Running Conquer Online 2.0 on Linux Ubuntu using Wine

Recommended Posts

I got a bit bored this evening while waiting for a download, and so I got Conquer Online working on a spare Linux machine. If playing a dead game on an operating system it wasn't meant for sounds right up your ally, maybe your laptop can't support Windows 10 or something for the latest security updates, then start by installing Ubuntu Desktop 18.04. Once you're up and running, update your system. Once rebooted after updating, install Wine and PlayOnLinux from the Ubuntu Software app. Then, open PlayOnLinux and do the following:

  1. Click "Install" and then select "Install a non-listed program".
  2. Select "Install a program in a new virtual drive".
  3. As the name of the instance, call it "conquer".
  4. For pre-installation steps, select "Configure Wine" and "Install some libraries".
  5. Select a 32-bit Windows installation.
  6. Once the Configure Wine window opens, select "Windows XP" as the Windows Version.
  7. Click Ok and select the following libraries to install on the next screen:

    POL_Install_crypt32
    POL_Install_d3dx9
    POL_Install_dinput8
    POL_Install_dsound
    POL_Install_dxdiag
    POL_Install_flashplayer
    POL_Install_flashplayer_ActiveX
    POL_Install_ie6
    POL_Install_msvc80
    POL_Install_msvc90
    POL_Install_VideoDriver
     
  8. Wait for everything to download and install, pressing next here and there.
  9. Eventually, you'll be asked for an executable to run. Copy the client onto the conquer virtual drive (shortcut in your home folder).
  10. Select "Browse" for an executable to run (or skip). Once ran, you'll be asked to create a shortcut. Select "conquer.exe" from browse.
  11. After adding the shortcut, select "I don't want to make another shortcut".
  12. Select "Conquer" from the main menu and click on "Configure".
  13. Add "blacknull" as an argument under General. Set the video memory size to a larger MB size under Display.

Tada, you can now run Conquer Online on Linux (I think, I didn't actually try logging into a server).
PS: If you get a page fault exception, update your video drivers.

      Instructions
      Download one of the clients above Extract the loader into the client's top folder Edit LoaderSet.ini with your IP address and run ConquerLoader.exe The launcher does not have a virus - it is designed similarly to a virus (redirects traffic to your server rather than official), and shows up on most virus scanners and firewalls as a false positive. Add ConquerLoader.exe and LoaderHook.dll to your whitelist.
