Ugh, so frustrated with this...(Wine Gaming Problem)


Okay.

I've been using winex to run Diablo II for months. It's worked fine. Instead of installing it onto linux, i simply coppied the folder from a windows drive over to linux...and it has always ran great. Well, I found a tutorial on how to actually install it with cedega (winex)...on to linux, so i decided to go ahead and try it. It worked fine.

Now the thing is, I can't run diablo at all! Not the copied folder, or the newly installed one! I have no idea what happened, but I've tried several things, including re-installing cedega. I've had no luck, and this sucks. I spend a ton of my time on the comp playing that game, and now I can't even get it working.

What happens is -

I type the command in.
It runs
I see the Blizzard logo
Then the Diablo logo

And next the screen flashes (like normal), about to go to the main menu, where you login, but instead it just stays as a black screen. I can still hear the game music, but it just stops at a black screen. I then have to kill the process.

I don't understand what could have possibly happened. Where are all the wine config files located? How can I completely erase wine, reinstall it, to see if that works.

I'm so lost...and it's very annoying. If I can't figure it out I'll probably just go to windows. It took me so long to get my linux desktop how I wanted it, and it's great...but i really dont want to start all over...once i finally got it how i wanted it.

Help apreciated.

did you change screen resolution? you need to add that resolution to /etc/X11/XF86Config if you did.

edit: please explain better in the title, not just "omg this sux" thanks.

I did mess with the resolution once, but i believe that was when I was trying to fix it...

I don't think that's the problem though =\

I checked the conf..and the resolution is in there.

I think it's some sort of wine configuration problem, or something.

for wine settings

check you home dir ~/.wine it's been a while but im pretty sure wine keeps all of its settings there...

if not
just cd /
find -name *wine*

u may get a lot of results, but this should at least help you find out where the files / folders are
also, I know that wine logs, check your wine settings, find out where your logging too, this could also help you out greatly

what video card do you use ?
maybe try to reinstall the video drivers ? altought i dont think it would do much...
odds are you missed deleting something before you reinstalled wine and D2... I had mine working for a long time under linux and never ran into this ...

I fixed it !!!

I have NO idea what was wrong, but I ended up manually deleting all of the wine directories and files, and reinstalling it. That finally fixed it .

same problem

I've been having the exact same problem with a fresh install of diablo II using cedega and slackware (newest versions of both)
I get all the intro movies and whatnot just fine, then when I should get the menu thing in diablo I get just a blank screen.
I was thinking it's probably a resolution problem, but how do go about fixing it? can I force diablo II to open at a smaller resolution somehow?

got it working

I uninstalled diablo II, and reinstalled it, and picked the 2d option after the diablo video test, it all works fine now.
I'm guessing I would need new drivers to get 3d, but this works just fine for now.
