What works

Everything, except installer (it has a workaround).

The older bug, which happened to alot of players with not showing icons is gone.

I have found a workaround on how to log in and not get a game freeze. You just need to install Firefox on Wine (download Firefox for Windows and install it like any other wine app). Then launch the Firefox with wine, go to Atlantica Online website, log in there and press the PLAY button. It works!

How to install the game: download the game installer via Windows (for example in Virtualbox) and get the whole installer. When you got the whole (about 3GB installer), you can install it normally with wine.

What does not

It sometimes crashes in more lively areas, where are many players.

It sometimes crashes at MyHome.


What was not tested

I haven't tested TBS, PvP and raids yet.

Some icons aren't displayed
by Quick on Saturday August 24th 2013, 6:39
I'm using Ubuntu 13.04 and wine1.6 and the game works.
The missing icons issue must be from Nvidia drivers i did't see them with nvidia_304.88 from ubuntu but with the Short lived nvidia_325.15 missing icons have appered, so this might not be a wine bug.

Hello again guys.
Yes i'm still playing this game... V 4.13.12 i'm running Ubuntu 14.04 Thrusty Tahr wine 1.6.2 and got the Nvidia driver 331.38, icons are back, game runs ok, right mouse click used to turn around camera is still annoying.
I had somme problems connecting to the server via Launcher i didn't get update while the Atlantica.exe was still connecting to the login and game server, but that was solved after i've installed via winetricks IE8 and vcrun2010 so i recommend you all to install those.
mouse problems
by xpt on Saturday December 29th 2012, 19:55
anyone have problems with the pointer?
RE: mouse problems
by James Potts on Sunday December 30th 2012, 1:12
I have no mouse problems at all that I can tell. What language is your version of Atlantica Online, and what version of Wine are you using?

RE: mouse problems
by xpt on Sunday December 30th 2012, 5:30
In spanish and wine-1.5.20
Before the upgrade (before switching to nexon) i played without problems
RE: mouse problems
by James Potts on Monday December 31st 2012, 2:52
I have found that with the US version, at least for me, Wine versions higher than 1.5.17 don't work at the moment. You might try installing wine 1.5.17 and seeing if that fixes the problem.

RE: mouse problems
by James Potts on Monday December 31st 2012, 7:45
Actually, having seen your wine version, I think I do have this "pointer" problem. The problem is when you right-click your mouse to rotate the camera, the pointer disappears AND the view rotates a very small amount then stops? This is the graphics "freeze" I described in my report.

During regression testing I discovered that this isn't a true freeze, and is easy to recover from (press and release alt on the keyboard), but it just happens again the next time you try to rotate the camera, and renders the game non-playable in versions of Wine higher than 1.5.17. For now, if you want to play Atlantica, you'll need to use wine 1.5.17 or lower.

As noted above, I am now in the (long) process of running a regression test on this, and will file a bug report as soon as I've finished.

RE: mouse problems
by xpt on Tuesday January 1st 2013, 22:32
Exactly, i have installed the version 1.5.17 and it works fine.
RE: mouse problems
by Quick on Saturday August 24th 2013, 6:44
Just to let everyone know wine1.6 stable still has the spike when moving camera.
RE: mouse problems
by James Potts on Saturday August 24th 2013, 12:47
Yeah, you're gonna have to use wine 1.5.17 to avoid that - and that means using PlayOnLinux now, since I don't think you can download that version of Wine anymore.

And yes, I knew (and said, iirc) that the icon issue wasn't likely a wine issue, since it also happens in VMWare/VirtualBox.

I got the downloader from and pressed download and then keep (im using Chromium) and then i went into the "Dowloads" directory where the stuff i download usually ends up. i found the downloader, right-clicked it, chose open with and then wine. Now instead of the downloader popping up and installing the game i get two error messages

Message 1: GetThreadContext failed
Message 2: Internal error - invalid parameters received

and then... nothing.
Im using ubuntu 12.04 by the way :I
RE: Uhm...
by James Potts on Wednesday December 26th 2012, 22:27
The game can be installed and made to run with just the downloader, but you'll need to have either winetricks or PlayOnLinux installed, and you'll have to use the command line (or do a completely manual install involving use of the shell in PlayOnLinux - you can't even install it from the downloader using the "install a non-listed program" method). If you understand what I'm talking about, you'll need to install vcrun2008 (as a package in PoL or using winetricks), and then start the installer from the prompt/shell like this:

$ GC_DONT_GC="1" wine ~/Downloads/ATDownloaderV32108.exe

And the downloader will work. I'll see if I can't make a PlayOnLinux installer for it, though, since that looks like it'll be much easier for you. :-)

Cant launch the game
by Marezz on Saturday May 7th 2011, 17:23
Im unable to launch the game using the browser since I cant install the Nexon Game Manager, so I tried to launch it from the game folder using AtlanticaRun.exe and I get an error saying that Atlantica is currently under maintenance.Please try later. I checked their website, the servers were online, there was no maintenance. Current game version [30434]
RE: Cant launch the game
by Alfio on Sunday May 8th 2011, 9:31
I have the same exact result, this is probably due to nexon transfer, servers were probably moved somewhere else too due to the migration, i'm waiting the new installer to try and see if the error is from the migration or from a change in the code that broke the game with wine, if the reason is the code change i'll try to see where the packets are going using windows and compare the results with wine, a workaround might be found this way
RE: Cant launch the game
by Marezz on Thursday May 19th 2011, 10:03
Hey, any news about this issue? I'd really like to play Atlantica :(
RE: Cant launch the game
by Alfio on Thursday May 19th 2011, 14:40
Did a bit of work checking but it's not fully done yet, apparently there was a change into the code that made it not working anymore.

