While the previous games centered around the Valley of Mines and
Khorinis, Gothic 3 moves away from those locations to a newer, larger
environment. This story involves the continent of Myrtana, which is in
the midst of war. Orcs have enslaved the human kingdom with only a few
free humans living in the nearly uninhabitable icy northlands of
Nordmar, the southern desert of Varrant, and the mountainous forests of
the Middle Realm. Players can choose to join the rebellion and stay
true to the deposed human king, serve the Orcish usurpers in their
quest to topple the last remaining human stronghold, or choose a path
that serves their own ends. Every decision made has an impact on the
game world, and tips the in-game balance of power. Given the non-linear
storyline, every game is theoretically unique, with the player
ultimately deciding the fate of humankind. A number of NPCs accompany
the player throughout the game.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Everything works flawlessly (see what does not work and not tested).
Notably the mouse works without problem compared to my vanilla Ubuntu 15.04 test.
Low quality settings work with my integrated graphics card.
What does not
Nothing subversive found.
Only full screen resolution worked but this seems to be Mac OS X - related because other games gave this issue too.
What was not tested
Only played for about 7 hours so far. Day 5. Level 15.
Patching, modding, jerry rigging not attempted.
Vanilla install. No Winetricks yet.
Only low quality settings attempted for now.
Discrete graphics card for higher settings use not attempted.
Latest Steam updates and implicit game version.
Fun and accessible game. Worlds apart from predecessors!

MouseBug: Choose between two bads ...

With Wine 1.7.50 there is still the problem of mouse blocking and preventing rotation.
Setting MouseWrapOverride in registry to 'force' solves this problem but leads to another:
Now the mouse pointer is dragged to the screen's center which at first prevents from selection in main menu. After with much struggle loading or starting the game you are able to fully rotate but you won't be able to interact with e.g. the inventory or character sheet as you cannot control the pointer adequately. As there is no control via keyboard this is not to be circumvented.
So unfortunately game is not playable in any of these modes.

Since I've installed the 1.3.28 version of Wine, the mouse cursor doesn't work fine anymore.
I can move the mouse in any direction as soon as the mouse cursor doesn't hit in the "background" the desktop borders.. ..after that i can't get the mouse move in one or more directions. This is very annoying since I have to use the keyboard to turn left or right.
Does any of you know any solution, or hint? I couldn't find a good set of words to find a solution on google. :-)
Sky: is there a way to get the sky "blue" instead of the "dark" one i have? :)
