Wine HQ & Risk of Rain *Solved*

Post by Frunches »

So ive just installed the game Risk of Rain using Wine and when i try to launch the game, the screen goes white and this error code comes up;

FATAL ERROR in
action number 1
of Create Event
for object oInit:

ds_map_read argument 2 incorrect type expecting a String
at gml_Object_oInit_Create_0

Did the game installation go wrong or something i need to install before playing Risk of Rain with Wine on Linux Mint Xfce?

That narrows it down to wine versions 1.6, 1.7 or even 1.8, along with their sub-versions.

The WineHQ web page for your game shows very poor ratings: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager. ... &iId=15131

Generally speaking, a game can get a Bronze rating if all it does in install! For Gaming using Wine, you want a Gold rating at a minimum. With a lower rating, so many functions will not work as to render the game useless.

Sorry, but Windows gaming in Linux is a very hit-or-miss proposition -- and the ratings for the game you want to run indicate that it's not going to work. You might check the Play on Linux website to see if they have anything specifically for this game.
