Having a bit of a problem running EVE on my laptop (As in topic, it's Debian, squeeze 32. eve version is outdated, wanted to update it after I get it running - it's Incursion

Installed using Winetricks (along with d3dx9 modules + corefonts to prevent crashing), it passes the splashscreen and lands on black screen.

The sound is going fine and mouse cursor changes according to the content. The menu itself - doesn't display (GUI and background)

(Laptop itself is running an integrated intel G45 - guaranteed if it'll run, the performance may be abysmal. But hey - you can always set the skill queue)

Additionally, console output has this to tell about this issue:

fixme:d3d_shader:shader_glsl_load_constants >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GL_INVALID_OPERATION (0x502) from glUniform4fvARB @ ../../../dlls/wined3d/glsl_shader.c / 410

until killed.

EDIT: It actually does not. When dumping to a text file, when black screen appeared and I killed it - following lines ended up visible.

So it seems it boots up regardless of the error lines. The screen, however, remains black.

First, do you use the stable wine from the debian repos or the debian-unstable wine packages from winehq?

Try if winetricks vcrun2005 vcrun2008 fixes this. Further, try running it in a virtual desktop by either invoking the wine explorer or setting one in winecfg.

Try to disable glsl, the intel seems to have difficulties with it.

Debian wine is built without --libmpg123 so the old jukebox crash is very likely.

Using Debian repo build of wine, and vcrun2005/2008 are installed. I run it with desktop by default.

Adding UseGLSL=disabled + explorer simply kills it, wine states the game requires shader model 2.0 or higher and doesn't boot at all. So I'd say there's a high chance of the whole issue being knocking on open door - the hardware is simply outdated.

Without explorer it runs like it did before.

On the other hand, I've struck a similar problem with launching several older games that should run perfectly, so those could be connected.

Sorry I'm late in replying... Can I recommend that you grab the source from git and build it? It's a fairly straightforward job if you have the pieces you need, and you can manage Wine nicely with stow once it's built.

apt-get install stow
apt-get install libmpg123-dev libmpg123-0
apt-get install git
apt-get build-dep wine
git clone git:// ~/wine-git
cd ~/wine-git
./configure --with-mpg123
make install prefix=/usr/local/stow/wine
cd /usr/local/stow
stow wine

This is largely from memory, but it should be essentially correct. Once done, you can periodically go back into your wine source directory and say "git pull" to grab the latest code.

Oh, already done that after the repo version didn't work. Didn't try much more afterwards, had barely any time and now I'm back home so... no need to worry.

My guess? GFX. And I did manage to get it through the menu to update process, but it seemed to fail so it'd need a bit more work (probably, as it was suggested, link to C:// in wine dir since I didn't install it in the default one)

Anyway - case kinda closed. I guess it could be left here for future reference (though we're using new forums now!)
