What works

Overall gameplay

What does not

wmv-based cutscenes, I'm sure you can get them to work in-game, it just wasn't worth the effort for me.

Workarounds

Initially game graphics do not work, you need to install the d3dcompiler_47.dll override via winetricks

(this issue can happen on Windows as well, in fact I did this test to determine what was causing this, d3dcompiler_47.dll is a hotfix update)

What was not tested

nothing, completed the game.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: open source

HowTo / Notes

needed libraries
The game needs dx9_36 and 42 and vcron2005sp1 to run
Amstream, devenum, quartz and wmp10 to enable ingame videos.
wine versions prior 1.5.10
adding AllwaysoffScreen=enabled in Direct3d in registry; probably solves problems (untested as of yet)
Advanced settings

Inside Darksiders folder create a folder with name config

On the next launch Darksiders.cfg file with extended options will be created.
