What works

Full game, controller support, settings menu.

What does not

Audio settings have no effect. Music tracks regularly overlap and cause clipping. See workarounds for fix.


In winecfg override xaudio2_7 to (native, bulitin)

Do not install xact

Previous versions of wine (<=3.10-staging) should install xact through winetricks xact in conjunction with the listed dll overrides fix audio issues.

If you are between versions 3.10-staging and 3.16-staging you can try the game without xact first, override xaudio2_7 if the audio isn't good install xact

What was not tested

  • Anything mod related
  • Seal the Deal DLC

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Like plenty of windows games this one minimizes when tabbed out, on window managers without minimizing functionality like i3 this basically crashes the game.

You can solve this by emulating a virtual desktop in winecfg, though you might have to set fullscreen on launch every time.

How to launch? I try, but Wine isn`t react.

I believe there is an issue with launching games from the gog galaxy 2.0 client you should check that appdb page here: if you haven't already tried, launch it from your installation directory directly; this usually breaks multiplayer features that rely on gog galaxy.
