What works

The game installation works as it does on Windows and the game runs as you would expect.

What does not

Login using ScopelyID makes the game client crash - but there's a fix!

Depending on which browser you're using in Linux and which settings you have applied in your browser the login process in the game client may not work, but fear not: There's a fix!

Steps for reproduction:

  1. Click on "Existing player" in game. A browser in your host operating system is started.
  2. Complete the login on the ScopelyID website which is opened. You will now experience that the game client just hangs.

Workarounds

Login using ScopelyID makes the game client crash - but there's a fix!

Steps for resolving the problem:

  1. Run "wine regedit"
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Wine
  3. Create the key (folder) "WineBrowser" if it doesn't exist, without the quotes
  4. Create a string value named "Browsers" if it doesn't exist and enter the value "firefox" without the quotes
  5. Close regedit
  6. Run "wine launcher" from within the game launcher directory
  7. Log in successfully now that the launcher opens Firefox
What this essentially does is ensuring that winebrowser.exe in your Wine installation uses Firefox instead of whatever your default browser in your host operating system is. During my testing I used a fresh install of Firefox without any customisation of any settings. Since I don't know which settings breaks the ScopelyID login I can't tell you why this works, but it is likely that any freshly installed browser will work. My daily driver is Chromium with some pretty tight security settings and that's probably related. I'm not going to dig deeper into this since the Firefox workaround just works.

Zooming in the game client stops working

This may be related to the fact that I use i3wm as my window manager, however when I switch between active windows zooming using the mouse scroll wheel stops working. This can be resolved by going into the game settings and toggling fullscreen off and on again. Whenever I change active windows this has to be done again.

TL;DR: Zooming in the game breaks when changing windows in Linux, but can be fixed.

What was not tested

No browser other than Chromium and Firefox were tested.

EndeavourOS Game doesn‘t install
by Martin on Saturday February 11th 2023, 7:47
Hi guys,
I don‘t get it working. I’m using the latest version of EndeavourOS (Arch Linux), including all updates.

I can download the PC installer -> right klick „Open with Wine Window Program Loader“ -> select language „English“ -> don‘t change the destination folder, just click on „Install“ -> it starts to install, but when trying to download launcher files an error message pops up:

Your internet connections seems to be not permitted or dropped out! Please reconnect and click Retry to resume installation. |

I don‘t think it‘s a bug, I just don‘t know what I need to enable to get internet working inside the installation process.

Thanks,
Martin

Hi Martin!

I don't think is necessarily related to neither the OS you're using nor the game itself. It sounds like your Wine environment doesn't have Internet access. Can you verify that the built-in Internet browser can access Google for instance? You can try the command "wine iexplore google.com" in a Linux terminal of your choice.

Hello Severin,

thx a lot for your reply.

I tried „wine cmd“
then „ping www.google.de“
Everything is fine.

„iexplore google.com“ opens the internet explorer showing „www.google.com“ and is getting redirected to „www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl“
Neither on http nor on https I can see content from google.

How can I get access to the internet inside the wine environment?

Oh, nice! I'll definitely test that. How did you figure it out?

Potential memory problem with Wine 7.2-1
by Martin Severin Steffensen on Thursday February 17th 2022, 15:18
After upgrading to Wine 7.2-1 I've noticed that memory usage keeps increasing without being freed up. If anyone is experiencing similar behaviour with this version of Wine let me know, it'll be helpful in the hunt for the underlying reason.

Did you notice this on older versions? Im still on Wine 5 and it ends up taking multiple gigabytes before I need to restart.
Login issues
by Martin Severin Steffensen on Thursday December 30th 2021, 7:52
I've been able to install the game and get the game launcher to run using wine 7.0rc1-1 in Arch Linux, however I'm unable to successfully log in using ScopelyID. Did you have any problems logging in, or did you log in using Windows and then copy that version over? When I click "Existing account" I'm sent to the login screen in my browser, but completing the login attempt in the browser does not make the game launcher complete the login process so it's just stuck at "Social login" and 60%.
RE: Login issues
by Maquis196 on Thursday December 30th 2021, 11:35
I just logged in on the browser tbh, whichever one wine opened for me (think it was konqueror at the time). Wonder if its worth installing firefox in that wineprefix and launching that? Once done you're set forever though.
RE: Login issues
by Martin Severin Steffensen on Thursday December 30th 2021, 12:12
I've made it work now. Thanks for pointing me in the direction of considering browsers.

What I did was the following:

1) Run "wine regedit"
2) Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Wine
3) Create the key (folder) "WineBrowser" if it doesn't exist, without the quotes
4) Create a string value named "Browsers" (if it doesn't exist) with the value "firefox", without the quotes
5) Close regedit
6) Run "wine launcher" from within the game launcher directory
7) Log in successfully now that the launcher opens Firefox

In essence this makes winebrowser.exe start Firefox instead of whatever your default browser in your host operating system is.

My daily driver is Chromium with some pretty tight security settings and that is probably related to why I was experiencing the login difficulties, but I'm not going to bother drilling deeper into it since the Firefox workaround works.

I'm going to test the game with wine 7.0rc1-1 for a couple of days and report back with a recommendation for a new rating if I find that it works as one would expect if it was running in Widnows.
