Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation via automatic installer (potbsinstall.exe).
  • Everything in-game: sound, video, avatar and ship combat. Performance is great even with multiple game windows open at the same time.

What does not

The installer (potbsinstall.exe) throws insufficient privileges error and crashes.


  • Make the file potbsinstall.exe readable, writable and executable for everyone (by running for instance "sudo +rwx potbsinstall.exe").
  • If the installer crashes run it again.
  • Alternatively the game files can be downloaded from https://cdn.visiononlinegames.... without using the installer. In this case Physx needs to be installed using nvphysx.exe that comes with the game files (the version that can be installed using winetricks does not work).

What was not tested

Roberts and Test servers.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

  • Winetrciks installed: vcrun2008, dotnet35sp1, d3dx9.
  • 4gb_patch was applied to the file PotBS.exe to avoid an out of memory error during the startup of the game. It can be applied by executing the command "wine 4gb_patch.exe PotBS.exe" in a terminal (with both files being in the same directory). This has to be done every time a new version of PotBS.exe is downloaded.
  • The game can be launched by running PotBS.exe or potbsinstall.exe (the installer / updater).
