Hey, I'm attempting to run oblivion (as in elder scrolls 4 :rolleyes: ) with playonlinux. Installed and all good, when I go to click play it opens and just crashes ](*,) . No error report. Can't install patch or official expansions for some reason. HELP!!

My Oblivion disc has died. :(

Anyway maybe I can help you at least.

A few questions;

What version of WINE are you using?

What graphics card do you have?

What graphics driver are you using?

Ok, Im on wine wine-1.0.1-174-gc4039bd with playonlinux acting as installer. Got a nvidia Geforce 6something that could handle oblivion on windows, got all drivers running perfect. What happens is when I open 'blivion it gives me the little starter thingamajig, I click play, it changes rez, and dies.

Ok. I have never used PlayOnLinux when installing Oblivion. I always use just WINE. It would really help if I knew exactly what your graphics card was.

I seriously doubt that will help you. You need to tackle any possible hardware issues before anything.

Well firstly, your using a very old version of WINE, and it has some issues with certain cards.

Debian has a very poor reputation with WINE. You would be better off with Ubuntu.

Sorry... I love debian!! I used to use ubuntu, but it's too safe and noobish compared to debian, no offense. I still love ubuntu, I just like debian way more

If Ubuntu is too safe for you, may I suggest trying your l33t skills on Gentoo...

Well then, lets get back to buisiness. Should I update wine or what?

Really it did i swear! :d

On a more serious note, if you would like to use WINE with a decent support base, then I would really suggest switching back to the boring, safe world of Ubuntu.

It's your life. But if you ever want to get Oblivion working in WINE, then now would be the best time to start...
