What was not tested

Extreme effect characters, playing in large groups.

Additional Comments

Running the game in 1920x1200 at mostly 60fps, drops to 25-30 in higher intensity situations, on the following hardware:
Intel i3 4170 @ 3.7GHz
8GB Ram
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750Ti

To combat the occasional stutters in the game, I run with the -gc 100 flag, like so:
wine PathOfExile.exe -gc 100

This seems to improve performance, at the cost of the program eventually crashing when it runs out of memory at the 32bit allocation limit.
How long this takes depends on how many different zones you enter, and how many different spell effects you encounter. At lower levels and solo you might get 3-5 hours, at higher levels and in groups, closer to 1-2 hours.

Works fine, although it takes a bit long to allocate space.

The important settings are:

Not turning these off/down will severely tank your fps and/or make the game unplayable.

HowTo / Notes

Required fixes (as of 2014-08-07)
Set fullscreen
Edit the production_Config.ini file located in ${Documents}/My Games/Path of Exile/. Change fullscreen to true. This prevents the "Failed Resetting Direct3D device objects" crash.

Override openal32.dll:
In winecfg, set the openal32 library to native,builtin or native. This prevents errors involving sound files at launch.
Unconfirmed: An alternative is to launch Path of Exile with sound off with the -nosound flag. 
Recommended fixes (as of 2014-08-07)
winetricks riched20.dll // for launcher
winetricks usp10.dll    // fix unicode missing symbols

No effect sound or voice sound, dialogue closes
by CheatCat on Tuesday March 21st 2017, 3:23
I got a problem with path of exile. I cannot hear any sound effects or ambient sound or dialogue voice. When selecting things to talk about on an NPC the text begin to scroll and the the text box closes.

Are there any way to fix this?
2017-2-28 Failure To Launch
by Wee Mad Hamish on Tuesday February 28th 2017, 23:00
For anyone who's getting failure very early in the launcher starting, with a message about something unimplemented in msls31.dll, shutting off the riched20 override in winecfg seems to have fixed it for me. So far text is displaying properly, and things seem to be working about as properly as they ever did on my box.
I'm angry
by Cory on Sunday January 29th 2017, 17:51
Tried everything except the:
winetricks psm=3 vsm=3 gsm=3 videomemorysize=xxx glsl=disabled fontsmooth=disable multisampling=disabled

I get lag spikes across the board.
World of Warcraft plays better than this.
I'm using wine2.0
Somebody feel sad for me.
keyboard focus issue
by wassy on Saturday September 24th 2016, 15:18
For some reason wine does not get keyboard focus when in fullscreen on certain keys. for example the escape and tab keys revert to the windows manager. but alt and shift keys still appear to work in the game.
This works a lot better than adverised here
by Mikko Rantanen on Tuesday September 6th 2016, 15:32
This POE forum thread is a good source:

The game works with latest wine (winetricks glsl disabled) very well. I had same problems with older versions that required nosound etc, but that's not needed.
Atlas of the World install problems
by Andree Patee on Monday September 5th 2016, 16:52
I had to do a format and clean install of ubuntu and I cant get the install of Path of Exile working anymore.

The new .exe does not work, I can select a location and accept the agreement but it crashes when it starts installing.
The .msi installed about 99% but is currently failing on something related to PathOfExile.tmp. It downloads 15 mb and then when it's done downloading it crashes.

I dont know if it's my wine or my ubuntu or something else.
Performance improvements // Battle the massive FPS drop
by Armin Altorffer on Saturday July 2nd 2016, 19:41
Path of Exile suffers from massive FPS drops as of 2.3.x; after plenty of attempts to remedy the situation I was almost left to conclude it was somehow related to the network code. Since the problem is mostly random in nature and can be (randomly) fixed by warping out of and into the affected area. So, not graphics related; it would be more consistent.

In the end though, I decided to try something else -- I arrived at the alternate explanation of PoE simply choking on asset loading. So, I decided to simply make PoE's life easier by eliminating an entire class of assets -- sound.

