  • Playing
    • Sound
    • Keyboard and mouse control
    • Saving and loading
  • The dungeon editor can be started from in-game

What does not

  • A number of interface items were missing from the installer and patcher (like the "I have read ..." text, the buttons and the progress bars. This might be a local (libpng related) problem, though.
  • The game crashes on start with the following message:

    err:module:import_dll Library X3DAudio1_7.dll (which is needed by L"C: \\GOG Games\\Legend of Grimrock\\grimrock.exe") not found

    This can be remedied by installing xact_jun2010 with winetricks.

    err:d3dcompiler:compile_shader HLSL shader parsing failed.

    This can be remedied by installing d3dcompiler_43 with winetricks.

Additional Comments

- I haven't played the game on windows, thus can't say if there are differences. The game seems very enjoyable on wine. - The game was installed from the file `setup_legend_of_grimrock_2.0.0.17.exe` and the patch file `patch_legend_of_grimrock_2.0.1.19.exe` was applied, both downloaded from GOG on 2013-04-11.
