What works

game runs fine

(base-game, disharmony-dlc) 

What does not

audio may jitter a bit, steam-screenshots don't work (F12 button), alt-tab too.

The print-button (@keyboard, yet another method to take a screensh.)  may quit fullscreen to windowed mode and freeze the game (since it's turn-based with autosaves not that big a deal).

(1.7.55-staging: fullscreen may not work, 1.8.rc3-staging: fullscreen works fine (only uses primary monitor of multimonitor-setup, desktop remains on 2nd monitor) )


What was not tested

full campaign playthrough

Additional Comments

required: .Net 4.5 (dotnetfx4.5) CSMT: winecfg, staging, enable CSMT (this means you have to use a version with this option, e.g. "1.8.rc3-staging") if that doesn't suffice, also install vcrun2008, vcrun2012 and mfc42. If you get any errors while installing the modules via winetricks try a completely new wineprefix (helped in my case). You also may try to set winecfg to Win7, as suggested by the other reviewers. The wineprefix has to be 32bit (x86), even if your OS is 64bit!

No dice :-(

It was working in Ubuntu 17.10. I updated to Ubuntu 18.04 and it stopped working (black screen). Installed all gst plugins i386 (in that case I guess the package is gstreamer1.0-libav:i386) but it did not run. Tried with -novideo launch option, still black screen with game cursor. Tried disabling winegstreamer.dll through wineconf, no change (so I enabled it again, because I guess this is an old solution - never had to use it in Ubuntu 17.10).

Anyone knows how to fix that?

the fix was as simple as using "launch options" on steam and setting it to TZ= %command% (notice: one space between the = and the %command% word). I live in Brazil and I use BRT and wine could not understand the timezone. That's why it works with other people flawlessly but not with me.
[FIX] Blank screen on startup

If you have a "blank screen on startup" issue, make sure that your system sports a 32-bit gst-libav (or gst-ffmpeg) plugin, as that is needed for wmv decoding. I guess this is mandatory because the main menu has a wmv in the background...
Game crashes at start

Fedora 23 & 24. Fresh install from Steam. Games crashes at launch every time. Figured out I needed to disable winegstreamer.dll.

Yep, I actually just had to do this on Arch as well. Thanks for the tip!
