What does not
DotNetFX 3.5 needs to be installed. This is do able using winetricks-alpha from http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks-alpha sh winetricks-alpha dotnet35 Dotnetfx 2.0 and 3.0 installed fine but the 3.5 install failed after going most of the way through the install process but afterwards the game worked ok anyway. Steam will install XNA Game Redistribute 3.1 and DirectX. Everytime I start the game Steam trys to install DotNet3.5 but it will still load the game (you might have to hit cancel the first time, then the 2nd you will get an error saying the installer is already running, then steam will launch the game). If you get install errors on any of the packages other than 3.5, try a clean Wine install or an alternative WINEPREFIX setting (all the 2.0, 3.0 and XNA3.1 installers crashed first time I tried on my normal install that had other settings). Some fairly minor graphical glitches, the particle effects seem to mix up a bit (you get fire in water/frost spells, which can make characters look like they are on fire when they are really just wet). There is a polygon near the start that stretch locks onto the character from the middle of the map and tracks him. This only happened in that area so far. FPS seems a little low.

Some components must be installed with winetricks in order to be able to launch Magicka.To proceed, run :
Sometimes, winetricks vcrun2008 is also needed.
In order to install the required components for Magicka, you will have to create a 32 bits wineprefix and install everything there (Magicka included).
To create your 32 bits prefix : WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/path/to/wineprefix winecfg
To start winetricks in that prefix : WINEPREFIX=/path/to/wineprefix winetricks
To run Magicka from this prefix : WINEPREFIX=/path/to/wineprefix wine /path/to/Magicka/Magicka.exe
Some problems can sometimes be solved by going in winecfg, in the graphic tab and activating these two options :
- Emulate a Virtual Desktop
- Automatically capture the mouse
If your game crash with error related to "system memory" or "out of memory" (bug 29324), you can try this workaround :
- in the graphic menu in the game, set all details to "low" and effects to "off" (you don't need to change the game resolution)
- with winetricks or regedit, set your graphic card memory amount, disable GLSL and multisampling
Error message: File not found: LanguageFont.xnb (triggered when using the settings menu)
Solution: Create a symlink to debug.xnb in the same folder
