Howto: Patching windows Tibia in wine

The game Tibia is oddly running better for me with the Windows version trough wine than the native Linux client. Lately the game got updated and while the automatic patcher was running I encountered the error saying it needed "administrator privileges" to run the patch.

Rather than making wine run as administrator (witch is fairly impossible) or reinstalling the client. There is a easier solution:

  1. Let the client try to automatically patch itself, and exit when it encounter the error.
  2. All new files is already downloaded, so all you need to do now is copy them into the Tibia folder.
    cp ~/.wine/drive_c/users/Public/Application Data/Tibia.bak /home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Tibia/Tibia.exe

    cp ~/.wine/drive_c/users/Public/Application Data/Tibia_dat.bak /home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Tibia/Tibia.dat

    cp ~/.wine/drive_c/users/Public/Application Data/Tibia_pic.bak /home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Tibia/Tibia.pic
  3. Start Tibia trough wine.
Simple.
