What works

Nothing works. This game (DVD Retail) is _FALSELY_ advertised as "working" with some javascript bullshit that simply appends arguments to the execution of the binary, something you could do on the command line easily ("Lutris"). 

I tried the options the javascript trash "Lutris" appends (-noChunkDownload and the other options) (it just invokes the wine bla.exe -options, but using JaVaScRiPt and 20000 dependancies to do the magic a bash script could do)

Anyway, with or without said options the social club launcher fails a min in with "Unhandled exception page fault bla bla bla".

No way around this.

What does not



It is a LIE to say the DVD version works "PLATINUM"(ly). It DOES NOT WORK AT ___ALL____


What was not tested

Nothing. Even the HaX to get around the launchers failed with the same errors.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

All Lutris does is append some command line options to the invocation of the exe, and set some environment variable.
