|Summary||0000450: "Access denied" trying to launch GTAIV|
For various versions of Wine I have tried, the usual outcome of trying to launch GTAIV through GTAC launcher was "access denied".
Disabling mods doesn't make a difference, only trying a different Wine version helped in the past.
Wine versions affected:
Wine versions working:
|Tags||Crash, GTA 4 Connected, GTA Connected GTA 4 crash, Linux, Proton, Wine|
Update to the issue:
Occasionally, the "access denied" error dialogue won't be present, and instead, Wine will display an unhandled exception in the logs:
014c:err:seh:NtRaiseException Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0x7eba0104
This time the address is shown, maybe it could help with the process of finding the issue.
Also, I used a FS logger on the wineserver process and found that this is the likely culprit:
Presumably, editing the game process memory was denied to the launcher.
Maybe this is distribution specific, the issue has been occurring on Arch Linux and Artix Linux (which is what I am using now).
Update: With Esync and Fsync disabled, GTA Connected actually works!
As a side-note, considering that anticheat disabled mods I use that actually fix the game, I had to use -availablevidmem 0.6 because -nomemrestrict and -norestrictions didn't work, and my card has over 2 GB of VRAM.
The value (0.6) can be altered with this formula:
What is Esync and Fsync? Is that specific to WINE?
Yes. As far as I know, Esync and Fsync are Wine optimisations related to FS access that aren't upstream, but are featured in Proton and many custom versions of Wine.
