HowTo / Notes

Game Data Updating and Integrity Checking/Repair

You can fully download all of the game data and any future updates required for Guild Wars 2 by appending -image as a command-line argument to the Guild Wars 2 executable (Gw2-64.exe or Gw2.exe). An example can be found below:

WINEPREFIX=~/'Wine Prefixes/Guild Wars 2' wine 'Gw2.exe' -image

You can also check the integrity of the game data archive by appending -repair as a command-line argument (this can take longer than 5-10 minutes to complete):

WINEPREFIX=~/'Wine Prefixes/Guild Wars 2' wine 'Gw2-64.exe' -repair

For quick guidelines:

  • For initial installations, -image is recommended so you don't have to worry about streaming data during gameplay
  • If you've had your Gw2.dat for a while, it's a good idea to run -repair on it every now and then after updates
  • If you've had to hard-shutdown your computer while GW2 was running, running -repair is highly recommended

BUG: Black Screen
by Ricardo Rodrigues on Wednesday June 20th 2018, 21:55
Hi,

Posting a Bug Report is a pain, so a comment will have to do.

I get a Black Screen when entering the game (after logging in) and this is because I changed the scale in xrandr.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Change scale: xrandr --output DP-2 --scale 0.75x0.75
2. Start the game.
3. Black screen, but game is responsive.

A lot of message errors will appear saying: X11DRV_ChangeDisplaySettingsEx No matching mode found 1440x1620x32 @0! (XRandR 1.2)

Current Solution: HACK

1. Create a script to start the game.
2. Before the command to start, scale back: xrandr --output DP-2 --scale 1x1
3. After the command to start, scale: xrandr --output DP-2 --scale 0.75x0.75
4. Start the game (no black screen)
Gentoo?

I found that this game works perfectly with older versions of wine too, it's all good (from 2.0 and upwards), I'm using Debian Stretch. I worked away all the error messages in the debug output and it works great. I even use the nvidia optimum, all good. Only i found that by switching to Wayland, that the mouse error (that the mouse stops at a certain point which prevents you from looking 360 degrees in 1 move) from long ago is back. In X I don't have this.
