Diablo II Resurrected Technical Preview Not Running

Hi all, I’m very aware that the D2R Preview is not officially supported on Linux and that it came out just today, however for the sake of living on the bleeding edge I decided to install it and see how it goes. As you might guess, it doesn’t run. :sweat_smile:

I’m running Arch Linux on a somewhat aged Dell Inspirion with an i5-8250U and HD 620 iGPU. Unfortunately I don’t have access to my main PC which has better hardware. I installed the game through my Diablo III Battlenet installation, as the game supposedly uses parts of the Diablo III engine. I’ll also try installing a Diablo II prefix but I’m not sure how that’ll go as the installation seemed more convoluted than that of other Blizzard games I’ve installed to date. Didn’t get very far with this.

This laptop would just barely meet the minimum requirements to run Diablo II Resurrected, so I am not expecting anywhere near anything playable. Hell, Diablo III runs at just about 25fps at med. If I can get the game to open on this machine or at least get far enough for DXVK to fail (if it isn’t already, but I don’t think it is) then I’ll take that as a win.

At first there was an issue around ntlm which discovered by enabling Wine debug logging. I was able to fix it by installing Samba. Then I have ran into a crash that I’m not sure how to fix.

The game is running with standard Lutris Wine 6.4 and DXVK v1.8.1. I also tried Lutris Wine 6.0 and Wine-tkg 6.5 but no luck. I have installed the game inside and outside of the prefix to see if it made any difference, and the game still crashed. Following some of the Wine log output I noticed some of it was similar to some League of Legends errors, and attempted reverting my Windows version all the way down to Windows XP without any change. Looking at machine processes, the Blizzard Error reporter does run briefly but no window appears. The game also logs Realm startup to C:\users\username\My Documents\Diablo 2 Resurrected Technical Alpha\GameLogs\D2210409.txt, however this mainly contains information about my hardware and PC name. The blz-log.txt within the game folder does not contain anything but does get updated each time I run the game, as the modified time matches the timestamp for when I open the game.

I’ll attach the log to let someone with a more thorough understanding of Wine take a look and hopefully give a bit more feedback. Apologies as I’m not sure where exactly the Battlenet startup logs end and the D2R logs begin, so to avoid missing any information I attached the entire Lutris log: https://ghostbin.co/paste/zbmug2

Once the game is actually released and out for a while we’ll get more eyes on it, since it’s only available to the public for this weekend. But maybe we’ll get a bit of a head start to look at some of the technical issues there might be :slight_smile:

EDIT: I installed Lutris-LoL-5.5.2 which I would guess is a League of Legends Wine build. This got the game to a black screen but still crashed and again had no further logging in the game files. I’ll attach the Lutris log in case this is of use. The black screen stays for varying lengths of time and is not impacted by Windows versions, though this time I only tried Windows 10, Windows 7 and Windows XP and ran a couple of times with each. This most recent log is for Windows 10. Apologies but I am unable to have more than two links in this post so here is the log attached inline:
