Game using WINE net connection error

Postby Zabadda on Sun Jun 14, 2009 11:20 am

I have just installed Linux Mint 7 and im trying to run my Football Manager Live game (through WINE) which connects to a server to run.

As you can see i have internet no problem, but when i launch the game i get
"unable to connect to the football manager live auto download server, please check your internet connection"

i found this on the site

Football Manager Live requires access through the following ports:

9999 :: Game Server
9920 :: Login Server

im not sure how i check this on Mint though or if its a WINE problem.

The game runs fine on the latest Ubuntu 9.04 just for reference

any help would be great, cheers

have you got a firewall enabled? if so you need to either disable it (mint doesn't really need it) or add exception rules for the port specified.

You can try changing your Wine configuration. Sometimes Windows 95 or Windows NT works better.

Hmm, the only other thing I can think of is which version of wine? Are you using the same version under Jaunty as under Gloria? Are you using the standard repo version or the winehq repo version?

Well ok, try using the winehw repo version instead, see if that solves your problem.

just follow the instructions at the winehq ubuntu download page, but where it references "Software Sources" use Synaptic --> Setting --> Repos instead. You should be able to work the rest out on your own.

winehq is the website of the wine project, it includes the app database for compatibility. Sorry forgot about that stage, you should be able to safely ignore the authentication tab stage, provided you then also ignore any subsequent "This package cannot be authenticated" warnings.
