I'm finishing my script for installing Combat Arms, but suddenly a part of my code that worked no longer works. Let me show you:

warning "This game is only available for the following regions:
North Ameria
South America

Europe

The part that doesn't work is this:

POL_SetupWindow_message "Only proceed after the download is complete!" "$GAME"


Everything works except the wine command. If i type this command in the console, it works. If i do it by GUI, it works as well. Only here it doesn't work!
The console outputs:
err:service:RPC_Init RpcServerUseProtseq failed with error 1703

Any help?

Thanks!

Hey Darkblood,

Nice and ambitious script you've made here (if the first piece of code is actually the entire script), but you still have to learn young padawan

Indeed, there is several mistakes or forgotten things.

But first, the solution to your issue. Wine doesn't manage to run CAE_Downloader.exe in your script because you haven't created a prefix for Combat Arms.
Do so with select_prefixe "$REPERTOIRE/wineprefix/CombatArms"
POL_SetupWindow_prefixcreate
(or "POL_SetupWindow_normalprefixcreate" if it don't do the trick).

Otherwise, you should make sure you're actually where you think you are, when you do "rm *.jpg" at the beginning of your script.
Also your mv commands don't work. For instance, instead of
mv $REPERTOIRE/tmp/CombatArms/CombatArmsSetup.exe $HOMEyou must type mv $REPERTOIRE/tmp/CombatArms/CombatArmsSetup.exe $HOME/CombatArmsSetup.exe(By the way, I'm wondering why you move the installer in the user's home directory? Isn't it useless once the installation is done?)

Finally, could we see your IE function please? Because I think you can do simpler but I'm not sure, so I can't tell for the moment

Bye and carry on (because, despite all I said, that's a very good start )

Hmn, i see, so that's why it worked an now doesn't work. Before i was doing those two commands, but I thought that by doing - "export WINEPREFIX="$REPERTOIRE/wineprefix/CombatArms/ie6""- all the configuration would go to this folder...guess not.

Otherwise, you should make sure you're actually where you think you are, when you do "rm *.jpg" at the beginning of your script.

Quote from Ghostofkendo

Yes, the "rm *.jpg" at the beginning of my script is nonsense. It was from the "previous" script and i forgot to remove it.
Well, the thing about the installation file is that some people like to keep it, to give it to friends for example. Do you think i should leave it? or prompt the user if he wants to remove it? or just remove it?

One question, i've noticed that it never removes the folder ./tmp/, because none it's created...can i remove this comand?

Last thing, more questions :
What about directx?
I tried using the script in other PC but i had problems with "locate". I switched to "find" and did the trick...What should i use?

Once again, thank you.

Edit: Just one more thing . I want to translate PlayOnLinux to portuguese. I've already edited the .po file in the Lang folder of the source. What else do i have to do?
Thanks.

Well, the thing about the installation file is that some people like to keep it, to give it to friends for example. Do you think i should leave it? or prompt the user if he wants to remove it? or just remove it?

Quote from Darkblood
I think you should ask the user if he wants to keep the installer.

About your IE function, it seems correct, I'm just wondering if it is really necessary to create a launcher for Combat Arms' IE?

Quote from Darkblood
Yes, I suppose you can remove the "rm ./bin/ -r" command.
And for the choice between locate and find, it's up to you. So if find works everywhere, I don't see any problem.

Ok. I've removed it. It was there mostly to give credit for Tinou for making the IE script. I changed to this:

wget "$MS_LICENCE"


The $IES4LINUX i've changed it to:
IES4LINUX="Thanks to ies4linuxnhttp://www.tatanka.com/ies4linux/and also thanks to Tinou for this script"

About the setup file...ok!

Quote from Darkblood


The command i was talking about was ./tmp/ -r not ./bin/ -r . Should i remove both then?
Ok, i'll try locate and find on other distros, to see what happens.

You forgot about the directx ( or you didn't want to answer , just kidding. ). The directx is installed when we install PlayOnLinux?

