HOW TO INSTALL: (optional) If you are using 64-bit OS make 32-bit wineprefix. Example: WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=$HOME/prefixes/rift winecfg 1.From winetricks install vcrun2008. Example: WINEPREFIX=$HOME/prefixes/rift winetricks vcrun2008 2.Manually install DirectX Jun_2010. You can download it from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109 2.1.Extract it somewhere (you can use default wine prefix to do so). So to speak you must run the downloaded .exe 2.2.Navigate from terminal to the place where you extracted the DirectX install. Example: cd $HOME/Downloads/DX 2.3.Run the install through your rift prefix. Example WINEPREFIX=$HOME/prefixes/rift wine DXSETUP.exe 3.Change the following prefix settings like so: AlwaysOffscreen - enabled DirectDrawRenderer - opengl Multisampling - disabled OffscreenRenderingMode - fbo UseGLSL - enabled VertexShaderMode - hardware To open winetricks gui for rift prefix you must write for example: WINEPREFIX=$HOME/prefixes/rift winetricks --gui and navigate: Select the default wineprefix > Change settings 4.Install the game. The new live installer still works but it needs to complete the full download til you can run the game. 5.Navigate to rift.cfg and change LegacyRenderer to True: rift.cfg is in for example: /HOME/prefix/rift/drive_c/users/*your username*/Application Data/RIFT/rift.cfg

Latest Wine upgrade made atleast my Rift constantly crashing(30 min - 1 hour after playing), but there is a trick to reduce this crashing:
It seems to degrade performance a bit, but in some places it somehow actually increases it. I guess itâ€™s threading policy of Rift that causes it. The impact is barely noticeable by me, tell me if you have other opinions.
This setting also removes rendering artifacts, where all kind of funny white stripes and other ugly particles and planes are shown where they shouldnâ€™t be, to make it ~pixel perfect to what it should be.
