How to play TOP on Linux

[Description]
I want to play TOP on my Linux box using WineHQ, and after a couple of days of trying still no luck... These are what I've tried:
(1) use different versions of TOP (EN/JP/CH)
(2) use different versions of WineHQ
(3) use different versions of Mono (an open-source and cross-platform implementation of the .NET Framework)

[Environment]
OS: Debian Sid (updated to the latest)
WineHQ version: 1.4 & 1.5.30-1
Mono version: 2.0 & 4.5

[How to reproduce the problem]
Try to execute the TOP launcher under the environment provided.

[Other things that I think might related (just guess)]
1. The native .NET might have used something that do not supported by Mono, even the latest Mono.
2. WineHQ might need some other libs to run TOP.
3. The TOP launcher.

I've tried searching Google and the forum posts, but there is not much about it.
Has anyone successfully played TOP on Linux?
May I have your suggestions (any will be highly appreciated)? Thanks in advance!

hello,

first thing you can try it to bypass launcher.
just run:
wine tetris.exe enc ip=tetrisonline.pl id=username pw=password

however i was not able to run game correctly, i get some error about memory allocation (i don't remember exact message). but last time i tried was years ago, so there may be some progress. let me know your results.

Unfortunately I have encountered the same problem as you did (bad allocation).

$ cd /media/d/game/top_ja/
$ env LC_ALL=ja_JP.utf8 wine tetris.exe enc ip=tetrisonline.pl id=my_id pw=my_pw
result: http://i.imgur.com/ZeNtlqS.png

$ cd /media/d/game/top_en/
$ env LC_ALL=en_US.utf8 wine tetris.exe enc ip=tetrisonline.pl id=my_id pw=my_pw
result: http://i.imgur.com/AGjEbVb.png

By the way, I can change the WINEDEBUG environment variable to show all debugging messages from wine:
$ env WINEDEBUG=all wine tetris.exe enc ip=tetrisonline.pl id=my_id pw=my_pw
However, the amount of messages it shows is so huge.
If you need these messages or coredump, just tell me and I will post it somewhere to let you see.

Thank you

hello, i don't think I need any additional logs, there is not much I can do about this issue. I am working on alternative client that will be crossplatform, but progress on it is slow, so i can't say when it will be available.

FWIW, Wine has improved in the past few years. I can run TOP on Linux just fine.

I was able to start the client under Wine 1.7, but got an "Unable to connect to server" error after the splash screen. 1.6 gave a "bad allocation" error. Any help, perhaps?

EDIT: I successfully started the client by using
Code: Select all
wine TOPLauncher.exe
instead of
Code: Select all
wine tetris.exe

Hope this helps anybody else who reads this thread.

Seems "bad allocation" error is fixed in current version of Wine. Also Wine support .NET executables now.

The absolute first utilization of term augmented reality traces all the way back to the 1800s when the inventive ways to deal with the photographs were applied to produce two aspects pictures. Various other electromechanical innovation based methodologies were utilized during the nineteenth century and a big part of the twentieth century. During this period, various computer generated experience devices like test systems were developed; these incorporate pilot training programs, the sensorama machine, head-mounted showcase HMD, and others.

The term computer generated reality (VR) was instituted in 1987 by Jaron Lanier, the originator of Visual Programming Labs (VPL), which developed goggles and gloves for augmented reality detecting experience. Later on, numerous imaginative developments fueled by Unity and C# computer generated reality software engineers for employ began arising in the commercial center in an annal request as recorded underneath
