World of Warships freezes at login screen

Post by Echo 8 » Sat Sep 21, 2019 12:36 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to run World of Warships on FreeBSD. I can install it just fine using the classic installer (the Wargaming.net Game Center UI is messed up and is basically unusable) and start it, but it freezes at the login screen and white noise plays from the speakers if the game window has focus. If the game window is in the background and reaches the login screen, the background animation plays fine, but once given focus, it immediately halts and again, white noise.

Environment:
  • FreeBSD 12.0
  • Wine 4.16 with workaround for WoW64 support:
    1. Build the emulators/i386-wine-devel package
    2. Build the emulators/wine-devel package
    3. Install the i386-wine-devel package that was just built (found in /usr/ports/packages/All/)
    4. Extract the wine-devel package to /opt/wine or something
    5. Add /opt/wine/usr/local/bin to $PATH
    6. Before running wine, set the following environment variables:
      • LD_LIBRARY_PATH
      • LD_LIBRARY_PATH_RPATH
      • LD_32_LIBRARY_PATH
      • LD_32_LIBRARY_PATH_RPATH
      • LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH
Terminal output:

Same issue arises if using a custom ports tree that enables building wine with WoW64 support instead of the above workaround.

Updated to Wine 4.17. No change in behaviour.

If I disable audio by setting HKCU\Software\Drivers\Audio in the registry to an empty value, the game does not freeze and allows me to log in. Still crashes if I try to enter a match, though.
