  1. Detailed description of Installing Fallout New Vegas:
  2.  
  3. Note: This is what I had to do. From reading comments I believe I had the most trouble of everyone to get the game running, so you might find some of my steps (perhaps mostly towards the end) unnecessary. If you can see that I've made some really blatant mistake somewhere, please let me know! Good luck!
  4.  
  5. $ mkdir .wine-fnv
  6.  
  7. $ wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
  8. $ WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-fnv sh ~/winetricks directx9 vcrun2008 comctl32 cc580
  9.  
  10. $ WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-fnv wine /media/FNV_ENGLISH/Setup.exe
  11.  
  12. After the install has finished, quit both game and Steam before you continue.
  13.  
  14. $ WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-fnv winecfg
  15.  
  16. In Winecfg go to Libraries and add gameoverlayrenderer and set it to "disabled", then change Windows version to Vista.
  17.  
  18. Close Winecfg and go to regedit:
  19.  
  20. $ WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-fnv regedit
  21.  
  22. Navigate to
  23.  
  24. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D
  25.  
  26. In case you don't see the Direct3D folder, simply right-click the Wine folder, select "New -> Key" and name it Direct3D
  27.  
  28. Inside Direct3D, add the following strings and set the following values: (right-clicking is your friend.)
  29.  
  30. 1) Name:        DirectDrawRenderer                      Value: opengl
  31. 2) Name:        Multisampling                           Value: Disabled
  32. 3) Name:        OffscreenRenderingMode  Value: fbo
  33. *4) Name:       VideoMemorySize                 Value: 512
  34.  
  35. * String 4 might only be necessary for people with Nvidia GeForce 8600/9600 graphics cards. If you want to add it anyway, make sure to enter the correct amount of memory on your graphics card.
  36.  
  37. Close regedit and run Steam/Fallout.
  38.  
  39. $ WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-fnv wine ~/.wine-fnv/drive_c/Program\ Files/Steam/SteamApps/common/fallout\ new\ vegas/FalloutNV.exe
  40.  
  41. Steam then needs to install the Steam Service Component.
  42.  
  43. Now the launcher will appear and you're finally set to press play. However;
  44.  
  45. Make sure you've switched from Compiz to Metacity (in Gnome/Ubuntu): (or the equivalent in your distro.)
  46.  
  47. ALT+F2 -> "metacity --replace" -> hit Enter.
  48.  
  49. After pressing play, you (well, at least I) see an error dialogue claiming a "serious error" has occured. Never mind that. Just hit Esc once and then click you left mouse button. The game will continue loading.
  50.  
  51. Now, the intro to the game went just fine for me, however when I came to the scene where you see the fan in the ceiling, I had to press Escape and then Continue for the game to continue. You have to do this until you get out of bed. Also, I had no sound when doing this, and no subtitles so I don't really know what was said. From the moment you get out of bed though, the game will be running perfectly. Until you quit. Then it'll crash. However keep a terminal or System Monitor running while you play and just alt-tab to one of those and kill the process.
  52.  
  53. $ sudo killall FalloutNV.exe
  54.  
  55. Optional (?):
  56.  
  57. Steam - Untick friends
  58.  
  59. In Steam, go to View - Settings - Friends and untick all boxes. Go to the In-Game tab and untick "enable steam community in-game".
  60.  
  61. I don't know if this is really necessary since I didn't have to do it to get Civ5 working, but I've done it.
