WoT


Installation Requirements:

1.) wine-staging or wine-stable
2.) winetricks
3.) DXVK & vulkan libs (32 & 64 bit)
4.) wot installer


My System:

- Ubuntu 18.04 "bionic"
- NVidia 1050ti / Nvidia Driver 390.x
- AMD hexacore  (last gen before Ryzan)
- 16GB memory


Results :

- HD client with about 50 FPS on medium resolution

1.) wine-staging

First : if you have a 64 bit OS make sure that you have enabled 32 bit support.

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 

Now download the repository key :

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
sudo apt-key add winehq.key

Now add the repository:


sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main'

Note : For 18.10 you need to use cosmic main , instead of bionic main.

Now update your software list with :

sudo apt update

Install wine-staging :

sudo apt install --install-recommends wine-staging

No errors ? --- awesome. First step done !
Errors ? oh oh. Maybe you want to contact me via xmpp or send an email.



2.) winetricks

Piece of a cake :) Just type :

sudo apt install winetricks

We need to add some libs for wine using winetricks:

winetricks vcrun2015 msxml6 mfc40 mfc42 corefonts

Enter :

winecfg

and choose Windows 10 (win10) as a plattform  on the tab "Progamms / Anwendungen" (bottom left corner)



3.) Install Vulkanlibrabries and DXVK:

This will install the vulkan libs:

apt install libvulkan1:i386 libvulkan1

Now proceed to the page :

>>>>https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/releases<<<<

and download the latest package.
Go to the download location, untar (xvzf name_tar.gz) or right click "uncompress here".

Open a terminal (Term-MATE f.e. - hit the "windows key" and enter "term" - klick on "MATE-Terminal").

Change the directory to where uncompressed the tar.gz file (most likely /home/your_user/Downloads/DXVKx.x.x) and run the script  "setup_dxvk.sh" with "sh dxvk.sh".

This will install the necessary libs into the wine folder. 



4.) Download and install the original WOT installer

At the time  :
>>>>https://redirect.wargaming.net/WoT/launcher_install_eu<<<<

Right click on the downloaded .exe file and select "run with wine program starter".


That's it. Rest goes as usual.

Known issues :
- no fullscreen (needs to be windowed)
