Mostly everything tested thusfar, which includes: * Most of the base single player game * The following DLCs: AegisPack, Carberus Arc Launcher, Cerberus Weapon and Armor, Firepower Pack, Hammerhead, Kasumi, Normandy Crash Site, Zaeed. Overlord has been installed but has not been fully tested; it seems to be working since the initial journal entry is present.
What does not
* The installation program for all DLCs hangs after the installation is completed. The DLC will be installed successfully, but you have to kill the installation program's process. This isn't a flaw with the game itself, which installs perfectly fine, so I'm not sure what impact it should have on the AppDB rating.
What was not tested
* About the last 20% of the base game. * Overlord DLC content.
I'm seeing bug #23135. Additional research I've done has informed me that this isn't a wine bug, but a bug in the bink video module included with the game, and it affects people on Windows as well. It only seems to bother people with dual core machines; machines with more than 2 cores never report this problem. Because wine is perfectly replicating broken behavior that takes place on Windows, the application rating is still Platinum. A workaround for this exists: start the game with the -nomoviestartup command line parameter. This will turn off all movies in the game. A problem with this is that it becomes impossible to travel to the Citadel without crashing. This problem also happens on Windows, so the application rating is still Platinum.

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!
