Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)

What works
Not much, installation fails


What does not

Installation. Most components appear to install correctly, but when I run the game it keeps trying to install the visual C++ 2008 redistributable. The installation window then closes, and the game does not start. No visible errors


What was not tested
Playing the game.


Additional Comments

Steam install stuck at "Must install steam service for this version of windows". Switching to wine to XP mode got around this, and allowed most of the components to install normally.

How to start the game without the launcher

The borderlands lancher is not working with wine. But to run the game, it is this application that steam starts first. To work around the problem, do the following:

Create a file named steam_appid.txt with the contents "49520" (without quotes).

Put this files into the Steam/steamapps/common/Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32 folder

 Then, every time you runs the game, first runs steam, and only when steam is running, start the game by running Borderlands2.exe (in the Steam/steamapps/common/Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32 folder)

Starts then stops with no message
by Adam Boesch on Monday October 28th 2013, 22:34
Hi, I have looked at many of the Borderlands 2 WineHQ pages, but still seem to be having trouble. I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 13.10, fresh Wine 1.7.4 install. I installed Steam through winetricks and installed the following so far:

winetricks d3dx9 \
d3dx10 \
vcrun2010 \
physx \
d3dx11_43 \
d3dx9_43 \
directx9 \
dotnet40 \
vcrun2008 \
xact

I tried running Borderlands 2 and got the common error that said I was still missing XAPOFX1_5.dll. I copied the DLL directly into the Borderlands 2 directory (same dir as the exe). Now when I run "wine Borderlands2.exe" I get the following:

$ wine Borderlands2.exe
fixme:heap:HeapSetInformation (nil) 1 (nil) 0
$

Then it exits. I'm not too good with WINE yet, so I'm pretty much at a loss as to what is going on. Any ideas?

borderlands 2 howto
by Andrew Jones on Monday July 15th 2013, 9:54
Installing borderlands 2 in wine sucked, but it works really well after some fiddling. If you miss the manual steps, sound quality is crazy bad.

When you start the game with -NoLauncher, it will give you an ugly .net error message because the launcher crashes... then start the game anyway.

# 1. set WINEPREFIX correctly

export WINEPREFIX=~/wine/borderlands2

# 2. winetricks installs

winetricks d3dx9 \
d3dx10 \
vcrun2010 \
physx \
d3dx11_43 \
d3dx9_43 \
directx9 \
dotnet40 \
vcrun2008 \
xact

# 3. extract/register extra dlls

cabextract -d /tmp -F Jun2010_XAudio_x86.cab \
~/.cache/winetricks/directx9/directx_Jun2010_redist.exe

cabextract -d $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/system32 -F '*dll' \
/tmp/Jun2010_XAudio_x86.cab

wine regsvr32 $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/system32/XAudio2_7.dll

# 4. set wine overrides (this you do manually)
# sound quality is massively improved with these overridden
#
# set "mmdevapi" to "builtin"
# set "dsound" to "builtin"
#

# 5. set steam launch options (this you do manually)
#
# right click on Borderlands 2 entry, hit "properties"
# click "Set Launch Options"
# enter -NoLauncher in box
#
# disable steam overlay for extra performance

Messed up graphics
by subraizada3 on Thursday June 20th 2013, 13:15
I got Borderlands 2 to work, using 1.6-rc2. There is no steam_appid.txt, and I execute Borderlands2.exe.
The screen with the 4 faces appears, then it goes through the gearbox/nvidia screens.
After that, I can play the game, but the graphics are full of red dots and lines. I tried downloading the game 3 times, and my internet can usually download many gigabytes with little to no packet loss.
However, some things look fine, like the buttons on the main menu, the health bar, and the minimap. The snow and wind effects in the beginning also look fine.

My graphics card is a GTX 680 (no overclocks). I am using the nvidia-experimental-310 drivers in the Ubuntu repos (the stable drivers make little boxes in the top left of the screen). My distro is 12.04, Wine version 1.6-rc2 from the Ubuntu Wine PPA. Everything is 64 bit, except the game itself (and Steam). I used winetricks to install d3dcompiler_43 d3dx11_43 d3dx9 all d3dx9_XX mfc42 msvcirt msxml3 physx vcrun2003/5/8/10 vcrun5 vcrun6sp6 xact_jun2010

Also, if I run the game in windowed or fullscreen windowed mode, the window manager makes a about 800x600 rectangle and only the top left of the game fits in it. If I let Wine control/decorate the windows, the window shows up in every workspace.

