All features in the Magic 2015 Demo.
What does not
See comments for workarounds. Loading the game does not work (will crash at intro sequence). Installing Microsoft VC Redist dependency via Steam does not work.
What was not tested
Any features of the game beyond the demo are untested.
These results are valid with the Magic 2015 Demo available on Steam. WORKAROUNDS =========== 1. The game will not load past the intro sequence and will crash. Workaround courtesy of http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36977#c2 a. Open winecfg for your $WINEPREFIX b. Use DLL override on "xaudio2_7" and disable it. 2. Steam will attempt to install dependency "Microsoft VC Redist" when starting up the game. The dependency will fail to install and take an incredibly long time (~5 mins), after which the game will load. When reloading the game, this dependency will attempt to install again. The dependency that fails is the Microsoft VC Redist 2012 version. Workaround: a. Navigate to $WINEPREFIX/.../Steam/steamapps/common/Magic 2015*/_CommonRedist/vcredist/2012 b. Delete or rename installscript.vdf to prevent Steam from installing it. WARNING ======= This game is prone to data corruption and/or data loss. For example, winecfg allows you to change your Windows version (e.g., from Windows XP to Windows 7). This will definitely cause data loss. I recommend periodically backing up your data.
