Additional Comments

Game of the Year + Headhunter DLCs + Upgrade Pack 2 Run as Windows 7 Core i3-3240 @ 3.4ghz conservative setting Gigabyte GT 640 @ 1025mhz 8gb gSkill 1066 / 7 CAS 1366x768 Resolution, most settings low / textures high, running "smooth 22-62 framerate" setting; barely uses the CPU at all. Made some ini tweaks; without dynamic shadows runs around 35-60fps in 95% of places; with dynamic shadows, will drop to 25ish, very rarely hits 20 or below (enormous places like looking down at Liar's Berg will stick right around 20, gets worse the bigger it is). Installed on basic wine1.6 install, already had directx and xaudio fixes from installing other games. Had to copy XAPOFX1_5.dll into /Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32/ folder to get it to run; cannot launch from steam, have to run the exe from the folder.

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.
