Thief Gold GOG install
|kunakuna||Wednesday 24 April 2019 at 21:35|
I'm relatively new to Linux and am having difficulty installing Thief Gold from GOG. Would appreciate it if someone can offer me some guidance based on the errors I'm getting. I've tried two methods of installation:
1. Finding Thief Gold in the menu of supported games and installing through that
2. Manually installing according to this guide: http://www.gamersonlinux.com/forum/threads/thief-gold-guide.909/
Both methods result in "Runtime Error (at 73:445)", followed by "Runtime Error (at 210:800): Out of Stack Range", "Runtime Error (at 210:806): Out of Stack Range", and "Out of Global Vars Range". The installer (GOG, not POL) then shows the message "Thief Gold was installed successfully". Next, POL presents this error:
Error in POL_Shortcut
I'm running Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit and presumably have the most recent version of Thief Gold from GOG because I downloaded it from the site today and attempted to install.
I then attempted to enter the Thief Gold virtual directory and run the .exe file, which resulted in this long error message:
Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x00000000 in 32-bit code (0x005203fa).

Looks like the script is using a super old version of Wine.
Try clicking "Configure" in PlayOnLinux
Then select the Theif Gold virtual drive on the left side
On the General Tab you can click the + to download a newer version of Wine.
Try downloading Wine 4.0 or newer
Click the down-arrow to select Wine 4.0 for this game
