What works

What works

Installation.

The licence agreement during installation in French and German ( Please note that I have not taken French since high school so I am out of practice but the text is legible characters and I could work my way through the reading. The German version appears to the eye to be legible and according to a friend that like me and French, took German back in high school, says that the text was not garbled and indeed legible. )


What does not


What does not

Although the installation works, the licence agreement in English is garbled. During application removal there is garbled text denoting the files being removed.

 Both the 'Benchmark' and 'Demonstration' set to either 'low' or 'high' modes load but fail with error=3000. Selecting the 'loop' option fails the same.

 Selecting German or French as language instead of English during installation does not make a difference of the application crashing with the error=3000.

Additional Comments

Additional Comments Although the official benchmark utility for Final Fantasy has failed to function properly in Wine-1.1.28 on Ubuntu Jaunty( 9.04 ), the application itself is not a requirement to install and run Final Fantasy XI. Using the same system hardware/software installation of the Final Fantasy XI online retail game has proved to work out-of-box with great runtime performance results.

HowTo / Notes

HOUSEWORK

Going to perform some house work here the next few days as a lot of this information is outdated and could easily be condensed and/or eliminated altogether. If anything, having everything neat and trim will make me happy and no doubt fellow viewers interested in getting Final Fantasy XI up and running via Wine will appreciate as well.

HOWTO

Download the program. The program can be found at http://www.playonline.com/ff11us/download/media/benchmark01.html?pageID=media.

Install and run the program. To get optimal performance for the benchmark tests, disable all debug messages. To do this, type in "WINEDEBUG="-all" wine "/path/to/FFXiBench3.exe"".

NOTE: Official Benchmark 3

The Final Fantasy XI Official Benchmark utility is not a required application to install and run Final Fantasy XI.

 

However, what the utility does offer is insight into the potential performance your system may have during game-play.

Although not a requirement, having this application run flawlessly would be beneficial to not only players of Finally Fantasy XI via Wine, but Wine itself would bennefit in obtaining the ability to smoothly run this utility. No doubt there are other applications that will benefit from the lessens learned getting this application to work.

There are a few results from older versions of Wine on older versions of operating systems that place this application as gold and performing the task the application was built to do. Tests using more recent versions of Wine upon newer versions of operating systems however appear to fail. This may be indicating that some kind of regression may have taken place within Wine. Then again, the operating system version used for testing may have played role into whether or not this application works. Something to keep in mind given the recent overhall the Xorg team has performed to the X11 window manager, which in turn effects all Linux/Unix operating system distributions that use the latest X11 window manager.

seems to have the benchmark still, sha1sum

My scores:
7300 on an i7 920 with a GT 240 running Wine-1.2rc6
9900 on an e8400 with a GT 220 running Vista 64

Scores varied by 200 or so between runs on Vista.

Be sure to check 'Loop' when running the benchmark
or it will exit without telling your score if you're
not around when it finishes.
