Mass Effect 2 retail version, patched to 1.0.2, with DLCs. The game was installed on WinXP, and then sucessfully just started under Ubuntu 10.10, with wine 3.1.12 from PPA. I needed to start MassEffect2Config.exe first, to set-up registry entries, and after that the game ran flawlessly for a few minutes (~10) that I tested (I loaded some of my old save positions), on moderate settings. The game was ran in virtual desktop. I had problems with poor performance on my ATI 4870 (with official ATI drivers from Ubuntu's repository), but the newest ATI drivers from X-swat PPA solved the problem.
What does not
Nothing found so far.
What was not tested
Installation of the game.
Running game in fullscreen, without virtual desktop.

DLC for Mass Effect 2 seems to work okay. You need an EA account & Bioware account. You have to link your bioware account to your EA master account.
When done, you can login to http://social.bioware.com/user_entitlements.phpÂ and download theÂ content manually.
I have tested the Inferno Armor, Blood Dragon Armor,Â Zaeed - The Price of Revenge (Cerberus Network), Normandy Crash Site (Cerberus Network).
Launch the installer in the wineprefix you have Mass Effect 2 installed, the installer will fail (for me) at cleaning up the install. It is safe to kill the install process.
Once you have started Mass Effect 2, login to the Cerberus Network with your EA account and the DLC will be authorised (you may get a warning the first time)
Please purge your previously wine installation before using that HowTo!