Here are some pictures of the issues:

Borderlands 2 launches but screen disappear after 4 faces
by Raphael on Wednesday June 12th 2013, 0:16
Starter launches fine thanks to the trick mentioned here.
After that, 4 faces appear and stay for like 3s, then game sounds starts, and resolution of my screen is changed to a smaller size (not 16/9 style)

Then I only see the desktop. If i click I here things happening (hear menus of the game clicking) but i cannot see anything. The screen remains on the destok of linux mint 15.

extract from terminal, if anyone has an idea please share . im new to wine: I use Wine 1.4.1 and configurated it as WindowsXP. Steam seems to be running fine.

I was able to get the Borderlands.exe to run once, on the first time after installing to Steam, but subsequent launches never run the game. The first run did all the Steam installs as usual and gave me the splash screen and the 4 faces, but then changed my desktop resolution and didn't show the intros, only the sound. Once I fixed the desktop resolution in the ini file and tried again I'm stuck.
It appears that whether I use the trick in the How To to launch the EXE directly or the normal way in Steam (with the -NoLauncher option set in launch options) I briefly get a pop up window of Steam installing the DirectX redistributable package and then nothing happens. Using the winetricks taskmanager I don't even see the game process open. It seems that Steam wants to keep trying to install the DX package and maybe that is failing silently, I'm not sure.
At this point I'm pretty frustrated since I've done at least 3 new wineprefixes for this game that I see works for everyone else. Did anyone else run into this problem, or know a way I can force Steam to reinstall its packages? I'm using wine 1.5.30 and I had also tried with 1.5.25. I've even tried using the PlayOnLinux front end to organize the prefixes, in case I was doing it wrong.

error code 2
by kham on Monday April 29th 2013, 12:16
I can't get this game to work. After downloading it goes to "completing instalation", gets stuck at 1% and gives error code 2. I didn't create the steam_appid.txt as it was already there when I went looking. I tried running from steam, borderlands2.exe and launcher.exe. Launcher.exe gives "The entry point method could not be loaded", from steam or borderlands2.exe I can't see any error message, just a lot of fixme:volume:GetVolumePathNameW in the terminal after which is just gives error in steam and closes. Installed in clean prefix twice, used winxp and windows 7 for default, and applied directly to steam but it doesn't work. Googling the error specifically in steam only gave me an idea that is has something to do with permissions but nothing on how to fix it. I tried with wine 1.5.22, 1.5.28 and 1.5.29. Same results in all of them.

If you have resolution problems
by Mahdi on Monday April 15th 2013, 7:23
If you have any resolution problems, you can fix it by editing configs file in your ' My Games ' directory, Borderlands 2 -> WillowGame -> Config -> WillowEngine.ini

Change these lines:

StartupFullscreen=true
StartupResolutionX=Yours
StartupResolutionY=Yours

Game Starts, but I don't see the game.
by David K Harupa Jr. on Thursday February 14th 2013, 0:34
Wine - 1.5.23
OS - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

I have done the "how to" to bypass the launcher issue. Steam is always opened first before running the "Borderlands2.exe". The picture of the 4 playable characters shows up, the screen goes black and then I see my OS GUI in a smaller resolution. I am able to move my mouse and nothing is frozen or laggy. Steam says I'm currently playing Borderlands 2 but I can't see the game. I am running the game with a virtual desktop, and I have tried many different resolutions.

Won't launch
by Ren Bedell on Sunday February 10th 2013, 12:26
I added the txt file as instructed but the game still won't launch from Steam or the borderlands2.exe file. I do not get an error, just nothing happens. I notice when I verify integrity of game cache, the borderlands2.exe file always needs to be redownloaded.
Anybody have any ideas on how to fix this?

Problem
by Joseph Williams on Sunday January 20th 2013, 3:52
I originally used PlayOnLinux to install Steam on a Mint14 install, Borderlands 2 just kinda worked (after the file tweaks).

I copied the config/prefixes/PlayOnLinux over to my new Arch install and again it just kinda worked.

Im not a fan of how POL handles a lot of stuff so I went about creating my own prefixes and a common program install directory linked to drive D:\ in Wine so I could switch prefixes/wine version easily without touching the games/steam.

I used winetricks to install steam in the new win32 prefix and copied the steamapps folder over. Booted up steam which worked as expected but Borderlands 2 wont start anymore.. closed steam and opened the PlayOnLinux steam, Borderlands 2 is doing the same thing so I've managed to bork something.

Here is the output of debug (warn+all) starting from when I select play on Borderlands 2 in Steam. > pastebin.com/SUWNbppK

I looked through it and installed various things via winetricks for some of the missing files (I assume it found them elsewhere anyway, but I was out of ideas).

Anyone have any clue? I even removed some packages that I installed recently as it seems to be prefix/wine independent now and therefore perhaps system related (also tried wine versions 1.5.10-1.5.22)

I also deleted and reinstalled Borderlands 2 via Steam in case the files were botched.. nothing changed. As I said it was working before I tried to do it manually, so the appid and file renaming was/is done.

