this is a known problem (since June/July)
wine installs mono 4.9.x while creating a prefix and .net recognise it as already installed better version, hence it is not removed and the installer quits

removing wine mono with winetricks uninstall and winetricks --force dotnet40 or a manual install is needed to get it done
(or an older version of wine and winetricks)

see also here: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager. ... &iId=17886

for my installation
made a clean wineprefix with wine 5.11-staging, installed corefonts and msxml3
changed windows to XP, deleted mono and run a manual install of .net 4.0
installed dxvk via winetricks
deleted dll overwrites from dxvk in winecfg except for d3dx9_34, d3dcompiler_43, dxgi (solved the flickering/black launcher)

was able to run the game create a character and play

ahaa... thank you for clarifying this.

you did this manually and without Lutris right?

the thing is that i need to check Lutris then for people who use this.
i personally use my own scripts to setup and launch everything wine related also, but its not for everybody.

yeah, I do not use automated scripts as the troubleshooting is easier if I do everything on my own

Ok, good to know.. Also seems the Lutris installer still works

i'll add your detailed post link to the first post just in case some people run into trouble.

flickering and black issues
I use this simple method:

winecfg

Applications > Add application... > RoRLauncher.exe

click RoRLauncher.exe

Libraries > New override for libray : d3d9

Edit... set d3d9 disabled

OK done

Solve other d3d9 games that have flickering and black issues, use the launcher.exe and then game.exe

Next problem I'm encountering is with the mouse-look.

The mouse pointer itself works normally. Right-click and drag to look, and the screen goes wild (looks like lots of down-right events, no matter where the mouse is). The behaviour's consistent regardless of the full-screen settings of the game (and/or of the guest OS).

The tricky part is that this is Lutris (5.7), running on Ubuntu, inside virtualbox on MacOS (Catalina). Any pointers gratefully received.

what usually helps with mouse problems is to set up a virtual desktop in wineconfig and toggle "catch mouse in full screen"

Okay, so it turns out that the issue is VirtualBox's "mouse integration" (which does a sort of "seamless" mouse transition from the host desktop into the guest screen). I suppose that also explains the relative coordinates it was sending. Turning that option off makes the drag-to-look work correctly.

So I use manjaro, wine 5.18 and had a problem where when running the ROR launcher the two server lights were red and orange and the launcher wouldn't update.

I found installing lib32-gnutls fixed this for me and its working fine now.
