Installer - Sorta
What does not
What was not tested
Anything past the launcher
The installer hangs at the end when it tries to install the PhysX software. Tried to install PhysX software manually with no luck.
Once all the files are copied over from the installer, you can run the main launcher but if you try to run the game it crashes due to missing PhysX libraries.
Tested with 1.0.1, 1.1.31, and 1.1.32 with all the same problems.
Afterwards you can install them using the "daupdater.exe", which requires dotnet20 (.NET Framework2.0).you can install it using winetricks :
For 64 bits Users
In order to install the required components for Dragon Age DLC's, you will
have to create a 32 bits wineprefix and install everything there
(Dragon Age Origin included).
To create your 32 bits prefix : WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/path/to/wineprefix winecfg
To start winetricks in that prefix : WINEPREFIX=/path/to/wineprefix winetricks
To run Dragon Age from this prefix : WINEPREFIX=/path/to/wineprefix wine /path/to/DragonAge/daorigins.exe
If you experiment any bug listed above, or any non listed bugs, please report it to wine bugzilla, specifying your wine version : http://bugs.winehq.org/
This will help wine team to solve them.
HOWTO stop the flickering black movies
If you see black screen flickering during the cutscenes or/and on the main screen, you will need to run winetricks strictdrawordering=enabled

Solving GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY errors
by yushir on Saturday October 1st 2016, 5:58
If you have crashes in some particular scenes (e.g. when trying to look at the Ash Warriors in Ostagar or at the Fire where Duncan is on the Night) and you're getting GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY errors on the console, then you may need this workaround.
You will need this if the following helps you with these issues:
- Set Texture Quality to "Medium" or "Low". The crashes should no longer occur.
As a permanent fix (to be able to play with Texture Quality set to "High") just follow the instructions outlined here: www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/large-address-aware.112556/. Make sure to apply this flag to *daorigins.exe*. After this you should no longer get any crashes (e.g. I'm playing with everything maxed out and AAx4).
crashes on loading screen—possible framebuffer problem?
by nskaran on Monday March 24th 2014, 13:13
hi! i installed the game today, and i encountered a black screen upon loading but i fixed that with winetricks strictdrawordering=enabled. now, though, i get to the loading screen with the dragon, the dragon gets halfway across the screen, and then it freezes. it's unresponsive so i have to force quit to get back to the Steam window, and the debugger is open but when i try to get details it just loads forever—so i can't offer the debugger output, sorry!
here is the terminal output at the point when i think it starts having the problem, though: pastebin.com/fgCX4U2z
is this related to an acknowledged problem? does anyone have an idea of how to fix it?
