Additional Comments

On the rare event that one can manage to make Origin work under Wine, Dead Space 3 will work with the Origin multiplayer service. Origin is the problem, here. Dead Space 3 runs fantastically well, and I'm able to pull upwards of 90 FPS on maximum settings. This is as good as or superior to my performance on Windows.

Bug just before chaper 13
by Silviu C. on Sunday December 22nd 2013, 5:48
Just before Chapter 13 starts, there is a boss fight with a big bug that tries to suck the player inside it. The thing is that on wine, this fight is bugged.

After shooting this thing in its exposed heart (yellow thing) it's supposed to fall a bit and start sucking air inside it. On wine, the bug appears to just fall off the cliff-side entirely and there is no way to finish the fight.

I tried the same save file on my Win7 install and the fight worked as it should have.

This YT video shows what boss fight I'm talking about:

If you can get the game running, the boss fight is fine now.

Oh, this interesting. Which version of wine have you tested this with?

I just finished the entire game. Started playing with 1.7.34, but most of the game was completed under 1.7.35.

Note that the game has to be cracked, or it crashes during the title screen. It never used to do this AFAICT, but I suspect the application was updated via Origin at some point to cause this regression.

It's also worth noting that changes to deadspace3.exe cause changes to the save game format, such that they are no longer compatible. ie. a crack that replaces deadspace3.exe will not create/load save games which were created with the original deadspace3.exe, or even deadspace3.exe modified by a different crack! I was ~40% of the way through the game (played it ages ago), but had to start over from scratch (in a different save game slot) to use a crack just to get it running.

Additionally, there were some parts of the game where automatic loading of a check point upon death did not work - I would get a light blue screen and then I was automatically dead again before I could even see anything. This would loop indefinitely, so I would have to exit out of the game to the menu and manually load a save. As the save points are different to the check points (and unfortunately far less frequent), this worked. Just try not to die too often because there's way too much back tracking required due to this issue. No idea if it's a DS3 issue, an issue with the crack I was using, or a problem with Wine... but it was annoying as heck.

Oh yeah, I did run into that bug once. I was "investigating" the internal parts of one of those big necro things. Died and then I got this same loop of reloading and then being dead without being able to actually play. I had to restart the mission :) (it's one annoying mission too)

So do you know if it is at all possible to play co-op through origin?
RE: Gameplay Video
by Xpander on Monday February 18th 2013, 3:20
not yet.
until origin problems are solved

What exactly are the origin problems?
Because for me the origin application works(somewhat), it's just when I try to download games/demos from the store, the download speed is unbearably slow, but if I can download the Dead Space 3 files from somewhere else and put it in the origin download, and if I can get the game to start through origin, would I be able to play online like that?

I have played Co-op with a friend via Origin on Wine.
