Installing from Steam, Or Other Directory, and prerequisites.
What does not
Problems installing Game, most likely due to newer DirectX, and missing dependencies from Dot-net 4 and 4.7.1.
I Tested on Wine 3.0rc, but could not get past a repeating black screen. Identical instructions were used so additional testing may reveal a working config.
I also Tested on Wine 2 Staging, with a working 32bit version. Identical instructions were used so additional testing may reveal a working config.
What was not tested
Other Release versions of Wine 3.
# Variations of this guide were used with Wine 3 and could not get past a repeating black screen, works for Wine 2 Staging.
#Credit to the WinHQ Forum users here, with some adjustments
# Create a prefix
# Set to 32 bit mode, more testing needed for 64
# Set Wine to XP
# Install the game via Steam (if using steam), otherwise install with installer or copy over
winetricks -q vcrun2017 dotnet40 gdiplus
#Install Visual Studio runtime '17, Dotnet 4.0 and GDI+
# Find SlimDXRuntime.msi:
wine msiexec /i $(find $WINEPREFIX -name SlimDXRuntime.msi)
# See above about where to find this. It threw an error but worked anyway for me.
# Install Dot Net 4.7.1
# The previous installer clears this key for some reason.
# Add the key HKLOCAL\Software\Microsoft\.NetFramework\InstallRoot
# Value = 'c:\\Windows\\Microsoft.Net\\Framework\\
# Add "api-ms-win-core-xstate-l2-1-0" as native-only override
# api-ms-win-core-winrt-roparameterizediid-l1-1-0 (native, builtin)
# gdiplus (builtin)
# mscoree (native)
# vcomp140 (Native, builtin)
# With Steam, Remove "InstallScripts" data from 'C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\appmanifest_644930.acf'
# cd into the game directory to run, crashes outside.
#This was recreated from a fresh prefix to test this guide and worked first time on Wine 2 Staging.
