Game unable to connect to server. Maybe an ActiveX issue?

Post by Moonwave » Sat Oct 31, 2020 3:19 pm

I am attempting to play a private server of the game NexusTK (ancientthreekingdoms.com). AppDB here:
https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager. ... n&iId=3575

I was able to get the game to successfully run in Parallels, but when I try to log in or create a character using Wine, I get a disconnected from server error. I spoke with the devs of the game, and apparently my IP never even attempts to connect when using Wine.

In the Wine AppDB it says that you need to install ActiveX. I wasn't able to successfully follow along with the instructions though. Is there another way to get ActiveX installed into my Wine wrapper?

I am using WS9Wine5.6 and installed the following Winetricks: dotnet35sp1 and vcrun2010. Here is the console output:

Code: Select all

Any ideas on what the issue is with connecting to the game? Is it ActiveX?

Okay, I managed to successfully load the ActiveX .dll file specified in the AppDB. I'm still having the inability to connect to the game server problem, but my Wine output is now different.
