Additional Comments

Everything ran fine out of the box but if you enable HDR graphics mode then you get a black screen on loading a game, the menu still works so you can escape just fine. Bloom mode works just fine so make sure you enable that instead of HDR. Previous test data mentioned the need to disable steam overlay for oblivion, I have no problem with this. 32bit prefix, not a clean prefix but I encountered no problems. Here is the list of installed settings for my winetricks: d3dx10 d3dx9 d3dx9_26 d3dx9_28 d3dx9_31 d3dx9_35 d3dx9_36 d3dx9_39 d3dx9_42 d3dx9_43 directx9 dotnet20 mdx secur32 steam vcrun2005 xact xact_jun2010 xinput ====== I used the high preset for graphics detail and turned all of the item/tree/detail...etc fade to it's highest distance. Used 1440x900 resolution, game runs very smooth Tested on Macbook Pro 13" (early 2015) CPU: Core i5 2.9 GHz RAM: 8GB RAM GPU: Intel Iris Graphics 6100 OSX: 10.11.5

HowTo / Notes

How to prevent crash when entering the main menu on Ubuntu

This was necessary for me to run Oblivion on Ubuntu 18.04. You may not have to do this in your distro. Solus for example did not require this,


The game has an issue with winegstreamer, and will crash if it is
enabled. 

  1. Open up terminal and run $ winecfg (note, do not put the $ in terminal, as it's already there)
  2. Click 'Add application' and find the Oblivion.exe from the steam\steamapps\common\oblivion folder
  3. Then navigate to 'Libraries'
  4. In the dropdown menu, begin typing "winegstream.." and winegstreamer should appear
  5. Click 'Add'
  6. Then click 'Edit' from the right hand side and click 'disable'
  7. Then click Apply and exit
Install DirectX if your distro doesn't enable it by default when installing from their Repo

When playing this game on Ubuntu, I had to install DirectX manually. This may not be necessary depending on your distro, but I needed it for Ubuntu 18.04 when installing 3.0 stable from the software center.

  1. If you haven't done so already, install winetricks from the Ubuntu software center
  2. Select the default wineprefix
  3. Install a Windows component or DLL
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the list and install XACT

gstreamer

Instead of disabling winegstreamer, I suggest installing gstreamer including gst-plugins. Otherwise the game stutters when the background music track changes, e.g. at the beginning and end of fights.
