What works

Direct connect multiplayer. The game itself seems quite buggy though.

What does not

Single player just hangs at the loading screen with the loading bar not filling up and the tipps cycling through at the top.


What was not tested


Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Performance varies wildly.

You need an extra patch for wine 3.15 to make the game get past the black screen at the start:

Patching is a PITA! For the BEST experience I've installed gog-galaxy via lutris and let the game update with that. I also wrote a small script to start the game with the custom wine version posted above:

cd "/opt/games/wine/divinity-original-sin-2/Divinity - Original Sin 2"

export W=/opt/games/wine/divinity-original-sin-2/wine

I was finally able to run it in wine-staging 3.9
by Cláudio Sampaio (Patola) on Saturday June 23rd 2018, 18:26
I am going to paste the video that I used as a reference.
In the end, I ended up running it on Ubuntu 18.04 64 bits, NVIDIA driver 396, wine-staging 3.9 + dxvk 0.52 via Lutris:
wine-staging 2.17??

Why 2.17? At the time Wine 3.7 was out, 2.21 was the latest version of the old wine-staging. And it works in this version.
However it doesn't work with the newer wine-staging 3.7 yet.

> Why 2.17?

Because there were successful tests on this exact version.

Which version of the game did you use? Would be extremely helpful to get both game version and release version. What graphics card, what driver?

Ubuntu 18.04, wine-staging 2.21 via Lutris, Playonlinux and native.

I am currently trying to make it work with wine-staging 3.10 and dxvk 0.60. No success yet.
