What works

Game works, but all scenes are rendered with too much black (see the screenshots).

What does not

Correct colour rendering does not work.


to make uplay work:

Use the default clean Wineprefix ( 64-bit, no dll overrides except for d3dx11_43).

In winecfg:

  • Graphics tab, disable Allow Window Manager to decorate windows
  • Staging tab: enable csmt (this is the current Wine default anyway)
  • Applications tab: select Windows 7

You need to install with apt: cabextract and libtxc-dxtn-s2tc (from stretch repo). With winetricks install corefonts.

Remove UplayCrashReporter.exe:

rm ${WINEPREFIX:-${HOME}/.wine}/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Ubisoft/Ubisoft Game Launcher/UplayCrashReporter.exe

- before running this game.

What was not tested

Multiplayer or other features.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source
