That also happens to me. You're probably trying to run the game from the «launcher» that wine installs. For some weird reason it doesn't work.

From a console, you have to change directory (cd /home/user/.wine/.../TASpring) and execute the executable from there (wine Executable.exe).

Optionally, you can create in the Desktop an aplication launcher using as command (wine "/path/executable"), don't remember well how it is, and with a working path to where the executable is. I guess that the wine executor tries to execute the Spring's executable from some other location and, if you do a link like this, it will assign a working path to the proper location and it will find the mods.

I know nothing about development and only a little more about linux, but something on this thread doesn't gel. If TASpring works in WINE without sync errors, why shouldn't a fix be possible for the native linux version? Surely you can just do whatever WINE does in order to get around this problem.

The problem is not something wine does, the problem is in the executable - the computations are slightly different depending on the compiler sping is build with.

So even if the difference is very very small in time this increases and everybody in the game gets to see another game 'state'. This can be fixed of course, by resending one state to everybody, but involves more work.

I actually open the spring exe itself using wine, right click > open with > wine so there is no problem in it finding it as i am already in the folder and have selected the correct exe file directly :S

Hopefully they will fix this problem with the new version or the actual linux port.

I am gonig to go back to fedora soon as suse has a few problems for me, fedora was rock solid.

:lol: Indeed! I've been thinking many times how ridiculous that is, even though i, kind of, understand why it doesn't work.
