What works

Running the game
Single player
Character creation
First two missions of the campaign
LAN Multiplayer with "winetricks directplay"
Modding tools
Mods (tested Fallout Tactics Redux)

What does not

Multiplayer doesn't work out-of-box ("disconnected from TCP/IP"), but this can be fixed.
Multiplayer often goes out of sync without a warning, while Windows versions do not seem have this problem.


"winetricks directplay" to fix multiplayer.

What was not tested

Completing the campaign
Online multiplayer
Modding tools extensively

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Installing "directplay" was necessary via winetricks for the LAN multiplayer to work.
The rest of the game works perfectly with a clean wineprefix.
