Additional Comments

The time has come that EuroGunZ admins have added an anti-hack system. This is probably the cause of this "Start Error".

HowTo / Notes

EUROGUNZ FOR PLAYING GUNZ IN LINUX: THE END
EuroGunz admin recently added a dll to his server to prevent people from playing EuroGunZ in a virtual machine. This is completely stupid as I don't understand how we could hurt the server by playing in a VM and this is greatly annoying for the linux GunZ players community as VM's were a new possibility of trying to play GunZ in Linux, raising hope in our hearts again. I had already mailed him long before to explain him it was important for us not to add an anti-hack system to his server but he didn't even answer to me and added the anti-hack feature some weeks later as he had planned to. Now, that new dll is making us unable to play GunZ in VM's and worse, wine is also considered as a VM by this new "gunzprotect" system. I think this is clear enough. Vitor, EuroGunZ admin, does not want us on his server and will, by all means, prevent us from playing on it. Forget EuroGunZ now and forever. Do not even reboot on Windows to play it because EuroGunZ launcher contains a trojan since the first releases but as it was unharmful for wine, it is not the case for a real Windows system. All this is only reliable to EuroGunZ server. Other private servers or even the official server are not to take in this state of mind. Anyway, I still haven't found a working private server to play on trough wine. At the moment of this writing (June 2, 2009), your best chance to play GunZ under Linux is to use a Virtual Machine and a Windows Guest but it's not fast enough to let you play correctly, perhaps if you have a very powerful gaming pc but I don't have any so I can't test it. Maybe the future will give us better DirectX 9 performances in VM and GunZ would be some kind of playable, let's hope...
WARNING

We got it working with versions 6 and 7.1 of EuroGunZ launcher. You must have the last version of the launcher to be able to connect to the server.

Perhaps, if they make changes to the server or to the launcher, we could not get it working anymore.

On the 24 of August 2008, EuroGunZ was playable under Linux.
