Additional Comments

Install on clean 32bit Wineprefix. Requires msxml3, dotnet2 and removemono via winetricks.

Now that this game uses Steamworks instead of GFWL it runs without any problems. Performance is not quite as good as with Windows but I can happily run it on Very High as long as Physx is disabled.

Phenom II x4 965 @ 3.4Mhz, Geforce GTX 660 2GB, 8GB (2x4GB) 1600Mhz DDR3.
Nvidia 338.13 driver and default 3.13 kernel

HOWTO Install and Run Batman

This requires a recent version of Wine.

You will not be able to save your progress in game.  

Using winetricks install dotnet20 and dotnet30.  

In the Steam directory containing Batman rename the installscript.vds file. 

~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/batman arkham asylum/

Install Phsyx and GFWLfrom ./redist.  The latter requires the switch /nodotnet to install successfully. 

Run BmStartApp.exe from the ./Binaries folder.  Authenticate your key (retrieve from Steam) and activate the game. 

Run BmStartApp.exe to play the game.  

If the game fails to start due to .net errors then two configuration files need to be updated as is described here.

This game needs an XBox 360 gamepad to work. A user has reported getting it working with another gamepad with x360ce.

Has anyone tested with 1.7.20?

Whenever I start the game, I hear the cutscene last for about a second, and then the sound stops and the game is frozen with a black screen.
