What was not tested
*Version tested: 188.8.131.52 *Gpu info: Radeon RX 480 - Mesa version 1:17.1.4-0~x~padoka0 All credit for this solution goes to Philipp, who submitted a successful test running on Arch Linux (see: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=35556 for more detailed info ) I am just here to confirm that this also works on Linux Mint, and to elaborate, for those not familiar with setting environment variables (via a shell-script, in this case): Quote from Philipp's test: ---- With MESA-based graphics drivers it requries a workaround to run. So for the game to work with any free software graphics driver you need to set the following environment variable. export MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.3COMPAT -------- What this means is, that if you are using MESA-based graphics drivers (if you have an AMD card for example) you need to run " export MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.3COMPAT" in your command-line / terminal, and then start the game through that same terminal window. If you just run "export "MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.3COMPAT", then close the terminal and/or try to run the game through the shortcut, the variable will go back to its default value, and the game will not load. In practice the easiest way I have found, is to make a shell script which sets the variable and runs the game, which, in short, is done like this: 1. make a new txt-file/document. 2: Write this line in the document: "MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.3COMPAT && [the wine run-command contained in the game shortcut (view this by right clicking it and going to "properties")]". In other words, depending on your system configuration, the text in your txt-file should (minus the " " 's) look something like: "export MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.3COMPAT && env WINEPREFIX="/home/username/.wine" /opt/wine-staging/bin/wine C:\\windows\\command\\start.exe /Unix /home/username/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/Public/Desktop/Battle\ Brothers.lnk". 3. Save the changes to the .txt-file and close it. 4. Make the txt-file a shell-script by renaming the file, changing it's ".txt" extension to ".sh". 5. Make the shell-script executable as a program by right-clicking and going to "properties/permissions" and checking the box found there, and close the dialog. 6. Double click the shell-script to run it, and wait for Battle Brothers to launch . (you may need to choose "run in terminal" when the dialog pops up). _____ Once again thank you to Philipp, (see: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=35556 ) for finding a way to make Battle Brothers work with Wine.
