'''Aion''' The Tower of Eternity (Korean: 아이온: 영원의 탑) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing [[game]] (MMORPG) released in Korea, China, North America, Australia and Europe.
Aion was (up until May 20, 2009) known as "Aion: The Tower of Eternity" but it was released in North America under the one-word title of Aion. The game developer is NCsoft's Aion Team Development Dept, a major Korean game developer. Aion combines PvP and PvE (a concept the developers call PvPvE) in a fantasy game environment.
A feature of the game is flight, which is mainly used as a means for combat. Other games in this genre typically offer flight only as a means of travel, while combat stays on the ground. It currently has 7 million subscribers.
This article will describe how install and run it using [[Wine]] & [[Virtualbox]].
== Installation and setup ==
Aion doesn't work "out of the box" on Linux system, you need to copy the updated directory from a Windows system to your Linux system.
===Temporary solution for installing/patching===
If you have a Windows system on a separate machine, install and update the game from there before copying it to your Wine directory.
If you don't, you need to install Virtualbox, and Virtualbox-additions.
  pacman -Sy virtualbox-ose virtualbox-additions
Add your user to the '''vboxusers''' group
  # gpasswd -a USERNAME vboxusers
Then edit /etc/rc.conf as root and add vboxdrv to the MODULES array in order to load the VirtualBox drivers at startup. For example:
  MODULES=(loop vboxdrv fuse ...)
Create a new virtual machine and install Windows.Once installed, don't forget to share the '''/home/username/.wine''' ''(replace username with your user)'' with your virtual machine to minimize virtual machine disk consumption.
Install & update the game in your virtual or separate Windows.
Install wine using pacman:
  pacman -Sy wine
To make the game run in wine you have to install winetricks:
  pacman -Sy winetricks
Using winetricks you must install: d3dx9, vcrun2005 (sp1) and dotnet20
  sh winetricks d3dx9 vcrun2005 dotnet20
The game opens large amount of file descriptors, therefore you must raise the security limit for your user:
As root add the following lines to /etc/security/limits.conf:
  '''yourusername''' soft nofile 8192
  '''yourusername''' hard nofile 8192
Replace '''yourusername''' with your user
Save files and reboot to make changes go in effects. Confirm if it works by writing into terminal­:
  ulimit -n
==Running Aion==
:''Source : http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=17877''
You can finally run the game using this command in the Aion directory:
For EU users:
  wine b­in32\aion.bin -ip: -port:2106 -cc:2 -noauthgg -lang:enu -noweb
For US users:
  wine  bin32\aion.bin -ip: -port:2106 -cc:1 -noauthgg -lang:enu -noweb­
