I've put together a Wine wrapper for S2: Silent Storm Gold Edition, 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/silent_storm

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

silent_storm_wine.tar.xz

Updated 2020/01/19: Updated to Proton 4.11-12.

The wrapper uses Proton 4.11-12. 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

To provide widescreen support for S2 this wrapper includes the Universal Resolution Changer created by Racer_S (http://www.tocaedit.com), although it is not enabled by default due to some issues it causes (it's left to the user to decide if these are worth putting up with) - more information is in the release notes.

I've only played the beginning of the game but it seems to run great so far. The background fade effect that's used when menus/tutorial popups etc. are presented does not work properly on AMD graphics cards though (at least with the open drivers - I did not test with the proprietary drivers). 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.
