    Post QuakeLive in Wine 1.1.15

    QuakeLive works now fullscreen, but disconnects after a few mins...

    Be sure to set your game to play in fullscreen. It disconnects me before the practice match can end.

    Well, I managed to get 95% of QuakeLive working.

    Here's the brief rundown:

    I grabbed a bunch of winetricks
    (EDIT: It now works without DX9)

    Code:
     $sh winetricks msxml3 dotnet20 gdiplus riched20 riched30 vcrun2005sp1

    And copied the following from a windows XP installation of mine (EDIT: no longer needed?):

    * secur32.dll
    * dnsapi.dll
    * rpcrt4.dll

    and stuck them in my .wine/drive_c/windows/system32 directory. You also have to go into winecfg and set library overrides for secur32, dnsapi, and rpcrt4 (`native then builtin' will do)


    Then I installed Firefox 3.0.6 and Flash Player 10. Then installed the QuakeLiveNP.msi with the following command:

    Code:
    wine msiexec.exe /i QuakeLiveNP.msi
    I also had to nab an update for PunkBuster.

    Viola!


    The game grabs the mouse, and the sound works (you can hear mouse-over effects)... but the video isn't coming through yet...

    Have you tried running Firefox under wine? I'd be interested in seeing this work. Good info, btw.

    Edit: I think I mis-read. IGNORE ME.

    Seems to work now if you use Fullscreen. But I keep getting disconnected before the practice match can end.

    Still happens for me (May 2009, Wine 1.1.20). I cannot finish the training game because it interrupts.

    I followed the instructions here: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...sion&iId=15796
