View Full Version : Asheron's Call Free Trial Under Wine

July 15th, 2007, 03:09 AM
I read that Asheron's Call is listed as "Platinum" for Wine...so tried it but couln't get past the installer b/c it says it needs IE6 or above to install...I tried agent switcher, no luck. Anyone know how I can "trick" it into thinking it's using IE? How are they listing it as Platinum?

Is the entry that lists it as Platinum. It is for WINE 0.9.33 version on Fedora Core 6 x86_64. It also lists some things he had to do to get it to run.

So the IE install error doesn't occur in Fedora I take it. I can't find anymore info...ah well

If you have to meet prequisites outside the realm of a normal install then it isn't platinum ><

I know this is a bit of an old post, but as mentioned here (http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?versionId=469) IE6 sp1 installs without a problem. I installed the AC trial without a problem after installing IE6 sp1. I did not do anything beyond installing IE6 sp2, and did not even attempt to get IE to run. I am still testing gameplay further for AC.

I'm still having issues with lack of sound on AC. I can get into game-play just fine, however, no sound is ever initiated - the telltale tweaking noise whenever I start Wine associated materials, including 'Configure Wine' itself.

I might be having this same issue with Steam, as the audio initialization noise is absent. Although I have had no need for an audio feedback. Well, I'm downloading and installing Bioshock as I type, so we will see how that turns out.
