Black Wall in Ravenwood/Multi-color Splash in The Commons

The problems of a black  "wall" just inside the entrance to Ravenwood and a multicolor "splash" in the Commons are not Wine issues: both problems have been reported by Windows users on the Wizard101 Message Board.

Launcher Error

Beginning with Wine 1.5.28, GnuTLS is used for secure connections rather than OpenSSL. On systems with older versions of libgcrypt, the launcher will throw up an error dialog when trying to load the Ravenwood News, and console output will contain the line

ient/BankA/WizardLauncher.exe: ath.c:193: _gcry_ath_mutex_lock: Assertion
`*lock == ((ath_mutex_t) 0)' failed.

This is bug 27036.  According to the bug report, this is fixed in newer versions of libgcrypt, so upgrading that library should solve the issue (it did on my system). For users unable to upgrade, simply clicking "No" will close the dialog and the game will load and play normally.

Graphics Cards/Drivers

The platinum-rated test reports above are for a non-legacy Nvidia card running the proprietary driver. Problems have been reported with older Intel GPUs.
