  1. Make your new prefix
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix winecfg

A configuration window comes up, close it.

  1. Install the prerequisite libraries that Grimoire needs.
env WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix winetricks directmusic gmdls

Watchout for errors. Sometimes the servers can't be found, and you'll have to download the files winetricks wants through google and place them in ~/.cache/winetricks/<libraryname> and rerun the command to install them.

  1. Install the Windows version of steam.
env WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix winetricks steam

Steam login window comes up, set it up, install Grimoire. Now bask in the golden glow, like it's 1992.

To run Grimoire in the future you have to define the path to steam and run it through wine and launch Grimoire.

WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix wine "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe"

And if you're a really smart cookie. You'll make a bash script that does it for you and launches Grimoire. And have it ready on your desktop.

export WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix
$WINE "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 650670

`chmod +x` to make the script executable or set it executable in properties.
