|Latest Wine Version Tested:||5.7-staging|
Maintainers: About Maintainership
Installation via Steam
What does not
GTA 5 Launcher
What was not tested
Anything after the launcher, basically the game itself.
Launcher does not work due to pagefault trying to access dotnet 4.0, unfortunatly trying to install dotnet40 via winetricks does not work in 64bit prefix, launcher and game both require 64bit enviornment to run. Likely getting dotnet40 to work on wine 64bit is the key to this launcher working. Attempting to launch the game itself brings about another error (You would expect to get the error you get on windows, telling you to start the game via the gta launcher, however, you error out in Wine with this message: fixme:d3d11:D3D11CreateDevice adapter (nil), driver_type D3D_DRIVER_TYPE_HARDWARE, swrast (nil), flags 0, feature_levels (nil), levels 0, sdk_version 7, device (nil), feature_level 0x22fbd8, context (nil) stub! After that, the game crashes. This is likely due to lack of DX 11 support for Wine, as Wine only supports DX9, and you can't play GTA 5 with DX9 even on windows (i actually booted up my 64bit Win xp to try, and it says it needs dx11 to run), gta 5 will need to be ported to opengl for Linux to ever see playability or any kind.

If you are running wine-staging 2.21 you'll need to spam alt+enter when the game is loading to fix the blackscreen.
Currently it's the best to use the unofficial wine-staging 3.4: https://github.com/wine-stagin...

I installed GTA5 via Steam. It loads up fine and I went into the settings to lower GTA's graphical settings. I click the button to load Story Mode, it loads for about 15 seconds, and then it freezes and crashes.

But I'm not sure whether this is a dxvk issue because radv also freezes the GPU in other (native) Vulkan games

NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 w/ 384.111 NVIDIA drivers
CSMT enabled, virtual desktop disabled
I don't know how the other users are able to get GTA 5 to run in Wine.
I tried with 2.15-staging, 2.21-staging, 3.0-rc2, and 3.0.
The problem appears to be that the Social Club launcher requires dotnet40, and Wine is unable to install dotnet40 in a 64-bit prefix.
However, GTA5 will ONLY install in a 64-bit prefix.
Therefore, I would like to know how the other users are able to get past the issue with the Social Club launcher not running as I have seen this issue mentioned a number of times on Reddit, on the web, etc.
I see one user said they updated the launcher using a Virtual Machine, I tried that, and I was able to get the launcher to run successfully on a virtual machine, but when I went to copy the files to the Wine 64-bit prefix directory I had the same problem as before, with Social Club crashing with subprocess.exe: 000000c2 (D) C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\Social Club\subprocess.exe"

- Nvidia GT 630 w/ 387 drivers
- Linux Mint 18.2 XFCE
- winehq-staging 2.21
- CSMT enabled, virtual desktop disabled
When I try the workaround on my 1280x720 TV it pretty much always works (-online and ALT+TAB on loading screen), when I try it on my 1920x1080 monitor it never works. I also tried setting the resolution to 720p on the monitor and it doesn't fix it

Does anybody know how to fix it??

- 64-bit wine prefix
- NVIDIA 387.34 driver
- wine staging 2.21
- GTA 5 from Steam
- -dx10 in the launch options
- Chose "GTA Online" in the launch menu from Steam
- Activated virtual desktop with size 1280x720
I can hear audio when launching but Alt+Enter doesn't get me out of the black screen. Any idea?

I have the "Enable CSMT for better graphic performance" and "Enable VAAPI as backend for DXVA2 GPU decoding" in the Staging options enabled. I can hear sound but no video.

But I had 4 problems:
1. 1 launcher couldn't download updates
2. Game started with black screen
3. Mouse didn't work correctly (camera rotated by about 120 degrees)
4. On the sky I had "flashing objects".
Solutions for 2. and 4. are in "How To" - press Alt+Enter twice (if you want to play on fullscreen) but DirectX 10 set in game options.
3. - change mouse mode to "Windows"
1. - It took a lot of time because I had to use... virtual machine with Windows. I installed game normally and launched. When the launcher started to downloading updates I've closed it. Then in VirtualBox in VM with Windows I installed game again, updated and then copied to location where I've installed GTA on host.
I know it's complicated and requires a lot of disk space (about 200GB!! - 2xGTA+Windows) but Rockstar doesn't give any option to download and install updates manually.
I hope it will help someone else :)

But basically it works with 2 first options in stagging enabled.
