What does not

- The text people say doesn't appear above their head. It is only visible in the chat area.

- The cursor looks somewhat damaged.

Additional Comments

I eventually got Silkroad to work partially. I'm running a CRUX box with 1024 MB RAM, 2.8 Ghz P4 and a GF FX5900 XT. The first attempt in running SRO failed because the installer kept on crashing. It seems like this was caused by not enough disk space as it magically worked when I made enough room for it. The next thing where unreadable fonts which I solved by copying the fonts from my WinXP installation although there supposedly is a package containg the needed fonts so you don't need a Windows installation. The thing with the cursor is weird as it looks like a full color image converted to 256 colors resulting in corrupted transparancy.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO Install and Play Silkroad
  1. Make sure that your computer meets the recommended requirements for Silkroad (Pentium 4 or higher, 512MB RAM, 3D and DirectX 9.0b compatible video card, and 3GB of free HDD space) and that you have the necessary drivers for your graphics card.
  2. Follow the instructions at http://www.winehq.org/site/download-deb to add the wine repository, then follow the directions to use Synaptic or Terminal to download and install the package.
  3. Run "winecfg" in terminal (without the quotes) and set compatibility to Windows 98.
  4. Download the Silkroad client and unzip it if you need to. Then run "wine executable.exe" (without quotes and replace executable.exe with the silkroad installer exe)
  5. Run the client either from Applications>Wine>Programs>Joymax>Silkroad or from your Desktop.
  6. Wait for patching to complete.
  7. Hit play.
  8. Vote for Silkroad on the Appdb!
    Depending on your distro and other variables, you may need to build wine from source in order to get Silkroad to work at a nice, usable speed.
    WARNING
    • Make sure you've followed all of the previous instructions correctly and carefully.
    • Some users can't get silkroad to work unless they remove xdg-utils and msttcorefonts (sudo apt-get remove msttcorefonts xdg-utils).
    NOTES
    • If the game runs very slowly or there are graphics issues, try these steps:
      • Match your in-game video resolution with your X resolution so it becomes full screen.
      • Install the latest drivers for your graphics card or switch to the closed-source 3rd party binary drivers (example: nVidia drivers at nvidia.com).
      • Tweak the xorg.conf (/etc/X11/) file and input your monitor's horizontal/vertical frequencies, size, etc.
      • Launch winecfg and in the graphics tab check the box to emulate a virtual desktop and enter a resolution so that Windows applications will run in a window controlled by your windows manager.
      • Disable "bloom effect" and "water reflection" through the in-game graphics option dialog.
    • As of wine 0.9.49 and Silkroad v1.131, guild emblems and character buffs should appear.
    • In-game audio and video settings may not be saved after Silkroad is restarted.
    • If you cannot get Silkroad to work at all, you can copy over the Silkroad folder Windows into ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Silkroad. Make sure that the file names are the same when you copy the files over or rename the files so that you only have one of each file, as Linux is case-sensitive while Windows is not.
    • If Silkroad is launched from Terminal, many errors will be displayed onscreen. Those are normal and can be ignored. Running Silkroad from a desktop launcher or from the launch in the Applications>Wine menu will not show the terminal.
    • The launcher may need to be restarted multiple times till the "Start" button appears or the update starts. This may be solved by doing "hosts gwgt1.joymax.com" before starting the launcher.
    • Fullscreen mode doesn't work properly and changing between fullscreen and windowed mode via alt+enter will result in great graphic glitches.

    If you intend to submit a screenshot, please make sure that it does not have your character details by pressing F12 beforehand. Also make sure you are only taking a screenshot of the Silkroad window, and not the Desktop.
