Guide updated to note that game now works again with latest wine! (Wine 5.7 broke it)

Have you had any luck getting the T3A: Online working? I can't seem to get any of the multiplayer options working. Online freezes my game, while Network takes me to an empty lobby.

I have the exact issue as well.

I don't know if it's appropriate to post this here, but I found a way to run the Age of the Ring mod on Linux and created a little writeup on how I did it: https://www.reddit.c...od_51_on_linux/

 

I hope this is helpful for some people :)

Try rebooting your computer - or alternatively you can install patch 1.05 from the zip manually: https://www.moddb.co.../bfme-patch-105

Hi, I have managed to run RotWK thanks to all of you.

But there is a problem, when I try to patch using the 2.02 Launcher it says "Could not switch file asset.dat" leaving the game with 2.01. Anyone has the same problem?

Thanks

Hello,

Firstly, many thanks for the great work!  I never thought I would be able to play this game again, let alone under Linux!

 

Everything works brilliantly, with only a Multiplayer issue to resolve.  When selecting Multiplayer, I get a warning that a 'Windows XP SP2' firewall is enabled each time.  I can get online, join and start a game without issue.

 

However, I get a Synch error after a couple of minutes, which is I assume because something is being blocked somewhere.

 

Have followed the guides to ensure Options.ini is correct, installed via Lutris, port 16000 is forwarded, tried upnp as well but same issue.  No software Firewall running (ufw, firewalld etc.)

 

Would appreciate any thoughts on this one, and please keep up the good work!

Hello,
 
I have installed BFME 2 + RotWK (both special edition extension packs)  on Linux Mint 20.1, the game is running well on first look but when i tried to run SKIRMISH, there are not not army/figures textures.  Same behavior for both games, all patches.. 
 
Now I have patches which I am used to play on windows PC : RotWK 2.02 version 8.2.0. Please can you help me solve this problem?
