Dragon Age II

Dragon Age II is the sequel to BioWare's Dragon Age series of role-playing video games and was released on March 8, 2011 in North America and March 11, 2011 in Europe. Unlike Dragon Age: Origins, the main character's race cannot be changed; however, the character's appearance, gender, class and first name are all fully customizable. Hawke, the main character, is a Lothering refugee who rises to power and becomes the Champion of the Free Marches. Dragon Age II is set in the same world as Dragon Age: Origins, but takes place in the Free Marches.

Additional Comments

Requires Core Fonts, Dx9, WinXP, and DotNet20. Audio works flawlessly with "Forced Stereo" option turned on in game, otherwise character's voices cannot be heard. Slight graphics corruption (random black pixels that appear and disappear), but otherwise smooth and high FPS. Was copied over from a Windows installation.

HOWTO
1. Install corefonts, fontfix, dotnet20, vcrun2005, vcrun2008, d3dx9 and winxp via winetricks.
( winvista/win7 have some sound issues in dialogs, I haven't any way to fix it ).
2. Download game via EA Download manager ( or just copy installed one from other place )
3. Download activation breaker from some dirty site ( sorry, but no way to activate game now )
4. Run wine $GAMEDIR/bin_ship/DragonAge2.exe
5. Try to kill this Ogre! :)
