    Hello!

    I run debian wheezy 64 (everything up to date; using wine-bin i368). Hardware is a AMD Phenom II 955 BE; AMD HD7770. 12 GB RAM.

    I installed Skyrim following this guide
    http://www.gamersonlinux.com/forum/threads/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-guide.331/

    I searched a lot for this issue but didn't find anything even close to it.

    And everything worked so far.

    Except: When the game is launched after the Video I do not see anythin (no fog, no menu) but the skyrim logo on the left side. No reaction on keyboardinput. No mouse seen.
    All I can do is quit skyrim with alt+f4.

    I really do not have the slightes clue as to why this is or how I can solve it.

    I give you the log (playonlinux.log) - anything else that might help, let me know:

    One odd thing is: the last log entry ("fixme:xinput:XInputSetState (0 0x3408e9cc) Stub!") is still being written to the log over and over again (even as I write this; after skyrim is closed and even after playonlinux is closed).

    Code:
    [11/21/14 19:06:54] - Running wine-1.7.30 TESV.exe -no-dwrite
    fixme:xinput:XInputGetCapabilities (0 1 0x32fb8c)

    Any suggestions anyone?

    I've always read that "fixme's" aren't usually a problem.
    I'm concerned about those ALSA errors...
    I have seen Alsa lockup or break a game before.

    Are your video drivers up-to-date?
    I don't have an AMD video card, so Its hard for me to make suggestions.
    Sadly, drivers for your video card can be a make-or-break with games.

    Those ALSA errors might be related to missing 32-bit libraries. Are you able to run any other games?

    Thank you for your input guys!

    My AMD drivers are the most recent version (not the beta though).

    I ll try to get rid of the alsa errors.
    I ran lord of the rings online on that very same machine - worked fine so far.

    Funfact: It just started. And worked. No sound though. And: I cannot reproduce that xD

    But I think I got most of the alsaproblem (though I still hang right after Skyrim starts; no menu; no mouse):

    Code:
    [11/23/14 07:56:32] - Running wine-1.7.31 TESV.exe
    fixme:alsa:AudioSessionControl_RegisterAudioSessionNotification (0x15c920)->(0xb39c3d4) - stub

    The successful starting was BEFORE I fixed the alsa stuff.

    No way! Lord of the Rings online runs? For some reason I never looked into it on PlayOnLinux.
    Its free-to-play, so I'll have to give it a try as well.

    Those d3d "fixme's" are very suspect.
    I haven't run Skyrim in a while, but make sure the In-Game community overlay is turned off.

    Definitely try other version's of wine as well. The wine 1.7.8 is an older version in the guide.
    I haven't tried newer versions. So I'm glad you are trying 1.7.31