PoE has a nosound commandline switch. And, for some reason or another, the combination of its nosound commandline option and its gc 1 (more aggressive garbage collection) resolved the massive FPS drops for me. The game is extremely playable with the following:

winetricks psm=3 vsm=3 gsm=3 videomemorysize= glsl=disabled fontsmooth=disable multisampling=disabled

and starting PoE with

wine "" -ns -gc 1 >/dev/null 2>&1 &

No more random slideshow-esque framerates at random intervals; just a really consistent, smooth experience.

PS: This is on a default Wine Prefix. So no additional packages via Winetricks. No vcrun2010, usp10, riched20 or whatever. Also, this is on Gallium enabled Wine 1.9.13 (Google for winedri3).
Game performance deteriorates gradually
by Bruno Javier Blasco Smaranda on Saturday July 2nd 2016, 6:34
After a bit of research I realized this is caused because the game leaks video memory. The solution is to close the game and then open it again, but this can be slow and there are some moments in which you can't quit it.

So another solution is to enter text mode by swapping into a tty (for instance tty6 by pressing CTRL-ALT-F6) and then re-entering graphical mode (ALT-F7 or CTRL-ALT-F7). This causes the video card to soft-reset and clear the resources the game should be clearing instead. This entire process should take a pair of seconds; I do it while the game loads a new area. You might want to log in into the tty so the game can run while you're in there, otherwise all your processes will be paused.

Here's the output of nvidia-smi after being ingame for a while, in which you can see the memory usage being half a gig:

After doing the tty trick, it goes down to normal.

Ver 2.3.1 - if lag try to disable preload
by Sun on Saturday June 25th 2016, 3:31
If your poe is lag on ver 2.3, try add --nopreload argument;

I use playonlinux so I add --nopreload in Gereral -> Arguments and it work very well.
Patch 2.3.0b - Frequent Crashing
by Christopher Pye on Saturday June 4th 2016, 16:51
After the 2.3.0b patch, the game preformed smoothly once again, so long as I set the wine version to WinXP. However, the game crashes with infuriating regularity. This backtrace was from when I simply standing in town, moving items about in my inventory. I've recently removed the OpenAL32 override (as they recently revamped the game's sound system). I'm about to try playing with no sound to see if that works.

Insane stuttering
by Jesper Svensson on Saturday June 4th 2016, 16:03
Since the newest update(s) the stuttering in PoE has made the game almost unplayable. Does anyone know some kind of solution?

Ubuntu 16.04

GLSL - Disabled
Crash (possibly Nvidia proprietary drivers) in certain areas
by Tom on Friday January 29th 2016, 5:40
I keep having my whole system go down (screens blank and then glow bright colors), most frequently in certain areas of act 2 (Southern Forest, Riverways, Wetlands, Western Forest). Mostly posting here to see if anyone else has this issue.

Some strange details of crashes I've had lately w.r.t. PoE on wine:

Graphics go tits up -- screens blank and redraw as a solid color, color seems arbitrary.

Filesystems go read-only -- dmesg shows a libsata error queueing an operation (have seen read and write both, with fqdma (hope I put that right) enabled and disabled. This persists regardless of wine version and even if PoE and its wineprefix are on a ramdisk (so libsata shouldn't bitch) which leads me to believe it's related to the graphics issue and I *think* it might be nvidia drivers going tits up and shitting on the sata bus somehow.

If nobody else has similar issues, perhaps it's just something wonky with my setup and I can accept that, just posting here for posterity in case someone else has such issues (or in case they point to some egregious error somewhere along the codepaths).

Getting the installer to work
by John on Saturday August 8th 2015, 18:33
So I just installed wine (it looks to be version 1.6.2 on my imac mid 2011 running 10.10.2) and i cd to the desktop where the POE installer folder is. I then try to run "wine icon.clienticon.exe" since that is the only .exe file that I see in the installer folder but I keep getting the error from wine that says "Bad EXE format for ...".
Am I not selecting the right file to launch the installer or is there something else that I need to do? Thanks for the help!

