             Bug #: 28907
           Summary: Ragnarok Online (LimitRO private server) freezes
                    supposedly due to wrong color depth.
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.3.31
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: defectoscopny at gmail.com

Screenshot of Metro.exe being run in wine 1.3.31

Running Ubuntu Natty with wine 1.3.31, video card is nVidia GeForce 8600M Gt.

When running the game executable, the game launches yet immediately freezes and
is quite dark (see screenshot.png)
I have read on winehq and a wiki devoted to running RO under wine
(http://wiki.jswindle.com/index.php/Ragnarok_Online ) that this is because wine
tries to change color depth to 16 bit and fails, hence
"fixme:x11drv:X11DRV_desktop_SetCurrentMode Cannot change screen BPP from 32 to

The solution mentioned in that wiki involves tampering with a "wine config
file", although, as far as I know, wine 1.3 doesn't have one and uses registry
instead, so it didn't work for me. I also read a wine how-to about running a
256-bit mode with a separate x server, but those didn't work either.

Many thanks in advance. Will provide more information if requested.
