Description

Français :
Oblivion se déroule dans la province de Cyrodiil, le cœur politique de l'empire de Tamriel qui est principalement habité par les impériaux. Dans cet épisode, le héros doit aider l'héritier du trône, Martin Septim, à monter sur le trône de son père assassiné et éviter ainsi à l'empire de tomber aux mains malveillantes de Mehrunes Dagon, prince daedrique du chaos.

English:
Oblivion continues the open world tradition of its predecessors by allowing the player to travel anywhere in the game world at any time and to ignore or postpone the main storyline indefinitely. A perpetual objective for players is to improve their character's skills, which are numerical representations of certain abilities. Seven skills are selected early in the game as major skills, with the remainder termed minor. Developers opted for tighter pacing in gameplay and greater plot focus than in past titles.

I have an improvement to propose.

I added POL Calls for installing d3dx9 for setting all neccessary dx9 calls and directmusic in order to be able to play with music.

Maybe calling d3dx9 component is a bit too much of an overhead but this way it worked for me with current wine 

Regards, Lazalatin

As noted in https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=19444 (Steam), Steam needs to be run with '-no-cef-sandbox' to work. This installer made it further than the currently approved one (current crashes after updating steam, this one crashes after logging in due to CEF sandbox). After logging in, Steam will fail to launch even with this updated installer until you modify the launcher arguments. After modifying the arguments, launch steam and proceed installing Oblivion following the installer's instructions.

Adding '-no-cef-sandbox -no-dwrite' to the Steam arguments in PlayOnMac allows it to run after logging in, install, but then Oblivion crashes when it tries to load a save game or quit a current game. I was able to start a new game and save. I'll try to look into it later.

Actually, this program ran for a couple years, with Nehrim and a medium modded version before that. Then I decided to reinstall a new version for a new mod. Had it working right up until yesterday. A bad mod crapped my installation. tried to save it...couldn't

Tonight, I reinstalled it all again. But I can't get it to start anymore. At all. 

I tried several times, several versions, several components, according to help on the internets. I removed --purged then reinstalled playonlinux. I reinstalled wine (which wasn't even really installed (?)).

I tried doing just the most basic possible installation: craps. It freezes right from the start. 

Is there a more complete way to wipe clean my installation so some sneaky crappy configuration file isn't spoiling everything ? I'm about to reinstall my whole system! (ubuntu 14.04)

I really love this game, but i'm not ready to get a new laptop just yet.

Thanks!

~/.playonlinux is where the problem was.

It appears to work well on Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit with no configuration... Good job.

The only problem I have experienced is when i set it accidentally to something other than my native resolution. It messed up my screen and I had to restart my pc.

It runs well but game shortcut doesn't work for Steam deluxe version. Deluxe version has to be run using  steam://rungameid/22330 as well.
