What works

Neverwinter Nights II and Mask of the Betrayer install from DVD out of the box.

Autoupdate works out of the box after right-clicking and selecting "dedicated internet connection".

Game starts only after installing vcrun2005 and directx9 via winetricks (d3dx9 is not enough!).

Single player works great, as far as I can tell (tested character creation, tutorial, chapter 1 of the original campaign).

What does not

Everything seemed to work after installing vcrun2005 and directx9 via winetricks and changing some settings in winecfg (see additional comments below).

Additional Comments

I had to enable "emulate a virtual desktop" in winecfg, otherwise the resolution was restricted to 1280x960; this seems to be an issue that only affects Nvidia cards, see bug 11558. Gentoo's PulseAudio driver for Wine does not work with the game (no sound), probably due to the directx9 winetrick. The standard Wine Alsa driver works perfectly. I experienced one crash, it occurred during the first battle of the single-player campaign. Don't know if it's a bug in the game or in Wine. Was unable to reproduce it.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
  •  Use of dll overrides "devenum.dll" and "dxdiagn.dll" may be necessary for the game to run.
  •  Requires using winetricks to install directx9 and vcrun2005.
  •  The following registry key changes are recommended (Use the command "wine regedit" and then add them as strings to the appropriate directory):

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D]
OffscreenRenderingMode = fbo
UseGLSL = enabled
VideoMemorySize = 256

You may also put in whatever amount of memory your video card uses instead of 256.

  • To get the autoupdater to run, right click anywhere on the autoupdate window (except the status text part), and then click "dedicated internet connection". It should now work.
  • If you are unable to change resolution while using fullscreen mode, emulating a virtual desktop may be useful for getting the game to allow other resolutions.
