Worked on MINT 18.3 but doesn't on 19.2?

I could get both "Dreamfall: The Longest Journey", and "The Longest Journey" (with some bugs and pixleation but it worked) to work with POL in MINT 18.3, but now for some reason I can't get them to work at all.

 

I also cannot send a crash report because my POL is "out of date" even though I just installed it.

 

Is there anyway to get POL to work with these games on MINT 19.2?

Hello, what editions of these games do you have ?: CD? steam ? GOG ?

Perhaps useful: http://wiki.playonlinux.com/index.php/Manual_Installations

It's because this system is off.

It's the GOG version. Install non listed didn't work either. I am pretty sure that there is some program package missing from 19.2 because the instillation doesn't even go right. At the points where things like gecko are supposed to be downloaded I keep getting POL crashes and eventually a "fatal error".

I could not get POL to work at all in MINT 19.2. I mean, even when just downloading the components like gecko it would give me error boxes until finally it would give me a fatal error box and stop altogether.

 

I have switched back to MINT 18.3, but for some reason now using the TLJ installer no longer works, it freezes when downloading "WindowsXP-KB975337-x86-ENU.exe", and when I try to bypass this by using the install a non listed program option, it will install it, but it will not display right. At first it just displayed the game in a small window, and now it completely screws up the resolution of my screen and one box that I can partly see when this happens says that I have a database deficiency.

 

I have attached images of the install process using the TLJ installer. (no I haven't because the forum won't let me)

 

 

And why doesn't POL work at all in 19.2?

 

Here's stuff from the debug window

Dreamfall TLJ now has no sound for no apparent reason. How to fix?

It's still a mistery for me.

What wine version? Older then 2.8 does not works on 19.2 with playonlinux

See https://www.playonlinux.com/en/topic-16681.html

Is there any change that POL will be fixed so that it will work? This stuff seems to be a bit over my head.

I think that POL v4 will not receive updates, perhaps you should ask in LinuxMint forums, there's maybe a trick to do.  Work in progress on v5 but no roadmap yet.
