Additional Comments

No dll overrides, no winetricks needed in 3.0.2. 32-bit or 64-bit prefix works. Steam installed through Valve's SteamSetup.exe.

DX11 does not work with wine 3.0.2 (latest DXVK needs wine 3.10 at least). You can either set the launch options to "AvP.exe" or replace
AvP_DX11.exe with AvP.exe in the games install folder to not start the DX11 version at all. Alt tabbing has issues for me, which I could work around
with a virtual desktop.

In newer versions of wine it seems to work with DXVK, but I have audio issues. Couldn't get it to work reliably with Valve's proton (wine 3.7 atm) yet.

You can run the dedicated server also with wine, which runs perfect too. See this gist for info: https://gist.github.com/Corben...

"Posible" solution
by David Gámiz Jiménez on Sunday October 26th 2014, 16:20
I will confirm that the Game Overlay is off.

After I increase the quality of the sample pulse to server: 24bit and 48.000hz

And reinstalling the whole game. I had to download 15GB again.

And also cambe version of Windows XP.

And I played the first level once. Then the following levels not failure.

And the problem has not recurred.

Some graphic engine error. Glitches in textures, lowering the quality of textures and effects, and I was corrected by restarting.

Thank you.

Hello people,

I can play without problems, until I left the game and try load last game saved, in the moment to end loading, sound a short fx sound and the game crash. You try play with marine campaign? You know this issue or something solution?

Running AvP Multiplayer is NOT obvious!
by s1w on Thursday September 19th 2013, 8:23
Attention: For ALL players, who are convinced that are cursed, and will not finally make AvP 2010 Multiplayer run.

I have trided 5 differend versions: AvP 2010 SKIDROW (about 15 GB package); [R.G. Mechanics] Aliens vs Predator (~6,1 GB); AvP MultiPlayer 1.2.17 Patch MadwiggyNLD (~55 MB); and Free AvP GreenLuna tutorial on both SKIDROW and R.G Mechanics versions ------ all of them had problems to unlock Ranked and Player Match options ingame or run game at all.

But DO NOT abandon your Hopes! I finnaly after all night of tryings have make it RUN.

www.tunngle.net/wiki/Network:Aliens_vs_Predator_2010

^this is the only version that will run MP this times, and whats more, it runs flawlessly at max details on ubuntu linux without even turning off unity that is stealing gl resourcess!!! (adding only vcrun2010, directplay, physX, d3dx9 liblaries by winetricks or PoL).

now u do:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. delete all steams used to launch AvP (GreenLuma, org Steams, SteamUp, ...), and delete whole installed AvP 2010 (after manoeuvring with patches it is needed)
2. download this Steam Package:

www20.zippyshare.com/v/10662084/file.html

to unrar older steam version without any install needed (contains GreenLuma that finally seemd to works) /as in tutorial

3. Install AvP RAZOR version, and what was not said: use included Patches on it [Update.1.and.2][Update.3][Update.4.to.6] in this order ------ DO NOT USE ANY OF FILES FROM SKIDROW directory!!! - only clean patches! i have probably used files from update 3, and IT prevented AvP Multi to run after all. -- that point is missing from tutorial u must clean patch it before using next, final patch:
4. download and finalize installation with Update 6 + MP-Fix v5 :

www14.zippyshare.com/v/23356545/file.html

5. run GreenLuma *(create NEW ACCOUNT!), don't add AvP as non-steam game, run AvP.exe and voilà.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PlayOnLinux makes another problem (game is closing right before launching)
-open terminal and input:
export WINEPREFIX=~/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/AvP2010 wine winecfg (use correct path to AvP wineprefix)
wine explorer
-use this explorer to do step 5. - GreenLuma (new account), AvP.exe - by double clicked
(you will be supriced that it works finally)

I hope this reply will help some ppl, becouse I was ready tu leave subject of MP with a failure.

launcher script
by s1w on Thursday September 19th 2013, 19:48
Ive made a launcher script. Upgraded wmctrl may be useful (github.com/geekless/wmctrl).

----------------------------------------------------

#!/bin/bash
avptimer=0;
steamwid=;
steamw=;

if [ `ps -ef | grep -v "grep" | grep -wc "GreenLuma.exe"` -eq 0 ]; then
notify-send "running GreenLuma, game will launch automatically...";
/usr/share/playonlinux/playonlinux --run "GreenLuma" %F &

while [ $avptimer -lt 40 ]; do
avptimer=`expr $avptimer + 1`
steamw=`xwininfo -name "Steam" 2>/dev/null | grep -e 'Window id: [^ ]\+' | sed 's/.*id: \([^ ]\+\).*/\1/'`;
[ -n $steamwid -a -n $steamw 2>/dev/null ] && [ "$steamwid" != "$steamw" ] && break;
sleep 1
steamwid=$steamw;
echo -n "."
done
wmctrl -c "Steam"
echo "GreenLuma loaded.";
fi

notify-send "launching Aliens vs Predator...";
/usr/share/playonlinux/playonlinux --run "AvP" %F
exit 0

multiplayer
by Yuki on Saturday March 3rd 2012, 16:55
bleh, so many exams x.X

once I get the time, I'll test the multiplayer part of this game.
except for dx11 stuff, pretty much everything's working here :3
RE: multiplayer
by Yuki on Monday March 19th 2012, 3:01
finally I had some time to play this game.
played AvP with a friend on steam, worked flawlessly.

Blur however causes lag which can be extremely annoying in multiplayer

by Plüss Roland on Thursday January 26th 2012, 13:28
Furthermore input doesn't work. Both in the menu and ingame the mouse controls work but the keyboard is dead.

"Too many declaration changes or converting dynamic buffer, stopping converting"

Most probably a bug in the compiler with KDE Compositing enable. Runs once KDE Compositing is temporarily disabled.

ugh, that's unusual..
I'm using kde on debian and avp2010 works just fine (after installing additional nonsense).

did you compile wine the usual way (./configure && make -jx w/o patches)?
If so, it would be good to file a bug report with the terminal output, so the devs can take a look in that
RE:
by Plüss Roland on Tuesday January 31st 2012, 14:19
I'm using GenToo so it's Wine with reasonable USE flags enabled (only what you need).
