    GameGuard and Hackshield protected games that do not work in Wine

    nProtect GameGuard from INCA Internet is an anti-cheating application that is included in many online games (see list below). It accomplishes its protection features by use of a Windows device driver. Since Windows drivers do not work in wine, GameGuard cannot function with the games it is designed to protect and the game itself will not run in Wine without it.

    PC Games that are known to use GameGuard protection:
    • 2Moons
    • 9Dragons
    • Albatross18
    • Asda Story
    • BOTS
    • Cabal Online
    • Cal Ripken's Real Baseball
    • Counter-Strike Online (Asian market only)
    • Cronous
    • Dance! Online
    • Darkeden
    • Digimon RPG
    • Dragonica Online
    • Drift City
    • Dungeon & Fighter
    • Emil Chronicle Online
    • Exteel
    • FlyFF
    • GameCampus.com - All games from this site use GameGuard
    • Gersang
    • Grand Chase
    • GunBound
    • Gunster
    • GunZ: The Duel
    • Heat Project

    Hackshield from AhnLab is an anti-cheat application similar to GameGuard. As such, it also does not work in Wine (though for technically different reasons) which prevents the games it protects from also working in Wine.

    PC Games that are known to use Hackshield protection:
    • Alliance of Valiant Arms
    • Combat Arms
    • Crossfire
    • Elsworld Taiwan
    • Gunz: The Duel
    • KalOnline
    • Mabinogi
    • MapleStory
    • Point Blank
    • Rappelz
    • Requiem: Bloodmare/Requiem Online
    • RF Online
    • S4 League
    • Shot Online
    • Vindictus
    • WonderKing Online (English version) NOTE - As of June, 2010 this game has been reported to work in Wine, despite still having HackShield. If anyone can confirm that it is indeed working, please reply in this thread.

    You may be able to get some of these games running using a virtual machine like VMWare or VirtualBox, but they will likely never work in Wine as long as they continue to use GameGuard and Hackshield. If anyone knows of any other games that may be using GameGuard and/or Hackshield, please let me know and I will update the list. Additionally, if anyone knows of games currently on the list that no longer use these protection schemes and now do work in Wine, also let me know so that I can remove them.

    NOTE: Due to the questionable legality of private servers, please do not bring them up in this thread. The information in this post really only applies to the use of these games on official servers.

    Re: GameGuard protected games that do not work in Wine

    Hence why asked for people to post corrections to the list. The list is simply all the games I could find that have (or possibly had) GameGuard and should not work because of that. Its entirely possible that the sources I used were inaccurate about whether or not the game still uses GG. According to GameGuard's own website, Silkroad added it back in 2005, but the game has changed a lot since then, so it may not be using it anymore.

    I've stuck and unlocked this thread.
    Do not ask unrelated questions or post useless junk here.
    If I see a bunch of you who can't read/follow instructions I will close it again.

    That said if you have further info to add which is relevant to this topic please by all means post away.

    Re: GameGuard protected games that do not work in Wine

    I added a note for that, but if anyone can confirm that it will definitely work with the official servers, it would be helpful.

    Also, just to repeat what is at the end of the OP, private servers are a legal grey area and shouldn't really be discussed here. Consider them as forbidden on the forums as the discussion of how to obtain and use cracked executables for games or how to obtain pirated copies of games.

    Re: GameGuard protected games that do not work in Wine

    Guys, you are going about it the wrong way. For guys that love those asian rpg games like 2moons, etc. You really should try to play their p-server equivalents. You can eneter in google: dekaron p-server..

    I playe fussion dekaron. It runs fine in linux/ubuntu in my case with wine. Speed could be better, but all works. Why? There is no gameguad rootkit.

    Please don't discuss private servers on UF.
    In most cases they're in a legal grey area and we don't need that kind of thing here.
    We're all fully aware that most can be hacked and played outside of this standard but lets keep if off the forums.
    The games being discussed are in their original form on proper servers.
