MU Online and other online games


I am going to run game club on Linux. Most games does work on Linux perfectly using cedega. But I can't run most popular online game MU Online. This game provides about 40% of income.
You can download it free on www.muonline.com, www.muonline.co.uk.

Please, help me to run this game on Linux.
Also I am interested in KalOnline(www.KalOnline.com) and LineAge (la2.starnet.md, lineage2.ru)

Yeah! It works at last!

Last version of Wine and last version of Cedega can run MU Online perfectly except of one bug. On SUSE 9.2 I can't see any fonts (wine and cedega). On Gentoo (tried cedega only) I can see subscriptions of items but font is so ugly so I can't read it... just guess. I tried to install IE6 in wine using sidenet config. No result

Can anyone help me how to fix ugly unreadable fonts in games?
I have this bug not only in mu online, but MU Online is not playable without item subscriptions

In the past few days I also got MU Online working under wine. I've heard windows users have the same font problem when using high resolutions, so it is not wine related. But I think I might fix it, so I'll try a few hacks...

PS: Maybe you would like to see this topic, if you understand Romanian: here.

/later
Also I've solved the font problem this morning. I will make a How To in both English and Romanian, I will supply a link in the next few days.

I did not find answer how to fix fonts problem. Please, post here where can I fix it. I was waiting for this moment for a long time and unreadable fonts is the last step!!! On your screenshot there is good readable font.


PS: How can I grab screenshot in OpenGL applications?

About the fonts, I can't reproduse the solution, so I didn't find a fix after all.
You can take screen shots when you are in the game usign the "Print Screen" key.

What version of the client you use?

You can download it on many sites:
http://muonline.com
http://muonline.co.uk
http://mu.starnet.md


When game swtiches to full screen it reports error "can't release DC..." with cedega. With wine no error. But anyway fonts are broken. I did try ot on SUSE 9.1 and Gentoo.

Mu online works on Linux using WINE/Cedega.
The only problem is fonts.
Does anybody have good fonts on item subscription in the game?
