I've put together a Wine wrapper for Jade Empire, allowing it to be played on Linux almost like a native game & with no Wine knowledge required.

Simply run the build script to create the wrapper. If the installer files are not alongside the wrapper build files then the path to them will need to be specified either by passing it as an argument to the build script with -respath="<path>" or by setting an environment variable named WINEWRAP_RESPATH containing it. You can change the path to build the wrapper in and the name of the wrapper directory with the -buildpath= and -dirname= arguments. The build path can also be set with the WINEWRAP_BUILDPATH environment variable.

The output will be a directory containing the game set up within a preconfigured Wine prefix, along with its own copy of Wine, extracted game icons, documentation, and start script(s). From there simply run the start script to play. The start script also includes options for creating a shortcut, configuring the wrapper etc.

(to uninstall simply delete the game directory and any shortcuts you created, and the game's user data directory in ~/.local/share if you don't want to keep your saves & settings)

User data is stored under ~/.local/share/jade_empire

Full details are in the readme.txt and release notes. Here is the download link:

The wrapper uses Wine 6.0. Wine and Winetricks will be downloaded automatically if not present; to avoid redownloading for other scripts the downloaded Wine package will be stored in ~/.cache/winewrap

This wrapper is far from fully tested but this game worked well when I previously tested it in Wine, so I don't expect that there will be any major issues. The stutter fix is not enabled as (AFAIK) that issue does not affect Wine, but in case it needs to be enabled (let me know if it does & I'll enable it by default) you only need to open winecfg and add an override for d3d9 (native, builtin). If anyone runs into any problems then post in this thread, Adamhm's Linux Wine Wrappers - News, FAQ &amp; Discussion and/or The "Judas&trade; does this run in Wine" thread v1.173.

Thank you so much for this! For me, the script still worked like a charm, although I am using it five years later.

Contrary to your expectations, I did have to add the override for d3d9 in order to fix the stuttering, though (on Linux Mint 19.1 with nvidia-driver-515 on a GeForce GTX 1060). Just posting this information here for future users of your script.
