scratch =)

You need the AION game client, in the version you intend to play. Please see the tests to determine which version you could run or not.
Actually, there's no found way to run the NCsoft Launcher with wine, so you must use a Windows system (sorry) to download AION, then transfer files to your Linux box. You may want to use a Virtual Machine for this purpose.

It's also recommended to use an empty wineprefix.

Required tools: wine, winetricks

HOWTO

> Install dependencies
# winetricks d3dx9 vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008 dotnet20 dotnet30 gdiplus

> Start AION
# wine /path/to/AION/install/bin32/aion.bin [your parameters]

It's as simple as that =) AION should run smoothly on your system if you have a proper OpenGL layer working.

could this be aion attempting to use nonexistent memory resulting in a segfault?

does anyone have any suggestions for troubleshooting this error?

New patch, crash at splash screen -howto fix.
by Dustin on Monday June 7th 2010, 0:38
A new patch came out for Aion. 1.9 I believe. I updated it with my virtual xp machine then I transfered it over to wine. Come to find out, Aion wouldn't work after the patch. I was skeptical so I started messing with it and here's the error I got.


wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x025d1000 at address 0x1000f2c1 (thread 0009), starting debugger...
Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x025d1000 in 32-bit code (0x1000f2c1).

I searched it up and got nothing so I decided to read the comments on this page. One of the things I read about was -ncg to stop aeregistry.bin from loading. The command I use in the terminal I use had the -ncg so I decided to take the next step. I took out aeregistry.bin from the bin32 folder. Aion worked.

So if you're getting the error above and it's crashing at the splash screen, just move aeregistry.bin to a different folder and run the command again.

More info for play aion
by Marco on Saturday May 15th 2010, 8:22
Firt fo all download the last video driver for your grahpic card then reboot and follow the tutorial.

In Wine Config select Support for Vertex Shader "Hardware" and allow Pxel Shader then in Lib add mmdevapi and set it as (disabled).

In Audio Select Driver Alsa (or something else)

add the -ncg to the command line for expample

wine /bin32/aion.bin -ip:206.127.147.28 -port:2106 -cc:2 -noauthgg -lang:enu -noweb -ncg

i can play aion for several hour and with no bug
(no anti aliasing... i try to force it buy using my nvidia control pannel but it don't work, only black screen)

have a nice game!

NCLauncher
by Patrick on Sunday April 25th 2010, 2:10
I'm trying to make the NCLauncher work in wine 1.1.43.. I'm getting error messages and a gray main-window so far... but.. if I replace the launcher with an updated older version I'm able to install/update & launch the game.

Before install: nclauncher.wikispaces.com/file/view/screen_2.jpg
Downloading & updating aion: nclauncher.wikispaces.com/file/view/screen_3.jpg


I have created a wiki to store the progress on the launcher & fixes.
Feel free to make changes if you figure out some fixes for the errors.
More errors & possible error fixes can posted in the discussion page.

Aion on Mac

So i am trying to run Aion on Mac. I followed the following link:

www.codeweavers.com/compatibility/browse/name/?app_id=5820;forum=1;msg=63674;forumthreadcurPos=0

I successfully overpassed the gameguard problem, but i am now to
a new problem.

I run the command, the Aion logo appears but it is stuck there. This is shown below:

Is that serious ?
by soyel on Wednesday March 17th 2010, 4:51
(admin:rating changed to garbage / do not use applications already installed in native windows as you will damage your windows installation)

I told I used the installation from my windows disk, not that it was on the same partition ! Plus, we cannot install it from wine due to the .NET NClauncher, so you have to install it from a windows (native or virtualized) anyway. So what the point about sucha comment ?

Hopefully i rated it as silver ... except few crashes that i experianced in some densited zones the game was running smoothly.

Ok I don't have sound because i didn't want to bother patch wine for something that i never use (sound in game). But is that really deserve a garbage rating ? You guys really should stop rating for each others or take off our ability to rate our test, that's really nonsense.

Regards.

Problem while installing
by Florian Traverse on Friday March 12th 2010, 13:35
I have reinstalled Aion (after some hardware failure) from the DVD under Linux and I could'nt get it to work again.

