HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

If you have any problems with playing Rome, you should try this:

  1. Use the lowest graphic settings, because one of them crashes the game
  2. Type wine regedit in a terminal. Then go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER / Software / Wine / Direct3D or create it if it doesn't exist. Now you have to add two new keys.DirectDrawRenderer with the string value opengl and VideoMemorySize with the string value of you graphic memory size, for example 512 or 256.

If you want to post a test please write in it, if you have an ATI/AMD,Nvidia,or any other graphic card, because they can cause different problems

I've been able to barely run RTW RTR v 4.0 with Wine 1.4. The main menus are completely wasteful and block colors, binary text but was able to load a saved game. Following the key instructions the result was a very harsh looking 8 bit modal window with no mouse, and some flicking map content. Music worked perfectly. Still unplayable at this state.

Upgrade Wine to version 1.6 through terminal and RTR ExRM will run! I will test features and report back only if there are errors or bugs but loading screens all seem ok at this point.

I am running Wine 1.4.1 with Lubuntu 13.04.

The game appears to have installed happily enough. No errors through the install process. However (after following the suggestions re: Direct3D in the "how to" section) when trying to run I get a splash screen consisting of three large blocks of colour followed eventually by a crash to desktop.

Here are the error messages:

I'm getting some of the same errors as you. Other games I play run fine. Only RTW and MTW2 have issues. The installation, sound, and game itself runs. The graphics, however, are choppy and messed up to the point where they are unplayable.

I have an Intel HD 4000, Ubuntu 32-bit 13.04, vcrun2008, d3dx9, and dotnet35. Just curious, what graphics card do you have? What winetricks have you installed?

I believe the issue is with either the DirectX, the Intel drivers for Linux, or the Intel graphics card itself.

The fixing of the split loading screen must have been a fluke. It is back to the way it always was.
All units are black
by Hermann on Thursday September 22nd 2011, 9:56
I had this running well in Ubuntu 10.4 I cant remember the wine version.
I h=also had an nvidia built in video.

Now i run linux mint 11 64 bit kernel 2.6.38.11 with ati radeon hd 4200 built in video with the ati catalyst driver 2:8.840
wine 1.2.2 The game is Rome Total War with Barbarian Invasion Gold Edition with 4 cds counting BI.

The game installed ok. The mouse does the usual -- wont rotate right or down-- but thats ok, I use the keyboard.
Adding "Multisampling" with the value "enabled" seemed to fix the split green loading windows.
My problem is that no matter what game settings i use, all the units are black on the battle map.The are ok zoomed way out but when I move in and at angles they all go black. The dead are bluish green. Its annoying.
Anyone have any clue whats going on?

Thanks,
Hermann
RE: All units are black
by Roger Barrett on Saturday March 17th 2012, 19:05
Hmm, I also have the black texture issue on Wine 1.4 / Ubuntu 11.10 / ATI HD3700.

I know that there is nothing wrong with the environment, since my own OpenGL code runs fine, so I assume there is something strange about the interaction of this program with Wine when the full DDS textures are drawn. As you point out, when you move away from a model, and drawing switches to one of the DDS sub-textures, it seems to be OK.

Perhaps I'll try to run wine with debugging turned on to see if anything obvious turns up.
Strange Errors
by KevinS on Monday August 15th 2011, 23:13
Hey all,

I've been searching everywhere for an answer but I can't seem to find any after searching high and low. I got the boxset that includes up to RTW:Alexander.

I had no problems installing the game, that went pretty smoothly. Starting the game works perfectly and the splash / menu screen appears perfectly and the sound is all good.

However, when I enter a battle, the progress bar loads to the end and I get the following output from my console:

Forgot to add:

I'm using Arch Linux with wine-1.3.26 and I recently updated my nVidia 8800GTX graphics drivers (issue was occurring before this update however).
RE: Strange Errors

Hey, my first port of call would be to go into the rome directory and then confirm that data/battefield exists.

From looks of it, its either;

1. Missing altogether
2. is Battlefield or BATTLEFIELD. Remember, windows and Linux store filenames differently. It wouldnt matter on windows but if the game is looking for battlefield, it wont bother looking in Battlefield.

Cheers,
Maq

Thanks for your help Maq,

I checked that directory, 'battlefield' seems to exist, although the strange thing is, none of the files specified exist.

I tried reinstalling up to Barbarian Invasion, and that didn't seem to fix the issue, as the files still don't appear in the directory.

There are some files there, but it would seem that no all of them are. I can't seem to find any results through Google about this, what do you think the problem could be?


