Game fails to load content over what seems to be a path conversion issue

Post by lecapitaine » Sat Nov 21, 2020 1:30 pm

PlayOnLinux debug log attached. The same happens on plain Wine.

Using Ubuntu 20.04.1, tried with latest stable and staging. The game is Crazy Taxi 3 for Windows. Note that my question is probably well into XY problem territory.

The way I see it, the game tries to load the Media/ directory in its own directory, but Wine interprets that as my system's media/ directory, that is Z:\. I'm sure there's a good reason for this behaviour, so I'd like to know if there's some kind of workaround. I figure what I'm looking for is a way to prevent Wine from converting paths in the first place for this one executable.

Are you actually running the game from its directory? Like 'cd .wine/drive_c/Program Files...' first? Also getting an actual log could help.