I've tried with the NCSoft windows launcher (as someone said he had some success with it) which gives me a stupid error on a path that does not exist (I just don't know which one, any idea ?), and running it with one of the launchers gave me some segmntation fault (I saw later that it was due to the language and maybe due to some option when launching the game too)

I then tried to copy an Aion installation from another computer running on Windows on top of my installation and had no success when trying to launch it with launcher.sh v0.2 even with better options on the aion.bin command line : I've got a popup while launching the game saying "The program is unavailable in your country"

Any help is welcome :)

Sound
by mb on Tuesday March 9th 2010, 0:12
To make sound work in newer wine versions do this:
- run winecfg
- go to Libraries tab
- add a new override for mmdevapi it will be created as (native, builtin)
- select mmdevapi and click on Edit
- change the load order to disable
- click OK
- go into Audio tab and make sure you have ALSA Driver (or some other driver selected)
- click OK

your system should be fine now to run, the change is needed on mmdevapi because the devs just added support for it and it's broken, disabling it will get us the old behavior

btw i am using wine 1.1.40

Problem with panning while right-clicking
by Jens on Thursday February 25th 2010, 20:41
The game works perfectly, even with bloom =) although anti-aliasing would be neat too it isn't necessary :P..

However, when I try to turn the camera view with right-clicking or left-clicking and moving the mouse around (regardless of direction) my screen just jumps back to the back of my character and makes it look like my game is lagging (which it ain't).

Anyone got a similar problem or had and knows of a fix :)?

My experiences
by R4IN on Thursday February 25th 2010, 3:13
Hi all!

i hope my weak english won't ruin this :)

First of all, i'm using wine 1.1.36 because sound doesn't work for me with newer versions (1.1.38). I've installed the game in vmware.

no-ip patch, written by fyyre:
doesn't work under wine, forget about private servers. That dx3dx9_38.dll modifies aion's game.dll at runtime, in the memory. The game will crash (SegFault) if you try to use it. I've tried to dump out game.dll from the memory (under win of course), but i've got "invalid function" under wine so we have to wait for someone with better skills. Game.dll is about 12MB without debugging symbols, function names. Reverse engineers have all my respect :) i'll try to reach fyyre, maybe he/she could help.

DirectX / unimplemented function:
You don't have to install directx, the game needs only one dll, in my case (1.5.1.11) that's dx3dx9_36.dll just put it into bin32. Without the dll u will see something like this:
"unimplemented function dx3dx9_36.dll.DX3DXCreateSphere, aborting"

ulimit / CryPhysics.dll error:
if your distro doesn't have limits.conf or you don't find any config to modify, do the following: in a root shell type "ulimit -n" and u will see the actual limit (on my machine it's 1024). I don't know how many files aion wants the open but 12288 surely works so "ulimit -n 12288" will do the job. Then (still in the root shell) type "su myuser". Your new shell will inherit the newly configured limit.
Without that i've got "Error loading DLL CryPhysics.dll, error code 126"

Language problems (again):
there are two ways to change your language settings, u can modify your cc.ini in the game dir or you can use the command line parameter (-cc:X). For the EU version use "2", for the NA version use "1" if you want english.

"No game server is available to the authorization server":
You're trying to connect to a private server. It won't work without the no-ip patch, see above

"You are disconnected from the server":
not a wine specific problem either, the game server is down or doesn't allow new logins at the moment. I saw this a few hours before server upgrade. Maybe your friend can play because he logged in earlier.

"Aion(1024) Failed to initialize":
Another informative message, one of my favorites :)) The problem was in my L10N dir, with one of the *.pak files. Delete the whole L10N dir, then run the updater, it will download it again.

After all of these finally i can play. The performance looks good. The strange is that i had graphical glitches in the NA client, but not in the EU client (with the same settings). I haven't died yet so i can talk about the glitches there.
I hope you can find useful information in this post,
GOOD LUCK!

Update & Launch
by Patrick on Sunday February 7th 2010, 13:13
Install .NET Framework 2.0 & C++ Runtime (thru winetricks) + all fonts (dunno if I installed).. And launch the game thru the NCLauncher with the parameter:

/LaunchGame=Aion
or
/LaunchGame=AionEU

(aka run the game with the default shortcut created on the desktop)

The launcher won't work entirely, but you will be able to update and launch the game.
I tried this right after NCSoft removed GameGuard, and it worked for me. But the Aion was kinda unstable in the version of wine I used back then.

No Sound

Following the instructions got Aion working great, with the exception of sound. I have several other games working and no sound issues with those. I haven't been able to figure out what is different about the sound in this game. fixme:mmdevapi:MMDevEnum_GetDefaultAudioEndpoint stub is the only error I'm getting that seems related to sound. Wine is setup using ALSA only. Hopefully someone can give me some ideas.

