What works

Installation is OK out of the box

Patching is easy with the script available on

Game runs fine, without graphics bug, at good framerate.

What does not

Sound is stuttering.

I have performance issue every 2-3 second but it does'nt seem to be Ryzom related. (Comment by Zyrom: this might be due to the sound, setting msvcrt to native, bultin might also improve the situation)

Software mouse cursor is slow. Hardware mouse cursor is invisible in 32 bit mode so you have to patch wine to keep your X11 mouse cursor (comment by Zyrom: this does not happen on all distros FC5/6 with latest NVIDIA driver does not exibit this)

HowTo / Notes

  1. Download the game (and create you account)
  2. Install the game (no special wine config needed)
  3. Copy mfc42.dll, msvcp60.dll and msvcrt.dll to your Ryzom installation folder
  4. Run winecfg and add a override to msvcrt (native/buildin) in "Libraries" tab
  5. Set Windows version to Win2000, WinXP or Vista (for HardwareCursor to display correctly)
  6. Use the minimal client.cfg from below (overwrite the lines of the client.cfg in your Ryzom installation folder. You may change the setting later ingame or using the configuration tool)
  7. Starting the game should look something like this:
WINEDEBUG=-all nice -n 19 wine client_ryzom_rd.exe > /dev/null


RootConfigFilename   = "client_default.cfg";
HardwareCursor       = 1;
FullScreen           = 0;
Driver3D             = "OpenGL";
SoundOn              = 0;
BackgroundDownloader = 0;
LanguageCode         = "en";
StartupHost          = "";
StartupPage          = "/login/r2_login.php";
InstallStatsUrl      = "";
PatchServer          = "";

Ingame screens getting messed up by switching desktops says:

In Section "Device" of your xorg.conf file you should check that Option "DynamicTwinView" "true" is set. ­In section screen you should set your resolution and RefreshRate by just adding the line Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024_75 +0+0; 1280x1024 +0+0" (modify to your needs - this line is for a 17" flat panel).

You'll notice that every app that uses xrandr extension to read and set resolution will have the values all messed up, but that's a known issue and it still works well. Set Ryzom to use the new RefreshRate by selecting it in ryzom_configuration_rd.exe.

- I have not tested this atm

If you play Ryzom fullscreen, then on startup Ryzom minimizes itself (currently at least). Unpatched WINE (see Bug: #16517) resizes Ryzom to 32x32 size icon (and hides it if WINE desktop is not used), on patched WINE, Ryzom stays fullscreen like nothing happened, but it is infact in icon mode, so you need to d­ouble-click to get keyboard/mouse control back.
