What works

  • Installation via Steam
  • Starting the Game

What does not

Using an unpatched, official version of wine:

  • Starting a new game, it crashes

Using a patched version of wine (details below):

  • Setting the shader to high - it will destroy the savegame and since the game configuration is somehow saved in all savegames, one must delete all saved games if this happens.
  • Collecting so many items that the size of the save file exceeds the 300 KB mark causes the game to crash.
  • The HUD is flickering sometimes, not sure why. I've tried different Wine Direct3D settings using the registry, but no luck.
  • I could not get my XBox 360 gamepad to work. Wine recognizes it (it is displayed in wine control), but the game won't.

Note: Darksiders II is a very buggy game; there are lots of reports online from people who have trouble running it under windows. Also note that there is no gamepad support besides the Xbox 360 ones.

Additional Comments

The game works and is very playable using a patched version of wine. Download the wine 1.7.8 source tree and apply this patch: Use a clean wineprefix and winetricks: winetricks d3dx11_43 d3dx9_36 vcrun2010
