What was not tested
Smite will install in Wine 2.12 with persistence. I recommend running it in Wine 2.12-staging. It may crash several times during download/install. It may reinstall the entire game. It may ask to install pre-requisites multiple times. It might inform you a pre-requisite failed to install. Keep restarting HirezLauncherUI.exe everytime it freezes or crashes. Eventually, it will install everything and run smoothly after that. For reference: I installed Smite in its own WINEPREFIX under a WINEARCH of win32. I installed 'd3dx10 d3dx11_43 d3dx9_43 directx9 dotnet40 gdiplus vcrun2008 vcrun2010 xact wininet' using winetricks. I launched SmiteInstall.exe from https://www.smitegame.com/download/ I downloaded, installed the game, and downloaded and installed any pre-requisites that it requested of me but did not allow background updating. I was persistent and everytime HirezLauncherUI.exe crashed or froze I stopped HirezLauncherUI.exe by passing it a sigint(Ctrl+c in the shell the program was started in) and restarted the wineserver ('wineserver -k'). Note: To launch Smite from HirezLauncherUI.exe, pass 'game=300 product=17' to Wine. Such as 'wine "path/to/HirezLauncherUI.exe" game=300 product=17'. The reason for this is becase Hi Rez uses the same launcher for their entire library(Paladins, Smite, etc.) and passes those variables to the launcher to determine what product to present to the user.
