I miss pre-Searing: Getting Guild Wars 1 to work


#1

I tried installing Guild Wars (https://lutris.net/games/guild-wars/), but I get this error message when I’m trying to start the game after initial installation:

Unable to initialize 3D output. Please verify that you have installed DirectX 8 and an updated video driver.

It works on PlayOnLinux and people report that it works using just WINE. I’m not sure how to go about figuring it out for Lutris. Does anyone have any ideas?

Also, just kidding, I don’t miss pre-Searing right now. LDoA grinding, augh.

Edit: the WineHQ entry for it suggestes to add the “-dx8” flag to the run command. I have no idea how to do this though.

You can add arguments under Game options. Right-click game > Configure > Game options > Arguments

It turns out I was putting it in the right spot. It didn’t work, unfortunately.
