What works


Gameplay - played for few hours

Performance is "laggy" after loading, looking around mostly helps.

You can update drive_c/GOG Games/Gothic 3/Ini/ge3.ini to get better performance.

Playing with wine-staging - csmt enabled works.

32 bit WinXP as well as 64 bit Win7 setting works.

What does not

  • Running out of the box:

in module Engine.dll at 0023:00B2F2D

- Kill the process "Gothic3" after

- Install the Gothic 3 Community Patch v1.75

  • Running without d3dx9_40.dll override

- Only Menu works

- World is black

  • Non EN Keyboard

- setting from KDE was not accepted - Numbers are not used

- You have to set it with "setxkbmap -layout us -variant euro"

Additional Comments

Gothic 3 Community Patch v1.75 Install Winetricks d3dx9 - only d3dx9_40 needed, but is missing in winetricks - Install d3dx9 and in winecfg enable only d3dx9_40 (native, builtin) corefont - menu and dialogs look better ge3.ini changes - Timer.ThreadSafe=false - Physics.Threads=4 - Camera.FOV=75 You can extend visibility 1) The Ocean fix. Install this first, in the thread you can see what it does. 2) Open your ge3.ini. Look for "Render.PrefetchGridCellSize=10000" and "Render.PrefetchGridCellSizeLowPoly=34000" Recognise that 10000? That was the maximum high detailed land distance before you would get errors. What LOLita changed it to in the ge3.ini: "Render.PrefetchGridCellSize=28000" "Render.PrefetchGridCellSizeLowPoly=280000" 3) Then, change: "DistanceHigh.fFarClippingPlane_High=10000.0" "DistanceHigh.fFarClippingPlane_Medium=8000.0" "DistanceHigh.fFarClippingPlane_Low=6000.0" to: "DistanceHigh.fFarClippingPlane_High=25000.0" "DistanceHigh.fFarClippingPlane_Medium=17500.0 " "DistanceHigh.fFarClippingPlane_Low=10000.0" Keyboard setting - EN layout - setxkbmap -layout us -variant euro - run before game from console
