Additional Comments

I did two tests: First test was done on 32bit prefix with all versions of .NET (2.0 - 4.5) installed. While the launcher did not work, the game ran fine by executing Borderlands2.exe. Played for about two hours and game only crashed once at startup. Second test was done with a clean 32bit prefix with only .NET 4 installed through Winetricks this time. I started up Steam, launched BL2 from there, let it install all the components, and this time the launcher worked! Have to run it in Windows XP mode! Other wise launcher will not work. Issues this time around: -Launcher did crash at first, but since then worked fine. -Once, when I joined a co-op game, the entire map was black. However, it did fix itself next map -Sometimes, when using ironsight, black squares will show on models. Surprised how well this worked in the latest version of Wine. Previous tests resulted in BL2 not even working.

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.
