NA Aion 4.0

Post by pcphantom » Sun Nov 24, 2013 8:58 pm

I'm using Zorin OS 7.1 64-bit with Wine 64-bit.
I'm trying to install Aion 4.0 and get it to run.

I can't install .net framework, it says it's not necessary but I'm thinking that may be what's causing my problems.

I got the installer to download and install and the game to update.
I can get all the way to the part where I click "Play".

Then Aion.bin crashes with 2 errors:
1: Unhandled exception: page fault in 64-bit code (0x00007f3920e3f801).

System information:
Wine build: wine-1.4.1
Platform: x86_64
Host system: Linux
Host version: 3.8.0-33-generic

2: Unhandled exception: divide by zero in 32-bit code (0x00558abb).

System information:
Wine build: wine-1.4.1
Platform: i386 (WOW64)
Host system: Linux
Host version: 3.8.0-33-generic

I can provide more details on the errors if needed.
I'm still messing with it but honestly I'm very new to Linux and Wine so I was wondering if anyone else has gotten this to work in the 64-bit environment and what they had to do to get it to work.

What exactly is "it"? How are you trying to install .NET?
Wine build: wine-1.4.1
Your Wine version is old and no longer supported. Upgrade to at least 1.6.1.

"it":
Open: PlayOnLinux, Configure
Highlight Aion, 3rd tab in says "Install Components" (I assume Zorin's interface for winetricks).
Double clicking any version of dotnet brings up a message telling me I can't install dotnet on Wine 64-bit, that it's not necessary. I read something about forcing it but haven't tried that.
Just now I tried and got the message:

"Error in source
This package does not work on a 64-bit installation"

"wine build"
I have installed Wine 1.7.7, I actually have no idea why 1.4.1 shows up. I never even installed 1.4.1
Zorin does come with Wine integrated, however prior to updating it Wine 1.5.25 is what was on the system.

Just now I tried to install 1.4.1 through the Wine version manager and it ended in some error that now makes it so I can't even view other installation packages for Wine. Trying to get past the error caused "Error in POL_Wine_InstallVersion Unable to find versions: Wine"

Sometimes when I install a program with Wine through PlayOnLinux it installs other versions of Wine with it automatically. This is how I got 1.2.3 installed when I installed Steam through the Software Center.

PlayOnLinux is not supported here. The fact that it often installs obsolete and/or patched versions of Wine is one of the main reasons why.

Straighten out your Wine install first, then try a clean wineprefix with plain Wine. Unless Aion 4.0 is 64 bit, I would suggest creating a 32 bit wineprefix for it, and if it really does need .NET, use winetricks to install it.

Okay so I changed things up a bit.

I am now using straight wine 1.7.10

to change things a bit, I created a 32-bit virtual drive and installed Aion to that drive.
When I installed it, it actually booted to the game screen and all looked great!
Keep in mind the setup file launches the games "launcher" and installs the game from there.

I was super excited until I closed it out.

Aion by default creates a .lnk file for the desktop and launches by executing a bin file with a set of commands.

I've heard other people saying they have it working but I've yet to figure out how they actually launch the game.

I can only assume they don't install and setup a 16gb game every time they play it.

For me, Aion works as of Wine 1.7.x in a 32-bit wineprefix on Debian Jessie. I had to change the VideoMemorySize option in the Wine Regedit to reflect the available memory of my video card, or Aion crashed after a few minutes. That might be your issue, too.