I've been trying to get this working for days now, but every time I launch the game, it begins to launch, and I get the "Aion" prelaunch splash screen, but then it just closes. When I look at terminal the final line is "Segmentation Fault" and I have absolutely NO idea on how to fix this.

White Blotchy Sprites.
by Ralph Lawrence on Sunday January 3rd 2010, 7:20
I have managed to get Aion running, and everything appears to be fine except a rather large graphical error. It appears that most sprites are appearing unrenderable.

Terminal is giving the following feedback continually:
fixme:d3d:dumpResources Leftover resource 0x21b490 with type 1,WINED3DRTYPE_SURFACE
fixme:d3d:dumpResources Leftover resource 0x21b2b0 with type 3,WINED3DRTYPE_TEXTURE

For reference I have an ATI Radeon 4770. Originally Kubuntu didn't like this card, and made all sorts of graphical glitches, but these faded immediately after installing the relevant generic graphics driver.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Graphic Error BAD - White Smoke
by kurt on Wednesday December 16th 2009, 21:47
I can get Aion to start up, login, and even enter my character, BUT i get this weird white box/smoke/cloud which effects my whole screen.

I have tried changing the environment of wine, change some of the settings within Aion, and tried emulating Desktop with Wine.

AND after tweaking and trying to run Aion for about 10 minutes, my whole computer freezes. This includes starting up Aion, shutting it down, opening winecfg, and using the terminal.
NOTE: The game does in fact freeze my whole computer, and I only get these freezes when the game is open.

Hi, i play Aion on a private server, after login i get this "Canot conect to the Authorization server" warning an the game is closed. I experience this i Windows too. The solution (for windows) was to use the no_ip_restrict patch from fyyre's. In wine with that file i get "segmentation fault". I think cose the patch was named "d3dx9_38.dll" wine doesn't like it.

Sorry for the delay, the following link is the L10N directory patcher. You have to edit the config options for AION locale (EU_ENU,NA_ENU etc) and location of the l10n version.ini (find ./L10N/ -name "version.ini"). If you want you can add it to the launcher.sh script for a full patcher.

This game runs fine once patched with the mouse patch,
until after an hour the mouse disappears, the quests start flickering, and any shadows and spells go grey.
The html engine seems to crash, so npc quests can no longer be viewed from npc's. and you can no longer teleport to another area, once this but starts up.

also when leaving a room the textures that are not in front of you disappear (go black).

but other than that the game is perfect.

Today I tested wine-1.1.33 and saw the mouse/bug was fixed, so I doesn't need the patch anymore.

got it working except for mouse glitch
by NO IDONT on Saturday November 14th 2009, 5:48
Ubuntu 9.04 64bit using nvidia drivers from the nvidia site (Make sure to install the 32bit opengl drivers) wine 1.0.1
I'm dual boot installed the downloaded client (not from steam was in beta). I just copied the files over from the NTFS mount.
When I first ran it I got a CryPhsyics.dll couldn't be loaded. The file limit mod in the how to fixed that.
Then it bombed out with some sort of MM_Drv error wich I realized was probably my nasty creative labs proprietary driver (have to bounce between OSS and ALSA wichever the card is in the mood for) so I switched the audio to OSS and it came up.
After that I loaded it up (went to windows and used netstat to verify the auth server ip and port, can't be too careful).
I have the common problem of not being able to full screen because of dual screens and the mouse is yes, jittery plus it seems the pointer is more in the middle of the mouse arrow than at the tip.

Comments on performance, sound and graphics
by Kostas on Friday November 13th 2009, 6:02
The mouse patch below worked for me sweetly. It should be mentioned in the HOW-TO.

The performance issue was somehow resolved for me by running the game in fullscreen mode. Other than that, I find the game a bit more responsive than in Windows! (I suspect this has more to do with lag and the net rather than the game itself, since my whole network/internet performance is better in Ubuntu).

I also noticed that the sound had more intense left-right balance, more intense stereophony. I am using Jack for my WINE sound. Since I upgraded to 1.1.32, I cannot change my wine audio driver and its stuck there. I don't mind because ALSA was barely working in my wine configuration.

The only thing that bugs me just a little now, is the lack of antialiasing in the fonts over the characters ;) The game runs smoothly. Big thanks to everyone who supplied us all the necessary info and how-tos to make this possible!

