Additional Comments

For Problems with admins right, just go in wine configuration, add reg.exe and Origininstaller.exe (or something like that, not the origin.exe) and put general settings to windows 7, and for the other exe to add, put them on windows xp, it will install the game, it works for me! :D For Battlelog, it works without problems! ^^ Good luck!

HowTo / Notes

Fix mouse issues

Try FIX 1 first. If this does not help, then try FIX 2:

FIX 1: Go to wine settings (winetricks) and set "mouse warp override" to "disabled". In Battlefield 3 in-game settings, set "raw mouse input" to "On".

FIX 2: Go to Wine settings (winetricks) and set "mouse warp override" to default value ("Enabled'). In Battlefield 3 in-game settings, set "raw mouse input" to "Off".

Fix "BF3WebHelper.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close" error.

This error shows up during game launch when using 64bit wine prefix. You need to use 32bit wine prefix in order to fix it.

How to connect to multiplayer server
  1. Change your preferred browser's user agent to something Windows-like (e.g. Internet Explorer 10). For Chrome users, User-Agent Switcher for Chrome works just fine.
  2. Instead of clicking "Play" in origin, go to, login using Origin's (EA) credentials and connect to your favourite server. Game will start in minimized mode as expected.

I've spent almost half of the day attempting to launch battlefield 3 through wine. Unfortunatelly - without luck.

I've successfully managed to:
1. Install Battlefield browser plugins + firefox.
2. Origin in Windows 7 32bit mode (XP mode asks to upgrade).
3. Login and attempt to launch the online match

After some errors, I always ended up with a message saying "your game is corrupted, please repair through Origin installer", but actually it's something related to file check or some kind of a self "mechanism" which detects (if something not OK) - game is "corrupted".

Wine 1.9.9 - doesn't work. Test data is pending for this one (or for 1.8.9)
