Installation, Configuration, Fullscreen and Window.

Graphics was full. 

What does not

Everything works correctly but you need MouseWarpOverride set to "force" to be able to use the mouse normally (360 degrees).

What was not tested

Tested 4 hours of gameplay.

Additional Comments

You need dotnet20 and be in wineprefix 32-bit since dotnet20 does not work on 64-bit.

Additionally to be able to use the mouse in a 360 degree manner, you need to set the MouseWarpOverride to "force" (mwo=force).

HowTo / Notes

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.
