Selected Test Results

What works

Updater works, and game client runs, albeit rather slow (5fps). ConanPatcher button's slightly off (you have to click just above for them to register your click)

What does not

Plenty of oddities in0game like seeing NPC's through walls (would be considered a cheat I presume, despite not being all that useful in an MMO?) and PC's being artifacted.


What was not tested

Didn't install (as posts say it works) as ran off local NTFS partition, and didn't get to try much as frame rate was abysmal. Used a L80 Dark Templar in Old Tarantia.

HowTo / Notes


Since there hasn't been enough testing I suggest you for the time being to do these steps in order to produce results.

1) Go with a terminal to the destination where Age of Conan has been installed . (Update: probably not necessary in 1.31) eg. cd "/home/maniac/.wine/ drive_c/Program Files/Funcom/Age of Conan/" and so on

2) wine ConanPatcher.exe If you want to skip the Launcher, check Katsu Akimoto 's post below in the comments... of course dont forget u have to update the client :P ; Not Tested with wine

If you get errors about DirectX when the patcher starts , download and install it

Update Note: You HAVE to use the directx dlls to native after last tests. Note sure which dll as i used the winetricks script to set all the dlls to native (winetricks d3dx9)

Same procedure with my desktop Linux PC. I got a new prefix tried it without any modification and it couldn't find DirectX in the system. So i i did $ winetricks directx then $ winetricks d3dx9.

Waiting for new test data by users in order to find bugs. Future test includes installing the game and running it , whereas as now running it from the windows partition
