I am wanting to install WeMod for steam Astroneer in lutris - sounds crazy I know, sick and twisted even, but I have an allergic reaction to Windows - it freaks me out, so I play all my Windows games under lutris on Linux Mint.
I have installed lots of mod loaders using the following methods before and I hope someone has some useful ideas…
I’ve downloaded the ‘ASTRONEER Trainier.exe’ and put it in the Astroneer directory under lutris’s winesteam runner here:
~/.local/share/lutris/runners/winesteam/prefix64/dosdevices/c:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/ASTRONEER
First I tried by opening a command shell under Astroneers wineprefix in lutris using the Winetricks option, then change to the above directory then execute the wemod installer:
‘mono ASTRONEER Trainier.exe’ which gives me a “Cannot open assembly ‘WeMod-Setup.exe’: File does not contain a valid CIL image.” error, so no go there…
So then I try using the Winetricks, “Run explorer” and I successfully launch the ASTRONEER Trainier.exe, yippee me thinks, it loads, I get the wemod splash screen and it maintains 0% download and after a bit it errors out with FAILED TO DOWNLOAD.
I am thinking that if I could get what the loader downloads I could manually install that… or something else???
