­This game requires IE7+ to be installed for the Launcher to function.  

­­cd ~/.wine
chmod +x winetricks­
winetricks ie8 

If walking forward causes your character to roll you will need to enable a work around in the console before playing the game and once finished disable the work around.  This is a bug in X that has been fixed so newer distributions will not have this issue. 

Before playing: 

xset r off

After playing: 

xset r on

­In general you will want to play STO using the low graphics option in the profile selector that comes up when the game loads.  If you have very recent hardware you will be able to play using the higher graphics option. 

Any other bugs you find should be reported!

Just a black screen forever
by Kenneth on Sunday September 4th 2016, 10:17
I have tried with...

Wine 1.6.2, 1.7.43, and 1.9, and have been careful to use 32 bit versions of all selected. I've installed IE8 and DirectX 9 in every instance as well. I have used the standalone installer ( linked on PlayonLinux site ), I have used Steam to install it, I have used PlayonLinux to install it, etc. It all ends up the same...

After pressing engage, GameClient.exe launches and shows nothing but a black screen. No mention of anything loading, just a black screen, that if left for hours stays a black screen and never does anything.

On Ubuntu 14.04.5 using 3.13.0-93-generic, a Nvidia GeForce 7950 GT and NVidia 173 drivers ( the recent 304 ones do not work well with this card and this kernel ).

Does anyone have Step by Step instructions on how to play STO on Mac using wine. I am lost. I really want to run this game on my Mac but i can not figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Loading Hang
by Albert Sacks on Thursday July 14th 2016, 14:19
I can't seem to get this to load on 1.9.14 with or without the -d3d9 command line option. The launcher works fine, but it freezes up about 5% through the loading bar on the screen with the big "Cryptic" logo.

I'm using El Capitan 10.11.5.

Slow loading
by CharlieL on Saturday July 9th 2016, 11:48
Due to slow loading times with dx9 overides, a workaround is to use the switch -d3d9 in the command line for the launcher (Launcher > Options > Command line)

Game doesn't fully shut down after exit.
by Steve on Tuesday June 14th 2016, 12:35
When playing the game for any length of time, I will exit and need to head to my System Monitor to kill the GameClient.exe process. Wine doesn't seem to handle the exit properly.

The big problem is that it usually takes just under 2 gigs of RAM, and will slow my computer down otherwise. It's a minor inconvenience to have to continually do this, but any suggestions on an automatic kill script?

This has been happening for at least six months.

Mesa 11.2
by Anni on Friday April 15th 2016, 6:19
After my mesa was upgraded from 11.1 to 11.2, STO freezes before loading the character selection screen. (I use PCLinuxOS). It seems it can't handle 3D content any more.

Anybody else encountered this problem?

Input delay when running on a virtual desktop
by HeavyHDx on Thursday March 31st 2016, 5:08
I'm experiencing severe input delay when I'm running the game on a virtual desktop. Already found a workaround, just add this to the options in the launcher:

-enablerawinputsupport 0

steam version
by joseph ricktor on Sunday February 7th 2016, 17:13
i think that the only way to play this game on a mac or linux is through steam due to the aforementioned arc crash

im in the midst of testing in now on 1.9.2 (staging)

by Jason Smith on Sunday January 17th 2016, 6:36
I finally was able to install STO using the Steam Client (For Windows), however the game now crashes on the STO: New Dawn splash screen, ugh!

Nothing happens when I click the icon
by Me on Sunday January 10th 2016, 15:01
STO is installed on my windows 7 drive. I'm using wine 1.9.1 on linux mint 17.3. When I click on the executable, I get the spinning circle for awhile, then nothing.

When I use the terminal and type "wine Star\ Trek\ Online.exe"
I get the following:
wine client error:0: version mismatch 447/492.
Your wineserver binary was not upgraded correctly,
or you have an older one somewhere in your PATH.
Or maybe the wrong wineserver is still running?

I could really use some help.

The "Garbage" ratings given to this game are entierly false and only given due to a lack of patients!

On the first start-up after upgrading wine to 1.7.50+, the game will take extremely long to load (upwards of 45mins in some cases). Once the game finally does load, you will return to your normal load times.

This can be partially alleviated by setting "d3dx11_36" "d3dx11_42" and "d3dx11" to "DISABLED" manually in winecfg, and by setting the windows version to XP. This will result in a 15-20minute inital loading time, afterwards your load times will resume their normal duration.

This is due to the new D3DX11 implementation being worked into WINE (starting with 1.7.50), the game recognizes that new D3D capabilities are available and re 'tests' the system to see what it can handle. Due to the d3dx11 implementation being incomplete it runs into alot of internal errors, freezes and the like in the loading process. Eventually it will default itself back to DX9 and you will continue on your merry way without having to run through all those again on subsequent startups.

Just have patients, the game works perfectly fine.

Will not exit
by Steven Wilson on Monday February 2nd 2015, 3:05
I just brought up the STO menu and selected exit and it just stopped and the mouse pointer disappeared. I had to bring up the skull and cross bones to kill it. [CTRL] + [ALT] + [ESC]. I still get the buffer underruns about 97% of the time!

Sound problems
by Steven Wilson on Sunday February 1st 2015, 18:45
All of a sudden - wine 1.7.35 - STO gets lots of sound issues that sound like buffer underuns in ALSA. I have to quit STO and re log. This happens most of the time while doing an episode.

Delta Rising doesn't work
by Atontao on Saturday November 8th 2014, 8:02

After the Delta Rising expansion, Star Trek Online stopped to work under linux. I can't get past the Loading... screen after showing the Delta Rising logo.

If I check Task Manager, game client is not responding.

I can change this a bit, switching the D3Dcompiler_42.dll from native to internal, but then I get like 400+ shader error on a log file and the game finally works, resets all the grafics sets and the only thing I can see is the GUI, all 3D objects aren't there, just a background with red X's on it.

On my XP the game works, tho it gets 3 or 4 shader errors. My GFX card is an Nvidia GeForce 210 and I use Ubuntu 12.04. Updated the propietary drivers to the lastest I found and I play holodeck.

I get asked for account verification (one-time code) every time I play.

STO version:

My executable
cd /media/{home_drive_name}/{ntfs_secondary_hard_drive}/games/startrekonline/Star\ Trek\ Online_en
WINEPREFIX=/home/{home_drive_name}/.wine_sto setarch i386 -3 -L -B -R wine Star\ Trek\ Online.exe
