Summary0008895: 1.5 does not work under Wine/Linux

On Wine, MTA 1.5 crashes everytime with:

Version = 1.5-release-7307.0.000
Time = Wed Jun 24 18:00:34 2015
Module = C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas\proxy_sa.exe
Code = 0xE06D7363
Offset = 0xFFC00000

Automated of installation of vcrun2013 within MTA installer failed:

I've reinstalled it manually with winetricks vcrun2013.

Tested on two different computers with 64-bit Ubuntu. MTA 1.4 works flawlessly on them.

"As Wine is bad in terms of the anticheat anyway, Wine support may be dropped soon entirely."

Considering how many problems Wine has and considering how few people must use it, IMO it's not worth the effort.

You can make it work by manipulating some dlls and other things, but CEF will not work by any means (it will not be visible). This is related to Chromium issue under Wine which is probably going to stay like that (according to winedb). I suggest switching to VMware.

I get the same error and I find it kinda annoying that I really need to run windows to be able to play it. So yeah someone please port MTA to osx so we can expand our player base even more!

Whoever wants to run mta 1.5 under Wine, I use these library replacements:

amstream (external)
atl110 (external,internal)
atl120 (external,internal)
browseui (external,internal)
crypt32 (external,internal)
gdiplus (external)
hhctrl.ocx (external,internal)
hlink (external,internal)
iernonce (external,internal)
iexplore.exe (external,internal)
inetcpl.cpl (external,internal)
inseng (external)
itircl (external,internal)
itss (external,internal)
jscript (external,internal)
jscript.dll (external,internal)
mlang (external,internal)
mshtml (external,internal)
msimtf (external,internal)
msvcp110 (external,internal)
msvcp120 (external,internal)
msvcr110 (external,internal)
riched20 (external,internal)
secur32 (external,internal)
shdoclc (external,internal)
shdocvw (external,internal)
shlwapi (external,internal)
url (external,internal)
urlmon (external,internal)
usp10 (external,internal)
uxtheme (external,internal)
vcomp110 (external,internal)
vcomp120 (external,internal)
xmllite (external,internal)
msvcr120 (external,internal)

Wine version is 1.7.53 (32 bit version, POL).
The game works, not sure which libraries are important and which are not. CEF seems to work (?), haven't tested it properly yet. Overall performance is lower than Wine 1.4.1 but it's still playable.

Great news Gallardo, I'm already hating vmware performance (it was so much better on wine), unfortunately I still can't run 1.5 with these settings.

I can confirm that vcrun2013 installs without errors after upgrading WINE to newest 1.7.x.

I'll fiddle with libraries a litle bit though, and maybe it will finally work ;).

edit: after switching windows version to XP, everything just works, including CEF! :D

I know that this is a little off-topic, but if someone managed to get MTA: SA 1.5 working under Linux, it would be worthwhile to update this Wiki page: . That way Linux users will be able to play MTA: SA 1.5 with ease.

Sure thing Alex, I'll rewrite this manual this weekend. I'm currently trying to establish minimal stable configuration.

MTA launches with black screen with Wine version starting at 1.7.54. Consider using STAGING versions of Wine, 1.7.55-staging from POL seems to work well. It provides better performance than 1.7.53 as for me. It's likely that pulseaudio layer is the reason because alsa-to-pulse had to provide double sampling causing double impact on CPU with audio.

Forgot to mention it requires XP as Windows version, right. Should have said it earlier.

I'm going to close this since this is an issue directly related to a crash. I'm glad that you guys have found a solution for the issue.

If anyone needs fonts, they can be found here:

These were the files that we needed to get MTA running on OS X. There's also a winmm.dll file in there but I do not know if it is relevant anymore.
