HowTo / Notes

Works best with Gallium Nine

The framerate, and number of graphical glitches, are greatly improved (e.g. the sniper rifle's crosshairs are visible) by using the combination of Nouveau and Gallium Nine, rather than Nvidia's proprietary driver.

Can't login to Uplay
by Zootal on Sunday March 25th 2018, 16:28
Is anyone able to get past Uplay login, or how to you get past this point? No matter what I do, it tells me the uplay servers are offline. I can't start Uplay in offline mode without first logging in. No Uplay, no Farcry....

So apparently you need wine-staging to get past Uplay. I looked a the Uplay page for wine, and it seems getting Uplay to work can be iffy, but one of the workarounds is to use wine staging.

That worked. Now it locks up every 2 minutes. Screen freezes, mouse stops moving - hard locked. After another minute it quietly crashes to desktop . So now that I can get it to run, how to you keep it running for more than afew minutes without lockingup?
Load problem

If you're not able to run new game/continue old one, you probably should install binkw32.dll using winetricks.
If it doesn't work, try to install d3dx11_43 and d3dx10_43 also.
Low FPS fix

Hardware:
R7 1700x
Asus PRIME B350-PLUS
Ram G.Skill F4-3600C17D-32GTZR(3200Mhz)
GTX 1060 6GB

This game can only be played with a system like this and dx11 enabled. Otherwise no good FPS.

Must be played with modified GamerProfile.xml(set file to read only):

DirectX 9

Forgot to mention in my test results, that I changed "used3d11" to 0 in gamerprofile.xml.

I followed your steps to the letter but all I got was uplay crash dialog on arch linux :)

What windows version did you emulate? Any other tips?

Wine is set to Windows Xp. Mine was crashing on launch until I installed crypt32, don't know anything beyond that.

nVidia driver 346.35

Fixed a GLSL compiler bug that would produce corruption when running games such as Far Cry 3 in Wine.

Worth a shot to try again?
