What works

Setup, setup official plugins, playing, music, saving and loading game.

What does not

Gameplay is impossible with HDR. Pixel shadered water have some strange lines. Making screenshots have bugs with GNOME or KDE sometimes, but you can use Shift+Printscreen, it makes BMP files in the Oblivion directory without bugs. Game buzzes after 5-30 seconds when I left undeground suddenly.


What was not tested

Playing long time, many unofficial plugins.

Additional Comments

I done test of this game in November and I see some changes. Myself compilated Wine has strange lines on the water in any version of Morrowind and Oblivion. In November Pixel Shadered water can't works. It is only Ubuntu bug or not? I use next parameters in winecfg: OS: Windows XP; Sound, Hardware Acceleration: Emulation; Drives: D - /media/cdrom0 - CD-ROM, Automatic detection. Patch was integrated in Russian localization of the game. Installation works fine if you use original DVD. If you use mounted ISO, you must use "sudo wine" parameter to correct installation of all files. After that, put d3dx9_27.dll in "Oblivion" directory or install DirectX 9.0c using this manual: . Rename d3dx9_xx.dll too. OblivionLauncher can change your videocard options, you can manage your plugins. Then, click at "Play". I can't skip first video. I can change all of controls. After this, I can start new game. Music works. I see no troubles... But after loading all is very write! I change HDR to Bloom... Today it works! Game works fine ;) There is some new things after half of year. Now Pixel Shaders 2.0 in water and grass works too! And I have not defect illusion when characters move in this version of Wine. If I press Diary button, game don't crashes now. Caps Lock key don't work as yet. Playing long time is impossible for me. How to play normally, what I need to do?

HowTo / Notes


A bug present (8128) renders the game virtually useless due to not being able to load or save the game properly. Keep this in mind if you intend to play as you won't be able to get very far or at least continue.

Bug 8128 is NOT a Wine bug. Please install an official patch.