Performance.
by Carl Constant de Flon on Monday November 9th 2009, 18:57
Using the mouse patch supplied an an earlier thread and following the how-to posted, Aion is now running beautifully.
However the only issue is the performance.
it doesn't matter how I put the slides, run in full screen or windowed or how I adjust the settings in any way, it is still generally crappy, low FPS, seldom goes over 40, and it stutters and lags whenever I swing the camera around.
The machine I'm running on has 4 GB of memory, GeForce GTS 250 and a quad core Intel processor. It should thus be more than enough, when booted in to Windows (Yes I know I feel horrible about having to keep a windows copy as well, but it's all due to Aion so...) I get some ~100 FPS at least.
I'm running Ubuntu Karmic and recompiled wine with the patch mentioned earlier. If anybody's got any tips at all on how to raise the FPS, even slightly they would be more than welcome.

Best regards

Performance Issues
by Gareth on Monday November 9th 2009, 3:48
Hi all,

I have a weird scenario. I have two machines, a laptop with a mobile ATI graphics card and Desktop machine with a MUCH better ATI graphics card (ATI I know are not the best for Linux but hey :P ).

The weird situation is that when I run Aion on my laptop with the inferior graphics card, I get some pretty good performance. It runs about as well on Ubuntu as it does on Windows 7.

My desktop machine however, with the better graphics card, is so sluggish in Ubuntu its unplayable. I was wondering if there were any known hacks to improve graphics performance for Aion that I can try on my Desktop machine?

ATI graphic card

Hi,

is the game playable for anyone with any ATI graphic driver? I am getting 10fps with Core2/4850. In Windows around 100FPS. Nvidia cards seem to be working ok, i.e. giving proper fps.

Can somebody advise some config change that would resolve the ATI problem?

Thanks,

Chat Channels Missing
by Iloru on Friday November 6th 2009, 9:04
Forgive any lack of information here, as I'm a novice linux / wine user and I am not sure what you would need to know.

I've trudged my way through installing the game, I've recompiled to add that mouse patch listed below (Thank you so much! It worked perfectly for me!), and now I'm at a loss. I am unable to see chat channels.

Ever since the last patch (1.5.0.10? The one where chat was restricted to level 10+), I haven't been able to see the chat channels. They aren't turned off, I just never get logged into them. I know this was a problem for some Windows users, as my Windows install also had this problem, but I can't seem to find a way to fix it. I've tried fixing it Windows side and copying it over, to no avail, and I've tried using the launcher.sh script (also listed below) to try to repatch or repair and that also didn't work.

Does anyone else have this problem, or is this something that has an easy fix that I'm simply missing?

Ati drivers are really really bad. I couldn't get the game to work properly on neither Radeon X850XT PE (open source drivers) not Radeon 5850 (closed source drivers)

Nvidia's are better, but still far from perfect.

trouble with launch
by Bickel Jacqueline on Thursday November 5th 2009, 23:33
I followed the instructions for mac users.
Using MacPorts and Porticus for wine installs.

In terminal I enter:
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/NCsoft/Aion/b in32/aion.exe -ip:206.127.153.247 -port:2106 -cc:1 -noauthgg -lang:enu -noweb

then I get the follow message:
wine: cannot find '/Users/jacquelinebickel/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/NCsoft/Aion/b?in32/aion.exe'

The files does exist I have verified.
I can Shift+Cmd+G and verify the ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/ ==>> this is where I placed my NCsoft folder, I copied from bootcamp from my install.
I placed the aion.exe in the bin32 folder

limit maxfiles to 8122 and confirmed:
I verified ulimit -n
8192

I am on a MacBookPro pre 2006 running Snow Leopard

I am not sure why I cannot launch.


Any suggestions????

I am learning wine and eager to learn.

My nephew would love to start play the game soon, we as time goes on.


I appreciate any help you can give.

ATI has bugs?
by Nimec on Thursday November 5th 2009, 16:21
It appears everyone who says the game is running fine is using an Nvidia based video card? Can anyone with an ATI card confirm the same? I am using an ATI Radeon 4890 1GB and particle effects to not render properly (colored solid squares) and my framerate hovers around 10-20.

Jittery Camera
by Karl Davenport on Sunday November 1st 2009, 13:17
Camera movement was fine in Ubuntu 9.04 in wine 1.1.30-1.1.32. Tested with wine(s) from PlayOnLinux and with Ubuntu's packages without PlayOnLinux. No obvious differences in gameplay with any of the wine versions, with or without PlayOnLinux.

Upgraded to 9.10 and its almost impossible to rotate the camera with the mouse. Tested with 1.1.30 in PlayOnLinux and with 1.1.32 from the official repositories.

