Additional Comments

Make sure to use the latest winetricks (20171222 as of writing this) - instructions here.

  1. download the game installer for your region
  2. install required libraries with winetricks
    # winetricks -q d3dx9 gdiplus d3dx11_42 d3dx11_43 xact d3dcompiler_43 d3dx10_43 vcrun2015
  3. (optional) some final tuning
    # winetricks csmt=on ddr=opengl fontfix fontsmooth=rgb
  4. run the installer
    # wine PATH_TO_INSTALLER.exe

That's it - works perfectly.

HowTo / Notes

Recommended installation sequence (v.9.15)








As for many other apps, it is recommended that you install this game in clean wine prefix (directory, containing your "windows folders" and wine configuration).

The following installation sequence is recommended:

  • winetricks d3dx9_36 xact_jun2010
  • add msvcp110 and msvcr110 libraries using winecfg as "native, builtin"
  • Change "launcher_transport" from 3 to 2 in "WoTLauncher.cfg", to avoid torrent update issue (Bug#38980)
  • (Intel GPU) install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0 (S3TC compatible library) deb package from repository

WoT Crashes Upon Log-In
by Ian Sliwinski on Wednesday February 21st 2018, 11:47
A Linux noob here so I have probably done something wrong - requesting assistance from the Linux gurus in getting World of Tanks installed on my Ryzen system.

If you are willing to assist - what information do you need from me?

Thanks in advance for your kind assistance

Я написал эту инструкцию для World of Tanks и PlayOnLinux где-то полгода назад. Не знаю, работает ли она еще или нет, но может быть кому-то пригодится: github.com/cmrd-senya/wot-guide/blob/master/guide.md

disable xaudio, install flash player and ie7 for what?

for me, works only with:

set Windows 7
d3dx9_36 (i'm not sure, don't work with the latest dx9??)
xact
concrt140 (nat, built)
vcruntime140 (nat, built)

in my hackintoch (plain wine-staging 2.21)

and launch the game with:

RE: Fixed it!

It is not necessary to use XP enviroment.
Just run with command in WoT dir: "export WINEDEBUG=-all && wine ./WorldOfTanks.exe -clientGraphicsAPI d3d9".
Dx3d11 worked up to patch 9.20.
For each map 90-120FPS with WoT client HD

WINEARCH=Win64, Wine enviroment: Windows 7
RE: Fixed it!
by Kyle Snodgrass on Tuesday October 10th 2017, 21:24
I tried that and it now continuously crashes, is there a way to revert this? Or is it a spurious anomaly for me?
9.20 update made WoT crash on startup.
by LiraNuna on Wednesday August 30th 2017, 23:45
Something about the latest 9.20 update made my fully working setup stop working.
The logs are not being very useful.
Torrent update working in Arch
by CB on Sunday May 28th 2017, 0:05
Just wanted to say I was able to get the Wargaming updater UI graphics working with explorerframe and for whatever reason torrent updating is working fine for me, but I also tweaked with the recommended install and added a couple microsoft COM and network libraries. Can't say which did it for sure.
RE: Torrent update working in Arch

Oh, I'm using the 64bit wine2.8 system prefix from a clean wine-gaming-nine AUR build - 2.8/2.8-staging ~10 various updated (this week) patches incl. latest steam patch, etc. Very good PKGBUILD, check it out.
x64 installation was failing at proper game client download
by Przemysław Lib on Thursday April 13th 2017, 9:58
I was following this test result:
appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?bIsQueue=false&bIsRejected=false&sClass=distribution&iId=1410&sAction=view&sTitle=View+Distribution

Trick for me was to update that WotLauncher.cfg after a crash, and then start WotLauncher.exe again, manually. Download is progressing normally now.

Will update if game is playable after installation is finished (I use 64 bit wine prefix as opposed to linked test results)
RE: x64 installation was failing at proper game client download
by Przemysław Lib on Thursday April 13th 2017, 17:13
OK. Game runs on x64 without any issues. Performance is decent on standard setting on 2500ish x 1400is screen resolution.

Have not yet tested real battles though.
Missing Textures with Nvidia Driver 367.57
by Christian on Sunday March 12th 2017, 4:13
I had to update my system from Mint 17.3, where WoT ran perfectly, to 18.1. The only thing that is 'new', is the version of the Nvidia driver. Bot now, I am missing simple Textures like gun marks, SPG detonation marks on the ground but also water! While smoke and dust is visible, water is invisible.

Had anyone this problem before, and found a fix for that?
RE: Missing Textures with Nvidia Driver 367.57
by Christian on Sunday March 26th 2017, 7:56
I had to disable d3d11 to fix various graphical glitches.

