Recently switched back over to Arch and am currently having trouble installing Skyrim with POL.

 

Whenever I try to run the installer the Steam setup window is too small and doesn't have anything in it if I try and force it larger. This prevents me from continueing on with the installation proccess. I think I am probably missing a dependency, but I don't know what.

Hey Folks,

 

I've recently downloaded PlayOnMac so I can run Skyrim without using parallels - Skyrim runs pretty well, but I have no sound whatsoever while playing - no intro, no main menu music, no ingame sounds.

Anybody got any tips on how to troubleshoot this?

My install was;

 

Download PlayOnMac

Install Steam

Download Skyrim

Run

No sound, at all.

 

I haven't installed anything else or messed around with PlayOnMac, just Steam.

 

( Have verified integrity, have tried with + without mods, have reinstalled Skyrim 3 times ) 

 

Thanks in advance!

I've gotten Skyrim up and running, but when I try to close it freezes. I have it running in window mode because when I use full screen the freeze happens and I can't alt-tab to a new window to close skyrim. I've looked everywhere for a solution but was unable to find one. Can you help?

I'm running Skyrim through play on linux with Wine 1.9.3.

That's a common issue with Legendary Edition of Skyrim in Wine. As far as I know, it's a bug in the game engine and can't be easily fixed.

I found a fix for the movement bug, where your character continues moving after you stop pressing a directional button, and jumping while moving is screwy.

You need to turn off keyboard autorepeat before you run playonlinux, with:

xset r off

Turn it back on afterwards with:

xset r on

Hey everyone,

 

I am currently dealing with a variation of the no sound issue on Ubuntu 15.10, but I am getting no sound whatsoever (no intro screen sound, no menu music, nothing). I checked via YouTube to make sure it was not a system wide issue, so it must be a wine issue. I have tried 1.9.3, 1.8, and 1.7.* to fix my issues and none of them seem to work. I have tried Windows XP and Windows 7 for most of these configurations and also tried switching between stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

 

Thanks!

 

EDIT: Figured it out! I have a pair of Astro A50's and I had digital output as my sound option. Switching to analog worked for me. I used the script I responded to below with everything default.

Hi guys !

Skyrim is working great using POL, even with hundreds of mods. However I can't manage to get ENB working. I set the d3d9 library to native then builtin in the winecfg panel but then the game crash on startup (TESV.exe has stopped working).

Is there any workaround to get ENB working on playonlinux ? 

Thanks !

Hi,

Not sure if this is the best place to post this.

I've recently bought Skyrim on Steam and currently trying to get it to run using POL. I've followed the installer and everything works great until I click play on the Skyrim Launcher. It launches the game and I can hear the sound of the Bethesda logo and the main menu music (even the noise of different menu options getting highlighted when I move the arrow keys) BUT there's no video shown with it--it's just a black screen.

Any ideas about what's wrong? I've scoured the internet for the past two days and have had no luck. My guess is that it has something to do with video libraries not present, but I'm not sure what.

I'm running Arch Linux 64bit and I've used Wine versions 1.7.36, 1.7.53-steam_crossoverhack, 1.8, and 1.9.2.

Thanks

the Wine HQ page for Skyrim (linked above) lists some troubleshooting solutions including this: "Some mods change the fonts in Skyrim and sometimes that ends in wine not showing up the menu of Skyrim. Simple fix is to remove fontconfig.txt in Data/Interface." Might solve your issue.

I have the same issue. The unofficial update version from 30.11 works however (on the third try for me actually). You could try to edit the latest script to the version 1.8 of wine.

I ran into this same problem and found that if I altered the script to install steam after vcrun2008, dotnet35, and dxfullsetup then it didn't hang on vcrun2008 and installed correctly. I also updated to the latest wine version that is listed as Gold for Skyrim on Wine HQ (1.9.1), but that didn't seem to affect the vcrun2008 installation.

I updated the script to include the latest Gold Skyrim-supported wine version, and more importantly to fix this issue. To run it, open PlayOnLinux, go to Tools ---> Run A Local Script. Then browse to the script that you save, which can be anywhere.

I actually have been having sound issues now, but at least I have the game launching properly. No sound anywhere, but the game itself runs fine. More troubleshooting to do!

After the OS upgrade wine versions 1.7.33, 1.7.36 whatever settings I set (medium or high) textures go crazy. Before the upgrade it was OK on high.

While running Skyrim on 1.7.51 wine it gets stuck on the downloading save picture while the sound shows I'm at the location already.

Sorry if I don't write it in the correct place.

I have to add another thing which leads to the fact that I have to downvote the App. I simply cannot get the sound crackling fixed on my Fedora Box (4.1.3-200.fc22.x86_64). I am using pulse on the system and the error is:

ALSA lib pcm.c:7905:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred

I already tried quite a lot, including

- Setting frangments in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf:

; default-fragments = 5
; default-fragment-size-msec = 2

- changing "/etc/pulse/default.pa" as described in http://thehumble.ninja/2014/02/06/fixing-alsa-lib-pcmc7843snd_pcm_recover-underrun-occurred-while-keeping-pulseaudio-in-your-system/

 

But nothing worked up to now. Can somebody help me on this please?

Hello,

I am running Skyrim under Fedora 22 (Kernel 4.1.3-200.fc22.x86_64) and POL 4.2.8. So far, the game launches and works, but I have one last problem:

Quit the game is not possible: When I click on "quit to desktop", the game window freezes and I cannot move the mouse anymore, but Skyrim isn´t closed. I can go to an open terminal and kill the appropriate process, e.g

 

michael  23068 35.5  0.0      0     0 ?        Zsl  09:32   0:16 [TESV.exe] <defunct>

As I launched POL from command line, I looked if there is any output as soon as I clicked on "quit to desktop", but unfortunately, there is none at all, so no log for this.