Thanks,

~Kevin

These are the files I have with the Gold Edition (Steam install). BI is a seperate entity so wouldn't worry about that for now. I'm quite at a lose tbh, it sounds game related rather then wine. What files do you have in there?

as it stands, I haven't got the files either, but my game works fine. Are you using only the right patches?
Units not displaying properly, no A-A, cursor prob, hangs exiting.
by Steve Watson on Sunday June 19th 2011, 21:00
Hi,
Wine 1.2.2, Ubuntu 10.10 64bit, ATI 5870 1GB

The principal problems I am having are:
At high resolutions, only the spears of units appear.
At lower resolutions, horsemen are sitting on air - no horses.
Quit hangs the program and I have to reboot.

Minor quibbles - no anti-aliasing and the cursor misbehaves at the bottom of the screen, making it awkward to select and order units. At lowest resolutions it becomes much worse.

Any help much appreciated
RE: Units not displaying properly, no A-A, cursor prob, hangs exiting.

Concerning graphical anomalies: Which version of fglrx are you using?
Try changing other settings, shadows, etc.

AA is disabled in the registry, you have to enable it manually. Lookup "Useful Registry Keys" in the wiki.

For mouse issue, I don't believe the problem was ironed out with 1.2.2. Upgrade to 1.2.3 or developmental version 1.3.2x
RE: Units not displaying properly, no A-A, cursor prob, hangs exiting.
by Steve Watson on Tuesday September 27th 2011, 8:24
Not sure what you mean by fglrx version. Driver is 8.78.30. I hope that is what you mean. Setting a low resolution and turning everything off or to lowest value displays men sitting in the air and chariots being pulled by nothing. Higher resolutions, nearly everything disappears except spears.

RE: cant run it
by Maquis196 on Saturday May 21st 2011, 4:16
Hi, it seems to me like you have updated your nvidia drivers but haven't rebooted since then.

To avoid rebooting you need to exit X and then run the following;

# rsmod nvidia
# modprobe nvidia

and then start up X again, unfortunately I don't know which version of Linux you are running so I can't be more specific on how to kill X so a reboot might be easiest. If a reboot doesn't fix it you'll need to reinstall your nvidia drivers again!

Cheers,

Rome TW
by Emanuele on Monday March 14th 2011, 17:18
Hi.

First of all my configuration:

OS: Gentoo Base release 1.12.14
Kernel: 2.6.36-gentoo-r5 (i686)
Display Driver: fglrx 8.82.8
OpenGL: 4.1.10524
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5800 1024MB (765/1125MHz)

Wine version: 1.3.15

I've installed Rome TW Gold from Total Era compilation. No problem for install, but the game lacks mouse wheel and it is really choppy. Mouse scroll simply stops working and restart working in no time.
Worst of all the battles are loaded only with extra minimum details and anyway the terrain it's only black.

Of course no video playback at all neither with Sacred .wmv files how to.

The registry is fine with all the suggested settings apart from disabling VertexShader otherwise in 99% of Wine emulated D3D games I cannot see any 3D model.

I do not think mine are Wine's problem: maybe Ati drivers are far from perfect.

Thanks.
RE: Rome TW
by William J May on Wednesday September 21st 2011, 1:24
Did you check the fglrx installation?

What was your source for fglrx?

Does mesa-demos function properly? glxgears fgl_glxgears

Can you run other 3D programs like Compiz?

Having a newer card means lesser level of support from driver, although work on it receives priority from AMD. Try newer drivers.
Antialiasing in Rome Total War

Antialising is not detected by default in Rome Total War, when you go advanced video settings.
In order to enable it in RTW, add the following registry keys by starting "wine regedit".
- "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/wine/Direct3D": create string "Multisampling", set value to "enabled";
- if RTW screen turns black after adding the previous key, create key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/wine/Direct3D", create string "OffscreenRenderingMode", set value to "backbuffer".

No mouse movement in battles
by Pasquale Pompeo on Thursday May 6th 2010, 12:06
Hi, i'm using wine 1.1.42 on Ubuntu Lucid. The game works well but in the battles i can't move the mouse; it remains on the center of the screen, so i can't go on and the game is unplayable. Any help? Thanks
RE: No mouse movement in battles

right apparently windows and linux handle mouse movement in a different way but the linux kernel has been updated to fix this problem recently.
So either its a regression in wine or some other issue with lucid

Problem was mouse escaping windowed mode in many games. So a "fix" was made, unfortunately Windows and X.org handle mouse locations differently. So the "fix" was tied to winecfg option: 'Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows'. Disable it to see if that helps.
stuck in main menus
by mitchell shinderman on Wednesday March 17th 2010, 22:25
Hello everyone!

