View Full Version : Wine Tales of Pirates

August 3rd, 2007, 06:20 AM
so has anyone gotten tales of pirates to actually run with a recent version of wine and feisty... i can get it to install, and get it to load the updater window... but when i click on enter game, it closes out.

i've checked the appdb and people have similar problems though thiers were fixed with running as root wich didnt help for me... i havent tried the dll due to the fact that i dont have a windows install and im not sure if its one of those dlls i can just download and slap on there... also it aparently didnt help other poeple much anyways...

im sure its gotta be playable because i've seen screenshots of it being done, and others report on appdb that it works, so anyone with any luck that could share how they got it going would be great

Did you try using an older version of Wine? It appears the game worked fine before version 0.9.37.

and thats what i was totally afraid of... gonna be one hell of a hassle to try and find an old version and compile manually... maybe ill just wait and see if they fix teh problem in later releases :)

You can get a precompiled deb package from the Wine repositories:

Did you it work? I'm using wine too and I'm even trying it on Cedega but on Cedega it crashes, and on wine I can't see the cursor >.< ah yes I have a Nvidia card, and it has 3d acceleration on (yet on Cedega it says it isn't)

Not that I doubt you, but if Cedega says you don't have 3D acceleration, then I think we need to start with your video card/drivers as the source of your problem. However, just to possibly confirm that, what does it say in the terminal when you try to run Tales of Pirates?

When I type "cedega tales of pirates" it says:

/usr/lib/transgaming_cedega/gddb.py:19: RuntimeWarning: Python C API version mismatch for module gddb_parser: This Python has API version 1013, module gddb_parser has version 1012.
import gddb_parser

Then it starts Cedega and the window crashes with the msg in the terminal saying:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/transgaming_cedega/Point2Play_gui.py", line 2377, in <module>

And thanks Cogadh for helping me out, I installed ubuntu all alone and all the other basic stuff alone "literally speaking"

For me it started when i turned off the sound on the winecfg.
No sound -> it started.
The main problem is that I can't see the characters. I see everything, even the weapons but not the character itself.
It's a peaty because my daughter can't play on ubuntu.
By the way i'm still using Feisty (hope to upgrade this week) and wine is 0.9.47.

Have managed to fix my problem by selecting the Vertex shader suport by Hardware. Before it was None.
See the pic:

But I have another issue. The wallpaper (if i called so) behind the character selector turned blue. I cannot see the picture.

BIG EDIT: Sound works. Changed sound to ESD and it's great.:lolflag:

I installed wine 1.0, the game seems to run fine if i deactivate sound, but it crashes the whole system, I mean, windows-style crash, only thing to do is hard reset.

That's really weird, did you check your error logs?

September 3rd, 2008, 12:37 AM
mm, forgive my n00bness, but where are those logs located?

My winecfg looks like this:




Im usin Wine 1.1.42 and the test results say it should work:

First of all, you really shouldn't resurrect 2 year old threads like this. Wine changes a lot and very quickly so even though you are having a problem with the same game as the subject of this thread, your problem is completely unrelated to the items in this thread.

Second, you really should search the forums before posting, the problem you are having is a very common one (common to every app run in Wine on the current Ubuntu, in fact). Its a simple permissions issue. You need to mark the game's .exe as an executable.

Third, you should never, NEVER run wine using sudo permissions or a root account (http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#head-96bebfa287b4288974de0df23351f278b0d41014). Not only does doing that screw up the current permissions on your .wine directory, it potentially allows harmful Windows malware full access to evey thing on your Linux system, which can do just as much, if not more damage than it can on Windows. Since you have already done this, the best thing to do is delete your .wine directory and start all over again without using root permissions.

Lastly, I have to compliment you on providing some of the best troubleshooting info I've ever seen on these forums. If every forumite posted with the kind of detail you provided, problems would be so much easier to solve.

Solved the problem some minutes ago, my 3D linux games didn't work, and when i repaired those and restarted my computer Tales of Pirates started working also =)

Anyway thank you for your responding on my post, and I'm sorry that I posted it in a old thread.

Peace Fefo :D