Can somebody please help me on this?

Greets,

michael

I have found something very interesting. As it turns out, Skyrim runs very well with Wine 1.7.40-staging, a patched version of Wine. I have updated the script to use this. This Wine version (finally!) fixes the bug where you continuously walk in a single direction. It also does not have audio problems, unlike some newer, unpatched versions of Wine. I've yet to find a problem of any kind when using Skyrim with Wine 1.7.40-staging; it runs flawlessly with this version.

I'm trying to install the non steam version. But when choosing CD-Rom it install steam anyway and asks for the steam product key.

Can you post your debug log, please?

The script is written that way, so I always assumed there no real "Steam free" version of Skyrim, the DVD just saving you some download. I'm not sure how to check that...

Thanks for creating this installer, I've been pulling my hair out trying to get this to work under plain WINE for hours!

The installer works well, though I encountered several errors that I'd like to mention for possible future updates:

  1. The .NET 3.5 installer seemed to keep failing download, not sure why though as no error was generated and it then just inexplicably worked. Are there any other mirrors that could be used?
  2. During the install Skyrim step I selected to install from Steam, but couldn't because dwrite wasn't disabled at this stage. The installer continued regardless of course, at which point Steam was setup correctly and I could finish the process.

Also, I have one suggestion, though this may apply to any Steam-based game installer, however I keep my Steam library on its own partition on my system, so before I could complete the "installation" (I already had it downloaded) I had to open winecfg to add a drive entry for the partition. It might be an idea to give users the option to do this from the installer; they'd still need to add the library within Steam, but it'd make things easier. Setting up in this way also means I don't need to keep a full copy of Skyrim + DLC + mods in the virtual drive, and can share it with Windows under emulation, or reboot and play natively, all with a single copy of the game. Since AAA games are only going to get bigger and bigger in future this would be a nice thing to have to avoid duplication.

Anyway, thanks again for providing this! After hours of nearly getting Skyrim to work, this worked with only the minor hiccups during installation that I've already mentioned. The game now runs smoothly with no obvious issues so far!

Does the DLC's for Skyrim work on this version?

Replies

Friday 13 March 2015 at 3:19 -
I have heard mixed results. They should work, but it would be on a case-by-case basis. If you want to try to install the DLC, you can run an .exe from a virtual drive by using the Configure window -> select virtual drive -> Misc. tab -> run a .exe in this virtual drive

That will allow you to run the installer in that drive itself. If it doesn't work, I would check appdb.winehq.org first, our forums, and then maybe see if someone on gamersonlinux or a Skyrim players forum. If you cannot get it to work, or you find no information, make sure to try to file a bug with winehq so that, hopefully, someone can figure out a workaround if there is not one otherwise.

Well, as you can see with my previous posts http://www.playonlinux.com/en/topic-12786-Problems_with_skyrim.html and http://www.playonlinux.com/en/topic-12784-2.html

I have an issue with this game... the previous problem seems to be resolved but now I have an other...(gee happy me) when I press play, the game launches...only there is no Continue, charge previous game or any button for that matters... so I can random click on one of them but then it crashes... no doubt I have to change some stuff in the core files but what ?

Although the walking bug that makes your character keep moving in a single direction has not (yet) been fixed, I habe found that you can get much better perofrmance using Wine 1.7.30. Before we change the script, maybe some of you can test Wine 1.7.30. I also think the walking bug might happen less frequently with Wine 1.7.30. I tried it and did not have any problems at all.

Back when I used to play most of my games installing WINE (the new installation system really sucks), Skyrim didn't have the "stuck direction" bug when using 1.7.18... I'm about to try it out here myself, and tell you how it goes. :)

I have just ended the installation of the game on my Mac(Macbook pro Mid 2012, 2,3 ghz core i7, 8g RAM, SSD Drive). All the keys seems to react correctly but the animations are very slow. There is no difference between very low and very high quality. I tried to play Outline, but it's the same.

I've ever play on this computer(directly on Win7) and I played on high quality without lags. I tried with the latest version of wine, but no difference. Can anybody help me to solve this problem?

It being faster with old versions was a bug in Wine that has been fixed in Wine 1.7.30 a few days ago.

I downloaded PlayOnLinux after the traditional Wine installation was unsuccessful.

My first issue was Skyrim's lack of audio, dialogue, subtitles, and inability to communicate with NPCs (and thus make ANY progress in the tutorial).

Upon downloading PlayOnLinux I was able to make it past the tutorial, am able to hear sounds correctly, and communicate with NPCs.

 

However, when travelling into any city, my character loses control and continues to sprint forward despite my best efforts to override this.

No amount of button-smashing, clicking, and re-loading saves will help this issue.

Whenever I enter any city, home, farm, my character just spams "W" (the move forward key) and won't recognize any other key as being pressed.

 

I was wondering if anyone could provide support for my issue. If additional information is needed, please let me know.

 

Thank you.

I am having the exact same problem. I'd be walking, then every 30 seconds the game acts like the key is stuck. It usually but not always happens with the W key. A little work-around to fix it until this is fixed is to press the Alt key a couple times when you lose control.

Also, just a little warning to all of you, DO NOT use WIne 1.7.26. Although it may fix a few bugs in Skyrim, including one that makes you lose control when walking, it will cause Skyrim to give a C++ RUntime error when you attempt to close it. Just puttin' it out there.
