Trove running perfectly.

I recently wanted to run Trove and thought great PlayOnLinux has a Rift game setup. I thought this would work as Rift and Trove install from same installer/hub but it didn't. Glyph (game installer/hub) installed correctly but Trove error messaged, wouldn't install or run. I found a few forums and YouTube videos and combined their recommendations and it works perfectly.

I have been trying to recreate the method I used with no joy. When I have recreated it I have used a plain Wine 1.9.5-staging instead of the Rift version as a base then modefy Wine version, Windows version and add libraries(with Rift base it works after modifying). I have created a backup of this virtual machine using PlayOnLinux Vault so I don't lose it. 

My main reason for messaging here is because I would like to share my success by asking PlayOnLinux or forum members if there are  files I can submit to PlayOnLinux to get it into the supported games area. Then after that I will pass the information to CrossOver for their supported list. 

How I did it:

Any feedback would be grately appreciated smiley

Thanks for the report, I made a script for (just running the Glyph Game Store script is enough, as of 2020-09-25)


I put here a copy of the 2016 howto of Dasto (from


  1. How to get TROVE to work in PlayOnLinux:
  3. Programs: PlayOnLinux (Rift game base)
  5. Modifications to make to Rift game base to get Trove working...
  7. Version 1.9.5 wine-staging
  8. Config: Windows Vista or 7
    Wine Libraries (in the wine config install apis):
  10. api-ms-win-core-apiquery-l1-1-0
  11. api-ms-win-crt-locale-l1-1-0
  12. api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0

  17. Programs required:
  18. Directxfullsetup install (to install components) - POL_Install_dxfullsetup
  21. COPY: drive_c/Program Files/Glyph/Games/Trove/Live/Trove.cfg
  22. PASTE: drive_c/users/dasto/Application Data/Trove/
  24. Within the pasted Trove.cfg add: Device = opengl UNDER [Rendering] SECTION.
  26. I then COPIED the file from:  drive_c/users/dasto/Application Data/Trove/
    To:  drive_c/users/Public/Application Data/Trove/
  27. I'm not sure if you need to copy into users/Public but I did just to cover myself.
  29. In drive_c/users/dasto/Application Data/Trove/ "dasto" is my linux login username.
  30. I'm not sure how you would set the preset as the user folder would depend on the Linux login username.
  32. Majority of the modifications are credit to the creator of this video (Peka, 2016):
