winelol 1.3.25 released

For German translation, scroll down

Greetings Summoners,

few weeks are now gone since the last update, but today I’m happy to say, that winelol 1.3.25 ist out.

I readed in some blogs and webplattforms, that some users can’t connect to a game, while their Windows Version in WINE is set to win2k (Workaround for the freeze in game, while chatting). With this update you can set your WINE Windows Version to XP and the chat also works fine and a connection to the game is possible, too.

The update is now available for Ubuntu Version 11.04 (Natty), 10.10 (Maverick) and 10.04 (Lucid) at Launchpad / PPA from here:
This means, everbody who has actually add this PPA to the system will get it automatically while he update 😉

So, this is all for now. For questions use the comments section below 😉

Please, don’t forget, that you have to use the ACE Client (, because the Riot Patcher does not work with WINE actually.


NOTE: A “thanks” fly to RoosterCockburn, for his very nice tutorial. See here for a full guide to get this WINE Version running with LoL 😉

Grüße Beschwörer,

einige Wochen sind vergangen seit dem letzten Update, aber heute habe ich winelol in der Version 1.3.25 veröffentlicht.

Ich habe auf einigen Blogs und Webplattformen gelesen, dass einige Nutzer, welche die WINE Windows Version auf 2000 gesetzt haben (Workaround für das eingefrorene Spiel Problem beim Chatten) keine Spiel beitreten können. Mit diesem Update ist das Problem Geschichte, den nun kann die WINE Windows Version auf XP gesetzt und trotzdem gechattet werden. Ebenso ist es mit “XP” möglich dem Spiel ganz normal beizutreten.

Das Update ist ab sofort für die Ubuntu Versionen 11.04 (Natty), 10.10 (Maverick) und 10.04 (Lucid) über das PPA verfügbar:
Das bedeutet, dass jeder, der aktuell das PPA seinem System hinzugefügt und das Paket bereits installiert hat, dieses Update beim nächsten Systemupdate automatisch miterhält 😉

Das ist erst einmal alles für diesen Moment. Für Fragen und Probleme, benutzt den Kommentarbereich.

Bitte vergesst nicht, dass ihr den ACE Client ( für das Spielen von League of Legends mit WINE benützen müsst, da der offizielle RIOT Patcher aktuell nicht mit WINE funktioniert.


ANMERKUNG: Ein Danke geht an den User RoosterCockburn für sein gutes Tutorial mit diesem PPA. Das Tutoial kann hier (Englisch) eingesehen werden.

  1. Hm schön und gut nur wenn ich da neue wine installiert habe und dann wineloldeps eingebe kommt nur das.

    tino@tino:~$ wineloldeps
    wineloldeps: Befehl nicht gefunden

    und egal welchen Befehl ich eintrage wine oder sonst was es kommt immer Befehl nicht gefunden.

    Ich würde mich über Hilfe freuen

    1. Hi Tin0,

      die Symlinks (winelol, winelolcfg, etc.) wurden aus dem Paket entfernt (Siehe Changelog im PPA). Aus diesem Grund muss winelol entsprechend so ausgeführt werden:


      Seit heute Morgen gibt es wieder ein Update über das PPA (einfach drüber laufen lassen), welches auf wieder den wineloldeps Befehl enthält 😉


  2. Installed:
    Winelol 1.3.25
    Ace 3.11
    Video settings all very low

    Ubuntu 11.04
    CPU: core i5
    VGA: Intel HD graphics

    With Winelol 1.3.19:
    I had transparent HUD, It was fine I saw all on screen(but it was bug too)
    Now I install Winelol 1.3.25:
    Now I have absolute black HUD, no textures(I need to see only cooldowns but these are not visible)
    Chat is fine now

    I tried full reinstall ACE and new prefix, no changes


    Can someone help? please

    1. First, I also tried to play the game with an Intel HD Graphic, but at all, it is nearly unplayable with performance AND graphical glitchess in addition. Especially the glitches are not only in LoL available. For e. g. Hearts of Iron III also does not rendering right.

