PartyGaming does not start
by Olivier on Wednesday November 18th 2009, 6:40
When I try to start the application after the installation I get the following messages:
C:\Program Files\PartyGaming>fixme:mixer:ALSA_MixerInit No master control found on HDA ATI HDMI, disabling mixer

I installed party poker on wine. It all seemed fine and I was able to money play with no problems (except occasional internet connection issues). However after a couple of weeks, my computer has starting making the "out of time" buzzing at random. It now does this (every half hour or so) even when the machine is turned off (but plugged in), and whilst on - even if the program is not running!
playable at last

wine .26 and current pp client build 106 is playable
bets can be made, amounts resized, chips and cards seen, the interface is a touch buggy, hard to read stack in certain positions and the lobby doesnt seem to come back up when poker table closed, a game can be had however they have also released a web based java client, which might be a better idea ;)
Can only min bet with newest version
by Jeff Angelini on Friday June 9th 2006, 20:07
I have installed the latest version of Party Poker (version 94/95, it said) and whenever I try to bet, I can only bet the minimum. For example, at .10/.25, I can only raise to .50; or, if someone, for instance, bets 1, I can only raise to 2 (obviously, this is not limit . . .).
I am running wine 0.9.10 and the latest Party Poker that came out a couple of days ago. I've tried reinstalling, installing a different version of wine, creating a new .wine directory and starting completely over. Still no dice.
PartyPoker 1.2 build 92

PartyPoker released a new version today which they claim will make playing tournaments more exciting. When you lauch PartyPoker you will receive a message box indicating that you are running an old version of PartyPoker and must upgrade. When I clicked the ok button a dialog box appeared showing me the upgrade status with the titlebar indicating it was connecting but after several attempts it never seemed to connect. So here is what I had to do.
Dealing Sound Stuck in a Loop
by Tom on Sunday March 5th 2006, 12:55
In the Gentoo testing results it was noted that "After a few hours, the dealing sound got stuck in a loop and kept playing until I quit the program." I was also experiencing this problem in SUSE Linux 10 in all versions of Wine from v0.9.5 to the current version v0.9.9. When I ran winecfg and clicked on the audio tab I received an error message indicating "There is no audio driver currently specified in the registry". All I needed to do to solve the looping dealing sound on my machine was uncheck the default OSS Driver and check it again, apply the change and click ok and I haven't experienced the looping dealing sound since.
This version installed fine for me but before deciding to use this version I also tested 126.96.36.199 and 1.7.7 but both versions failed to install due to "The Mozilla Control was unable to detect where your Mozilla Layout Libraries may be found." I couldn't find these libraries on my machine even when I installed the Windoze version of Firefox using Wine.
As I said v1.6 installed clean so I proceeded to install PartyPoker. After the install was complete, PartyPoker launched just fine without getting the blank window that was mentioned in an earlier post due to the missing ActiveX controls.
