Works great, although there have been many framerate drops during play, but that might be due to my system specs. With one fix (other fixes might be needed as I have done other things for other games that I don't know matter), this game will work: You need the i386 & amd64 variants of this package - package: libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0 (0~git20131104-1.1). Then you need to disable: nvcuda.dll , dxgi.dll ; in the libraries tab of the winecfg utility for the Mass Effect 3 WINEPREFIX. Basically PhysX and DirectX 11 support. System Specs: Intel Core i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz * 4 Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ivybridge Mobile Ubuntu 17.04

If you have experienced performance degradation please deactivate dynamic shadows and antialiasing from game graphic menu. Also set proprietary driver image settings to Maximum Performance. This helps for weak graphic cards like NVIDIA Geforce 120 GT.
Please note - If your mouse/keyboard isn't working then it's most likely a rawinput issue, please upgrade your wine to at least version 1.6 since wine has had rawinput built into it for about 12 minor releases now.
If you have mouse and in-game lags, set dinput to native in winecfg - Libraries tab
In some cases sound disappeared, it can be fixed by setting dsound to native as above.
If you have poor performance in multiplayer, set winhttp to native as above.
Do not start game directly from Origin Client! It crashed anytime if you do it.
1. Firstly run Origin, login into it
2. Then run Mass Effect 3 from shortcut on the desktop (or executable file)
3. Start Multiplayer and Enjoy!