      Anyway, the only things that I have in my mind to fix problems like this are:
      1) deactive graphical effects at your Desktop
      2) try to play in a virtual desktop
      3) try it with an dedicated graphic card


      1. I have 19-24fps …It is OK for me ….

        1- tried metacity –replace nothing changes
        3- I tried dedicated but it freeze on loadin(summoning)g game

      2. You tried a dedicated graphic card and got a freeze of the game? – So which one did you tried? Which drivers are you using for this?

        You can’t deactive Unity’s 3D! You have to use the classic interface (logout–> Ubuntu Classic (at session choice)) or you install unity-2d on your system.

        I have tested this with an nVidia 450 GTS, nvidia 9800GTX and an AMD HD 5750 (propietary drivers) and everything was running fine.

      3. yes I tried dedicated vga ati 5650 with linux drivers(propietary drivers crash), and it always freeze after loading game when is status “summoning”

        I tried ubuntu classic(no effects), and with effects, but it is same as in unity… In virtualbox I have problem to run game …. In DxDiag no 3D available, and when I run game, I get some IE script error

  3. Hi all!

    I installed winelol and ace-client, dating it up to 3.11. Can anyone explain me how to change a region from Europe (I chose it when installing ace-client) to Europe North-East?

  4. Dows this actually work on a mac? I got version 10.5.8. I’m not sure what I should do, I have wine installed from your previous tutorial and when i try to install lol with “wine LeagueofLegends.exe” i get this error:

    Error writing log:Invalid handle

    wine: cannot find L”C:\\windows\\system32\\c++filt.exe”
    wine: cannot find L”C:\\windows\\system32\\addr2line.exe”
    wine: cannot find L”C:\\windows\\system32\\addr2name.awk”
    err:seh:setup_exception_record stack overflow 944 bytes in thread 0009 eip 7bc66760 esp 00ab0f80 stack 0xab0000-0xab1000-0xcb0000

    And after that nothing happens. Would installing winelol help and do i need that ace-client?

  5. I have Ubuntu 11.04 Natty.

    Game installed successfully, and patcher runs ok:

    But whith button “Play” pressed – i see that error after some seconds:

    In terminal i see this:
    err:ole:CoCreateInstance apartment not initialised
    fixme:wininet:FindFirstUrlCacheContainerW (0x2d49bb4, 0x2d49bc0, 0x2d49bbc, 0x00000000) stub

    fixme:wininet:IsHostInProxyBypassList STUB: flags=3 length=21
    fixme:wininet:InternetInitializeAutoProxyDll STUB

    Please help with running ACE under Ubuntu.

  6. its STRANGE. but it seems, that problem solved …

    i try to install ACE Client version 3.12.1 without any updates – and i see login screen now, but in queue:

  7. OK. I see that the problem appears after patching ACE client 3.12 with patch 3.12.1.
    And i dont know how to fix it 😦

  8. Thank you for your hard work!! Please add your work to the Wine applications list so future gamers can get going quickly! the current entry for LOL is bronze

    I just started using Linux Mint 11 several months ago. Wine is very confusing for me and seems counter intuitive. perhaps there’s some good resources you could point me to that would help me out. I think most of my difficulty has to do with the interface or my perception of what to expect. I would like to get Corel Draw running in Wine. I’ve tried the closest open source equivalents, and they’re ok, but lack so many features and are not nearly as refined. I’m an above average computer user, but not an expert

  9. ~$ sudo wineloldeps
    /opt/winelol/bin/wine cmd.exe /c echo ‘%ProgramFiles%’ returned empty string
    ~$ wineloldeps

    /opt/winelol/helpers/winetricks: 3336: rm: not found
    /opt/winelol/helpers/winetricks: 3336: mkdir: not found
    /opt/winelol/helpers/winetricks: 3336: mkdir: not found

    /opt/winelol/helpers/winetricks: 3336: grep: not found
    /opt/winelol/helpers/winetricks: 3336: sed: not found

    this is all I got when I tried to install.. any help?

    1. League of Legends does not work useful with WINE anymore!

      But anyway, it seems that something went wrong with your system! wineloldeps starts the winetricks script. Winetricks says that some normal Linux commands not found like mkdir (Create a directory).
      Basically these command are available at 99% of all Linux distributions … so it looks like that something is wrong with your system.