No other changes were made.

Patch for jittery mouse issues
by JesusFreke on Saturday October 31st 2009, 5:29
Yes! I've figured out how to solve the jittery mouse issue. The following patch should do the trick. With this change, the mouse behaves exactly as expected. No jitteriness, and no jumping when you start the right-click drag near the top or bottom of the screen.

Here's the patch, it is against the 1.1.32 source

pastebin.com/m24a6e473

I'll submit it to the wine "powers that be" and try to get it included in the next version. But for now, you'll have to patch and rebuild wine.

Stupid error... im doing something wrong.
by Lluis on Thursday October 29th 2009, 6:09
I have done all the instalation thing on VirtualBox, had the problem with permisions so instaled on virtual hard drive of VirtualBox then updated, and finally passed to .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/

Then when I run wine... I recieve this

$ cd bio/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/AionEU/
$ wine bin32/AION.bin -ip:206.127.147.28 -port:2106 -cc:2 -noauthgg -lang:enu -noweb

wine: could not load L"C:\\Program Files\\AionEU\\bin32\\AION.bin": Module not found

What happen?

I thought that was an error with my wine installation so I had done this:

$ apt-get remove --purge wine
*Removed de .wine folder.
$ apt-get install wine
$ winecfg (to create virtual drive)
$ wget www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
$ chmod 766 ./winetricks && sudo mv ./winetricks /usr/local/bin
$ winetricks d3dx9 vcrun2005 dotnet20

Then another time try to exec Aion... and samething >(


$ cd bio/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/AionEU/
$ wine bin32/AION.bin -ip:206.127.147.28 -port:2106 -cc:2 -noauthgg -lang:enu -noweb

wine: could not load L"C:\\Program Files\\AionEU\\bin32\\AION.bin": Module not found

Authentication Server
by traenol on Tuesday October 27th 2009, 13:22
Tried following the steps listed above, but every time I go to log in I get the error 'Could not connect to the Authentication Server'

I know it is not an actual connection issue, as I have 3 computers on the same network, and only this one machine gets this error.

a putty session from wine will allow me to connect to the server through the port, but i'm not sure how useful that is, considering the response is garbage characters.

Running Ubuntu 9.04, Wine v. 1.0.1, can provide any other information needed. Any thoughts on what might be causing the failing connectivity to the server?

Been playing it a bit with wine 1.1.32 using the above guide, runs fairly well and looks nice. Only problem I noticed is that after a while I no longer see the cursor, after that its a few minutes till it crashes. Not sure if the cursor vanishing is time related or something else.

I got a Debian squeeze 64 bits, with latest wine, and when I launch the game, after following instructions above, it ends with :

Slackware 13.0 wine 1.1.31
by jeremy crum on Tuesday October 20th 2009, 1:30
Got the game to load following step 1-4 of the how-to

1. Tem­porary solution for installing/patching:
This was pretty straight forward once I allocated enough drive space for the windows drive in virtual box and figure out how to mount a linux folder as a shared folder in windows.

2. To make the game run in wine you have to install winetricks:
This wasn't clear to me at first and I only ran the command at the winetricks wiki sh winetricks corefonts vcrun6
But had to run winetricks for each one ./winetricks d3dx9 vcrun2005 dotnet20

3. The game opens large amount of file descriptors, therefore you must raise the security limit for your user:
This through me off since slackware doens't have /etc/security/limits.conf
So I just read the man limits and what you do is create a file /etc/limits and the entry for your user would be
yourusername N8192

4. Run the game:
wine bin32\aion.bin -ip:206.127.153.247 -port:2106 -cc:1 -noauthgg -lang:enu -noweb­
After all that the game loaded and brought me to the login screen.

Now I dont have an account yet so I dont know how the game will run but I think its progress. I can update when I make account if anyone wants.

Thanks for this how-to it helped alot!

Group frame rate
by Camden Jansen on Sunday October 18th 2009, 13:51
Hey all,

I'm very happy with how well Aion works this early in the release. I'm getting constant 45 fps while solo and the frame rate in cities is around 30. The random crashes and the mouse jittering is annoying but workable. I am using Fedora 11.

However! There is 1 bug that annoys me to no end. Whenever I am in a group... no matter the size, my fps drops down to 2-3 in combat. Being in a group is the thing that is dropping my fps. I tested this with a friend of mine. I would attack a mob and my friend would come in (ungrouped) and help. no fps drop. I invited him to a group. I went to go attack the mob. The moment he started casting my fps skydives to 4.

