MBD - Asus Z87PRO CPU - Intel i7 4770k RAM - 32 GB RAM SSD - Samsung 840 PRO VID - Nvidia 440 GT (310.xx) OS Mode - Windows 7 Prefix works better on 32-Bit, so for 64-Bit users please do the following: rm -fr ~/.wine export WINEARCH=win32 export WINEPREFIX="/home/USER/.wine" winecfg If it helps, this is my complete winetrick component list that applies for most applications.

The easiest way is to use winetricks:
$ sh winetricks directmusic
WARNING: winetricks sets more DLL overrides than necessary. In my case I had to remove the override for 'dsound' (winecfg -> Libraries) or the game would crash at the main menu: "C: failed to initialize sound, MSS reported: Broken waveOut driver â€“ â€™buffer doneâ€™ flag never set".
Otherwise if you don't want to use native dlls, you have to disable music by setting 'musicEnabled=0' in [Gothic_2_Path]/system/gothic.ini .
It is possible to run Gothic II using the open source graphics stack, at least with Intel and Radeon cards. The "i965" (Intel GMA X3100) and "r300" (ATi Radeon 9500 - X1950) drivers are reported to work, others will probably work as well, so please test it and leave a comment below.
What you need is S3 Texture Compression (S3TC), a technology covered by a patent which makes things complicated.
What you have to do:
- Get the GUI tool 'driconf'. For examle: 'sudo apt-get install driconf'
- Start 'driconf', either from the console or from an entry in your application menu.
- Find the entry "Enable S3TC texture compression even if software support is not available" and set it to "yes"
- Start Gothic normally and hope that it works flawlessly.
Since mesa-7.11 this should also work with gallium drivers without having a libtxc_dxtn.so.
There are issues, for example, the floor might be invisible. Leave a comment :)
Azerty layout has numbers accessible with the shift key so switching weapons was broken and there is nothing in the settings to change that. The workaround was to switch to another layout using : setxkbmap us Changing it in the Gnome 3.22 menu didn't work.
When using SPINE to get HD textures and DirectX 11 rendering you might have to download SHW32.dll and vdfs32g.dll and copy them to C:\Windows\System32
