# CHANGELOG
# [Dadu042] (2019-11-29 23:16)
#   First script.
#   As of today, the .EXE installer is unable to run with Wine (crash after clicking 'Finish').
#
# KNOWN ISSUES:
#  - Wine amd64 4.0.2: 'Invalid command line' while running the .EXE installer. Cause: POL_Call POL_Install_RegisterFonts ?
#  - Wine amd64/x86 4.0.2: Text of the .EXE installer are not displayed until the mouse cursor move over. Tried to install many Fonts functions of POL.
#  - Wine amd64 4.0.2: Went up to the registry screen, but I had a crash. This is why I switch to a higher Wine version.
#
# Ideas to improve this script: select archive, then decide if extension is RAR or ZIP or 7Z...

Good evening, to install the mtgarena and make it run you have to install the latest stable version of wine 6.17 replacing the 4 that comes by default in the installation of playonlinux
In the wine 6.17 configuration stable, leave all the graphic configurations activated, set the native resolution of the screen you use, which in my case is 1366x768 and emulate windows 10.
this is exactly how the program starts correctly and starts downloading the database.
my computer is an asus amd a9 8gb ram and it runs mxlinux debian 10.

#  - Wine amd64 4.0.2: 'Invalid command line' while running the .EXE installer. Cause: POL_Call POL_Install_RegisterFonts ?

This update has been approved by the team.

Message

I could not pass the registering screen. I get the "Fatal error in gc, GetThreadContext failed" crash. Perhaps Wine v4.21 will help.

New source code

#!/bin/bash
# Date : (2019-11-29)
# Last revision : see the changelog below
# Wine version used : see the changelog below
# Distribution used to test : KUbuntu 18.04 x64
# Author : Dadu042
# Licence : Retail
# Only For : http://www.playonlinux.com
#
# TESTED Editions: MTGAInstaller_0.1.1968.747022.msi (2019).
#
# Middlewares used by this software : Unity version 2018.2.
#
# CHANGELOG
# [Dadu042] (2019-11-29 23:16)
#   First script.
#   As of today, the .EXE installer is unable to run with Wine (crash after clicking 'Finish').
#
# KNOWN ISSUES:
#  - Wine amd64 4.0.2: 'Invalid command line' while running the .EXE installer. Cause: POL_Call POL_Install_RegisterFonts ?
#  - Wine amd64/x86 4.0.2: Text of the .EXE installer are not displayed until the mouse cursor move over. Tried to install many Fonts functions of POL.
#  - Wine amd64 4.0.2: Went up to the registry screen, but I had a crash. This is why I switch to a higher Wine version.
#
# Ideas to improve this script: select archive, then decide if extension is RAR or ZIP or 7Z...

It does stop during Wine installing Gecko package becoming stuck, if it goes on further it gets stuck without starting the setup.exe choosed.

Done a test with lastes PlayOnLinux version 4.3.4 and Wine 2.22 (amd64).
