Installing this game on my 9400m 2.53 ghz core 2 duo was a very simple task. The game runs out of the box, utilizing engine 1.7.35, but not without certain issues. Fullscreen automatically captures the mouse, but not the keyboard. The way around this was to move the terminal and steam icon from the far left corner to the middle of the monitor. Initiate the game through steam and wait for the, running icon, to appear. Before the title screen initiates, a small black box should quickly appear in the far left corner, before fullscreen takes over. If you were to quickly tap this small black box with your mouse icon, than your computer will also capture the keyboard as well. I had this same issue with GTA IV and if it weren't for blind luck, I probably would have never figured it out.
game window spawns partially off-screen
by Shevek on Tuesday September 9th 2014, 0:32
I just installed Dishonored using Steam via PlayOnLinux. I'm having a problem where the game window spawns halfway off the left side of the monitor. This happens whether the game is set to fullscreen or windowed. I can move the game window onto the monitor, but even though it looks correct, my cursor is still trapped in the old position, so I can't click things on the right half of the monitor.
I've tried using winecfg to emulate virtual desktop, but the virtual desktop crashes and the game starts without a virtual desktop.
I suspect that this is not a problem specific to Dishonored, but is some sort of interaction between the game, wine, and the window manager. I use Kubuntu 14.04.

Everything runs fine, except for this really annoying problem :
randomly and seemingly quite frequently, one of the directional keys gets stuck in it's down state.
so for example I'll be performing some rather ninja stealthy sneaking ambulations and it comes to a point where I must stop exactly right... now. But no, the move forwards key is still being pressed according to the game. So right on out into the open does I sneak... in front of a guard.
I'm finding that to "unstick" the key, I have to spam attack with the sword while spamming all the directional keys....
Fixing crash at first launch
by Snowdrake on Saturday December 29th 2012, 6:21
Hi, the first time I tried to launch the game, it crashes.
The only way I found to fix this was to add "-windowed" in the steam launch option.
In order to launch the game windowed, and then set my proper screen resolution.
After that, I am now able to launch the game fullscreen without problem anymore.

Hey, I have just installed this game and it is running fine except for the sound : it is crackling. I run a few games on Steam and I do not have this problem : it seems to be Dishonored specific. I use ALSA and wine 1.5.20.
Game runs fine but crashes after a few minutes
by John on Thursday December 20th 2012, 23:27
I'm running this on OpenSuSE 12.2, nvidia 580 with the 310.19 driver, Intel 2600k, and 16GB of RAM.
The game runs fine, however after about 3-5 minutes of play, I will randomly get a "Detected negative delta time - on AMD systems please install files/aoaforums/I3199-setup.zip.html" Followed by "Address = 0x7b83b601 (filename not found) [in C:\windows\system32\KERNEL32.dll].....more similar messages"
Once I click OK on that popup, I get this:

I suppose I should install debugging symbols, but sheesh. I just got done playing Assassin's Creed without any issues, and have played many other wine games.
I originally installed without WINEARCH=win32 and had this issue. I've since deleted the directory I install to (I always install to a fresh WINEPREFIX for every game, just in case something goes wrong) and reinstalled with WINEARCH=win32 to no effect. I still crash every 3-5 minutes. :-(
Freeze on startup
by Milan Troller on Thursday October 11th 2012, 14:39
Hello, I am trying to launch an off-steam version of game.
When I launch it, it creates a window but never does anything past that - simply freezes. I don't want to open a bug as it might be just some sillies on my end - I have fresh .wine with vcrun2008 installed, tho, and my wine is 1.5.13 - somebody reported getting it to run in 1.5.12.
Dual monitor and mouse capture
by Dr Wahl on Thursday October 11th 2012, 10:20
I'm running a dual monitor setup with wine/dishonored running in virtual desktop mode. When playing "full screen" (full screen on 1 of the 2 monitors), the mouse does not get captured by the game and will either hit the screen edge on one side, or leave the game and proceed to the 2nd screen on the other.
One solution to work around this is to deselect "Fullscreen" from the video settings in-game. This puts dishonored into windowed mode within the wine virtual desktop. This causes the mouse to be captured by the game while playing, but if you pause the game (by hitting Esc) the mouse is freed and can move to the second monitor.
A second solution is to use winecfg to tell wine to capture the mouse. This allows the game to be played with the in-game "fullscreen" setting enabled and have the mouse be captured, however the mouse will not be able to leave the wine virtual desktop, even when the game is paused.
These are just my findings thus far. I'd prefer to be able to play the game fullscreen and have it catch the mouse but allow the mouse to escape if the game were paused.