Chaotic gamma changes, wine 1.7.19
by Greg Cohen on Tuesday September 16th 2014, 17:32
I'm not that good with words, so i figured it would be easier to show.

Since patch 1.2 of the POE i had some serious performance issues with this game, so i built wine 1.7.19 from the sources, as was recommended,
and applied the patch 'wgl_surface.patch'

Performance is great, game runs stable, but i still can't figure the issue of chaotic gamma (or maybe full screen light) changes.

As i told you before, i don't really know how to describe the situation, so i decided to upload a short 'demo'

1.2.2 update fps drop
by gary on Thursday September 11th 2014, 20:51
New patch was released and with it anytime I encounter a enemy or cast a spell fps drops from 60fps to 5fps. I am using Ubuntu Gnome 14.04 with wine version 1.6-rc4. Anyone else experiencing this?
i'm trying to install wine compholio x86_64
by Joël on Tuesday August 19th 2014, 7:21
It's a precompiled package from Sebastian Lackner in this bug report :
But it's for Archlinux and i'm using OpenSuse.
So if anyone knows of an easy way to do this, i'd love some help.

(all this in the hope of stopping the game from blinking so much that i can't play it)
Problem updating to 1.1.3
by Eelco Bosselaar on Thursday May 1st 2014, 11:50
Having problems updating to 1.1.3. Patcher screen stays stuck on 97.5% downloaded and will eventually throw a timeout error about not being able to download a certain sound file.

Trying to workaround this by having steam download the game update and then copying it to my standalone version for PoE.

Already ran PackCheck.exe and it said it fixed my ggpk but the error remains.

I will update when I find out more.
Black screen

Regarding the black screen issue, changing in regedit (check ) OffscreenRenderingMode to 'backbuffer' solves the problem.
Crash with Debian Jessie and latest fglrx-driver
by Anb on Tuesday March 18th 2014, 10:41
Since the last update of debian jessie and fglrx-driver (14.2~beta1.3), path of exile crash at startup.

For now, the only way to have it work is to not upgrade your debian.

The upgrade will update xorg-server to a newer major version which is not compatible with previous fglrx-drivers, so downgrade is very difficult.

I'm trying to update to latest ati drivers manually (14.3) to check.
it no longer works in wine 1.7.14 or
by Joël on Saturday March 8th 2014, 12:00
i upgraded wine to version 1.7.14 and the path of exile client won't work anymore.
It seems the updater still works fine, but as soon as the actual client starts, it crashes the X server.
So i bet something was changed from version 1.7.13 :(

Any help would be appreciated (also i don't know how to create bug reports).
Wrong install path
by Dan (Strit) Johansen on Friday February 14th 2014, 16:30
I only have one problem with my PoE install. It doesn't install the files in the folder I specify. It installs them directly into my Home directory, without a subdirectory.

How to fix that?

PS: I use a seperate prefix for it.

I have linux Mint 16 x64 and I have installed PoE from PlayOnLinux.
I have got "error unable to create texture d3derr ... ".

I have read some threads about this problem but I can't find a solution.
I have installed libosmesa6 but no luck.
I also tried to enable GLSL=enable from playonlinux menu but still no luck.

I have mesa 10.2 development version drivers that I have installed from ppa: xorg-edgers/ppa/ubuntu/ and my video card is ATI MSI R6870.

here is my debug log from game:

I hope you can help me.

Installation over Steam
by pfftzo on Monday January 27th 2014, 14:54
I just installed it via Steam and when I started it, it said "Installing VCRedist step 1/2" and then finished and nothing happened, ie the game didn't start, the window just terminated and I was back in plain steam. :(

Gentoo users, help?
by Pekka Paalanen on Friday December 13th 2013, 14:34
I'm hitting the "Cannot create texture." D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE error too, and no matter what I tried, it won't go away. 32-bit mesa, osmesa and whatnot. This is not the first game, where other people (even on Gentoo) get it running, but I cannot.

