Battle.net is crashing LM 20.3 and LM 21

Post by juan_lutz »

Since a few days I can't play with and even worst I can´t install Battle.net. The version originally OK and installed in Lutris shows a message now like a missing dll library and recommends to reinstall Battle.net, but it stays in an infinity loop and doesn't react. Same case if I try to install it directly with Wine.
I have tried different things uninstall wine, install edge versions. Uninstalling and reinstalling lutris, looking for all dependencies, installing Battle.net following the indications of several people available, etc. but without success.
Curiously all other games both with wine and other platforms work, except play/install Battel.net.

In different forums it is aparently a new and known problem, whose solution seems to be not yet available.

It would be a shame to leave this without a solution. :shock:
Has some similar behavior?

Interesting !
looking here what is going on in the gamer world, I discover "bottles" and after looking some videos on the internet how ot install it and use it, I will give them a try installing Battle.net.
I need to emphasize that precisly this kind of "discoveries" are one of the arguments becasue I llike Linux.

Some feedback?
Have a nice day.
Have Fun

I noticed the following was mentioned about 8 days ago now on the GloriousEggroll runner for Lutris...
Note: Battlenet is broken for everyone on all wine versions currently. It's a known issue -- codeweavers guys are working on it:

Battle net seems to be working now. I managed to get into both Diablo II Resurrected and Starcraft a couple of days ago (and just tested again to make sure before I posted :)). I don't have a current sub to WoW so can't test that. I did follow a recommendation on the Lutris forums to delete the Battle.net and Blizzard Entertainment folders.

I fixed it by setting ulimit to unlimited

Code: Select all

ulimit -c unlimited
You will have to do this before running battle.net. Everytime.
