Advanced Combat Tracker (ACT) 3.1.5 with Neverwinter Plugin for Linux 64-bit

I had a few issues getting wine working with this version. I tried using ACT v2, but the Neverwinter plugin wouldn't work with it because it is using features of the newer .NET 4 runtime.
  • create a directory for your ACT wine installation:
    mkdir /opt/act
  • setup environment variables correctly for winecfg.
    do not create the "app" directory here, wine will create it. Also, I use 32-bit arch because winetricks won't install .NET 4 in a 64-bit environment.
    export WINEPREFIX=/opt/act/app
    export WINEARCH=win32
  • Run winecfg: wine will create the "app" directory
  • grab the latest winetricks script from
    gdiplus_winxp is for this error: System.ArgumentException: Parameter is not valid. System.Drawing.Image.get_FrameDimensionsList()
    winetricks dotnet40
    winetricks gdiplus_winxp
  • download the latest setup file for ACT v3 and run with:
    env WINEPREFIX=/opt/act/app WINEARCH=win32 wine ACTv3-Setup.exe
  • now obtain the latest Neverwinter plugin for ACT. You will need GIT for these steps.
    cd /tmp
    git clone
    cp /tmp/Neverwinter-ACT-Plugin/Neverwinter.cs /opt/act/app/drive_c/Program\ Files
    Otherwise go directly to the github link posted above, click on Neverwinter.cs, and copy/paste the file into a text editor.
  • run ACT with:
    env WINEPREFIX=/opt/act/app WINEARCH=win32 WINEDEBUG=-all wine /opt/act/app/drive_c/Program\ Files/ACT/Advanced\ Combat\ Tracker.exe
  • under plugins tab, select Neverwinter.cs in the program directory to install the plugin
  • In Neverwinter, run "/combatlog 1" to turn on combat logging, and "/combatlog 0" when done testing.
  • log file for Neverwinter current for a 64-bit wine installation is under:
    Program Files (x86)/Perfect World Entertainment/Neverwinter_en/Neverwinter/Live/logs/GameClient/Combatlog.Log
