hmm, seems to crash when trying to access network, of course the launcher works with its downloads, so not a general network problem
just randomly using winetricks to try and install stuff found in error log lol and got one that's taking a while.. and for some reason I've just found a "39dll.dll" in my downloads dir... more memories coming back now, pretty sure that's what I used to do the networking.. maybe 🤔
oh... that was just from the contents the game downloaded lol
still not working 🤔
ooo but now got a load of wininet errors... getting somewhere!
Just tried again with new install etc and it still just dies half way through the main menu loading (in gm, after gm itself has loaded) 😧
hmmm.... just looking at wine log here, and memories are starting to come back.. with others having similar problems, with the game dying as soon as it starts to try playing music...
"003c:err:dmloader:IDirectMusicLoaderImpl_SetObject : could not attach stream to file L"C:\\windows\\system32\\drivers\\gm.dls", make sure it exists"
hmm, but that's outputted during the gm loading, not after in the main menu loading when it crashes...
still, could be a log from when it tries to load it in, then when gm tries to play music during the menu load it explodes, pretty sure that was a problem people had before
hmm, manually downloading and adding the file to the dir didn't change anything, so messed about with brew and install winetricks, which has gmdls in its list of stuff to install, which I did, and now that error's gone, but it still crashes in the same place lol
