What works

Most of the things work like expected but the game will run much slower than on windows.

The game engine is very poorly optimized and it runs slow even on windows but with wine the framerate is terrible even with lowest settings (i get around 20FPS).

How to get it running under wine

  • first install wine and winetricks (sudo apt-get install wine winetricks)
  • create a new text file name it dk.reg and copy/paste the blue text below (make sure to change Z:\\Path\\To\\DKOnline to the actual path where DKOnline is installed, run wine explorer move to where the game is installed and copy the path)

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AeriaGames\DKOnline]
"RunFileName"="DKOnline.exe"
"Version"="7.0.0.22"
"DestDir"="Z:\\Path\\To\\DKOnline"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AeriaGames\DKOnline\7.0.0.22]
@=""

  • open a terminal and run wine regedit dk.reg to set the required entry in the registry
  • we need to install a few things before we can start the game so run the following command in a terminal winetricks ie8 corefonts d3dx9_42 jet40
  • mdac28 is required but we have to install it manually wget http://download.microsoft.com/download/4/a/a/4aafff19-9d21-4d35-ae81-02c48dcbbbff/MDAC_TYP.EXE; winetricks win2k; wine MDAC_TYP.EXE; winetricks winxp
  • Ok the game should run fine now, if you get a "Game data failed to load" message please check here on how to configure wine to work with windows ODBC drivers. If the game displays a message complaining that windows is updating just move it out of the way and ignore it.

What does not

The game crashes randomly at times.

I did notice some graphical artifacts, ocasionally some polygons will be diplayed incorectly when rotating the camera around also in the distance objects will flicker a little and the sky texture will get black for a few seconds.

Workarounds

What was not tested

  • Starting the game using the aeria games launcher
  • Prolonged gameplay
Current version of the game doesn't have any kind of protection like HackShield or XTrap also the main executables aren't encrypted, this is most likely the reason why it works with wine.

Hardware tested
