How to install

You will need:

  • A recent version of Wine, it's generally recommended to use the latest development release.
  • A video card with good 3D acceleration support (on your chosen flavour of Unix).
  • The native 3D driver should be correctly installed for that card.
  • It's not necessary to install Bioshock into a clean Wineprefix - but generally it's recommended.


This game will install on a vanilla version of Wine. First install the Steam Client as per Steam AppDB page. Then install the Bioshock game from your newly installed Steam client (as per Windows). See the Known Issues section below to fix current problems with Bioshock.

Such a shame I can't play Bioshock 1 remastered. I guess I'll just go play Bioshock 1 in DirectX 10 mode. Oh wait, that doesn't work work either. Well then, I'll just play the original Resident Evil 1 which uses DirectX 3. Oh wait, that doesn't work either.
