I have it downloaded and installed but when i go to launch the game it fails immediately and when i try using WINE it just says there is no windows program associated to launch it :/ any help getting it to work? i've seen people playing it on linux im on Mint 17 cinnamon 64 bit.

ok i dont use debian based distros, i use Gentoo but this should help you

first of all NEVER install without specifying a WINEARCH or WINEPREFIX.

I also have a directory in my ~ called wine where I install all wine apps into (thats wine not dot wine).  I copy installers into here and issue the following commands before running (exaple given is for fallen earth)

 

from a bash shell type

 

WINEARCH=win32

WINEPREFIX=/home/MY_USER_NAME/wine/FE

wine FallenEarth_GamersFirst_LIVE!_Setup_EN.exe

 

I then create a script to launch the game, i never click an icon to launch any wine games as the output in the console I launch from gives useful cluse when i encounter problems.  For fallen earth I have a script in /home/me/wine as follows...

 

export WINEARCH=win32
export WINEPREFIX=/home/mark4/wine/FE
wine FE/drive_c/Program\ Files/GamersFirst/Fallen\ Earth/FEUpdater.exe
 

i save this to a file called fe.sh

to launch the game i cd into wine and type ./fe.sh

 

installing into a prefix specified in all capitals gives me the ability to type ./fe<tab> and thers no conflict between fe/ and fe.sh
