solved by emerging an older version of wine(1.2.3)

I have downloaded and installed exile3: ruined world but when I try to run the executable(EXILE3.EXE) I get an assertion failed error, here's the error on my terminal:
xe: /var/tmp/portage/app-emulation/wine-1.6.1/work/wine-1.6.1/dlls/user32/painting.c:490: dc_hook: Assertion `dce->hdc == hDC' failed.


the game is available for download for free on the spiderweb software website
if anyone needs a link to the game, I'll be more than glad to provide that link

Hello blakdeath,

I think this is more a question for the forums in wine.

The AppDB reports that the game is not running with a newish version of wine.
-> http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=1022&iTestingId=77216

How do you run the game ?

Do you use a separate wine prefix ?

Do you use WIN32 Flag (also in install!!)

I got sound problems atm who needs to taken care of so i cant test it, but I would recommend 2 strategies:

1. Try to find out what dll delivers painting.c. Then get the original windows DLL of that one and replace it in winecfg.

2. Try downloading a working wine version and install it locally (--prefix /some/local/game/dir) and try your luck with that.

Teegrins, blakdeath!


Not sure how far you got with it by now, but it looks like wine-1.5.15-145-g29b3902 is the last working version, 091c342f32583464df5ef45ae314d34e9a511c90 being the first bad commit.

I hope that saves some time for ya, and I may look into it more deeply myself at some point, as well as open a bug for it, unless someone else gets to it first. Didn't find anything similar with a quick search (yet).
