- The game runs a little better if you get rid of "unessential" effects like shadows and anti-aliasing.





Here is a preview of the game, made with the Capture plugin:

The instructions is not very clear. If I press "Forward" in the POL dialog the installation of DX11 begins and after that nothing else happends. if I press "Next" to install the game as I shouldnt do, the game gets installed and after that nothing happends.

How in the world do I install the game? °_°

Not clear ??

Choose your version (DVD or Digital), wait until install is done, let DX install end, press Next and it's done...

It can't be easier than that.

Note : You must have POL 3.8.6 for this installer to work.

What install? If I dont do anything, nothing will happend?

Edit: Just to be perfectly clear. Im here: http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/8139/screenshot1ho.png

If I choose to install the game by pressing Next it will get installed, and when I press Forward the installation with DX begins, after that nothing happends, the Forward button is till greyed out.

When the GAME Installation windows, use it, press "Forward" ONLY when the GAME installer close. POL installer DO NOT replace GAME installer, it easy it. So you still have to follow GAME installer until it end, then, follow POL installer instruction again.

If you press Forward befaore the game installer end, it will not work.

Which version do you have ? Retail DVD ? Digital Edition - like Steam or Direct2Drive ?

Is you POL version up-to-date ?

When you launch POL via a terminal, you you see error messages ?

You're stuck at the DirectX installation right ? Verify you have DirectX folder in the game Folder (when installed).

You need to provide as much infos as you can, saying "i'm stuck" doesn't help to find the problem...

I confirm the bug. I'm using pol 3.8.6 and the wizard stops after directx install; next button is disabled. Searching the install script I found an error, dunno if the cause of the problem: line 97:

echo "\\"MaxShadowSize\\"=\\"0\\"" > $REPERTOIRE/tmp/CoD_Fix.reg

should be:

echo "\\"MaxShadowSize\\"=\\"0\\"" >> $REPERTOIRE/tmp/CoD_Fix.reg

Thx for reporting, error fixed, plz retry and tell me if it still hang at the same spot.

Unfortunately the fix doesn't solve the problem. The installation stops after closing directx install dialog. In console the last lines are a bunch of:

err:setupapi:do_file_copyW Unsupported style(s) 0x144
err:setupapi:do_file_copyW Unsupported style(s) 0x144
err:setupapi:do_file_copyW Unsupported style(s) 0x144
err:setupapi:do_file_copyW Unsupported style(s) 0x144
err:setupapi:do_file_copyW Unsupported style(s) 0x144

(of directx dialog, I think)

'Forward' button still disabled.

I've modified the installer so it will kill the wine process when you press "Forward" for DX install.
Please retry and tell me if it solve the problem.

Im sorry. I should know better than that.

-Im using the DVD.
-My POL version is fully updated.

I get stuck after the DX installation. I cant see anything about DX in the folder. Where should it be and what name should it have?

Ive tried updating POL and that didnt make any difference.

Is the DX install appended ? you see DirectX installation right ? if yes then it's not DX the problem.

Did you tried since my last modification ? if not, please try it.

I've added a killing process command when you press "forward" after DX installation, if it do not work, please check if you have any wine related process alive after pressing "forward".

If yes, kill it and see if it unstuck you then report here please.

I checked twice after the installation, I couldnt find any processes related to Wine at all.

Is Hund and pollux also use Ubuntu 10.10 ? If yes, we might find something...

The fact is Ubuntu 10.10 is the primal cause of MANY strangness with wine and POL...This distribution is getting worse every release...

This installer was tested on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Debian Squeeze, OpenSuse and Mac OSX 10.6.5 (with POM)...worked well every times on them.
