[Blood Bowl] Unable to find the CD-rom

Hello again,

I managed to solve the winetricks issue...however now I have another one (of course).

I have the downloadable version of the game (it is not a pirate copy, it is just the way they sell it outside France and Germany).

The files that are in my burned DVD are (case sensitive):


Apparently the POL script is looking for the original CD, which is sold only in France and Germany I think. The boxed version of the game for the other countries will come out in September I guess.

So...in the meantime...is there a way to tell POL where to find the cdrom since it is actually a DVD and has those 4 files in it?

Thanks for your time :)

As anyone managed to install from the downloadable version of BB and play with it? It would be useful since I log into Windows only to play BB ;)

There are some info in the Wine site but they are a bit cryptic.

Hello Danipenn,

Sorry of my delay but i was in Paris and i didn't have Internet.
Can you test my new script here :

I don't have your install version so say me if you have errors.

Sorry...I'm a bit noob, I can't find anywhere on the forum how to use the scripts.
Danipenn Zaterdag 18 Juli 2009 om 22:04

Found the way...I will try the script now :)

unable to find the cd rom. I tried every option, cdrom, cdrom0, cdrom1... even /media/BB (the name of the DVD) ...nada.

It doesn't matter that it is a DVD right? Stupid question?

If the media name is BB then type in terminal

cd /media/BB

then post the output here on the form

You should disable DVD check before we know what is the content of this DVD

cd /media/BB <---no such file or directory

cd /media/cdrom0


Thanks :)

If so then you have to use Berillions's script and select downloadable version. Berillions mustn't change anything in his script.

Just to make things a bit more clear :)

1. I insert the DVD

2. I start PlayOnLinux

3. Tools>run a non-official script

4. I select Berillions script (previously saved with a text editor)

5. The script runs>I choose my memory graphic>I choose downloadable version

6. I am asked where my cd rom is mounted

7. I select cdrom ----> unable to find the cd rom

8. I select cdrom0 ----> unable to find the cd rom

9. I select cdrom1 ----> unable to find the cd rom

10. I select other>I type /media/BB ----> unable to find the cd rom

11. I click cancel

Berillions made a typo
there should be
POL_SetupWindow_check_cdrom "SetupBloodBowl_edsr_efgis.exe"
instead of
POL_SetupWindow_check_cdrom "SetupBloodBowl_edsr_efgis.exe "

I corrected that so please try again.

Now it works, thanks...I just have to figure out a way to not type the serial again because the installations are limited and I am actually using the same computer even though the OS is different. Perhaps it cannot be done.

Thanks then :) I will set this issue to solved. I guess you can include that script in the script already in POL for Blood Bowl.

Anyway...the installation got stuck at the last bit while installing or trying to do something about .NET or something like that. I needed to kill the application but when I loaded BB it worked.

I did not updated it so I don't know if the automatic update works. I downloaded the patches and install them manually using Wine. It looked like it installed them but when I tried to load the game the automatic patcher still wanted to update the game.

I stopped when the game asked me to activate it since I didn't want to use another activation because I am not actually sure that the game can be updated, can be played and can be used in multiplayer as well without problems.

Thanks for your help :)

Hello Danipenn,

With my script i can use the automatic update, play the game (solo and mutloplayer).

Nice to know Berillions and thanks for your script :)