Any ideas?

I couldnt find anyone who had come across this issue. I can get Aion to run without any issues starting up, but when I try to log in it always says no authorization servers available. I can reboot into windows and play no issues. I can even play off my external hdd on any PC i have tried it in no issues. All using the same files. A friend of mine who wanted to try Ubuntu asked me to install it and Aion on his system. I installed it on his system using the same files as mine we have an identical system, and it works perfectly on his system. Any Ideas?

After installing by using a Windows VirtualBox setup into my wine directory, I try launching and get the Aion logo and then an error saying:

"CryEngine Error

CRITICAL ERROR: Error loading DLL: XRenderD3D9.dll."

and the console shows:

"fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.VC80.CRT" (8.0.50608.0)"

I've done the winetricks installs as outlined so not sure what's up.

Crash output
by Mike Grathwohl on Thursday October 15th 2009, 16:32
As I've written before, aion works for me but is a bit crashy. Sometime I can be on for a couple hours, other times it will crash in 5 minutes. Here's what the regular output says:

wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x00000000 at address 0x10005180 (thread 003d), starting debugger...
fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.VC80.MFCLOC" (8.0.50608.0)
fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.VC80.MFCLOC" (8.0.50608.0)

There's some interesting info about this here: social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/vcgeneral/thread/3b69bdfc-a1cf-4af8-a2cc-d5c7ba362fdb/

I tried changing the manifest XML file to reflect the proper version number but that didn't help.

I tried using WINEDEBUG=+relay but there was too much output, even writing it to a file, and aion would crash before it even loaded. WINEDEBUG=fixme-all,warn+all,err+all-relay was able to give me some output without crashing, this is the more detailed info (truncated): pastebin.com/f5d13d73e

It appears to be a MSVCR80.DLL error. I created an override for it and it *seems* to be working, I ran it for a handul of hours last night with no crashes. It could have been just luck though. Ignore the error for sendlogclient.exe, that usually works and is just the program that asks you if you want to send crash data to NCSoft.

Any other ideas as to what might be causing this crash? Other than the seldom mouse bug, this is the only problem I've been having.

Installing the game
by Benoit Smith on Monday October 12th 2009, 19:02
Greetings,

Is the game supposed to be installed by a non-administrator ?

I'm stuck in the 1st step of the above How-To. I defined the .wine directory as a shared folder in a virtualized WinXP, and tried to install the game in it. The setup process copied the files as expected, but in the end, I got the following InstallShield message that spelled failure for my try :

"Can't guarantee the write rights in this directory. Please ensure that you launch the setup as an administrator. Setup will now exit."

Any enlightenment about this problem will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance !

Best regard,

Mouse Bug
by Matthew Swaringen on Monday October 12th 2009, 18:46
There was word in a prior test that the mouse bug is not something everyone is experiencing, but I have not seen evidence to substantiate that claim. Given that this is probably the most important bug affecting playability even on high end machines (along with being quite "stuttery" even with reasonable framerates on i7 based hardware) I am asking for some assistance on this.

Especially if you are not having this bug please submit a test and post here to clarify some basic details about your system and whether you are using additional modifications or any of the "useful registry keys" etc.

I've tried many of these on my system without effect, and I gather that everyone has this issue post 1.5.0.7. I believe the issue probably came into play with the most recent patches that added inverted mouse camera support. This is the most logical case for the bug.

Thus far I have also attempted using the binaries and dlls in a 1.5.0.8 version of the game and this did not fix the problem, hence my belief that 1.5.0.7 was probably the last patch that worked reasonably well. None of the patch notes officially say this option was added, but I recall discussion that it was not in the game before and I can see the option in the most 1.5.0.9.

Unfortunately I don't have a previous system build now, but I will see if I can find a way to patch to 1.5.0.7

Launcher script and patcher to 1.5.0.9

I modified the patcher script I used before to be able to recognize wrong case patches and to launch the game.
Please read my previous comment "Patching from 1.5.0.6" about the requirements and the dangers. This script is pre-alpha quality, I tested it on my setup and it works but I cannot guarantee it's not going to delete your whole disk.

