Retail version of Battlefield Bad Company 2
This includes: Steam version, DVD version, EA Digital Download version
Installing the game (via Steam).
Playing the game (single and multiplayer).
Logging in and setting up your soldier and tweaking the options.
What does not
You must force DX9 by altering settings.ini manually and changing DxVersion from auto to 9. Otherwise the game crashes at launch.
The login screen is a bit funny too. If you pull it up and type anything the game instantly crashes. The solution is to pull up the login window, then close it, then pull it back up. It then freely lets you type anything.
During multiplayer game play ... there is HEAVY texture glitching. The game is playable, but only just. Explosions and smoke seem to cause the bulk of the glitches.
What was not tested
Levels deep into the single player campaign.
Again ... MUST make the DX9 override, and beware the login window crash as well.

Securom sollution by kowaltsky:
Sollution by Alan Luth doesnt works for me, I have got another one:
- make sure, than Battlefield Bad Company 2 is in your DVD-rom!
1) open Terminal and use this command: sudo mkdir /mnt/cdrom
2) Open Wine settings (applications - wine)
3) Switch to tab witch discs
4) add drive D: and add mount point: /mnt/cdrom
5) now last step, open Terminal and use this command:
If that doesnt work, try sollution by Alan Luth.
Securom sollution by Alan Luth:
If you get Securom errors that the game cannot find the DVD, see:
short answer, try mounting with -o uid=$UID,unhide.
Also make sure you have symlinks to both the device and the mount point in ~/.wine/dosdevicesI have to avoid wineboot deleting my d: symlink before running this game. The whole recipe looks like
sudo mount -o ro,loop,uid=1002,unhide /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom ln -s /dev/sr0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/d:: winemine & ln -s /mnt/cdrom ~/.wine/dosdevices/d:
For this game, DirectX must be manually set to version 9 (default is 10).
To do this, do the following:
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/users/[username]/My Documents/BFBC2
Edit settings.ini and set the value of DxVersion from Auto to 9
This how-to extracted from a May 10th, 2012 comment by AJSB. This has not yet been tested by the current maintainer (Scott Weldon).
To fix sound problems, edit the file "~/BFBC2/settings.ini" Find the following line:
