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
- Ubuntu 14.04+ (I only tested this on 14.04)
- Playonlinux Installed
- Diablo III exe
- Wine installed
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.
Run Playonlinux and select Install a program
Select games, then search for Diablo III and install it
Select use setup file in my computer
Select the exe you downloaded from Blizzard
Somethings will be downloaded automatically, just wait
You’ll eventually see this open up, select the language
Continue through the windows
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.
Keep going through the windows
Once Diablo finishes downloading, exit it
You might see this window, select the amount of ram your graphics card has
I saw these funky graphics when I booted up Diablo 3
Go into, game menu -> options, and uncheck Anti-Aliasing