Socket creation error (from Aion)
by Michael on Monday October 5th 2009, 9:39
Hi there,

I've followed all the instructions correctly. I am using the command:

wine ./aion.exe -ip:206.127.153.247 -port:2106 -cc:1 -noauthgg -lang:enu -noweb

I get to the Aion login screen and enter my details, then Aion itself brings up an error (before exiting): "Socket creation error". There is nothing running on the ports Aion uses on my system. I am not sure why it can't create the socket! :/

Here's a screenshot of the error: img246.imageshack.us/img246/9792/socketerror.jpg

Any ideas anyone? It's frustrating to get so close to having the game running!

Thanks, hope someone can help. :-)

Mouse issue and steam question.
by Edward D. on Monday October 5th 2009, 8:12
I've gotten Aion to install successfully via installing in a virtual box and transferring the files to my Ubuntu 9.10 installation. Everything works great except I have a strange mouse issue. Whenever I attempt to look with the left or right mouse click the camera gets very jittery as if it's trying to return to the home position behind the character. It's pretty annoying as I can't look around easily without using my A and D keys.

Also, has anyone tried installing via Steam? I'm not sure if Steam updates the game without needing the NCSoft updater.

Ubuntu 9.10 -32bit Karmic beta!!!
by roberth on Sunday October 4th 2009, 2:54
Aion works almost perfectly with the nvidia beta drivers i upgraded from jaunty and actually for some reason got past the ncsoft screen
the game launched fine and the ncsoft launcher loaded as well

i did notice, messing with the graphic's options messes up the game play a bit,

when using the mouse to drag your character to move, the mouse doesn't work right when holding down both buttons. I was using a blue tooth mouse so I actually don't know if that was the reason. but no other problems, mouse worked fine to pick stuff up and click the skill bars and etc. just cant hold down w and run with the mouse...bummer you just have to use the keys to run around.

Karmic beta, it works!!!!

Vote!
by Stef on Saturday October 3rd 2009, 15:00
As said in the note above we are just 4 maintainers, which one of them is not very active lately, and we are using : Me - Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope, Mathew - Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit Karmic Koala and Oskar - Mac OSX Snow Leopard! We cannot make Aion work with so few people, and even if we do, it'll probably be only for our operating system! So please VOTE on the upper left part of the application to make Wine Developers help with this! If you vote and contribute doing tests aion will work in no time! The community does all the job so please help :D

Best Regards,
Stef

pbuffer instead of fbo seems to relieve stuttering a bit
by Matthew Swaringen on Friday October 2nd 2009, 21:25
Thus far this is the only useful key I've found. Using offscreenrendering mode set to pbuffer I haven't gained much in fps but the stuttering is reduced. I also made sure to manually add my VideoMemorySize as well.

The game is a bit more playable now but there are some indoor areas with graphical glitches (blackouts).

I will be testing the game with a marginally upgraded system soon (core i7) and if it's at all cpu bound I'll be sure to post, at least that may help those willing to spend more to play the game in Linux (not that you'd do it just for this game, I wouldn't have gone that far :P )

Please Help!
by Stef on Friday October 2nd 2009, 8:40
If you get Aion to work an any operating system with wine, please submit the test and put on the additional comments how did you get the game to work! Any operating system test it's appreciated, but please, if there are already tests with your same operating system, same wine version, same Aion version and same things done and doesn't work, don't post it! We really appreciate your help and we would like to get this game working with wine on as many OS's we can!

Regards,
Stef

Doesn't work in K/X/Ubuntu or another Linux.
by Oskar Gargas on Thursday October 1st 2009, 16:34
If so please post in this thread your PC specification, your installed drivers and installed applications which may have influence on X11 or graphic drivers. Also please say hat version of wine and with what winetricks you are using.

And remember. Before posting anything update your software and drivers to newest stable version.

Thank you, this will help to clean up here and isolate what is making this bugs.

Aion(1024) Faild to initialize the game
by Sebastian on Wednesday September 30th 2009, 18:14
Hello,

when I try to start Aion I alway get this error

Aion(1024)
Failed to initilaize the game.

I googled this error, and I found only following solution:
Start the launcher -> choose Aion -> Settings -> language settings -> uncheck every language except for "English" -> check game that "Game start with" is also set to english

As it is impossibel to start the laucher, as far as i know, i didnt have the opportunity to solve my problem this way.

I have tried a lot of combinations of the paramerts to AION.bin.

Additional info:
Gentoo linux 2.6.30-gentoo-r6
wine 1.1.29
System language: german


Sorry for any errors, its late, and my english is not the best. ^^

After lunching Aion it shows error box saying that it can't open oreans.vxd driver.
In terminal it leaves this output:

Maybe somebody knows what that means and with what it can be related.

