Get Grimoire running on other OS through WINE
By Epsilon
You're watching all the Windows users basking in the glow of The Golden Baby, and you want that glow as well, but you're running another operating system? This is a small guide for you.

For this guide you're going to need either some variant of Linux, or Mac OS with wine and winetricks ready to go.
Baby steps
Step one.
Make your new prefix
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix winecfg
A configuration window comes up, close it.

Step two.
Install the prerequisite libraries that Grimoire needs.
env WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix winetricks directmusic gmdls

Watchout for errors. Sometimes the servers can't be found, and you'll have to download the files winetricks wants through google and place them in ~/.cache/winetricks/<libraryname> and rerun the command to install them.

Step three. Install the Windows version of steam.
env WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix winetricks steam

Steam login window comes up, set it up, install Grimoire. Now bask in the golden glow, like it's 1992.

to run Grimoire in the future you have to define the path to steam and run it through wine and launch Grimoire.
WINEPREFIX=/mnt/path/to/prefix wine "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe"

And if you're a really smart cookie. You'll make a bash script that does it for you and launches Grimoire. And have it ready on your desktop.

#!/bin/sh export WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix WINE=/bin/wine $WINE "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 650670
chmod +x to make the script executable or set it executable in properties.

Thank you for this guide ! And the game actually looks better in fullscreen than on Windows (no screen stretching).

Great work!

Do you mind if I put this on the wiki? Or perhaps you'd like to put it on there yourself?
