Anyone know how to play the replays in POL? I have seem to hit a wall.
malinat0r Sunday 25 August 2013 at 10:40

I am regarding same question as Aaron asks. Is there any way to set MIME type for .wotreplay to tell POL to start World of Tanks with this kind of files?

I used to go'm not going to have tried everything but it always writes out to the collapse. : (

About the replays, I have found an (ugly) way to watch replays: In the configure section of playonlinux interface, you have a box to write arguments for the program. If you copy there the route to the replay you want to watch (replays/replayname.wotreplay) it will work fine.

As I said it's an ugly method, but since I'm a playonlinux noob, for the moment I'll be glad to be able to use it, if a bit awkward but it works.

Hey, I'm having an issue with PlayOnLinux for World Of Tanks.

It works (for the most part), but I only get like 8 fps. When I used to have Windows, I would get 75fps on Medium, and I only get 8 on minimum. Help?

Hi, I tried to run WoT with latest version of PoL in Mint and failed, it is instaled but qhen I try to run it, it stays for two-three seconds in a white window and then closes. I followed instructions from an Yputube video... any suggestion? Thanks!

@Tyler: If you have an nVidia card? Be sure to go into "nVidia X Server Settings" and go into your GPU's "PowerMizer" and set the Preferred mode to "Prefer Maximum Preformance". For some reason WoT in Wine doesn't automatically clock the card to max. :P

Can you make this run also in korean server?:(
Dillo Wednesday 26 February 2014 at 23:39

I don't understand Alter's method. I tried it and the game just launched like usual. What does he mean when he says the route? Where do I start? Do I do :C/ or can I do it from my normal desktop? °_° I need some more explanation :-°

Tried to run 8.11 on GT630M, i5-3210m, Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon x64, worker great, around 30-40 FPS. Not bad for Linux!
Now i'm downloading the 9.0 update, will post some feedback on that.

Wine: 1.7.4-CSMT with CSMT enabled in registry. GSLS support on.
GPU: Nvidia GTX 560, maximum performance, disabled 'Sync to VBlank'
CPU: Intel i5 750 2.8 GHz

With this environment I get somewhere from 60-90 fps on low settings in windowed mode, 1920x1200. However when I go for medium or high, the fps is much less stable, and will often go as low as <30 fps, rendering it mostly unplayable. I'm guessing there is some issues with the "improved graphics", or OpenGL shadows, as this card should be able to do high without any problems. Also note that on high I get artifacts and flickering.

Other than that, works just fine, no rendering errors or whatnot on low! :-)

How does one watch replays on linux? Is it just not possible?
rosomak-wso Saturday 17 May 2014 at 11:36


Do you know how to use wine 1.7.18? It has some important fixes to use WoT 9.0 correctly.
Johnny Wednesday 13 August 2014 at 18:16

Hi guys!!!
I installed WOT (whith playonlinux) on Linux Mint 17 KDE. Game was installed successfully, I start launcher, but when I login the launcher automatically closed. Why? can I do? Please, help me.. 

pigletto Thursday 14 August 2014 at 21:07

Same problem here as one described by Johnny. After clicking Login it show some messages about connecting, loaading data, updating Garage and then just closes without any messages. Tried on two different machines running Ubuntu + Unity and Kubuntu (both 14.04) and no difference.

Hexa Friday 15 August 2014 at 17:38

Same as Johnny and pigletto. Linux Mint 17 with good installs of proprietary video drivers. The laucher starts and the game crashes while syncing at garage. 

JustSomeOldDude Wednesday 28 January 2015 at 14:18

Mint 17 Cinnamon. ATI HD4670 stock open source drivers.

Game loads well. FPS at 30 after syncing with garage and updating crew, FPS drops to 4 , mouse becomes unusable.

I have tried disabling GLSL support in the POL configuration = no effect.

V-sync is unchecked in the game settings. toggling seletion has no effect.

I did not have this problem in Ubuntu 14.04 although Mint17 and ubuntu 14.04 use the same base.

Any thoughts?

hi all !


I'm fucking froggy so i don' t speak a good english :)

For replay , just create a new link with playonlinux  ( configure => new link => WorldOfTanks.exe )

You just have to put the file on the new link and it begin !!!

dosoe Saturday 16 May 2015 at 2:09

LMW Saturday 27 June 2015 at 1:02

Hi Guys,

TransD Wednesday 15 July 2015 at 9:17

Today 14/07/2015 WOT updated to 0.9.9. #21

Now when entering login it starts sunchronizing and crashes.

Any ideas how to fix?


John J Wednesday 22 July 2015 at 14:05

I have exactly the same problem with version 0.9.9. #21

The game crashes before entering the garage.

There is a solution posted in world of tanks forum, in "bug reports" section, but I don't know how it's done.

Any help ?