I'm running ubuntu 9.10 using the latest version of Wine. I tried running my installation of Rome: Total War 1.5, but to no avail, and I'm very curious as to why.

I can get to the main menus fine, but whenever I try to start a new campaign or battle or really literally just about anything outside of the menus, the game almost immediately takes me right back to the main menu, which is incredibly annoying.

Also, the intro scenes are cut out completely, and I don't know why, either. Can anybody at all help me with this? Thanks so much!
RE: stuck in main menus
by William J May on Monday April 12th 2010, 0:50
1: When you say 'latest version of Wine' I assume 1.1.41 from the Ubuntu repository. Am I right?

2: Have you tried starting the game from the command line to see possible error messages while running Wine in a virtural desktop?

3: Which graphics card are you using: nVidia, ATI, or other? Also, do you know the driver version for your graphics processor?

P.S. Don't post console output here, just summarize it.

Crashes on the main menu screens
by brillenfux on Sunday March 7th 2010, 9:43
I cannot do anything on the main menu screens (like setting up the options or creating a new battle etc) because after some seconds RTW will crash giving me this error:

wine client error:0: init_thread failed with status c000011f

There's a million (or so) messages of those two beforehand:

fixme:devenum:DEVENUM_ICreateDevEnum_CreateClassEnumerator Category {71985f4b-1ca1-11d3-9cc8-00c04f7971e0} not found
fixme:devenum:DEVENUM_ICreateDevEnum_CreateClassEnumerator Category {a2e3074f-6c3d-11d3-b653-00c04f79498e} not found

That's it.. if I managed to start a campaign (fast fingers required) I can always continue my campaing and play without crashes.
However multiplayer is impossible because of this..

'fixme' messages are usually no big deal...

Which distro are you using, and which version of Wine?
xf86-video-ati
by roog on Wednesday March 3rd 2010, 7:49
Hi All,

I was hoping to get some user experiences from people who are using the open source xf86-video-ati driver from xorg. For me the game R:TW isn't working very well with this driver: the campaign is working fine (although the water has a really strange brown/yellow color), but the battles don't. The FPS go down to maybe 0.5/second, most of the textures are black, and the game responds very slowly to mouse or keyboard input. My specs:

video card: ATI Mobility Radeon X1600
distribution: Arch Linux
kernel: 2.6.32.8
xorg: 1.7.5
driver: xf86-video-ati 6.12.4
wine: 1.1.39

Is the game supposed to work at all with this driver? Are there any specific settings required? Or should I try a different driver (catalyst - ugh!)?

Thanks,

Roog
RE: xf86-video-ati
by William J May on Wednesday September 21st 2011, 1:47
I'm using twin HD2600s and the opensource driver does me no good for gaming. I can use it for Compiz, but Knights of the Old Republic looked like crap. Although I would think 3D was complete for the X1600...
I'm using Catalyst/fglrx. It's a beast to install, but 3D works much better.
Wine -> PulseAudio via OSS/Alsa
by William J May on Thursday February 18th 2010, 23:22
I've been using Wine-OSS for TW:Rome quite awhile now. I also have Half-Life 2 via Steam. Half-Life only works for me with Alsa. So with Alsa enabled I started up TW:Rome, go to play and a few minutes later- system hardlock.

Using Mandriva 2010 with PulseAudio.

Figured I'd share this in case it's useful to someone.
Instalation Problem

wine version: 1.1.29

I removed wine again and again and... and made fresh installs.
With first install attempt it stops at the end of 3rd CD. Always same file.
Terminal log:
------------------------------

Than I remove game files (cant uninstall). With second install and so one, it stops again at cd1 or cd2, randomly.
Cd-s should be ok, I can install game in windows.
Mybe my cd-rom is old...

Will try to install on newer machine.

I get the exactly the same error, possible issue with the retail CD? I'll check with downloaded image once it finishes and report back.

RE: Instalation Problem
by Xyem on Saturday January 9th 2010, 7:26
So, I think I may have found out what is happening.

The setup tries to copy "$CDROM/Setup/Data/Data/banners/navy_banners.CAS" while Disc 3 is in.. but this file doesn't exists on Disc 3, it is on Disc 1. Perhaps the installer ignores this in Windows ( or prompts for Disc 1 again? I don't remember ).
RE: Instalation Problem
by Pawel on Tuesday July 12th 2011, 6:34
I had a similar problem and based on your comment I managed to solve it. I copied the data from all 3 CDs to one directory, but it appeared that some data (among others "banners" dir) were in the "data" directory not in "Data" - I copied everything from data to Data dir and installation worked ok.
RE: Instalation Problem
by Xyem on Tuesday July 12th 2011, 6:39
Did you have to move these files? Because Windows is not case sensitive, I would have expected Wine to handle it correctly. Unless you had two directories 'data' and 'Data' which I imagine could cause confusion.
RE: Instalation Problem
by Pawel on Tuesday July 12th 2011, 12:28
No i only copied them, I still have two directories - data and Data. It looks like wine searches files only in the second one.

