The official release version. Beginning with versions 1.x.
After dll tweaks (see below), almost everything worked: Patching. Launching. Character creation. Game play. Fullscreen. Windowed. Multi-monitor support.
What does not
Changing the resolution causes cursor position issues which resolve after relaunching the game client.
What was not tested
Fresh installation. (I did a fresh install 6 months ago, but that was pre-release and on wine 1.5.X.) Many in-game effects & graphics were not tested.
Game worked on a fresh prefix with the following dll changes: Installed vcrun2010 via winetricks: WINEPREFIX="YOUR_PREFIX_HERE" winetricks vcrun2010 Installed the redistributed DirectX from "Path of Exile/Redist/dxsetup.exe". None of the winetricks d3dx9_XX versions I tried worked (36, 42, 43), despite 36 having worked in beta. WINEPREFIX="YOUR_PREFIX_HERE" winetricks dxsetup.exe Then I just launch the game via a shell script containing: cd "YOUR_PoE_DIRECTORY_HERE" WINEPREFIX="YOUR_PREFIX_HERE" wine Client.exe System Specs: Core 2 Duo E8400 Geforce 650TI (binary blob 304.48) 4GB RAM Game on ext4 Crucial C300 64GB SSD Low graphics settings. Average 40-50 fps during combat with dips to ~25 fps. Stuttering and memory leaks from earlier builds appear to be gone.
