I just tried to have a look at the new Trinity version on test server.
So I made the copy (used my wine 0.9.49 based version of Eve) and patched it.
I created a shortcut to make it log into test server (http://myeve.eve-online.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=607009
After patch install a message box appeared telling me I got the wrong version of DX3D (but I have 9c and it didn't tell me which version it wants).
Since then I can start, say yes to EULA (have to do that every time - it doesn't remeber) and that's it. Can't get beyond that.
Looks cool:Trinity Login screen
But hangs there (process is zombified). No input possible. Doesn't do anything.
Did anybody manage to get further than that?
The little shader 3 test app that went around a few weeks ago liked my graphic card: NVidia 7900 Go GS.
I used the wine version instead of the official client as the latter has several issues (no copy paste, no blue box, looses keyboard input after alt-tab and back) that I don't have on wine.
OS: Ubuntu 7.10 (aka Gutsy)
