Installing Diablo III on Ubuntu

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.

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

Now play!