Aion starter executable
by Oskar Gargas on Sunday September 27th 2009, 12:30
I've compiled to exe bat files to start Aion.
You can download it here.
www.mediafire.com/?2idakmmengj

After download put it to your main Aion folder (c_drive/program files/ncsoft/Aion -default) and run from that.

in the zip there are 2 files.
StartAionEU.exe - to playing on EU servers
StartAionNA.exe - to playing on NA servers

this files are compiled from this batch scripts:
> for EU:
>> start bin32\aion.bin -ip:206.127.147.28 -port:2106 -cc:2 -noauthgg -lang:enu -noweb
>> GOTO end
>> :end
>> ping localhost -n 5 > nul
>> EXIT

> for NA:
>> start bin32\aion.bin -ip:206.127.153.247 -port:2106 -cc:1 -noauthgg -lang:enu -noweb
>> GOTO end
>> :end
>> ping localhost -n 5 > nul
>> EXIT

If you find it helpful please make a pinned tip from that and write my name under that.

Solving the slowness problem
by Matthew Swaringen on Sunday September 27th 2009, 0:53
Ok, so the game plays as I mentioned in my recent test results. What it doesn't do is play with very good framerates.

I'm curious if all these messages might be the reason..
fixme:d3d:dumpResources Leftover resource 0x55aec380 with type 1,WINED3DRTYPE_SURFACE
fixme:d3d:dumpResources Leftover resource 0x78761ab0 with type 3,WINED3DRTYPE_TEXTURE
I seem them appear throughout the terminal output while the game was running. It looks like these appear more than once a second.

When exiting the game I get...
err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0xe83f07d
err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0xe83f07d
*** glibc detected *** AION.bin: corrupted double-linked list: 0x7daf2d70 ***

Get it working under Mac OS X
by Oskar Gargas on Saturday September 26th 2009, 12:16
Hi,
I'm using Mac OS X 10.6 and custom build of wine. I've managed to run almost any Wine capable app, but here Aion needs that changes to run

>> 3. The game opens large amount of file descriptors, therefore you
>> must raise the securty limit for your user:
>>
>> As root add lines to /etc/security/limits.conf:
>> yourusername soft nofile 8192
>> yourusername hard nofile 8192
>>
>> And replace youruser

On Mac in /etc/security/ there is no limits.conf
Maybe somebody here will know what and where I may try to change to get similar result to those changes under Mac.

Patching Aion to 1.5.0.7
by inf loop on Friday September 25th 2009, 12:25
This is a highly experimental script that I put together in an hour for patching Aion. Use at your own risk. You are free to improve it/change it. It is not finished, but it works at my setup. Put it on the Aion base dir (no spaces on the aion install path plz), old files are not removed but given an .old extension. Do not use it if you do not know anything about shell scripts, take backups etc etc

Requirements xdelta, rar, wget

Text is in Korean
by Andy on Thursday September 24th 2009, 13:16
Hi. I was able to install and run the client using the instructions everyone has posted here, but when I get to the login screen all the button labels are in Korean. I figured out through trial and error which button was for settings, and all the labels on the settings window are in Korean as well. When I run the game from my Windows partition everything is fine. I already tried installing the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package and it made no difference. I am using -lang:enu just like in the examples people have posted here. I am out of ideas as to how to change the language. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Updating without Windows
by Manu on Wednesday September 23rd 2009, 4:22
I have the 1.5.0.1 Version installed, but I can't update to version 1.5.0.6 so I can't play.
Do I realy have to download the whole game again so I have the current Version? I already have the patches, but every "tutorial" tells me to start the Launcher for an Update ....

The program is unavailable in your country
by Matthew Swaringen on Tuesday September 22nd 2009, 19:47
Ok, I tried your guide and first I did so in Karmic, then in Jaunty because it looked like I was having an openGL error that could be due to new X and such. In any case, now I get "The program is unavailable in your country" errors on attempting to launch the application directly from the command line, which is completely bogus, and must be ... a locale issue?

I hate the locale setup immensely, but switched everything over to en_US that I could find (since Ubuntu had set me up as en_CA probably due to it's screwed up lack of US CST selection) and it still won't let me launch for this reason. I did remove .wine after the switch so I .. hopefully should have everything set.

I just checked the HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Control Panel, International key and it shows everything set to United States/etc.

I don't get how the game can believe I'm somewhere else except form registry or my IP though, and I know my IP is fine as it works fine in windows... it's so odd.
