I ran this program on Playonmac previously, but when i came back to it I've had little success. It still runs on crossover, and though my trial expired I at least know I can run it on my 2011 iMac (El Capitan). The links on this page (including PlayOnMac's interface "Install a Program" option) have not worked for me, giving me the "error 1 registering DLL /Users/username/Library/PlayOnMac//wineprefix/DCUniverseOnline/drive_c/windows/system32/xaudio*" and so I've only successfully been able to install the DCUO_setup.exe file from the DCUO website.

The issue is, once everything is downloaded (launchpad works fine) the system just pulls up a black screen. There's no video or sound at all. I've tried deleting the Launchpad-user.ini file (which just generates a new copy when I launch the game) and tried installing d3dx9_36, vcrun2008, vcrun2010 and xact. Nothing seems to work. I'd really rather not have to pay for Crossover or use Bootcamp. 

tl;dr - I know for a fact my machine can run DCUO but when I get it all installed, I get a black screen. I've already deleted Launchpad-user.ini and validated my files.

The set-up script looks old. If you use a recent wine-staging release you don't need to specify a 32-bit wineprefix, and you don't need to install IE8 either. The only winetricks you have you have to install are

d3dx9_36
vcrun2008
vcrun2010
xact

Has anyone been able to figure out how to stop this game from crashing?

I was seeing a lot of crashes because of too many open files. Apparently the Unreal 3 engine that DCUO uses likes to open a huge number of files, and increasing my system limit to 500,000 helped stability by quite a bit

Sadly on installing the installation process reports an error: 

Error 1 registering DLL /Users/JoaJoa/Library/PlayOnMac//wineprefix/DCUniverseOnline/drive_c/windows/system32/xaudio*

and then quits (report has been sent).

Anyone else got that?

Hi there, just registered to give a small contribution.

Had the issue for quite some that, that the launcher would allways fail connection, searched quite a bit for a solution, and finally fixed it.

It seems there is some issue with the awesomium process, found a lead on a entry to Hawken Beta on WineHQ after searching for this error:

ERROR:network_change_notifier_win.cc(159)] WSALookupServiceBegin failed with: 8

Did many many searches like that one not ending up with anything, but in a comment about the launcher for that game not being able to connect and failling to start, a commenter says it worked with the awesomium patched wine, in other words the guild wars 2 wine patched on POL. Tried 1.5.28-GuildWars2 since it was the version closest to the one used on this install script, and alas, finally, patching up the game! smiley

Hope it helps and that it resolves the issue.

Final FIY, never did any scripting for POL so i am unsure that line is the only one necessary to change the wine installation, though in a quick search i fail to find another candidate line.

Changed download location to reflect daybreakgames: https://launch.daybreakgames.com/installer/DCUO_setup.exe

I'm still having an issue when I start the launcher that it can't connect to daybreakgames, though.

I dont know why. It could be something I've forgotten but i downloaded playonmac and it did all the required downloads for DCUO to run (like XQuartz and stuff) and once it ran, it got onto the install screen and fully installed. I then go to click play and it acknowledges it but then cuts to black. It's not loading, it definately stays like this. Do i need to debug it or will it not work?

Install and patcher worked fine. When I attempted to play the game believed a controller was being used when none or installed or plugged into the PC. When I attempted to fix this through the launcher config option it attempted and failed to install Microsoft.net.

As of now I am unable to play the game.

For some reason it is unable to access  /usr/lib32/alsa-lib/libasound_module_pcm_pulse.so

Also  it complains about err:winediag:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated. Make sure that ntlm_auth >= 3.0.25 is in your path. Usually, you can find it in the winbind package of your distribution

Mine is working pretty well. The only issues I've had so far are:

1. When I first started playing it would start in full screen(not the issues per say) and if I alt tabbed out it would always crash.

2. After changing res to windowed it now starts the game not in full screen but in a small window that only shows the corner of the actual screen it is representing. I found I can fix this first by right clicking the menu bar on the program window and selecting resize. It either automatically shrinks the image to the window or when I click anywhere it changes. I then enter the game and change the window size with in the in game menu.

3. When I enter and load places like the starting villian base(not the starting combat zone.) like bohemian base it crashes when I enter and I have to restart the game. Not sure what causes this.

I was wrong: 4. After removing full screen if attempting to back into full screen mode the users display is messed up and I must logg out and back in. It creates a black window where you can rotate around the actual desktop and game screen. Luckily the button still functioned.

Installation completes and the game's "Launcher" comes up for you to log in.  No patcher seems to appear, despite the warning.  Close the "Launcher" just in case, and reopen via PoL application window.  On successful login it tries to complete installation, then gives an error: "Your graphics card is not capable enough for this game (VendorID=0x8086, DeviceID=0x2582, Name=X11 Windowing System)"  This is clearly referencing the virtual environment since X11 Windowing System is not my graphics card.  Searching online, others have experienced this issue on Linux, but have found no solution.  It doesn't seem to appear for everyone.  I've tried it on Ubuntu and Xubuntu Precise. I've researched my graphics card, which is capable.  The game's forums were of no help.
