Hello, everyone! New user and first time poster here.
I’m running Lutris in Arch and I’m just sampling it here and there so far.
I’ve gotten one Steam Windows game to install and run with no issues, one Sega Genesis game to run with no issues, but I’m trying to install a Windows game without Steam and that’s where my problem lies.
I’m at work right now, so I won’t be able to pull up exact errors at the moment. When I’m on lunch, I’ll run home and see what I can do.
The Windows game in question is Guild Wars 2 (64-bit client). When I open Lutris through the terminal and try to launch GW2, I see an error saying that it’s a bad EXE format. So I set the runner’s WINEARCH/WINEPREFIX (like said, not home, so I can’t tell right now) to 64, and then it says that I only have the 32 bit version of Wine installed. However, the runner I’m using is the latest staging for 64 bit.
As of the moment I am able to get the 32-bit installer to work just fine. In fact it’s installing while I’m away from home.
What can I do to force Lutris to use the 64 bit prefix? Should I uninstall my non-Lutris Wine?
EDIT I’ve forgotten to mention that when it says I only have the 32-bit version of Wine installed, it points to
EDIT EDIT I renamed my
/.wineX to see if it would effect anything and Lutris created a new one. I deleted
/.wineX and just selected the 64-bit installer and set the prefix architecture to 64 and it worked.
Now, I’m going to install this and add a ton of applications to Lutris’s supported games as I get them working. And a HUGE thank you to the devs for this. I don’t have anywhere near as many headaches with this app that I did with one I relied on for so long…
So for anyone else having this problem, just delete your