A fully patched client being run directly from the executable (not the patcher but the game one) tries to login but cannot reach the server.

My best bet would be to monitor the traffic on windows with wireshark writing down the ip it tries to connect, then on linux using the same method find the address, if they are the same nothing can be done (i have nothing coming into my mind for this, if someone can help me with some input it would be welcome), if not using iptables with a postrouting rule would (with some luck) make it work redirecting the traffic from the bad IP to the right one.

I remember Ragnarok online suffering this problem when the main executable was patched to disable nProtect, years ago i posted the rule to apply in one of my reports for that game, if the game tries the connection to a domain name, editing /etc/hosts might be enough.

in case you have the time and the knowledge to try the iptable rule is:


wireshark can be found packaged in almost all the distributions, to install it simply use:

Debian based (.deb packages):
apt-get install wireshark

Red Hat Based (.rpm packages):
yum install wireshark

Gentoo and the likes:
emerge wireshark

If someone tries what said above, please reply and report the results, this will save time to figure what's wrong with Atlantica and might help other users to find out a way to make it work again
Cant log in
by Loki on Monday January 3rd 2011, 15:48
The game crashe on "Connected to the login server". No licence agriment, i already play it on windows. Tried Wine 1.3.10 and 1.2.2.

I'm getting this also. I'm looking for a work around and trying to contact others that have gotten past this to find out what works so I can post it here.
Atlantica Download
by Rodney Moss on Thursday March 25th 2010, 20:07
When i try to download Atlantica, either lite or full version, from, all i get is a 1.7 meg file

~/Downloads/Games/AtlanticaOnline $ ls -sh
total 3.4M
1.7M AtlanticaDownloaderLiteV21410.exe
1.7M AtlanticaDownloaderVer21505.exe

Despite both being identical size (1749176) they have different md5sum.

If i try running one of the 1.7 meg files i get:
$ wine AtlanticaDownloaderVer21505.exe
err:seh:setup_exception_record stack overflow 1024 bytes in thread 0024 eip 7ef732c2 esp 00c50f30 stack 0xc50000-0xc51000-0xe50000

What's supposed to happen?

I have created for this an bug report. You can vote for it :)
RE: Atlantica Download
by Rodney Moss on Friday March 26th 2010, 1:18
Bug commented on and voted for (after i eventually worked out my bugs user and pass)

I've never played or installed Atlantica before.

On the download they say ~600M and ~2G, is it supposed to be a 1.7M installer that then downloads the other files?

Is it likely to install with a wine downgrade?
RE: Atlantica Download
by Thomas Kowaliczek on Friday March 26th 2010, 5:03
I have installed my Atlantica with Wine 1.1.17 and i play it with 1.1.41+
RE: Atlantica Download
by Rodney Moss on Friday March 26th 2010, 8:53
with wine 1.1.17, with a completely new .wine directory

$ wine AtlanticaDownloaderVer21505.exe
err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0x73db30

So is it changes to the installer, rather than a regression in wine?

Anywhere to get hold of an older installer maybe?
RE: Atlantica Download
by Thomas Kowaliczek on Friday March 26th 2010, 12:11
The problem here is that it is an Downloader not the Full Client Package.
Here i found an Full Client Download but it´s old. I think after installing that the updater will load many patches but maybe it works for you:

I´m using the German Atlantica Client with an Full Installer not with an Downloader.
RE: Atlantica Download
by Rodney Moss on Sunday March 28th 2010, 4:50
i tried a somewhat newer 2g download than that. it was a zip rather than a rar and somewhat smaller.
it installed fine.
it runs to logon screen and shows the demo battle just fine.
when i log in tells me it's too old a version.
when i run the patcher it tells me it's too old a version to patch and to go get a newer one from the website, which would mean the 1.7 meg thing that doesn't work.

So if you're trying to dl the full game from gamershell, i'd suggest trying the newest. (currently

I will try when i next get a chance to dl 2gig
RE: Atlantica Download
by Rodney Moss on Sunday March 28th 2010, 8:21
Another note, attempting to update the older version i downloaded from the manual patches on the website, i get stuck at
Patch file ver. 21007 to 21305
The patch executable tells me i don't have the game installed. which since the game seems to run (if only i could log in), seems odd.

Wine Version
by DJ Hanson on Thursday February 4th 2010, 14:44
The latest Wine update (1.1.37) broke my install. Had to reinstall under 1.1.35 (done with PlayOnLinux Wine prefix). Please confirm if anyone else has had this problem.

Can't log in
by James on Monday January 25th 2010, 23:09
Hi, I've got the game started correctly but at the login screen when I enter my account information, it just hangs at "Connecting to the login server". Is there anything I'm missing?
RE: Can't log in
by James on Monday January 25th 2010, 23:16
I also tried running AtlanticaRun.exe and it can't connect to the front server. This is interesting. What's blocking Atlantica from connecting?
