Diablo 3 launcher stuck at updating tools

Back in Windows (7) the installer did pretty much the same as under wine.

This morning my mailbox opened up with an email inviting me to the Diablo 3 Beta.After checking the headers to make sure it wasn’t another battlenet phishing scam I noticed that the Received headers really came from blizzard.com, and they even signed the mail with a domainkey.We can always see how it’s supposed to look in windows later.So after updating wine to the latest git version (wine-1.3.28-308-gae80430) and creating a new prefix we run the installer: [email protected]:/storage$ mkdir diablo3 && cd diablo3 [email protected]:/storage/diablo3$ export WINEPREFIX=/storage/diablo3/[email protected]:/storage/diablo3$ winecfg # Make sure everything is allright [email protected]:/storage/diablo3$ wine Diablo-III-Beta-en At some point this thing seemed to be stuck doing nothing useful.Until then we’re stuck on windows 🙁 After getting the thing running under windows (which was a lot easier) and logging onto battle net I immediately managed to get the first error.

One of my friends sent me a friend request, which I clicked of course. (names removes from image) Other than that, and a disconnect fairly soon after starting the first game that felt like a “server is down” in World of Warcraft (I could move but my friend couldn’t see me move, we could chat though) the game plays quite nicely.

If only they let me disable p2p or change the port… Looking through the Agent logs I repeatedly saw stuff appearing like: Funny. Hopefully Blizzard works on this part before they release it.

However, after mucking around with it for another hour and eventually even setting up the 6881 port forward there was still no improvement. But I guess they Wine people will try to make it work even if Blizzard doesn’t.

Telling it to install in Not only did I see the bar go up, but I could also see files appear in the destination folder.

If Diablo 3 is like World of Warcraft it will happily run after copying over those files, or at least, that’s the new plan.

You can always do the normal things Blizzard tells you to do when it comes to delete files.