RE: Instalation Problem
by William J May on Monday January 25th 2010, 5:57
This error also appears with 'Total War: Medieval'
I didn't get an error with 'TW: Rome - Gold Edition' CD

It seems to be something with the install program crapping out during CD swap???
Whenever I try to install 'TW: Medieval' it always pops up. Usually during CD swap, but not always. (Wine 1.1.36)

Anyone filed a bug report?

Game crashes everytime loading the battle
by Rafael Alvarez Basso on Thursday May 29th 2008, 0:54
Anytime I try to enter a battle the game crashes with the following message:

Generic Error: Insufficient video memory to load requested texture set.

This problem is reported in Bugs 13501 and 13118.

I am using wine v1.0-rc2, and running Rome Total War v1.5.

Jordan submitted a test result using the same version, but without this problem, so there may be some workaround.

If anyone is running this game with the same wine version, I would appreciate a comment about it. A "how to" describing the installation and configuration is REALLY wanted too.
RE: Game crashes everytime loading the battle
by Jordan on Sunday June 1st 2008, 21:14
I reinstalled the game, still had no problems with installation, but I now have the same problem with the battles. So I'd have to revise to bronze, really.

The primary issue seems to be dealing with video cards. I'm using a Geforce 7150 with the drivers enabled through ubuntu.

My graphic config in Wine: Allow DirectX. and Allow Window manger control, Allow Pixel shader with Hardware Vertex shader support, and 96 dpi screen resolution.

Bear with me please, as I now have to go through another computer for internet access.
RE: Game crashes everytime loading the battle
by Pat on Thursday January 1st 2009, 11:30
You can fix this error, by changing video option in the Rome - Total War menu. select lower video options, and go through the advanced menu and choose lower options there as well. If you set it low enough, you will get by this error, haven't played with the best balance that will still let me use the battle screen. Also you can choose 16 bit or 32 bit mode, my guess is that 32 bit would actually be better as X can't switch between modes, so you are running in 32 bit probably anyways.

I was using an Nvidia 8300, and wine 1.01.
Almost works perfectly
by Mike Pristave on Sunday March 30th 2008, 20:52
The game runs smoothly, mods work, etc.

There is one major issue, the mouse will not go to the bottom of the screen while on the campaign map. It can only go like 4/5 down the screen and this makes it so that I can't press any of the lower buttons on the interface. I can't figure out how to fix this issue....
RE: Almost works perfectly

by Sviat on Thursday February 3rd 2011, 19:31
I have solved this problem in the next way(for my 1280x800 laptop):
-I switched the resolution to 1024x768 in System->Preferences->Monitors

-lunched the windowed game with command:
wine explorer /desktop=game,1024x768 /path/to/RomeTW.exe

-switched ingame video options to 1024x768x32

And problem gone...
Rome:
by Dave on Tuesday March 4th 2008, 11:52
I'd like to share my experiences with Rome:Total War and Wine. If whoever is working on this needs more info, please feel free to email me with instructions.

wine version 0.9.55
ubuntu version 7.10
Rome full version

1.I was not able to install until I upgraded WINE. Attempting to run ROME with the cedega debug utility gave multiple errors like this:

0002:fixme:win32:DEVICE_Open Unknown/unsupported VxD SecDrv04.VxD. Try --winver nt40 or win31 !
Killed

SecDrv.sys is a (copy protection?) file that lives in the root of a number of games. I tried copying it to windows/system32, the root of the ROME directory, etc. no luck. What seemed to fix this is the winedevice executable which runs the secdrv.vxd.

2.Once that was fixed, all of my startup crashes had to do with screen resolution. As long as the ROME campaign map and the ROME battle map and my desktop are all set to 1024x768x32bpp ROME runs.

3.However .... it's still slow as peanut butter. I've set all of the graphic options in ROME to their lowest levels and it's still barely playable. If anyone has any thoughts on how to speed this up, please let me know.
RE: Rome:
by Keith on Tuesday March 4th 2008, 13:06
As a game engine it remains tricky as hell and has been the most difficult to get working. Seen people rate this gold but that's way over what it really deserves silver or bronze till wine gets some optimization in after version 1.0
