Completing the game.
Logging into the cerberus network.
Completing every single DLCÂ
What does not
Automatic login to the cerberus network on game start doesn't work. You have to type your username and password almost every time you want to log in there.
The "Lair of the shadow broker" DLC has a car chase section that is buggy and displays black screen only. This issue happens quite often on Windows as well. The solution for me was to reinstall the DLC and lower/turn off all graphics option for that sequence (2 minutes in total) and then turn back everything up.
What was not tested
Once I launched the game and the audio didn't work. Restarting the game seemed to fix it, idk what went wrong..

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!
