What works

I've purchased the Grim Tales 8in1 bundle DVD and when I launch inst.exe a window opens asking me which of the 8 games I'd like to install. If I pick one the Big Fish Game Client will be installed but fails to launch. 

What does not

If I pick one of the 8 games from the Grim Tales 8in1 bundle DVD the Big Fish Game Client will be installed but fails to launch. Launching the bfgclient.exe manually with wine doesn't do anything.


winetricks -q ie6 or ie7 or ie8 but that doesn't help.

What was not tested

Since the Game Client doesn't launch, no game from the DVD gets installed through it. So;

  • installing a game with bfgclient
  • launching a game with bfgclient
  • actual gameplay with bfgclient

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

If I enter one of the games folders on the DVD and install it manually i.e. for "Grim Tales - The Bride" it's installer_gF6741T1L2_l2_s2_d0_xrtderogrimbri_k.exe the game files are installed and I can launch the games directly bypassing the Big Fish Games Client.

HowTo / Notes


Run winetricks -q corefonts before installation.

How to install your games under WINE if you have a Windows installation

This is a hint for those who have a Windows installation of the Big Fish Games. Originally suggested by Booman.

Just copy the installed game folders from your Windows system (usually under C:\Program Files; or as you chose during the initial installation of the client) to the WINE virtual drive (to C:\Program Files again or to the base directory you chose during the initial installation of the client on WINE).

Then run WINE with e. g. "wine C:\\Program Files\\Azkend\\Azkend.exe" and you should be able to play the game.
