    What is the SetKey? It looks like I have missed something to do when installed Unity. However it runs good for me, except(because of linux and wine limitations) in DX9.0 mode although my GPU supports DX11.0. I will try 32-bit install, of course!;)

    Probably something related to input and your keyboard.
    Don't worry about that for now... if you can confirm it runs in a 32-bit virtual drive, then those errors will probably go away

    I tried to download one 32-bit file, but it doesn't require installation. It appears to run, but... I tested only intro in plane and nothing happens when I press ESC- is it supposed to be like that? And the window that opens at beginning looks like Unity one:D

    What file did you download?

    I meant 32-bit Wine:
    • Launch PlayOnLinux
    • Click Tools
    • Click Wine Manager
    • Select Wine 1.7.41 in 32-bit
    • Click the right-arrow to download
    When its done, close the Wine Manager

    Now click Install
    Click "install a non-listed program" at the bottom
    Follow the steps and make sure to select 32-bit virtual drive

    Install the game and then lets see if it launches

    since you found an installer, I suggest using that.
    Otherwise, you have to set up PlayOnLinux a bit different.

    Good news:
    I suceeded to run it. Here is a video:

    Hope you like that it runs:
    Simple to install:
    Download the .exe setup for 32-bit
    Open Play On Linux
    Press Tools -> Manage Wine Versions
    Install latest Wine(You shall install it for both versions otherwise it doesn't show up- that's what I discovered).
    Press install
    On bottom left: Install a non-listed program
    Choose- Use another version of Wine
    Select the one you installed
    Choose to make a 32-bit wine prefix
    Wait for the POL to make a virtual drive
    Click on Browse and choose your installer
    Follow installation steps
    make shortcut for the Stranded_Deep_x64.exe or whatever you get that looks like matching game run file.
    Run the shortcut and enjoy playing;)

    P.S. Lower GPU than mine will obiouvsly not work or lag a lot:(

    That is more-or-less the way I do all of my game tests.
    Which packages did you have to install?

    None- it runs without any additional packages on it- just by itself;)

    Awesome! Congrats! :cool:
    So any other games you want to test/play, just try those steps in PlayOnLinux and most direct X 9 games will work.... for the most part.
