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.

What works

The downloader and installer work.

The installer detects missing vc2005 runtime and offers to install it, which works.

Automatic patching at client startup also works.


What does not

Choosing planets and launching the actual game does not work.Clicking launch causes an empty small modal window to show, and the game does not launch.


What was not tested

Anything besides downloader/installer/patcher.

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.
