Entropia Universe

During VU 11, systems removed during the update to CryEngine2 for VU10 were gradually re-introduced. The first additional partner planet, Rocktropia, went live as a rock/music-themed world.

Standalone Offline installers for Entropia Universe can be found here.

What works

ClientLoader.exe works and makes upgrades, allows changing options. Entropia.exe starts with '-run' switch with almost black screen(some lights are visible) but sound works - you can hear music. Broken login window is visible, but you do not see letters when typing, anyway you can log in. After logging in you see mouse pointer on almost black screen with blue bar on bottom. Sometimes after some time you are able to see contour of user interface and buttons but without textures.

What does not

Textures are not visible, so playing is impossible.

Fixing low shaders

The information below was taken from a user comment left on 2012-08-26; it may or may not be relevant to current Wine.


As many guides suggest it is possible to avoid the artefacts by setting shaders to high. However, if your machine can not run the game with good performance with them set that high there is a easy fix.


1. Set the shaders to High then apply and exit the game.
2. Navigate to "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Entropia Universe/public_users_data/public_users_data", or wherever you installed the game.
3. Edit settings-ce.cfg with a text editor, for example gedit.
4. Find the following lines and change them to 0, or whatever is most appropriate for your system:
q_ShaderFX = 2
q_ShaderGeneral = 2
q_ShaderGlass = 2
q_ShaderHDR = 2
q_ShaderIce = 2
q_ShaderMetal = 2
q_ShaderPostProcess = 2
q_ShaderQualityDummy = 2
q_ShaderShadow = 2
q_ShaderSky = 2
q_ShaderTerrain = 2
q_ShaderVegetation = 2
q_ShaderWater = 2

You will now have artefact free graphics and much better performance, you can set all the other settings however you like in game.

This method works because setting shaders to high in game changes a few other settings, I have not nailed down which exactly causes the artefacting, but until someone does more testing this should help.
