..okay... if we had a 'copper' medal (>bronze<silver) then I'd
probably give it that -- it's not my genre of game, and really,
folks that are into this game should try it more in depth than
I'm prepared to go... and I've got some other issues wrt how the
free2play version should appear in C4, so any feedback on that
front would be appreciated ...I'll start there...
Does 'Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures' still exist as a standalone
title, OR, has it been replaced/superseded by the title the free2play
version has?...ie; 'Age of Conan - Unchained' ...OR* should this C4
page fall back to a simple 'Age of Conan'...??..I'm just trying to
figure out if there should be another separate C4 page or not..(or
edit this one)....
...the above info on what you need in the bottle is correct, and
eventually (10+ hours later..) the patch process will successfully
complete..but it won't run...
*Obtain a copy of the windows library dhcpcsvc.dll and place it
in the bottle's drive_c/windows/system32 directory, then set a library
override for dhcpcsvc.dll to native in the Wine Configuration libraries tab...
...now try launching the game again, in directx9 mode (do NOT use dx10)
and it should start, let you log in, create character, and get into game
...but be warned, there are graphics artifacts a plenty in the opening
& starting screens/videos ..but they tend to settle down a bit once you're
actually ingame. It's being a bit of a pig wrt changing video resolution,
seems to bail it everytime, so you might have to futz with the config file
manually, which (on linux) I found residing at...;
[bottlename]/drive_c/users/crossover/Local Settings/Application Data/Funcom/Conan/Prefs/Prefs_3.xml
... one can change stuff there and they'll take effect on next start. You
likely need to keep the video setting on LOW, or the artifact business
gets surreal. I think if you experimented with the pref file above, you
might find some extra tweaks. Otherwise it seems run and accomplish most
of what it's meant to do, but I was just walking along the beach before
and suddenly found myself in the middle of the ocean =) ..it has issues...
...I'll give it a bronze for now....
