View Full Version : Does Planetarian work under wine?

2005-10-24, 21:19
I'm getting a laptop with Ubuntu linux soon, and I was wondering if I would be able to run Planetarian with wine (http://www.winehq.com/), because I really don't want to dual boot into windows for it.

Well, reading around I found that Planetarian uses RealLive, and since Haeleth is is trying to make Kanon Standard Edition work with xclannad, I'm assuming you can not run RealLive with wine?

No this merely means he will add functionality to xclannad, a real life interpreter, to make Kanon work on it. This will make it run natively.
Anyways you might find this topic useful:

Thanks, I've been trying to find my SuSE LveCD to try it, and once I found it I found out it doesn't have wine on it.

If it is a relatively new version of wine it should work with no problems. I think all Reallive games work in wine nowadays.

Clannad works, but no Japanese text is displayed - you said in the other thread that it needed extra patches, and that appears to be the case.

Planetarian (full version) doesn't work; it pops up an error dialog that I can't read on account of Japanese text not working. I suspect the problem is that I'm using the installation on my Windows PC over the network, and it's probably complaining that it can't validate the installation; a version actually installed from scratch under Wine might well work.

Older versions of wine did require some patches to display japanese, but newer ones don't. I can confirm that Clannad and the Planetarian demo run on wine-20050725-r1 on Gentoo Linux. However, you have to run it in a Japanese locale (for example "LC_ALL=ja_JP wine .wine/drive_c/KEY/CLANNAD/REALLIVE.EXE"), else japanese text will be broken. Since the demo works, most likely the full version also works.

If anyone is interested in the patches for the earlier versions they can be found here: http://d.hatena.ne.jp/nozom/200407
Though to use them the version of wine has to be from about 200408 or earlier, else it won't build.

Gah, I knew I'd be missing something silly. Yes, with the locale set properly, Japanese text does work fine. Clannad works, Kanon Standard Edition works. Thanks for the tip!

Now that I can read the error message from planetarian, though, I find that it's failing with an "unknown error", not a meaningful message about the copy being locked to a different computer - the implication is that something in the DRM is actually not working. (There's no DRM in the demo version.)
