Hello to everybody,

last week I wanted to play with Age of empires 2 through PlayOnLinux, but I had several performance issue.
So i decided to write some scripts to install this game with a never wine version (I didn't even need to tweak settings), and that gives you the possibility to install updates (official and nonofficial).
I've also managed to create a script for "age of vampires", "forgotten empires" and "tale of middle-earth", three mod of AoE2. I'm also testing "age of chivalry: hegemony", but it does not work for now.

In my script, every time you install a mod or an expansion, the prefix is copied (see the scripts please), so that you can mess everything up with mods and patch without messing up the previous installation. That means that it is possible having all the mods installed at the same time. (in Windows it's not possible!!!)

Unfortunately i do not have a cd-drive on my PC, witch means I'm not able to say if you need to use a nocd crack or not.

The games and the mods needs to be tested, but till now I've played without problems. I've decided to pubblish them here to speed up the testings, or would it be better to submit them?

I'll make a new post for every script.

Edit:
I've also managed to use, till now, only one version of wine (version 1.6), it means that the final user does not need to download several mb for playing all these games.

Edit2: I do not have a Mac, but since the scripts are pretty easy I think they are also mac-copatible, but I can't assure it.

Hi fekir,

Well, first your scripts look nice, and with no huge problems to report;
Things to report then:
- The use of POL_System_TmpCreate so early in the script looks a bit strange, even if it should work. Still, I'd recommend to call it just before it's necessary, so you don't have to call POL_System_TmpDelete in some error paths, for example;
- They're few POL_SetupWindow_free_presentation that long, but it happened before (Word and Excel 2003 Viewers, also from you ;) ), so I suppose it's ok
- typo befor => before
- For installation path use $POL_USER_ROOT/wineprefix/$PREFIX. (and of course $WINEPREFIX would be even better, but it's not defined at that point)
- improvement, POL_Shortcut now accepts an extra argument, that in recent versions of PoL/PoM can create a system menu entry in the provided section:
POL_Shortcut "empires2.exe" "$TITLE" "" "-nostartup" "Game;StrategyGame;"

- cp -r "$HOME/PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/AOE2_king" "$WINEPREFIX"
Do not rely on "PlayOnLinux's virtual drives" symlink, PoL itself does not rely on it, and users may have removed/renamed it, not to mention it only exists since PoL 4.0.16 and has an obvious different name of Macs ;) Again better use $POL_USER_ROOT/wineprefix/$OTHERPREFIX
Since 4.1.6 there's a POL_System_CopyDirectory that will display a progress bar; But the script(s) will need a POL_RequiredVersion 4.1.6 statement to check installed version
Last but not least, see my concern about virtual drives cloning below.
- Also starting from 4.1.6, you can use POL_System_unzip instead of unzip. It's not (yet) nice enough to also have a progress bar, but it catches unarchiving errors and display a PoL-style fatal error message, which your script doesn't.
- Sadly POL_System_mv can't really be used instead of mv here, because it can only move one file at a time, no wildcards. You could add failures catching though
- Don't ever use "Program Files" in paths, as it is localized, use $PROGRAMFILES instead

Ok, so the remaining concern is about virtual drives cloning; It has not been a supported operation on virtual drives so far, so we need to make sure it doesn't break existing invariants, or introduce new problematic constraints.
About the "Wine" part of virtual drives (the "prefix" itself), I don't expect huge problems; Wine itself does not see to put any absolute paths in the registry: the only ones I found there come from record of installation paths, and look harmless. The .lnk files seem to contain only "windows" paths, and should be safe too. The drive_c may contain symlinks though, and I think we'd better preserve them using cp -a. Copy-on-write filesystems like btrfs would benefit from --reflink, but it may not be supported by cp on OS X's, to be checked.
One need to be sure that $WINEPREFIX/dosdevices/* use relative symlinks, because otherwise I suspect Wine will keep using the original drives instead of the clones.
About the extra files PoL puts in the virtual drives directories, there's currently only playonlinux.cfg and playonlinux.log. playonlinux.cfg does not contain absolute paths, but if cloning has to become supported, that would become a new requirement. I think copying playonlinux.log over is ok, as its content is somehow also part of the virtual drive's history.

I'm not sure what are all the resources, files and directories created for a virtual drive (configurations/pre_shortcut/? That kind of stuff); And which ones should be cloned along with the wineprefix/$PREFIX content.
In your scripts, POL_Wine_PrefixCreate will never have been called for those virtual drives, so those won't even have the default resources, with unknown consequences.
I think it would be safer to call POL_Wine_PrefixCreate, even if most of want it will create will be immediately overwritten by the copy (that will need to be adjusted because the target would then become an existing directory).

If you followed me so far, it would be best if this operation was first validated by Tinou, and if it is, it's very likely that he will require that this operation is implemented as a PlayOnLinux function, so that it can be adjusted to new invariants.

Hi, I'm updating all the script with
- POL_RequiredVersion
- $POL_USER_ROOT/wineprefix/$PREFIX
- POL_System_CopyDirectory
and so on, and some other fixes.

