PostPosted: Fri Aug 23, 2013 5:45 pm    Post subject: Wine and League of Legends Reply with quote

I wanted to install Wine and use it to run League of Legends http://beta.na.leagueoflegends.com/ (for if you don't know what it is). Is there a walk-though somewhere I can view and read over for this, if not can someone explain how to get Wine and how to get it up and going for this game? thank you in advance.

Wine is part of portage, all you need to do is "emerge wine".

From then on, it's luck of the draw. If you're lucky you can run wine on the installer.exe file directly.

ooookay sooo better plan :) .. install wine and then do the following

do this http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Wine

then this

Code:
emerge --ask app-emulation/playonlinux
emerge --autounmask-write app-emulation/playonlinux
dispatch-conf
emerge --ask app-emulation/playonlinux


when done find PlayOnLinux in your system.

Open it and let it update.. go to Install on the program and the to Games, next tick the "Tested" box.. fine League of Legends.

install it and follow the instructions. when its all said and done click Run on the top of the program and BAM!

hi,

I've just done it last saturday :

1 - Installed wine
2 - Downloaded a base installer depending on your location ( there are more but can't find the names ) because the full one hangs while installing :
*LeagueOfLegendsBaseNA.exe
*LeagueOfLegendsBaseEUW.exe
3 - ran the installer.
4 - made a git clone of loL-Linux-tools
5 - ran it ( it will fix some textures to enable the in-game shop )
6 - Play :)

If you 'll stick with this , you'll be able to play quickly. others how-to i found were outdated.

dude you're awesome! i'll give this a shot as soon as i have some alone time from the lady ^_^

Quick thing, I installed wine, downloaded the installer though when I run it I have to choose which program to open with. That's when I choose wine right? From there follow the directions from the read-me in the zip for git and is good to-go?

Yes, or run in console : wine path_to_exe.
You should install it on clean prefix.Check wineHQ if you need to.

I'm getting weird errors, just going to boot into win7 for now and mess with it later on

Edit: Sooo i got the game working and up but now im having troubles with the texture git. I'm using PlayOnLinux to play the game and used a wine version that was set to run it. When i followed the git instructions and try to execute the command ./lol_linux.py i get a "permission denied" even in root. any suggestions?

EDIT: I think if anything im confused about the "4- made a git clone of loL-Linux-tools" can you explain this to me please? i did find this though, is it relevant? http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Git

I got rid of PlayOnLinux and reinstalled wine, sync'd and updated.. installed league of legends using the base installer and i was able to log in and access the shop, and all.. but when i go to play a game i still have no textures. So i tried the lol_linux_tool_master and this is what im getting now.

Code:
./lol_linux.py texture_patch
League of Legends - Linux Tools
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./lol_linux.py", line 207, in <module>
    data_file = download_file(data_url)

my lol_path is this
Code:
lol_path = '/home/divel/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Riot Games/League of Legends'

i've invested about $300+ in the game since beta and that being said have also been playing it since beta :) i have a lot of friends in the game that i know personally and some that are from other countries that i've been knowing though out the years of playing. I mean I could just boot into windows 7 and play it, but I'm trying to get it working here so i can go to a full linux operating system. If you could help i'd be greatly appreciated ^_^

fair enough. I did play LoL for some time and did try getting it working on linux quite some time ago.
But when Riot split the regions my account got screwed up and I couldn't migrate it from NA to EU so the account just died. I might try again mind.

hi

Git clone is a "clone" :) of a git repository.
You only have to issue the command :
Code:
git clone git://github.com/A-Metaphysical-Drama/LoL-Linux-Tools.git

It is written on the link i gave you here

Since i think you get rid of this now, i can't really say what's wrong with the python error.
I'll say it's not finding any files to download.Try again a few minutes later or check the repository again.Maybe some people were working on it and modified some files.

The texture patch command is supposed to fix the in-game shop.If you 're missing in-game textures , something is wrong.You could try :
Code:
./lol_linux.py repair


PS : i assumed you have edited your Lol_linux.py and wrote the path to your game.
