What works

Installation, game play. 

What does not

Only the DirectX version works.


Some extra steps are necessary to install and get things working, such as setting the win version to XP prior to installation.  

What was not tested


Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

I recommend following these steps:

Make a new wineprefix:

mkdir ~/Crysis

export WINEPREFIX=~/Crysis

Set the winearch to win64

export WINEARCH=win64

Set the windows version to xp before installation:

winecfg ( set version to xp)

Now install:

wine (path to GOG)/crysis_2.0.0.7.exe

Go to the Bin64 directory:


cd drive_c/GOG Games/Crysis/Bin64

Run "crysis.exe"

wine crysis.exe

This was done on an AMD Raven Ridge 2400g with Vega 11 graphics.  Crysis works using staging and Gallium nine.

64-bit version
by Art on Friday June 21st 2019, 5:14
export WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_crysis # or whatever - clean wineprefix never hurts
cd ~/.wine/Path/To/Crysis/Bin64/
wine Crysis.exe; wine Crysis64.exe -dx9 # It'll crash first with something like "can't launch main application" message, but after clicking "Ok" button it'll run just fine.
# Also - no annoying battery meter in 64-bit version!

apparently you're not the only person that bugs, it appears to be a feature of the CryEngine and only happens on laptop systems. It's a CryEngine issue and not a wine issue so I'm going to leave it as an exercise to do the hunting for hiding battery information from Cry Engine. You might try fooling with ACPI to hide your battery (presuming you're running on a laptop.)
Battery Meter

Any way to disable the battery meter present in the top right corner? Take a look at screenshots for more reference. I mean this NA 255 thing.

Sorry but I don't see any screen shots and when I run the game, I don't see a battery meter.

You need to follow the instructions carefully:

Create a new wine prefix and set your winearch to win64:
mkdir ~/Crysis
export WINEPREFIX=~/Crysis
export WINEARCH=win64
winecfg (set windows version to XP)
wine /setup_crysis_2.0.0.7.exe

Then cd to the Bin64 directory:
cd drive_c/GOG\ Games/Crysis/Bin64/
wine Crysis.exe

I just did the above and it worked although I'm running wine 3.10 Staging + Gallium 9 but it works with and without Gallium 9.
