Downloading via Origin, Installing From Ashes & Resurgence DLC, Starting game through Origin, some singleplayer, gameplay in fullscreen mode.
What does not
Gameplay in virtual desktop.
What was not tested
Gameplay on Nvidia card, starting through Reloaded crack, entire campaign, Multiplayer.
Origin may sometimes interfere with game startup. Use of Reloaded crack may change results here. Virtual desktop creates very choppy audio/video, game only works in fullscreen mode. Game may crash at the start of playing Bioware/EA logo. If so, the following patch might work (use it only with ME3 and at your own risk): diff --git a/dlls/wined3d/query.c b/dlls/wined3d/query.c index 8298058..ff55537 100644 ---a/dlls/wined3d/query.c +++b/dlls/wined3d/query.c @@ -75,7 +75,7 @@ static enum wined3d_event_query_result wined3d_event_query_test(const struct win break; case GL_TIMEOUT_EXPIRED: - ret = WINED3D_EVENT_QUERY_WAITING; + ret = WINED3D_EVENT_QUERY_OK; break; case GL_WAIT_FAILED: @@ -396,6 +396,7 @@ static HRESULT wined3d_event_query_ops_get_data(struct wined3d_query *query, break; case WINED3D_EVENT_QUERY_WAITING: + FIXME("Event query is waiting.\n"); *data = FALSE; break; Thanks to cluthz and thanoulas from Portingteam.com for the patch.

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!
