Mine was this:

Code:
0288:fixme:ntdll:NtQuerySystemInformation info_class SYSTEM_PERFORMANCE_INFORMATION
00c0:err:clipboard:convert_selection Timed out waiting for SelectionNotify event
00c0:err:clipboard:convert_selection Timed out waiting for SelectionNotify event
0288:err:seh:dispatch_exception Fatal EXCEPTION_WINE_CXX_EXCEPTION exception (code=e06d7363) raised
0288:err:virtual:virtual_setup_exception stack overflow 2064 bytes in thread 0288 addr 0x7bc31f20 stack 0x1207f0 (0x120000-0x121000-0x220000)

And you can't just copy anything into the clipboard to fix it. It should be plain text like from a terminal or a text editor.

Yes, that's the same error as mine, and I confirmed last night that copying text into the clipboard fixes it. Thanks so much for identifying the root cause.

I'm now adding echo wtf | xclip -selection clipboard to my EU startup script to workaround the problem.

Upgraded wine to 6.5 and now wine throws:

Code:
wine: failed to load start.exe: 40000003

The solution is to use wine64 instead of wine to start EU.

I also observed another bug where copying images into the clipboard instantly crashes the client, so it's advised to avoid that while EU is running.

Does anyone have experience with Wine and configured Windows 10? I currently play in Windows 7-mode.

It's advised to install and use dxvk for better performance if your GPU is supported.
[/SPOILER]

Wanna explain this to me like I'm five? I tried installing dxvk using a couple guides that were at the top of Google search, but it doesn't seem to have worked. In fact, the client loader won't even launch. Good thing I'm trying this on a spare machine...

Because Mindark wants to support Windows 10 and up with UE 5. And even though it will be a while until that is released it'd help me to know how Wine is doing at this point. I mean it makes a difference if they're at "doesn't work at all", "most of it works" or "all is perfect" right now.

Would be more useful if you can provide relevant logs.

The client loader has been pretty unstable (random freezes) for me recently as well. Fortunately I only need to use it to perform VU updates otherwise I just launch the Entropia.exe directly.

I think iv been running in windows 10 mode ?(according to the winecfg Applications tab ?) no real noticeable difference. I was having issues with the 64bit version of the game not appearing (but running in system monitor)

The client loader has also been really unstable for me also. Downloading the planet data, the client loader kept freezing. Restarting it seemed to continue the download though.

But otherwise seems to be running fine for me on Pop-os.
(Also just a note im a total linux noob, having only just installed it a few hours ago :D)
