I've put together a Wine wrapper for Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD, 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/oddworld_strangers_wrath

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

oddworld_strangers_wrath_wine.tar.xz

Updated 2019/11/07: Updated winewrap.shlib.

The wrapper uses Wine 4.0. 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

Note that at present there are rendering issues with this game on AMD & Intel GPUs, although it is is still playable, and from my testing so far it appears to work perfectly on systems with Nvidia GPUs using the closed drivers (AMD's closed drivers were not tested).

If anyone encounters any other 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.

Thanks for the prompt update of your wrapper but I am running into an issue wrapping/running the game. The output from the wrapper is and the output from running the game is [url=https://pastebin.com/LzR5UsWC/]here.

I just bought this game when they updated the installer two days ago, bad luck on my part lol. I've been using your wrapper for Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition with amazing success. Your work is greatly appreciated!

Your system is missing bc, which is causing the innoextract version check to misbehave, resulting in it using your system's version of innoextract despite it being outdated and unable to handle GOG's new installers. Installing bc should fix it :)
Yup that worked perfectly. Thanks
Came here to say thanks! Game looks and plays awesome!

I use Lubuntu 16.04, simply followed the guide and everything works as it should : ]
