What works

Installing (via Steam)

Running the game

Connecting to Server


What does not

Mouse movement can be restricted (believed to be because wine is set to force capture the mouse in full screen)

This can be recreated, from my experience, from alt tabbing in and out of the game.

Without the Graphic setting under wine, setting the mouse to not be captured in full screen, I have issues with playing the game because the mouse exists my screen. I figured this is do to my triple screen setup.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Do the mouse problem noted above, it was impossible to really move around and accomplish anything when it was acting up. When it working the game runs beautifully.

Additional Comments

Much of the actual game, was able to get it to run quite well on Very High at 1920x1080 both internal and actual resolution. Some graphic deffects that affect the plants such as them looking like 2d objects can be fixed by messing around with settings under the rendering settings. This was not done under a clean install, as such I didn't have to install any specific items through winetricks to get it to run. If needed I can post from winetricks the items I do have installed.

HowTo / Notes

Note
2015-02-11 Admin note: the following tips were extracted from a user comment made in 2014 and may not be relevant to current Wine.
- I eliminated most of the graphical flickering by setting Anti-aliasing to the lowest mode above 'disabled'.

- Setting 'mouseSmoothing=0;' int the user.DayZProfile file helps a lot!

- If you wonder why your torch is pointing slightly to the left of you r char, press 'space' ;-).

Note

2017-01-04 Admin note: BattleEye fails to start. See bug list. One can get around this by renaming DayZ.exe as DayZ_BE.exe. However, the the game will crash shortly after loading. If it doesn't crash, then one may not find a non-BattleEye server on which to play.
