Additional Comments

Installed with directions provided by Bruce under Wine 1.4, no change after upgrade to Wine 1.6. Actually runs longer than directly under Windows XP SP3 with same hardware, before memory leak in the client itself causes crashing (both Windows and Wine environment eventually crashes due to "segmentation violation"); say again, There client is more stable under Wine than under Windows XP.

HowTo / Notes

Installation
Download: http://webapps.there.com/download/

The There client will work 'out of the box', but very broken.
To get it working almost flawlessly, follow these directions.

These commands will fix most issues, they can be done before or after installing There:
  • export WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-there
  • export WINEARCH=win32
  • winetricks ie7 (Note: ie6 and ie8 will work, but the map doesn't work in ie6 and ie8 is much slower)
  • winetricks msxml3 (required for most there.com pages to work in IE)
  • winetricks flash (required for much of the UI)
  • winetricks d3dx9_36 (required to use DX9 renderer)

To get sound systems working:
  1. Get l3codeca.acm (installing Windows Media Player will put it in system32)
  2. In C:\windows\system32, rename l3codeca.acm to winemp3.acm, replacing the original (you may want to back it up)
  3. In winecfg > Libraries, override winemp3.acm

In the command for the created desktop launcher, remove the backslashes from -U and -l.

Change the renderer to OGL for best performance and compatibility. This can be done with the in-game settings (There > Settings > Audio/Video > Renderer > OpenGL) or the ThereTweaker (default: C:\Makena\There\ThereClient\Resources\dlls\theretweaker.exe).
