What works

Everything up to Fort Joy, didn't played longer yet. Except that books and status icons for main characters are black/not rendered, like others report -- otherwise would rate Gold.

I didn't compare perfomance with native Windows, but on my spec it plays smoothly on ultra graphic settings, despite it eating 100% load on 4 out of my 8 CPU cores even in menu.

What does not


What was not tested

Full game playthrough and multiplayer.

Additional Comments

Followed through all the instructions listed in Skyrim's page before to get it running, and since then every game I install plays somewhat nice and smooth, including D:OS2.
win version: Win 7
winetricks xact
winetricks dinput xinput dinput8
Set all dinput, dinput8, and xinput dlls to "builtin,native" in winecfg
disable nvapi in winecfg

winetricks physx dotnet462 vcrun2010 msxml6

Also, my cursor was offset a bit before I switched to "Faked fullscreen".

Running from launcher from Steam then takes a lot of silent time before the game actually shows up. Be careful not to run several of them simultaneously.

And somewhy steam runs installation of Microsoft .NET framework everytime I run the game.

And I had to redownload the game due to its load progress was lost, but that's Steam problem.

Seems to work fine on wine 5.5. The only caveat is that you can't open it from the steam menu, but run Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Divinity Original Sin 2 instead.

Patching the game with radare2
by Beren Minor on Thursday September 6th 2018, 17:38
Hi, it's indeed related to the CPU and the result returned by SetThreadAffinityMask in some situations where it probably failed to match the CPU cores.

Here's a radare2 patch for DOS2: Definitive Edition:

Another way to do it would be to patch wine so that SetThreadAffinityMask doesn't return 0.

Beren Minor, I would be happy to test a patched wine on my systems, thank you for finding this!
DOS2 runs on very specific HW configurations but not others

after testing EoCApp.exe on a few machines using the same Xubuntu 18.04.1 nvidia 396.54, wine staging 3.14 and DXVK .70 setup I get:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3470 CPU, GTX1070 - fail
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4590 CPU, GTX 680 - fail
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU, GTX 670MX - runs great
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2679QM CPU, GTX670MX - runs great

wine-staging 3.x
by Cláudio Sampaio (Patola) on Monday June 11th 2018, 5:47
Has anyone succeeded in running it via wine-staging 3.x? In wine-staging 2.21 it works alright but still has the black books bug. In wine-staging 3.x it gives a black screen at start. Or, should I try using it with dxvk?

I haven't gotten it working with wine-staging 3.11 + DXVK.

Wine 3.0 results?
by Jonathan Dunlap on Thursday January 18th 2018, 14:30
Can someone retest with Wine 3 since its been released now?
RE: Wine 3.0 results?
by A on Saturday February 3rd 2018, 2:18
Books still blacked out on 3.1, making them unreadable. I still have to run the game via the EoCApp.exe executable, so no obvious change since 2.x.