Theres no crash or error displayed, the steam "launching Borderlands 2" popup displays for a split second. My icon turns green as if im in a game and turns off again after a second and steams sitting there looking at me wondering what im waiting for.

New 3DM crack...
by McDude on Wednesday December 12th 2012, 18:07
There are new 3DM cracks with fixes and DLC support:
bbs.3dmgame.com/thread-3384716-1-1.html
Latest is v.10 which seems to be the 1.2.2 equivalent.

Sadly, I'm unable to install it since I don't know Chinese. When I unrar the installer (230mb torrent found on isohunt) and try running it, I get an error and it doesn't decompress using 7zip. Google translate suggest it's necessary to copy the installer to the binary dir but it didn't do much for me...

If anyone in here knows some Chinese, and can work out the process, please give this crack a shot and report back your steps or even upload a crack only to overwrite the SkidRow release.

Don't know about you guys, but just this one Christmas, I want NOT to return the gift I've got since it won't run on Linux :(

Game runs ungodly slow
by aleks litynski on Saturday November 24th 2012, 11:38
I've got the same resolution problem everyone else seems to have. I can handle that. The game even seems to start up. The 2k logo and nvidia logo play fine. Then, when the copyright info is displayed, everything slows to a crawl. 5 fps, max.
When the game starts to check for dlc, it gets even slower, and never moves past that screen.
Am I doing something wrong here?
I have a radeon graphics card that seems to be working with catalyst drivers and I used playonlinux to install steam initially. I think it installed wine v.1.5.10.
Any thoughts or advise?

Game quit working immediately after posting test data.
by Matthew Taraschke on Friday November 9th 2012, 8:31
OK, here is the deal. I got the game working flawlessly and even played it online with some friends for 5 or 6 hours. I know the game CAN work perfectly in wine, but for some reason it just stopped. I did a clean install of my OS, installed wine, did the same tricks everyone else does to get it working "add steam_appid.txt, use borderlands2.exe instead of launcher.exe, etc", but for some reason it crashes silently. When I run it at the command line, I get the following error:

$ wine Borderlands2.exe

Has anyone else had this problem? Is there anything I can check? Any tips would be awesome!

How frustrating...
by Matthew Taraschke on Wednesday November 7th 2012, 1:43
1 day after I got the game working perfectly and submitted test data, I rebooted my computer and all of a sudden it doesn't work any more. When I launch the game now, borderlands2.exe doesn't even stay up long enough to show up in TOP. Nothing has changed, I don't understand. Tried reinstalling the game, no-go. About to try reinstalling Steam AND the game. If that doesn't work, I'm going to completely reinstall wine, steam, and the game.

Catalyst and Borderlands 2
by Dan on Saturday October 13th 2012, 20:14
So when I launch the game under radeon drivers (after building mesa with --enable-texture-float) I can run it, albeit at severely limited framerates. When I run it under Catalyst 12.8, the game window is launched and you hear the start of some audio before it freezes completely, requiring the program be killed off manually.

Launcher

Set the launch options inside steam to "-NoLauncher". There will still be a window that crashes but the game will start regardless.

Ways to Increase Performance

I've applied a few tweaks to the game and I've gotten some pretty solid performance out of it. (Only very, very, VERY slightly less than on Windows.)

My rig:
Intel i7 920 @3Ghz
Geforce GTX 560Ti
More RAM than I need (24G)
SSD

Tweaks:

- Disable FXAA
- Turn Antistropic Filtering to 8x
- Turn Draw Distance from Ultra High to High (1 notch down)
- Disable Steam Overlay

I've noticed that the Draw Distance and Steam Overlay seem to provide the biggest boost in performance. With these options set, I get near-native Windows performance; it takes a second or two longer to load than on Windows (my buddy is usually already running away from me when I spawn after an area change, and he's got the same rig as me, just on Windows), but it's barely noticable.

Additionally, the visuals don't look significantly worse with those changes above. Some visualphiles might notice a few more jaggies (due to no FXAA) but I really can't tell a difference at all.

Borderlands 2 crashes after launch
by André Fettouhi on Friday September 21st 2012, 1:34
I got borderlands 2 running with the dotnet 4.0 workaround as mentioned below but after when all the logos appear and the game tries to create an online session it crashes for me with a fatal error.

Fatal error!

Well, i install the game (also i istall directx, vcrun2005, vcrun2008, vcrun2010, xact + manually install XAPOFX1_5.dll from directx_Jun2010_redist.exe).
And now i get error:
Unhandled Exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'PresentationFramework, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002

Looks like game need .net4.0. I tried that guide - appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=24915 but i still get that error.

I also tried no-dwd, but it not help.
