HowTo / Notes

Pre- / Post- Installation Steps

Override the following dll 's before (or after) installing Limbo:

export WINEPREFIX="❚❚❚❚❚❚"
winetricks d3dx9_43 d3dcompiler_43

In the instance of a failure you would find Limbo might fail to launch successfully (backtrace will indicate a failure in d3dcompiler_43), e.g.:

Backtrace:
=>0 0x056396a9 in d3dcompiler_43 (+0x1e96a9) (0x0033e238)
1 0x055285e4 in d3dcompiler_43 (+0xd85e3) (0x0033e63c)
2 0x0552750e in d3dcompiler_43 (+0xd750d) (0x0033e668)
3 0x054b6e6f in d3dcompiler_43 (+0x66e6e) (0x0033f3a4)
4 0x100e6186 in d3dx9_43 (+0xe6185) (0x0033f650)
5 0x004862e3 in limbo (+0x862e2) (0x03058489)

Alternatively you might see a vertex error KW_VERTEX popup dialog from Wine.

Note: you only need to specify the WINEPREFIX env variable if you are not using the default location: WINEPREFIX="${HOME}/.wine"

More recent test indicates that the issue is still present in Wine release wine-1.9.18 (Vanilla).

Tweaks

"First Time" Setup

To stop the firstevery time (!!) setup of the MS DirectX redistributable, for the default SteamApps location, in a 32-bit Wineprefix:

rm -rf "${WINEPREFIX}/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/Limbo/DirectX_Redist"

... or for the default SteamApps location, in a 64-bit Wineprefix:
