Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited not working no matter what I do


I've recently bought The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, and I can't get it to work with wine no matter what I do. I've followed this tutorial, which just gives me a white screen when I run the installation exe, I've run the script from POL, which gives me the same white screen when I run the exe, and I've tried running it with just wine, giving me the same result. I've tried using opengl in the "display" tab on play on linux, which does't do anything. I've tried installing some components such as vcrun, doesn't help. I've reinstalled play on linux and wine, didn't do anything. And I've tried installing steam and then installing the elder scrolls online from steam and it doesn't do anything.

"playonlinux.log" from installation script: http://paste.ubuntu.com/11549385/

"playonlinux.log" from this video: http://paste.ubuntu.com/11549531/

When I start up the installation exe it will bring up a window that looks like this (sometimes the text doesn't show up) or bring up a crash dialog that looks like this. Then When I press "go" or the blank button depending on whether or not the text decides to show up, it will bring up a fullscreen white window and then it will shrink down and freeze, not doing anything or showing anything. Sometimes it will bring up a window like this when I press "go", frozen, saying "play on linux is installing your application."

I'm using the latest version of Manjaro, just updated. And I'm using the "video-catalyst" proprietary drivers. Note that I did get it working with my laptop by just running "wine Install_ESO.exe" and it worked fine. The only difference is the hardware and the drivers, both are running manjaro. Does it only work with open-source drivers?

If any of you have any help, I'd appreciate it. If there is any log files you need I can provide them.

Hi, I am not sure what you mean by this comment - you got it working? If it was working then what is the problem? Or did it not actually work properly?

I have found that many POL installs have not worked without some fiddling. The most successful I have been with Wine is for Steam specifically. I installed Oblivion using POL - this created a shortcut to Steam for Windows. Now when I install a new game through POL, I launch it via the Oblivion-created Steam shortcut. No idea why this works but it does and it saves having to active Steam for every POL installation.

Well, what I was trying to say was that it worked with my laptop, but not my desktop. I was thinking it would narrow down the issue. I ended up disabling glsl support and it worked. It had something to do with my drivers I think, I had the open source drivers for my laptop and the amd catalyst proprietary drivers for my desktop. Anyway, I do have it working now.

Ok, I see - as far as I know nVidia drivers work better in Linux, but good that you got it working in the end. How is performance?
