  • warning: You are using a 64-bit WINEPREFIX. Note that many verbs only install 32-bit versions of packages. If you encounter problems, please retest in a clean 32-bit WINEPREFIX before reporting a bug.

    Im getting this error non stop when trying to install plutonium on lutris. I created a 32 bit wine prefix but its doing nothing for me. After i get this error, it just keeps repeating till the download just crashes and exits.

  • I did it(not completely). I have some problems: black installation from lutris.net does not working, its exit with code 252, but installation keeping idk why, then i download plutonium.exe and make manually an application. Only local party works, the game freeze when i tried play on server.

    OS: endeavour os

  • @broken168 ok, finally i could install black ops ii from lutris, but the issues keeping the same.

  • I was able to get this working on Manjaro, however, when trying to get it to use my dedicated Nvidia GPU I get an "unrecoverable directX error. Check readme for help" When using the AMD integrated graphics drivers I have no issues, any ideas?

  • @GaymerCornelius
    Try install proprietary NVIDIA drivers, if not yet

  • @coolest-username multilib enabled?

  • For nvidia users on arch, do this for any direct x errors:

    sudo pacman -S lib32-nvidia-utils
    sudo pacman -R lib32-amdvlk

  • I managed to get both the Plutonium client and BO2 working fine on Fedora using Wine strictly instead of loading through Lutris - though I have a rather annoying problem; the framerate is fine until I hold down either left or right mouse click, then the camera starts going crazy and the framerate drops.

    I believe it's thinking I am trying to drag the current contents of the window (this in-hand registers as a camera movement).

    Has anybody experienced this and or come up with a fix? Thanks.

    I managed to figure this out!

    It was to do with the window not being focused correctly. You can fix this by going into the game and changing the display mode (windowed/fullscreen) a few times in-game. This should fix the window focus, if it doesn't, also try pressing ALT-TAB until you reach the BO2 process to properly focus on the game window.

    Hope this helps someone.

  • Since plutonium is working (on and off ๐Ÿ˜œ ) on Linux now, I would recommend cleaning up the guide.

    First, the Drivers guide should be linked directly to GE's guide, since it shows the instructions for most Linux distros (also the part with the yay installation and yay stuff is not needed).
    Second, instead of installing all the Winetricks stuff on the system-wide Wine installation, there should be a basic Lutris script which automates these steps and all the rest of this guide. This way the system-wide Wine config doesn't get messed up and everything stays in its own virtual-environment.

    Also, maintaining the Lutris script is a much cleaner and easier solution than keeping everything in this thread. I mean, the current Lutris script does only half of the stuff it's supposed to do. I would call my self an amateur, so sorry if this is not a real help. Otherwise, if there's something I can help with, hmu.
