Run in a console with the --no-opengl switch.

Along the same lines, just got registered yesterday and played for a few fun hours, then when I tried to run again the TWM window wouldn't open.

ran from console bare

Code: Select all

me@mymachine:~$ tmw 
Couldn't set 800x600x0 video mode: Could not create GL context
me@mymachine:~$
So I figured to try the same trick using --no-opengl

Code: Select all

me@mymachine:~$ tmw --no-opengl
tmw: unrecognized option '--no-opengl'
tmw

Options: 
  -h --help       : Display this help
  -v --version    : Display the version
  -u --skipupdate : Skip the update process
  -d --data       : Directory to load game data from
  -U --username   : Login with this username
  -P --password   : Login with this password
  -D --default    : Bypass the login process with default settings
  -p --playername : Login with this player
  -C --configfile : Configuration file to use
  -H --updatehost : Use this update host
  -S --homedir    : Directory to use as home directory
me@mymachine:~$
any other secret options I can try? :D

Updating your client.

If yours doesn't have that option, it's too old for use on our server. 0.0.29.1 is the minimum supported version.

You can build a newer one or use a Windows one under wine (works perfectly).

Hmm, ok ubuntu repository picked out 0.0.28.1 for me :(

Is there a repository for the latest version?

Or do I have to git my hands dirty (pun intended) building from source :D

1. You can use git version and compile.
2. You can use windows nightly build in wine. http://nightlies.manasource.org/
3. Or use unofficial repo with extended client. http://tmw.cetki.com/mana/
