HowTo / Notes

Required Workarounds

Using winetricks is not a requirement, but it is used in this guide, as it makes things more convenient-like (using the -q (--unattended) option will make the installation of 'dotnet', 'xna', and 'wmp' much less of a hassle).

  • Additional dll required which is not available via winetricks (at this time):
    • qedit (Important: After copying in the dll, it needs to be registered (wine regsvr32 qedit) after adding the override via winecfg.)


  • Installation can be skipped if one has a previous installation somewhere.  The files can be copied from another prefix for example (under steamapps/common).  Steam itself is not required at runtime.
  • Steam should install the game fine, and the .NET/XNA installations can be made to work if they don't work out-of-the-box.  Using winetricks will be more convenient, however.
