Additional Comments

The game launcher can be bypassed by launching Steam and then manually running "Program Files (x86)/Steam/SteamApps/common/Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32/Borderlands2.exe". If running from terminal and game fails to launch, make sure you have set the correct $WINEPREFIX variable and cd into the directory of the Borderlands2.exe executable before running. All launcher settings are available in game so bypassing the launcher is not an issue. The following dll and windows components were installed: d3dx10, d3dx11_43, d3dx9_43, d3dx9, directx9, physx (enables physx menu option), vcrun2008, vcrun2010, xact_jun2010, xact. The game may launch and work almost perfectly with less, but installing physx without some of the other components can cause the game to hang at game load. Some minor graphical glitches appear (small black dots) when "Depth of field" is enabled.

HowTo / Notes


2015-01-31 Admin note: the following was extracted from a user comment made in 2014 and may not apply to current Wine.

Even with .NET installed through Winetricks, there is still a chance that the game will not launch. In this situation, add "-NoLauncher" to the launch options, and it should work.
