Poor performance
 
My 2 cents for ultra poor performance -

On a 5 year old laptop, also have embedded Intel 4000 video.

On Linux Mint checked under 'Driver Manager'
Had to make sure Intel microcode drivers were 'activated'.
Sorry, can't advise how that exists with other systems.

Major updates I think tended to reset this and would find the game running at terrible FPS. Switching it back and it was reasonable.

Still no powerhouse, but can play most zone without major issue.

no sound fx or music
 
Hello everyone

im having some problems with being away for a few months and coming back to no sound
no sound issue is localized to only EQ
if anyone know the sound requirements i will investigate in meeting those
also my script to start looks like

Quote:

#!/bin/bash
~/mimd/p99mimd &
echo $! >/tmp/p99middle.pid
cd "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/EQEmu"
WINEPREFIX="${HOME}/.wine" wine eqgame.exe patchme 2>/dev/null
kill -9 $(cat /tmp/p99middle.pid)
the pastebin is my log upto character screen where i should be able to hear my melee guy swing
https://pastebin.com/Qh8xT2GJ

also my eqclient.ini says Sound=TRUE

Hi, i'm a new linux user, and i copied over my install from windows inside the wine directory, but i cant figure out how to create a desktop shortcut for eqgame.exe, i'm using linux mint 19.

Hi there! Idk mint but it should be the same.
Make a new file on your desktop with .sh at the end of the name. Edit the file with a text editor.
Code:

cd "/home/username/.wine/yourEQfolder" && wine eqgame.exe patchme
Let me know if not.

so i was able to create the shortcut like this by substituting with my path, but when i try to launch i get an error: "there was an error launching this application" (that's a translation from my native language)

i also tried making a launcher following the tutorial on https://superuser.com/questions/1219...-mint-18-or-up, but that didnt work either.

I did name it EQ.Desktop, didnt work, and i'm noob to the point i don't really know what +x means.

"+x" is UNIX-speak for "add executable permissions to the file". UNIX controls which users on your computer can access which files in three ways: it can let a use read (R), write (ie modify; W), or execute (ie. run; X) that file.

When you right-click on the file and choose properties, or at the command line by using the "chmod" command, you can change which permissions a user has on a file. When you do it at the command line, you use pluses and minuses to add/remove permissions. For instance "chmod a+x foo.file" would give ("+") execute ("x") permissions to all ("a") users on foo.file.

To follow up on this, a while back most linux distributions require .desktop files to be executable or they would not show up as shortcuts. It is a security thing.

.sh files always needed to be executable.

Sorry for the shorthand.