Edit: Just one more thing . I want to translate PlayOnLinux to portuguese. I've already edited the .po file in the Lang folder of the source. What else do i have to do?

One more thing. About the POL_SetupWindow_browse, is there any way that it selects folders instead of files?

Erf, sorry again. I was meaning "rm ./tmp/ -r "

Indeed, about DirectX, I forgot the question. My apologizes once more.
So DirectX 8.1 is provided in Wine by default. If Combat Arms needs DirectX 9, use the script to update DirectX.

I think the last thing to be done is the shortcut, which is incomplete in this script. If you notice any bugs, please let me know.

About the "Set_OS"...this sets a Windows version that remains every time i launch the game?
If i had used Set_OS_2k in one game, every time i launched that specific game the OS in wine would change (or remain) to the 2k?

Thanks,
Bye.

Hi again,

So...any news? I've sent the email with the .po file, but i haven't got any answer, i don't know if Tinou received it or not. I don't know why he doesn't answer me, i have been always polite and i'm trying to help this project the way i can. And it's not polite from him that he doesn't answer his messages...are we working on a community or what?

Quote from Darkblood


you assume too much and the forum is no place for such assumptions as someone being polite or not in the first place.
There is no point in assuming someone's not polite because they haven't replied and even less point in commenting about it on the forum, I hope it is understood and won't happen again... drawing conclusions from an unanswered mail is taking it a bit too far don't you think?

so submit your script here if it is finished and someone will look it up http://www.playonlinux.com/repository/new.php


If there is a problem, fill out complaint form and place it in an envelope addressed to the name of the hospital in which you were born....

I didn't assume anything, i'm dealing with facts. I didn't say that he wasn't a nice person and i can't even say that, because i simply don't know him... what've said (or at least tried to) is that his atitude towards me was not polite. And if you think the atitude of ignoring people who are trying to help the project is good or normal, well..there's no point discussing with you.
I tried to contact him also by private message, it wasn't only one mail, and i've been very patient, of course.
If i don't use the forum to also discuss these things, where should i go? Working on a community is discussing (not only but also) when something is wrong ...as long as there is respect, it's a good thing and i don't think i disrespected anyone.

I'm not trying to judge anyone, who am i to do that? i just want the same respect that i give to others, and in this case, was just a message saying "yes" or "no".
The email i sent was about a translation that i made for PlayOnLinux, it wasn't related to this script. But thanks for that link, i'll certainly use it when my script is finished.

Ohoh, it seems that you've just met marieuh, so let me introduce the most strict person in our staff... (just kidding)

More seriously, I agree mostly with you. Sure, Tinou should have answered to your messages but what you don't know is that we have to change our server (within a few weeks) and Tinou have to work hard to set up the new server.
So he is very busy right now and as an example, he doesn't have time to do even what I suggest him!

About the shorcut, it is easy:
POL_SetupWindow_make_shortcut "GamePrefix" "Program Files/Editor Directory/Game directory" "GameExecutable.exe" "Game Icon name" "Shortcut name"For the icon, it isn't mandatory so you can submit your script without it and ask to add it later.

And yes, the value given with the "Set_OS" function will remain as long as the user doesn't change it explicitly (with Configure this application > Configure wine for example).

Hi!
As this thread has been dead for awhile, and I couldn't help but notice no script in playonlinux v3.7.2, I was wondering: Is there going to be a completed script for it in the future? Or if there is already a completed script, what do I need to recieve/install it? I love the game, and hate windows. :devil: I'm not much at coding for any language, and know virtually nothing about linux, but I would like to help, if nothing more than just keeping the thread alive. °_°

I realize game updates, along with hackshield updates might add stumbling blocks, and I don't want to sound like an impatient adolescent, was just hoping someone could point me in the right direction as I am new to the linux community as well as the playonlinux community.

To all those who read, research, and reply to these posts, I thank you for your time and knowledge you share with us. You do great things for us who are less knowledgeable in such matters.
