GOG.com upgrading its installer, PlayOnLinux scripts require or will require updates to match
Saturday 10 November 2012 at 11:12
GOG.com is currently upgrading many of its game installers to version 2.0, I guess planning to upgrade them all.
This breaks existing scripts:
- Download hashes must be updated
- The new installer crashes right away if it can't find the native gdiplus.dll library. (A workaround is to use Wine >= 1.5.9, but I can't enforce this version on all games)
- There's a potential issue at the end of installation on multi-screen setups, if you're in such case feedback is welcome
- Installation path and filename cases changes
Obviously updating all scripts and test them will take a while, so expect disruptions for the time being.
In the meanwhile, if you saved the v1 installers, you can use them instead of downloading the v2. If you didn't keep the old installers, all you can do is wait for the script to be updated.
I'm trying to modify the scripts so that the old installers should still work, but for lack of time scripts will only be thoroughly tested with latest installer available, thank you for your understanding.