I only have a problem with $PROGRAMFILES since the prefix is not initialized, I googled a bit and found this article (http://www.playonlinux.com/en/commentaires-759.html), so I assumed i have to use POL_LoadVar_PROGRAMFILES, since I do not create a new prefix

I did not use POL_System_mv since all the mv and cp operation are pretty fast, while copying the whole prefix was slow, with a progress bar it's better.

I've also found a critical bug in Tales of Middle earth, the games hang up if you select a "standard map", previously I've made only some tests with "custom map".
So the games doesn't play some scenario, which is the best way to let the user know?

I would also like to know if it is possible to change the icon of the shortcut, for example ToMe creates a .ico file for the shortcut, which is not used by PlayOnLinux (it uses the icon of the executable).

I do not have the games CD with me, so I can't test the installation of "userscript" in Age ofo Empires 2; The conquerors. There shouldn't be problem since it is used by the mods and seems to work, but I've omitted it on this forum. I thought it might be better to eventually update the script if it works. I'm not posting again all the scripts since they are similar, but only one to show the major changes.

edit:
another question:
As I told you at the beginning of the post, I'm using a computer without a CD drive, which means that I can't tell you if the games works well with the CD.
Therefore I was thinking if it was possible to create a directory under $HOME/.PlayOnLinux, something like "cdprefix" and add a simlink inside the c_drive of the game. This should increase the performance of several games, and it does not need a cd-crack, and the user does not have to search for cracks.
I would prefer not to copy the cd inside the prefix because when i copy it, I would copy 700mb of files which are not needed the execute the expansion or some mod.

Let me know what you think about it, but I think it would be really a nice feature.

edit2:
Documentation needs to be updated, all this candy functions are not documented and not even mentioned in the news, for example (using google), POL_System_mv is mentioned only here.... ;-)

edit3:
Sorry, I found out another bug, this time at rome at war.
I need to make a link to WFSRaWScnv2.akx to make the mod work, but if you do "wine WFSRaWScnv2.akx", you obtain an error saying that the .exe format is not correct, but if you do
"wine start /unix WFSRaWScnv2.akx", the it works without problems.
How should I proceed to make a correct link?

I only have a problem with $PROGRAMFILES since the prefix is not initialized, I googled a bit and found this article (http://www.playonlinux.com/en/commentaires-759.html), so I assumed i have to use POL_LoadVar_PROGRAMFILES, since I do not create a new prefix

Quote from fekir

Correct

I've also found a critical bug in Tales of Middle earth, the games hang up if you select a "standard map", previously I've made only some tests with "custom map".
So the games doesn't play some scenario, which is the best way to let the user know?

Quote from fekir

That could be mentionned in the script description that nobody reads, and possibly as a POL_SetupWindow_message in the script, that more people will notice.
If it's not a huge bug, I'd put the warning at the very end of the installation. If it could be a no-go for some users, I'd put it near the beginning, just after the presentation.

For Urban Chaos, where level restart would just exit the game, I managed to modify the resources to add "(CRASH)", or whatever string it was, at the end of the menu entry. But that's somewhat specific.

I would also like to know if it is possible to change the icon of the shortcut, for example ToMe creates a .ico file for the shortcut, which is not used by PlayOnLinux (it uses the icon of the executable).

Quote from fekir

Some old scripts used ImageMagick to extract and convert icon formats at installation time, but this lead to lot of script complexity and uglyness; So the standard is now to extract the icons as 48x48 PNGs (minimum) and put them on the server.
Putting the icon filename as a third POL_Shortcut argument (usually "$SHORTCUTNAME.png") is then all what's required to set a different icon.

(... script ...)

You forgot to remove POL_System_TmpDelete from the error path;
Paranoid advice: the current directory is something rather volatile, statements should not blindly modify it but it's the kind of bug that's difficult to spot when writing functions; So I'd put the cd right before POL_Download, with nothing inbetween, just to be on the safe side.
The concerns about cloning remain, but since I have no better solution to offer right now, I won't insist on it. I talked about it with Tinou, and as expected it should be a new PoL function.

Therefore I was thinking if it was possible to create a directory under $HOME/.PlayOnLinux, something like "cdprefix" and add a simlink inside the c_drive of the game. This should increase the performance of several games, and it does not need a cd-crack, and the user does not have to search for cracks.

Quote from fekir

Some scripts copy cdrom contents already (That's what ..._CopyDirectory is used for in the first place), specially to work around problems with cdrom switching during installations.
But it should not fool real cdrom presence checks. And if it can be made to, it would probably not be legal in many countries including ours. That's why we do not support the usage of disk images either. So the "no no-cd patch" argument doesn't stand.

I would prefer not to copy the cd inside the prefix because when i copy it, I would copy 700mb of files which are not needed the execute the expansion or some mod.

