Downloaded in may 2020 from the editor website. The download URL is only available after registering by email.
Note: the 'installer' (APB_Reloaded_Downloader.exe) does download 2 files: APB_Reloaded_Installer.exe and Client126.96.36.1990463.7z
Once downloaded, only these 2 files are required to install the game.
Main menu, sounds, music, auto update.
What does not
1. Launcher (APBLauncher.exe) does crash as soon as launched, when it tries to auto update the game.
2. In the menu, after selecting the team (Criminal / Enforcer), the menu shows a video then a next menu screen, but it crashes as soon the button 'Next' is clicked.
1. winetricks dotnet461 (note: dotnet40 and dotnet45 does not fix).
2. No workaround found. I tried: winetricks mdac28 xmllite riched30 quartz
What was not tested
Playing the game.
The steps I did :
export WINEARCH=win32 && export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-apb_reloaded
wincfg -> win7