Could a Gentoo user who got PoE running, put the output of the following commands available somewhere?
$ emerge --info
$ emerge -evp wine
$ winetricks list-installed

Note, that the output is probably too long to be pasted as a comment here.

Also the *.reg files from your $WINEPREFIX would be nice to see.

Chat window affects performance
by Silviu C. on Monday December 9th 2013, 15:33
I've found that disabling both trade chat and general chat will improve the performance of this game significantly. Easy to observe by pressing F1 while in game. FPS shot from 30-ish to over 100 on my GTX 660.

Can anyone else confirm this?
Strange Crash
by Mojo Troll on Monday November 11th 2013, 10:20
I just installed this using a pc version of steam and everything seemed to be running fine with it until a strange crash occurred where even launching my wine command through terminal (showed nothing only showed launch after it loaded) it just locks up and a transparent box appears on my screen titled Path of Exile and this happens every so often playing it so i'm thinking its a memory allocation crash. Anyone else have this?
Failed Resetting Direct3D device objects
by Drake on Wednesday October 23rd 2013, 23:54
When I try to launch I get the error "Failed resetting Direct3D device objects."

Anyone know what might cause this? Followed all of the steps listed.

The only thing worth mentioning is that I have almost every single version of DirectX installed because this is my Steam wrapper (lots of games with different requirements). Could this be causing the issues?

I'm on OS X 10.8.5
by tsimbaloff yuri on Sunday October 20th 2013, 16:40
Hi All!
I'm using gentoo64, and I saw error message after logging and loading the first location. I have seen in this site, that lib32osmesa is required to play PoE. I compile mesa with ABI_X86="64 32" and USE="osmesa", but game always crashed...

Can anybody help me with gentoo64 and PoE?
how to fix msvcp and msvcr dll errors
by Joël on Wednesday July 17th 2013, 14:50
Today i couldn't run the game because of errors with these 'dll's.
It seems this game uses some 2010 year version of those MS files so you'll want the files with number 100 in filename.

And there's probably a winetricks command to make all this automagically but i didn't find which one it is.

So i downloaded msvcr100.dll and msvcp100.dll, i unzipped it in the game directory.
Then i added them as native in the library tab of winecfg (for Client.exe which i first added in the applications tab).

So far the game seems to be happy with only these 2 files.

How exactly do you "override" openal32.dll in winecfg? I cannot find it in my library list in winecfg? Do I have to install it somehow separately?
by Ferg on Thursday April 18th 2013, 0:44
To fix problem with fonts (like that just move game to a new wine prefix (installer breaks something during installation)

I couldn't get this working due to the allocating disk space bug, until I downloaded the new wine version entitled: 1.5.28-pathofexile. Now it works perfectly :)
Allocating Space slow easy fix
by zyvy on Monday April 8th 2013, 16:50
by marcel on Tuesday March 12th 2013, 3:47
with ATI HD 4xxx game is unplayable with high FPS drops when using new skills. It's like they are loading when they are only being used. Because after you use them the FPS drops stop, and when something new is there it starts to lag again.

Fps drops
by alex on Wednesday January 30th 2013, 11:42
There is a common problem causing huge fps drops (or even complete freezes for seconds) every time certain effects are loaded, especially when new boss monsters appear.

It has been reported by multiple users that this issue can very easily be fixed for nvidia cards by just disabling GLSL shaders. On Ati cards however this seems to cause major graphics glitches or crashes.

Not sure what's happened now but the game is really loving this tiny resolution. Not sure how to best describe it so here is a pic:

audio causing freeze
by Netsrotti on Wednesday May 9th 2012, 19:34
To solve the audio freeze when using active skills I added openal32 native under winecfg libraries tab.
