Additional Comments

I tested the demo without Steam and the latest Dungeon Defenders with Steam and it works, but you have to do a few work arounds. At this point Gentoo wants me to use Wine-1.2, so I added: app-emulation/wine ~amd64 to /etc/portage/package.keywords. Next I installed wine: emerge -av wine [ebuild R ~] app-emulation/wine-1.5.5 USE="X alsa cups gecko gnutls gphoto2 jpeg mp3 ncurses nls openal opengl oss perl png samba scanner ssl threads truetype v4l win32 win64 xcomposite xinerama xml -capi -custom-cflags -fontconfig -gsm (-gstreamer) -hardened -lcms -ldap -odbc -opencl (-selinux) -test -udisks" 0 kB Then I configured a 32bit prefix specifically for Dungeon Defenders while simultaneously selecting Wine to run in 32bit mode: WINEPREFIX="/home/hazuez/.wine-dungeondef" WINEARCH="win32" winecfg All I did there was add my name to the registration, and I set my version of Windows to Windows2000 (the .NET installation will change this to XP later on, and that is what we want). Next I installed winetricks from here: mkdir ~/bin cd ~/bin wget chmod +x winetricks Then I installed .NET3.5 according to the instructions on: WINEPREFIX="/home/hazuez/.wine-dungeondef" WINEARCH="win32" ~/bin/winetricks dotnet35­ Note that I did not do the silent installation because sometimes it hangs and this will let me hit Ctrl-C to stop the process, including if it hangs when Wine simulates a reboot. Next, I upgraded this to .NET 3.5SP1. First, I did the .NET2.0 sp2 prerequisite: WINEPREFIX="/home/hazuez/.wine-dungeondef" WINEARCH="win32" ~/bin/winetricks dotnet20sp2 Then I downloaded .NET 3.5SP1 from here: mv dotnetfx35.exe cd .wine-dungeondef/drive_c WINEPREFIX="/home/hazuez/.wine-dungeondef" WINEARCH="win32" wine ./dotnetfx35.exe Once this installed, I also added the windows codecs and a paticular version of DirectX: WINEPREFIX="/home/hazuez/.wine-dungeondef" WINEARCH="win32" ~/bin/winetricks windowscodecs xact_jun2010 Also, during the installation of .NET and components, I did not change the document registration (XPS I think). Next I added the following registry key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\TrendyEntertainment\DungeonDefenders] "InstalledUE3Redist"=dword:00000001 Next, I downloaded the Steam client from Valve (and I did not use winetricks to do this). I obtained the client from here: mv SteamInstall.msi ~/.wine-dungeondef/drive_c cd ~/wine-dungeondef/drive_c WINEPREFIX="/home/hazuez/.wine-dungeondef" WINEARCH="win32" wine msiexec /i SteamInstall.msi This installs Steam, and once Steam is installed, I used the Steam Client Game library to install the Dungeon Defenders since I was entitled to it. I tested it multiplayer and it works correctly. The game does not see my full screen resolution however.
