Could you post the contents of your log file? Its ~/.tmw/tmw.log (which is normally C:\Documents and Settings\username\.tmw\tmw.log under WinXP).

Im not running the lWinxp version. I use linux O.S.

lol i just wanna play this game before tibia makes me loose my sanity -.-

I think the problem is that i havent "created " a char, thus it does not appear on the "select character" screen . So how would i go about creating my char?

Register an account before you create a character.

Click the "New" button on the "Select Character" screen. This will lead you to the character generation screen.

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

Try clicking the "New" button in the character selection screen.

Make sure you are running tmw 0.0.25, it will be in the upper left of the screen when you first start tmw. If you are running 0.0.25, and it still crashes on you, attach your log. (the log is located in /home/$USERNAME/.tmw/tmw.log)

Your client is horribly out of date. Please update to at least 0.0.25.

It won't complain about equipment.xml in newer clients. We removed the need for it a while ago.

Ok so basically , i found out some more about why it refuses to work ,but im not computer pro so ill just tell you what i know and hopefully it helps explain the issue.


So when i first got the game , it was from my synaptics package manager . It only has the older version which i didnt realize until just now. So that version is set up via the manager in my "games" .

If i open any newer version that i download it just opens the older version thats already been installed.

However if i remove the version i got from my package manager theres a new issue. when i open the new version the file to open the game itself is not present. usually theres that big green globe icon that starts the game . but without the older version from before it wont even show up.

idk what that might mean . im trying to get help from a friend of mine but ...0o.

That can (and probably will) cause problems, as their version of Ubuntu must be quite old to only have a version that needs equipment.xml.
