HowTo / Notes

HOWTO work around minimizing maximizing

Since the last wine version tested with this program was 1.3.23, I would suggest you get this version, and see if that fixes any of your problems.

If you use a newer version, or one that's not listed in the Tests section, post it as a test, not a question, as most of us are not using the version you are.

Personally, I am on Debian 2.6.32-5-amd64, using wine version 1.1.42. I use Gnome as my manager (mentioned that because some other window managers do not work well for me) I have a NVidia 7300 GT with 512 memory.

I have had not much luck with running the 1.2.x or 1.3.x versions. I have not had to install any DirectX stuff. Just the basics, from the notes.


As of July 16th and before I have never needed Directx9 installed to play perfectworld. This could just be my setup. The game runs so smoothly I don't see a need for directx9

Most of you have noticed that minimizing and maximizing the Perfect World game client really is not any option because it mashes the icons inside the game to one side or the other.

A really simple solution...

Open your wine configuration, click on the graphics tab, add a check mark in "Emulate a Virtual Desktop" set the resolution that you want. My linux desktop is set at 1280 x 1024 res. I set my Virtual Desktop to 1280 x 975.

This was really the final bug that I have seen for the game everything is super smooth running.

I have tested this simple solution on basically all wine versions.

I did not have to install direct x 9. Although you do need to install specific fonts that are stated in an earlier post for the text to show up correctly. The chinese packs are needed no matter what because the game will be wicked slow if you dont have them.

I am using a distro that is built upon ubuntu jaunty called Linux Mint 7. I have tried this on the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Mint 7. Really this should work for everyone its a simple solution that was there the entire time :)


HOWTO

BEFORE INSTALLING PERFECT WORLD

*Note: If installing on Gentoo, please use this statement before running wine install.exe.  Use  'export LC_CTYPE=en_US.utf8'

Wine configuration:

Windows -> "Windows XP"
Allow Pixel Shader "enable"
Audio only ALSA

Regedit configuration:

Add "Direct3D" key to HKEY_CURRENT_USR -> Software -> Wine
Add the following String Values to the Direct3D key:


DirectDrawRenderer                          "opengl"
Nonpower2Mode
                                "repack"
OffscreenRenderingMode                   "fbo"
PixelShaderMode
                                "enabled"
RenderTargetLockMode                     "auto"
UseGLSL                                             "disabled"
VideoMemorySize                               "512"            < Edit this line to indicate the size of your video memory

Or download a .reg file that can be imported into your configuration, pwi.reg . You will still need to edit the file before importing, to modify your video memory size.

Winetricks is a script created by Dan Kegel, to download and install various Windows packages.  Some you might need to install Perfect World. Like the chinese language fonts
You can get it from the link below.   Just right click and save it in your .wine directory.

Winetricks

After that:
Run winetricks with:

sh ~/.wine/winetricks

 

You will have to install VCRUN6 via Winetricks. (date added: 4/7/2011)

Performance:

If your game is slow, you may need to disable the option "Soften" within Perfect World Setup


modified 12/15/2010

Updating (4/6/2011)

After Updating the game, Verify, the files.  Updating may take 15 minutes, but further problems may be avioded if you Verify the installation afterwards.


Utility Scripts

I've made a couple of scripts to find or kill wine applications, instead of rebooting the computer by force. (which I used to do, before using these scripts. Each of these scripts should be run in a terminal window, which you should be able to get to. On Ubuntu (my system), you can find a terminal by going thru Applications-->Accessories-->Terminal. You can also run by using Alt-F2, or by logging in to another instance, by using CTRL-ALT-Fx (where x is 1-9).

Just copy these scripts to your home directory. Doesn't matter where you keep them, just be sure they are on an executable path. You will also, have to make them executable by doing this after you download them. [chmod +x (name of file)] (do not type [ or < or >).

findwine. This script will list all occurance of C: and the program wine. (added 01/03/2011)

killwine. This script will kill all occurances of C: and the program wine. (added 01/03/2011)

If you have mutltiple wine programs running, the killwine will kill it.

Thanks for your quick review of this game. I like MMORPG games because you play with live players all over the world and everyone can have their own strategies and techniques of the game that can be learned by watching how this player acts. Your game seems interesting in the description and screenshot, I think I'll try to play it. Speaking of the screenshot, it turned out to be of sufficient quality, I think you should share it. I managed to find there about a thousand of such posts and they were all posted on accounts with about 57 thousand subscribers! I am sure their authors used soclikes.com/buy-instagram-followers in order to wind up subscribers.
A wonderful solution to your problems

It is Cathodic Protection is the title here on the site and below it there is an image of this pipeline. There should be some data related to it so we could make the context properly. I took www.bestessays-uk.org/case-study last night. With this information I cannot get what it is exactly because there is no explanation.
