What works

Everything, including the store.

What does not

The xml files for the Glyph client need to be edited to point to a local copy of the Glyph client's library that work around the version restriction.

Workarounds

For the sake of simplicity, I installed Trove via Steam.  In steamapps/common/Trove/GlyphClient.cfg edit "UseSteam" to be "UseSteam=1".  This will allow you to log in without Steam running.  You should also set Trove in Steam to not update unless it's run.  (Right click on Trove in the Library list, select "Properties," then the "Updates" tab.  In the "Automatic Updates" menu, choose "Only update this game when I launch it." Don't launch Trove through Steam.

Set the WINEPREFIX to be anything Vista or above. 

Forum post by Lynx3d is stll accurate: http://forums.trovegame.com/sh...

However, the file to edit is now GlyphClientApp.xml and SelfUpdateUrl (instead of WinxpSelfUpdateUrl) has to point to the local copy of Library.  

What was not tested

PvP

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia

Additional Comments

It works for both DX10 and OpenGL for me.  DX10 has some transparency issues with the UI, but otherwise runs fine.  I generally use OpenGL because it's slightly more efficient. It's installed to a 64-bit WINEPREFIX because I get a bit better performance. 

Only performance issues I get are those everyone else has:  lag before server resets.

HowTo / Notes

Update March 3, 2018

As of March 3rd, 2018 the Trove application can be run on Linux Systems, but you will not be able to get past the splash-screen. 

The Trove application cannot be played due to the following reasons:

  • The way that the Glyph installer authenticates a Trove session requires that Trove is started by the Glyph launcher. Therefore, if you start the Trove executable file and are able to get Trove running, you will get an authentication error at the splash-screen.
  • Receive the most common error "This game requires at least Windows Vista to run." on clicking the "Install" button.
  • You are not running an Intel or AMD-based processor and cannot support 32-bit or/and 64-bit architectures.

1. How to get Trove Running on Linux

    Requirements:

  •     A computer capable of running Windows. NOT WINE
  •     A Linux computer to test Trove on that has WINE INSTALLED (preferably the latest stable-build)
  •     Cloud-based storage or usb storage to transfer files
  1.     First, go over to your Windows computer and download and install the Glyph installer from https://www.trionworlds.com/gl...
  2.     After you have Glyph installed, run Glyph and install Trove.
  3.     Now, navigate from your c: drive to Program Files (x86)
  4.     From here, find the folder named Glyph and copy it.
  5.     Either paste the Glyph folder onto your usb drive, or upload it to the cloud file service of your choice.
  6.     If you chose a usb drive, eject it safely from your Windows computer and insert it into the Linux computer you want to install Trove. If you used a cloud file service, download the the file from the cloud.
  7.     Wherever your Glyph file is located, copy and paste it into your folder Programs (x86) located in /.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)
  8. Now for the moment of truth, navigate to the Glyph folder, then in Games, Trove, and right-click on Trove.exe and select run with Wine.
  9. If Trove starts you've done everything properly, congratulations!

Once again, I'd like to note that you will not be able to get past the splash-screen, however this method is definitely a step in the right direction! 

As I continue development on this project, I will keep this page updated, thank you and have a beautiful evening!
