What works

  • Launch
  • Character selection, export, import, multiplayer use
  • Gameplay: Movement, attack, skills, keyboard shortcuts
  • UIs: inventory/armor, character attributes and skillpoints, map, logbook, options
  • Saving, loading, quick variants also
  • Graphics: Blood and shaking effects, FXAA, all three zoom levels
  • Multiplayer: Gameplay, chat, item exchange, quest synchronization
  • Mouse follows enemies, changes texture based on pointing target (smith: hammer, trader: money bag, enemy: sword, etc.)

What does not

  1. Videos don't play
  2. KDE: Game window opens in the top left corner, but the game itself is "glued" to the middle of the screen
    Mouse input also only shows if the mouse is moved on the "glued" part in the middle regardless of the X window positon.


  1. winetricks wmp9 directshow
  2. Enable virtual desktop on 1024x768; draws the game in the X window and enables moving it

  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Tested on AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, kernel 5.9.10-arch1-1, KDE Plasma 5.20.3, Mesa 20.2.3.

I noticed a strong performance degradation on Windows 7+ with Intel integrated graphics when zoomed out. More test data with Intel on Linux are appreciated.
I do not own NVidia cards to test this with them. If you own NVidia, please install the game without winetricks, start a new game and play five minutes completely zoomed out. Then submit your data.
