Installing Diablo III on Ubuntu

November 21, 2015 on install

Decided to try out Diablo III yesterday. I downloaded Diablo III and installed it in less than 30 mins, it was quite easy and actually spent most of the time waiting for it to download.

What You Will Need

As always I highly recommend Playonlinux, it creates a virtual drive for each game. This lets you configure wine specifically for one game and not affect the others.

First install Playonlinux and then run it.

2 Run Playonlinux and select Install a program

3 Select games, then search for Diablo III and install it

4 Select use setup file in my computer

5 Select the exe you downloaded from Blizzard

6 Somethings will be downloaded automatically, just wait

7 You’ll eventually see this open up, select the language

8 Continue through the windows

9 Log into Blizzard

Note: I had trouble selecting the region. I ended up clicking on it, then using the keyboard arrows to select North America.

10 Keep going through the windows

11 Once Diablo finishes downloading, exit it

12 You might see this window, select the amount of ram your graphics card has

13 I saw these funky graphics when I booted up Diablo 3

14 Go into, game menu -> options, and uncheck Anti-Aliasing

15 Now play!
