This is a little resource/discussion area for getting Diablo 3 running in Wine. My system is:
Ubuntu 12.04 3.2.0-24-generic x86_64 GNU/Linux

and D3 runs pretty well.

First of all, wine doesnt work with D3 right out of the box. You need to either patch it or get a pre-compiled version. Ubuntu users are lucky, you can just add this repository using:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:cheako/packages4diabloiii
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wine1.5

You'll also need to install vcrun2008 through winetricks, and then you're done. For everyone else, you'll have to check out the Wine source code and apply patches found here. Good luck with that, it's kind of a pain in the ass. Applying patches and compiling from source are not things that I want to get into here, as I'll be answering questions all night. I'll assume you know how to do that, you're a linux user. Come on.

Anyway, the good news is that once you've patched/installed the custom version of wine, things are peachy. Just launch the game with
wine Diablo\ III.exe -launch

as the launcher doesn't always work.

As an aside, has anyone managed to get D3Advanced running in Wine? The Mono2.8 implementation that wine uses for .NET 4.0 crashes with the following:
Unhandled Exception: System.EntryPointNotFoundException: 279

It would be helpful to figure this out. Enough rambling. Discuss!

It doesn't work very well for me. I can't change the resolution, and lots of the graphics are distorted - it's also really laggy. I assume this is driver related?
