shmerl: That's weird. Are you using UEFI?

Themken: NOT using UEFI since it was not invented when my laptop was made back in 2007. It might be that kernel expected UEFI and either has no support for BIOS or needed some of those whatever-they-are-called looks like this: -option B
I see. Then try restoring BIOS grub using a live image. There are guides for that.

This is what I thought of doing but wanted to ask if anyone knew of any other method since I cannot seem to find my live stick. A big thanks for that nice guide though :-)

I will buy something newer this year.

Yeah, regular BIOS uses special boot record on the drive, so fixing it is harder manually. You can use any storage for live image, even external hard drive would work.

I usually use SystemRescueCD Gentoo image for such stuff.

"We feel that it's your right, as our customer, to be informed about any traces of the Wine wrapper on Linux games."

Have the Wine Labe been removedl?

Can't find it on for example Baldur's Gate I and II: Enhanced Editions, but I am positive it was there when I bought the game:
"Notice: The Linux version comes with a 32-bit binary only. This is a Wine game and requires your local Wine package in order to play." Source: aur.archlinux.org/packages/gog-baldurs-gate-enhanced-edition

Baldur's Gate EE games aren't using Wine. For instance Flatout 2 is, and GOG list it in the Linux system requirements tab: https://www.gog.com/game/flatout_2

Thanks!
I am certain that it read:
"Notice: The Linux version comes with a 32-bit binary only. This is a Wine game and requires your local Wine package in order to play."
when I bought the game during Christmas 2017. See here for example.

When I installed the listed required dependencies, it did not work without Wine. Turns out it does work without Wine, however, some of Wines dependencies are needed. They are probably listed in the requirements, but I must have missed them, since they are in different packages on Arch.

I am going to try to find out which ones are needed, thanks again!

If you have difficulties installing and running Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition on Arch Linux, you might want to give a try to this alternative installation method, with automatic dependencies handling:
[./play.it] Install the Baldur's Gate games on Linux
This is a warning to all Linux users looking to buy Pathfinder: Kingmaker, first of all let me start with the pre-order, the game was available as a pre-order for Win/Mac/Linux however since release (25th September) till today (12th November), these pre-order bonuses are unavailable for Linux users - False advertising? Pretty much so.

Secondly their 1st post-release DLC called Bloody Mess (feel free to insert pun), is also not available to Linux users.

I've already tried:

1) Talking to GOG (About the pre-order) - They said it's up to the developer/publisher to provide - So according to GOG it's ok to advertise a game with something and releasing it without it. So much for the curation which is apparently like every wednesday's national lottery.

2) Notified the devs via Email and Steam, I've been polite the whole time. All I got was a silent slap in the face, aka no response or acknowledgement at all.

So for the past and a half month I've been sitting with a game in my library, with less content than I paid for and even more less content after the release. Honestly if I could get a refund for it, even wallet credits, I would nuke that shameful game off my hard disk and library.
