Additional Comments

The game run fine with some workarounds, first in order to work, you need to navigate to Steam > SteamApps > common > Assassins Creed and rename AssassinsCreed_Dx10.exe to whatever you want (or delete it) and rename AssassinsCreed_Dx9.exe to AssassinsCreed_Dx10.exe. This is necessary because Steam try to open DX10 version of AC that still doesn't work on wine and this tricks steam to run DX9 version. For me the game freeze every time that i've pressed any key, to solve this problem it was necessary to disable the gameoverlayrenderer dll in winecfg. Besides that, the only patchs that i need to do is for steam to work on wine. I've also installed vcrun, corefonts and msxml but it isn't necessary, this just make things flow better.