Quote from fekir

One problem with this approach is that the cdrom content would not be removed when no longer used;
Removing it with this model would require some specific handling in PlayOnLinux, which doesn't look likely any time soon.
cp --reflink on btrfs would make copying the cd content basically free, but that's not a general solution; For other filesystems, closest implementation is to use cp -l for read-only files; That would require special-casing paths in the virtual drive while cloning instead of just cp -a, but would require no change to PoL itself.

edit2:
Documentation needs to be updated, all this candy functions are not documented and not even mentioned in the news, for example (using google), POL_System_mv is mentioned only here.... ;-)

Quote from fekir

That's what happens when the documentation is not updated as the code evolves, as usual... The fact that the documentation is not easily updatable doesn't help with that.

Quote from fekir

Not sure what's the type of this file, I suppose it's a renamed .dll...
Does POL_Wine rundll32.exe WFSRaWScnv2.akx work too?

The problem with the bug I've found the games stops to run, it freezes during the loading, it does not crash.
I'll think about the warning taking into account what you've written.

For the .ico file:
what happens if someone does not have an internet connection? Wouldn't it be better to use the .ico file which is available on the filesystem?

right!

Regarding the copy of cdroms...
I know this is not the right place for discussing it, but isn't it a better solution than using a no-cd patch? And for some games, depending on the licence of the game itself (have no idea about AoE, I should check it, but I can't find the licence on my hard disk right now), it may be also legal.
I'm also pretty sure that it's legal to make a backup copy in many countries, but I do not wan't to insist about it since this is not the right place and a complex problem.
Regarding the problem of where to copy the content of the cd-rom, i thought that maybe something like a cd - manager (similar to the prefix manager) would have been a good solution.

I do not think that WFSRaWScnv2.akx may is a renamed dll, with the command file I get:
"WFSRaWScnv2.akx: Composite Document File V2 Document, No summary info"
I've tried file on some .dll and I got different content.

How can I execute the command POL_Wine rundll32.exe WFSRaWScnv2.akx without using a script? I get "POL_Wine: command not found".

Don't expect PlayOnLinux scripts to run without an internet connection, too many things depend on it.

Quote from fekir

I doubt Tinou wants any features that looks even remotely to a cdrom bank into PlayOnLinux. I can't talk for him, but I have this strong feeling that it's a no-go.

Quote from fekir

Mmmh then I suppose it spawns the app associated with the document type.
Not sure how to emulate that without knowing what's associated exactly.
Otherwise I suppose a shortcut to start.exe can be used, if an absolute path to the .akx file is provided as argument (start.exe will be launched from its directory)...

Quote from petch

Sorry, I do not understand what I should do, I do not have any start.exe file...

I assume that when you click on the shortcut made by PlayOnLinux, the command
"wine  xxx.akx" is executed, isn't it somehow possible to change it in "wine start /unix xxx.akx" ?

Ok.

I think that the scripts may be ready now (excluding Rome at War since it has the xxx.akx file), I'll add the warning to Tale of Middle Earth and pubblish them again.

If you think they are OK I'll ask for the validation (Rome at War excluded if we don't find a solution).

[quote from=fekir
Otherwise I suppose a shortcut to start.exe can be used, if an absolute path to the .akx file is provided as argument (start.exe will be launched from its directory)...

Quote from fekir

Sorry, I do not understand what I should do, I do not have any start.exe file...

I assume that when you click on the shortcut made by PlayOnLinux, the command
"wine  xxx.akx" is executed, isn't it somehow possible to change it in "wine start /unix xxx.akx" ?

Quote from petch


That's the idea, my suggestion was
POL_Shortcut "start.exe" "Shortcut name" "" "/unix '$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/... .../WFSRaWScnv2.akx'"


(start.exe can be found in /windows/command/)

How can I execute the command POL_Wine rundll32.exe WFSRaWScnv2.akx without using a script? I get "POL_Wine: command not found".

Quote from fekir

I forgot to answer this one.
Configure button > (select virtual drive) > Miscellaneous tab > Open a shell
You'll be in an environment close to scripts' one when the prefix has been selected.

great it worked!

Is it somehow possible to change the shell? I can't even copy and paste...

If you think that everything is OK, I would ask for the validation.

Thank you very much for everything!

That's probably not a problem with the shell, but with the terminal emulator.
PlayOnLinux probably used xterm. On Debian based distros it uses the x-terminal-emulator alternative, but that can end up being xterm too, if that's what is selected.

It implements old fashioned X style cut&paste (first button: set selection beginning, third button: select end; or drag with first button; Then middle button for pasting).

Yeah, sorry, I ment the terminal emulator. Thanks. But x-terminal-emulator was set on mate terminal, and now on sakura, POL still uses xterm...

Oh, I almost forgot:
Is it somehow possible, since it's only a game and you do not need to search for files,  to disable the desktop integration?

Every time i install the mods and expansion my home is filled with .lnk files and my Documents folder with the empty folder Music, Video Images, which is a bit annoying...

Strange, maybe the "DEBIAN_PACKAGE" flag is not set? This is all a bit adhoc...

Quote from fekir

That's a Wine feature, but it's possible to disable it after-the-fact: just install the pseudo-component PrivateUserDirs that will replace the symlinks in the virtual drive with plain directories.

To automate it for new virtual drives, you can add POL_Call POL_Install_PrivateUserDirs in ~/.PlayOnLinux/configurations/post_prefixcreate (create the script if missing).
