Selected Test Results

What works

* patcher (with some quick fixes)

* Login screen

* Game (everything!)

Specifics:

You will need a copy of MFC42.dll from a real copy of Windows XP. I simply registered it with 'wine regsvr32 [path-to-dll]

The patcher will then work. You will need to go to settings and disable sound, otherwise "winmm.dll" reports an error. Im working on a fix for this. If you have a windows install CD / ISO, use VMware to install and update Ragnarok, then copy the entire folder to your WINE ragnarok folder. This is a last resort if the patcher simply wont connect.

What does not

Sound. Disable it in the setup, or else winmm.dll fails.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Private servers. I assume they'll work fine, however. Im getting over 80 FPS on ragnarok, it's 100% playable. Only flaw is no sound. Email me if you need more help getting it to work. (pawsdarmak@gmail.com)

HowTo / Notes

Common Problems
  • Game starts with fatal error and closes.
You need vcrun2008 for gameplay work. If you execute this without vcrun2008, your instalation can be corrupt (the cause is unknow).
(This does not apply to openpatcher).
  • Patcher not shows information of update or receives error
Install wine gecko package (the package name varies according with your distribution). you can optionally install ie6 with winetricks instead of wine gecko package. Both work well.
  • The game is slow
Download this file and add to wine registry:

$ regedit boost.reg
(The performance gain is high.)
  • Tweaks in game for performance:
    • Simplify aura with /aura command
    • Simplify effects with /mineffect command, or use /effect for disable all effects.
    • Disable fog with /fog command
