Additional Comments

I took no chance and installed everything recommanded in a fresh win32 wineprefix: winetricks dotnet35 xna31 directx9 xinput vcrun2008 steam I also disabled glsl and multisampling and set my correct graphic memory using winetricks What made the game not crash anymore in my case was to set shadow quality to medium. Everything else is at maxed including resolution at 3840x2160. Virtual desktops cause more problems than they solve Everything now seems to work flawlessly linux 4.11.6-3-ARCH nvidia-beta 381.22-1 compton v0.1_beta2.5 steam package version: 1496897923 xorg-server: 1.19.3-2

HowTo / Notes


Some components must be installed with winetricks in order to be able to launch Magicka.To proceed, run :
winetricks dotnet35

winetricks xna31

winetricks directx9

winetricks xinput

Sometimes, winetricks vcrun2008 is also needed.

For 64 bits Users

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
