Can the game run on a virtual machine
« on: July 13, 2018, 08:25:19 am »
I'm wondering if this can be run that way. I mainly run Linux most of the time because of my work, and whereas I can log in and play by night time I don't have time to bot, which makes some crucial part of the game impossible to do most of the time.

I checked the requirements and technically seems like a VM could make it work, so I tried it. At first, all I was seeing was a black screen with sound, then changed the system settings to full screen 0 and the login screen just loaded fine. Then I logged in just fine, I could see my character and realm selection, clicked enter and the game loads but I'm back to a black screen with sound. I can hear the character steps if I move and  I can hear skills triggering if I click the buttons mapped to them, but I can't see anything.

Am I missing something? Help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Not really, I don't know if that's the case on Windows, but VirtualBox on Linux has experimental Direct3D support out of the box, you just have to enable it on the VM settings. Still not working fine though  :'( I just read another thread about running it with Play On Linux which claims to be working fine, but I'd need a weekend to check it out.