1) Run winecfg
2) Goto the libraries tab
3) add d3d11
4) edit it to disable it.

Since 9.17 d3dx9_43 and msvcp140/msvcr140 are required.
Installation/Configuration:

- library dnsapi.dll override (buildin,native) [winecfg]
- enable CSMT in stagin tab [winecfg]
- change "launcher_transport" from 3 to 2 in "WoTLauncher.cfg"

did you install all the components listed in the instuctions?
install winetricks d3dx9_36 (play on linux configuration)
add msvcp110 and msvcr110 libraries using winecfg as "native, builtin" (wine configuration)
RE: msvcp110, msvcr110
by Brent on Friday November 10th 2017, 16:36
When I open the configure wine from launcher options (playonlinux), these two items are already in this library. I have been trying and trying for three days to get a functioning world of tanks game set up. I've been through Linux Mint, Debian Stretch, & am now on Ubuntu LTS. I would be very grateful if it was an easy install, such as playonmac was for me two years ago.
I'm not expert with source & I know very little about manipulating these scripts. I realize its a workaround of sorts and that takes more time. Please compile a 100% fool-proof & easily-understood sequence of installing, for us 'cattle'. Thanks.

WoT 0.9.17 + Wine Staging
by lyon on Friday December 30th 2016, 12:41
With Wine Staging (2.0rc3 at this moment) I had to disable xaudio2_7 library via winecfg to avoid getting unhandled exception right at the start. Other than that the game runs smooth and stable.
9.17 WoT with primusrun / optirun
by Anton Kondrachov on Wednesday December 14th 2016, 16:29
After a recent update of the game to 9.17 running the game on my nvidia card no longer works, technically it starts and plays, but the screen is tearing and flickering and it is very unpleasant and unplayable. If I run the game without the optirun / primusrun command it works fine, but on my intel card it's way slower with way less fps.
Worked perfectly fine in 9.16.

Linux-x86_64
Nvidia Geforce 740M

I have same issue. Latest stagging wine (2.0-rc2).
WOT works, but with 0.5fps it is unusable. Previous version 9.16 was fine.
Any manipulation with CSMT or VSYNC have none effect.
RE: 9.17 WoT with primusrun / optirun
by jdobry on Friday December 23rd 2016, 14:34
I found a solution. Find small arrow on "Play" button and recover graphical settings. It is all.

RE: 9.17 WoT with primusrun / optirun
by Margus on Monday January 16th 2017, 7:29
When the game starts and you see the big PLAY button, then on the right edge inside that button comes a line and after that thin line comes arrow up. You barely notice it. From there you get additional options on how to play the game : "Launch the game in safe mode" and "Launch the game with reset graphic settings"

If you you make the game full-screen again, then the fps will drop again :(

Thats what I thought but I cant get the arrow to open up any menu or commands.
New launcher , torrent update problem.
by Matija Trupkovic on Wednesday October 28th 2015, 9:32
There is problem with updating through torrent and in new launcher update you can not disable torrent updates in GUI.

What you need to do is go to folder where you installed WOT (if you installed using POL it should look something like this "/home/username/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/WorldOfTanks/drive_c/Games/World_of_Tanks"), edit "WoTLauncher.cfg" ,find line 3 and replace number 3 with number 2 and save the file.

That's it.

apparently, something is parsing away xml tags here.
the 2 is supposed to be surrounded by launcher_transport xml tag.

crackling sound, ALSA lib pcm.c:7905:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
by jontis on Friday August 7th 2015, 5:05
Also affecting World of Tanks 0.9.9 in Fedora 22.

Console is spammed with:
ALSA lib pcm.c:7905:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred

The problem can be remedied by editing /etc/pulse/default.pa

and changing default parameters to
default-fragments = 5
default-fragment-size-msec = 2

then restarting pulseaudio by
pulseaudio -k

solution found at
bbs.archlinux.de/viewtopic.php?id=27711

I'm not sure who should change their settings, Wine, Fedora or others, but hope this helps others make it work.
Unable to extract error
by Matija Trupkovic on Thursday July 9th 2015, 18:51
Download went ok,but when game was applying updates I got "unable to extract" error.

The solution was to manually unpack the files that give error (check the log, files can be found in "world_of_tanks/updates/") and move unpacked content to updates_data/res/***** (or something similar, I can't remember now (and am far from PC), it's next to updates folder).
You MUST let WOT to start download a patch and once you see folder of the same name that that patch has in /updates_data/res/, you can start copying.


***** - name of the patch.

Sorry if it's hard to understand, English is not my native language so I suck at it.
