I've put together a Wine wrapper for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, 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/vtm_bloodlines

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

vtmb_wine.tar.xz

Updated 2019/09/14: 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

If anyone encounters 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.

Hi,

Thanks you for your work, it works perfectly !

Just a question, do you know how to change language ?
No gui available, I don't know where to select subtitle language

I search in config files here : ~/.local/share/vtm_bloodlines but no success

EDIT : To play with desired language, select it in you gog library before download VTMB installer. Then, use vtmb_wine script :)
EDIT 2 : Don't forget to update sha256sum value and installer name in var WRAP_FILES (vtmb_wine.sh line23)

Unfortunately supporting multiple languages isn't something I can do right now due to the extra workload and disk space that would be required to support & maintain them. I posted about this in more detail here

This isn't guaranteed to work though, as GOG's installers are not consistently packaged & often vary even between updates.
Thank you for your explanations, I understand
