What works

Installation is flawless after Gecko install component is finished (which is initiated automatically).

Running the program works great.

What does not

Running Apprentice outside of its home directory doesn't work so hot. Easy to fix by running "cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Apprentice" before running "wine Appr.exe".

The chat window sits in a different window than the main application. Easy to fix by moving it to the right side of the play window and using alt+tab to switch between them.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Not much. Perhaps some of the keyboard shortcuts, since I don't know all of them.

HowTo / Notes

WARNING

Apprentice has to be run from the game path, i.e.:

$ cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Apprentice

$ wine Appr.exe

otherwise there will be a runtime error at start.

HOWTO

Getting the files:

All the files can be downloaded here

You will also need unzip to install the Future Sight Patch

If the current "full download" version already includes all sets up to the latest, you can jump the patching steps.

Direct link downloads:
  1. Apprentice 1.46 - link
  2. Future Sight Patch - link

Steps:

Put the downloaded files in your home -> ~/

Note: Lines that start with $ are shell commands

Start the installation process:

$ cd

$ wine Apprentice.exe

Installation will require Gecko (Mozilla HTML engine) to be downloaded and installed. When prompted make sure you click Install

If you are not prompted about Gecko move or backup your ~/.wine folder to something like ~/.wine.old_bkp and try again with a fresh install (as fresh install I mean deleting the ~/.wine folder after backup, not reinstalling wine on you system). If you already did this and it didn't work try to install Gecko manually (sorry but I couldn't find an how-to on this).

After downloading you will find an WinRAR self-extracting archive. Change the destination to whatever fits you better. For this HOW-TO it will be used the default folder "C:\Program Files\Apprentice"

Ignore any errors that might pop-up in your console

You will now have Apprentice installed in your ~/.wine folder. If you used the default settings you can find the Apprentice folder in ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Apprentice

Now lets install the Future Sight Patch

$ cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Apprentice

$ unzip -o ~/future_sight_patch.zip

You now have Apprentice ready to be played.

A big note here: You need to do the following to run the game:

If you are in the folder where we unzipped the patch then simply run:

$ wine Appr.exe

If you are anywhere else you need to enter the Apprentice folder first:

$ cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Apprentice

and then

$ wine Appr.exe

If you launch the game from other folder with a command line like:

$ wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Apprentice/Appr.exe

You will get the following or a similar error: Runtime error 217 at 0009943B

Also change or delete the desktop file created by wine installation process. That link might not work.

Make sure it changes to the directory mentioned before and runs Appr.exe from there.

If you did everything right you will now have Apprentice on your screen.

Troubleshooting:

The only known problem (so far) is the message window that doesn't anchor to the main window. You can work around that by resizing Apprentice window and placing the message window below. Check the screenshot for tip on window arrangement.
