    DAOC in Wine

    I'm wanting to play some Dark Age of Camelot for old times sake, but I can't find anything on the boards about how it works in the newest version of wine. Winehq reports that it works well under the latest version, but I was wondering if anyone could confirm this with personal experience before I go through the process of dredging out my old disks (all 8 of them :-/) and trying the install myself.

    Thanks,
    Flubs

    <sigh> still haven't made that leap myself yet. Most of what I've read so far hasn't been that promising, but I'll probably give it a try again this week-end.

    Re: DAOC in Wine

    I've heard that the CD install method is broken..

    Has anyone found a way to run them? I see lots of reports of how it runs reasonably well, but no information on how to make it run in the first place.

    Have you checked Wine's AppDB entry for the game? All of the testing reported there is personal experience:
    http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iAppId=443
    The base version doesn't have any ratings at all, but the expansions packs have very good ratings.

    I dunno, i'm dubious whether anything with a '1.2MB/second memory leak' can be said to be highly playable.

    That leak existed 20 minor revisions ago in Wine and was most likely due to the Nvidia driver that was being used at the time. Considering the number of improvements in Wine and the Nvidia driver since then, I'd say it is worth trying it again.

    Re: DAOC in Wine

    Currently running DAoC, Labyrinth client, in WINE, with the latest WINE version and in 7.10. It worked perfectly with one version back of WINE in 7.04.
    However, the cursor flickers.. in 7.04 this meant the cursor was hard to see. Now it's more or less invisible, on rare occasions it flickers for an instant but is usually absent, where before it was visible maybe 50% of the time.
    I found a patch at http://comptune.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=253 that claims to be able to correct it, but I do not know how to "copy it to your wine folder" - it gives me permission denied that I don't know how to get past, so i'm stuck on that step.

    Re: DAOC in Wine

    That patch was for Wine 0.9.24 compiled from source, not the current version of Wine installed through a precompiled package. You might try downloading the Wine source and applying the patch to it, but considering the current Wine is more than 20 revisions newer than the version the patch was designed for, it might just break things instead of fixing them. Not to mention you'll have to deal with the hassle of compiling it and not being able to update using Wine packages anymore.
