What works

Everything works - initially.  Installed via the tl2.beta.setup.exe downloader.  The same black window problem existed for me.  I sort of just switched to another workspace and switched back to my workspace with the downloader and it disappeared.  Playing for 5 - 10 minutes works beautifully for me with great FPS (with shadows disabled and everything on low settings - I have low end hardware).

What does not

Minimizing the initial download/install/update interface crashed it for me.

Playing for longer than a short period of time will cause the game to be very laggy - beyond playability.  This may be due to my hardware overheating, but I have a sense of doubt.  There are certain wine games that exhibit this behaviour (slow and laggy beyond playability after a short amount of game play which is initially great).
Maintainer's note: In this particular case, it may be a Torchlight 2 Beta issue, not a Wine issue. I've seen similar reports from (presumably) Windows users on the TL2 Beta Discussion forum.


What was not tested

Single player due to it not being officially released.

Additional Comments

Running off of a Dell Latitude D630 : Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 @ 2.50 GHz 3 GB 667 MHz RAM Nvidia NVS 135M 128/256 MB RAM I would really love to get this working reliably. It may be due to overheating issues that my game slows down after 5 - 10 minutes but I doubt it. When checking temperatures, my CPU cores are at approximately 60-70 degrees celsius and my card is at ~75 degrees celsius, and I am able to play TF2 for a longer period of time. This game was installed to a clean ~/.torchlight2 prefix with nothing fiddled with essentially.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO See the launcher app
The launcher app may be covered by a black box. This can be moved. Use your move shortcut (most common defaults are Alt-click&drag or Meta-click&drag) to move the black box and see the launcher.
WARNING: Shutdown problems

It appears the game doesn't always shut down properly. For the all versions, this will waste RAM (and possibly CPU time). For the Steam version, this will also prevent cloud syncs, and you will not be able to re-launch Torchlight 2 until the old process is gone.

Use killall Torchlight2.exe2 to force-kill it. In my experience, this has no negative effects (if you do it after trying to shut down the game properly first).
