Additional Comments

By default the game will crash under Wine, this is due to the DRM included by the Russian game developer. Thanks to a DRM free patch by those at RWS, you can play this game flawlessly under Wine! To do so: 1) Install the Visual C++ 2010 libraries (vcrun2010 under Winetricks). 2) Browse for your Postal III folder, "Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/common/Postal III/", and delete the following files: p3.exe bin/gameui.dll bin/launcher.dll p3/bin/client.dll p3/bin/server.dll 3) Download and install this DRM Fix to the Postal III folder: https://dl.dropbox.com/s/mkiaonk11z1utfc/p3_nodrm.zip 4) Run via Steam (or by itself) and enjoy! IF YOU DON'T HEAR ANY AUDIO DURING MOVIES: Check if you have any dsound or dmusic libraries installed via Winetricks. If so, remove them from your Winecfg setup and you should be able to hear cutscenes fine. Thanks to the Running With Scissors forum for the DRM fix [1] and thanks to my friend for posting on how to get Postal III running under Wine (and his additional help) [2].

Getting the game working under Wine.
By default the game will crash under Wine, this is due to the DRM included by the Russian game developer. Thanks to a DRM free patch by those at RWS, you can play this game flawlessly under Wine! To do so:

1) Install the Visual C++ 2010 libraries (vcrun2010 under Winetricks).

2) Browse for your Postal III folder, "Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/common/Postal III/", and delete the following files:

p3.exe
bin/gameui.dll
bin/launcher.dll
p3/bin/client.dll
p3/bin/server.dll

3) Download and install this DRM Fix to the Postal III folder: https://dl.dropbox.com/s/mkiaonk11z1utfc/p3_nodrm.zip

4) Run via Steam (or by itself) and enjoy!

IF YOU DON'T HEAR ANY AUDIO DURING MOVIES: Check if you have any dsound or dmusic libraries installed via Winetricks. If so, remove them from your Winecfg setup and you should be able to hear cutscenes fine.
