[solved] FBX plugin and Gamestudio on Linux / Wine - 09/11/19 14:56

Hello Community,
Hello JCL,

I`m using Gamestudio on the operating system Linux Mint 19.2 with Wine 4.0.2 installed. Gamestudio works okay most of the time, but there is an issue with MED and the FBX plugin. I use Blender to create my models and parts of the levels and therefore I need FBX import/export in MED. But it seems that tehere is some missing dependency .. the menu entries for FBX import / export are missing. Is there anything I can do to solve this problem?

Here are some screenshots that show the problem:

Thanks for your help laugh

Hello,

if i remember correctly, fbx plugin needed "Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable" to work.

3D GameStudio A8 install guide for Linux:
------------

- Install Wine for Linux (version 4.0.2 is tested and works well)
- Install latest Winetricks from https://wiki.winehq.org/Winetricks
- Create a 64 Bit Wine prefix
- Running winetricks, choose standard wine prefix -> install WIndows DLL. Install d3dx9_43, mfc42, ogg.
- In Winetricks -> choose standard wine prefix -> install fonts: Install all Microsoft fonts.
- Navigate to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14632 and install Visual C++ Libraries x64 manually using Wine.
- Download "mfc42d.dll" from https://de.fix4dll.com/mfc42d_dll and copy it to /home/yourUsername/.wine/drive_c/windows/syswow64

Enjoy WED, MED, SED and Gamestudio laugh . It runs very well.
I recommend to use the native Linux programs "Geany" instead of "SED" and "Blender" instead of "MED".

Hi Rondidon!

Can you please give us some tips on 'how to setup Geany' to get it working with acknex? I think it would be useful as well! Thank you laugh
