    Hello!

    I tried to install ABZU with the method I learned from you guys but I get this when i try to start it.
    Seems its a 64 bit game? Should I try to create a 64 bit virtual drive?

    Error in POL_Wine
    Starting 64-bit process AbzuGame.exe is not supported in 32-bit virtual drives

    thanks for your advices

    Yes, but make sure to use the Wine Manager and install a 64-bit version of Wine first.
    Then go ahead with the manual installation and select 64-bit Virtual Drive

    I put it in quotes so it doesn't take a lot of space.
    I really don't see any significant errors in that debug.

    You may have to research what dependencies it needs.
    Some games won't even install without dotnet, vcrun or other packages

    Looks like the game has something called Denuvo and because of that, the game doesnt run on Linux with wine. By now there is no linux version so i will have to wait :(
    This is why I always want to test the games somehow before putting the lil money I have on them.
    I learned this the hard way when i bought an expensive game and found out that i was not able to run it on my computer.

    Good call! Is Denuvo a type of DRM or anti-cheat?
    I've seen those break games in Wine as well... like Swordsman

    Yes it is.:(
    I understand they need to protect their work but Im not completly ok with these methods.
    Thats why I always try to buy on GOG first.

    Yup! Same here! I always check GOG first because its almost guaranteed to work because all DRM is stripped away.
    I have to admit some of those Steam sales are hard to resist.
    That is how I picked up Borderlands 2 and Terraria

    Hello again everybody!

    Finally ABZU is on GOG (DRM FREE) so I purchased my copy.
    This game is a 64 bit. I tried to install using a 64 bit virtual drive.
    Installed wine 2.11-staging and some libraries like
    • POL_Install_corefonts
    • POL_Install_d3dx9
    • POL_Install_tahoma
    • POL_Install_vcrun2005
    • POL_Install_vcrun2008
    • POL_Install_vcrun2010
    • POL_Install_vcrun6
    It didn't work. Honestly I don't know what I must do. I thought now, being DRM FREE it was going to install and run but nothing.
    I visited WineHQ but not much information about what this game needs to run except for wine 2.11-staging.
    https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=35830&iTestingId=99837
    If its possible I would like to request a guide for this game. I payed $220 pesos for this game and I cant play it. The game installs but It doesn't run.
    Thanks you very much guys for your help

    Don't give up. We'll find a way to make it run... specially since its DRM-free
    Give me some time to research and I'll see what it needs to run.

    I have a couple of manual tricks you can try, but no guarantee they will work.
    Since Unreal has always required some form of "Dot NET Framework" we will have to try and install it.
    Unfortunately PlayOnLinux no longer updates packages for dotnet, so we'll have to do it manually.

    Also, make sure to cut-n-paste the "GOG Games" folder in your virtual drive to your desktop every time we create a new Virtual Drive. This way you don't have to re-install the game again. One nice feature of DRM Free.

    Installing Dot Net Framework 4.5

    Start PlayOnLinux
    Click Configure
    Select virtual drive shortcut (left side)

    Miscellaneous Tab
    Click "Open a Shell"
    Copy/Paste:
    Code:
    wget  https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks
    Press Enter

    Copy/Paste
    Code:
    chmod +x winetricks
    Press Enter

    Copy/Paste
    Code:
    WINEPREFIX=/home/username/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/abzu ./winetricks -q dotnet45
    IMPORTANT
    Replace "username" with your Linux login name

    Press Enter
    Wait for confirmation

    Try launching ABZU again....
    Remember to launch with "debug" to see errors and bugs. Most of the "fixme" errors are not so important, but the "err" are very important.

    Hello Booman.-
    Last monday when the game didn't start I uninstall it completly.
    Im going to try again tomorrow (if I have free time) and put "Dot NET Framework" too.
    I dont know why I have this manner to uninstall everything when things dont work at the very first time.
    Thanks for the tips and I will let you know if your tricks made "magic".

    I learned a while back that you have to keep trying. It will eventually run, but sometimes waiting on Wine is the only solution.

    Hello Booman
    Finally I had some time to sit at my computer and try to make ABZU work.
    I did the Dot Net Framework 4.5 and the game still doesnt work. This is what I got from debug:

    Now I see that there are smiles on the code - I didn't put them there, just copy/paste from the playonlinux debug screen.
    Seem there are many things to fix but not sure I understand all of them. Some are .dll files that as far as I understand are needed for Dot Net Framework (maybe I'm saying something stupid but I'm guessing based on what I read). Something about a class object too, if I'm not wrong... And SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth???

    Looks like you will also need vcrun2015
    This too has to be install manually

    Installing Visual C++ Redist 2015

    Start PlayOnLinux
    Click Configure
    Select virtual drive shortcut (left side)

    Miscellaneous Tab
    Click "Open a Shell"

    Copy/Paste
    Code:
    Code:
    WINEPREFIX=/home/username/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/abzu ./winetricks -q vcrun2015
    IMPORTANT
    Replace "username" with your Linux login name

    Press Enter
    Wait for confirmation

    You will have to past it somewhere else and link to it here.
    Did you install vcrun2015?
