I will talk to MM about changing "Wine+Linux" to "Wine+Linux (unreliable, community supported)" to prevent issues in the future.  I'm sorry to hear about the assumptions you made Toma.

Hopefully we'll see you back in the future.  MM's new game will be cross-platform, and if you like Soldat you will almost surely love the new game.  He hasn't officially announced it yet, but you can follow its progress and lots of other neat stuff at http://mm.soldat.pl

Seems to work flawlessly for me at least.

WUMPUS! Test it! (and get to IRC some day please! :()

YEAH, day saved! (or probably few more too).
See you there

This expection message-crash comes from all servers that use BattlEye, mode doesnt matter.
And after the crash I'm banned at the server this happened.

Any ideas on a fix?

hi,

it's me again and i made a big mistake: never touch a running system ;D; but i did. i updated soldat 1.4.1 to soldat 1.4.2 and now all the ingame writing is somehow fucked up.
and the bottom i will add a screenshot.

now to my specs: i am running xubuntu 7.04 (looking forward to gutsy) and i am using wine 0.9.47 (the latetest)

would be nice if someone knows an answer

p.s.: if anybody knows how i can write a desktopentry under aplications games with an working xrander && -0 for and xfce deskopt this would be appreciated.

I've got Soldat to work quite well under Ubuntu Gutsy with Wine 0.9.46
This is the system I used, upgraded with the Core 2 Duo 2GHz and 2 gigs of ram.

Strangely, I had to set wine to emulate windows in NT4 mode. I found this out accidentally because another program needs it to work under wine.

Here's a vid of what I changed and of me playing.  (~55 megs)

That video plays very well with VLC

I've got a bug where it says:

80000004 error

and it makes me have no choice but to restart/shutdown computer. It pretty much does 100% crash where you can't do much about it...

It only does it on multi player/online...

How do I fix it?

I'm using linux(The 7.10 gusty or whatever that strange name is. >.>)and wine.

According to Elephant Hunter, that seems to happen on BE servers only.  What happens if you play in single player or play on non-BE-protected servers?

Like Flies mentioned, the 80000004 error only happens to me in BE-enabled servers.

You should run Soldat in windowed mode. If it ever crashes like that just run xkill from a terminal and click on the Soldat window. Below is the launcher command that I use. It assumes that you are running Soldat at 640 by 480. You need to change "elephanthunter" to your Ubuntu username.

env WINEPREFIX="/home/elephanthunter/.wine" wine explorer /desktop=Soldat,640x480 "C:\Soldat\Soldat.exe"

BE is not the issue. I can play fine on one server (iinet 6) which *HAS* BE enabled, but just about every other server I try gives me 80000004 external exception.

I have a really old video card from intel and 300 Mb of ram do you think that is a reason why my Soldat freezes up when ever i start it under ubuntu with Wine.

[edit: wine-0.9.45]
BE is the issue.
I was twice able to play on a BE enabled server, on both times it was because the client was updating itself during the game. Right after it got done and said "initializing BattlEye..." it crashed with this error. It has never crashed on non-BE server for me (although I haven't played that much).

BE initialises fine here on the one server I can play on.

Date Posted: December 04, 2007, 07:10:45 am
Yeah alright, it's BE. No clue why I could play on that particular server for so long without hassles, but after updating wine to 0.9.51 I get the external exception there aswell. However, there seems to be a lot less graphical glitches in 0.9.51. I played around with settings trying to get around the exception without any luck... Reinstalled soldat, and then everything worked! For about 5 minutes, then BE updated itself and exception'd my ass :(

I have a solution for a font and fps problem.
You can use standart font and you don't need a "Video Compatibilty" mode.
You must OLNY change 'Smooth_Edges' in 'soldat.ini' from 1 to 0 (turn it down).
That's it :)
From 10-13fps, now i have 110 fps :D

Tested in Ubuntu 7.10 with wine 0.9.46.
Soldat version: 1.4.2.

Soldat uses .ttf s the format for its fonts. I don't know if you can have "bitmap fonts" in that format or not, but all you would have to do is replace the ones in the Soldat directory with your fonts. The Soldat 1.3.x HOWTO has some tips that maybe you can use to help speed up your Soldat.
