Personal Notes:


Game seems to start fine, menu is fine, yet the performance in-game is low and i've been encountering a lot of wine crashes (but no graphical glitches).




My System Specs:


- OS: OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.2
- CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k @ 4.2GHz
- RAM: 16GB 1600MHz
- Video: 2GB MSI GTX 670 OC Edition
- Disk Space:   8GB





Known Issues:

  • Game instantly closes after changing certain graphic settings, when you launch it again your desired settings will be applied.
  • In-game performance is low/laggy (even on my GTX 670 which is a gaming GPU), same performance issues with the original dead island in wine. (Performance may increase with tweaked game config files)
  • I encounter wine crashes quite often when playing this game (on the first level), making it basically unplayable to a certain extent. Perhaps these crashes are caused by memory leaks.

Wine crash fix:

If you experience crash issues, go to "Option" "Internet", and turn from "cooperative" to "Single Player", no more crashes then.

Set Game Language:


If you need to change the Language you will need to edit the file located in:

open DI\Data\game.ini 8 lines from the end find this string Locale(“En”) change value “En” to “De” for german, or what ever you want.


Thanks Lisapower for these solutions!




Installation:

  • -Right click the wrapper, show package contents and open wineskin.app.
  • Click on advanced, tools, winetricks, click the 'apps' tab and select 'Steam'. THEN click run!
  • Let steam install.
  • Once its installed, go into wineskin.app within the wrapper, next to the steam launcher, and click on advanced.
  • Change the 'Windows EXE' line to: /Program Files/Steam/steam.exe and then exit wineskin.app.
  • Finally, run the wrapper, steam will launch, sign in to your steam account and download dead island riptide. Once its downloaded, click play!
Now, whenever you launch the wrapper, it will sign into steam and allow you to launch your game via your 'Steam Game Library'.



For 'non steam users':
Please note that I do not (in any way) promote piracy and that I highly recommend you PURCHASE the games that you want to play!

  • Right click the wrapper, show package contents and launch wineskin.app, then select install new software.  
  • Locate the setup.exe file (that is within the .iso you probably downloaded, if you download an ISO, double click it to mount it!) and install the PC files by going through the setup.
  • -- Don't bother installing directx and vcrun if it asks you too. --
  • Then, go back into the contents of the wrapper, go to: drive_c ----> Program Files ----> Dead Island riptide and paste a NoCD crack into the dead island riptide folder. It should ask you to replace some files. When it does, click 'ok'.
The last step is to launch the wrapper!




Works good on the Intel HD3000 16gb Ram and i7. Everything was medium.
just so you know, it works mega.co works just fine in the latest version of Safari

Thanks a lot!
Thanks for the great and very useful feedback! Added your tips to the port description. Now that the wine crashes are out the way, I guess the port isnt WIP anymore!
this is dead island or dead island 2??

dead island 2 (riptide), as it says in the title. it should work with the original dead island though.
Ok so i downloaded a Dead island iso or whatever, mounted it and inside was a setip exe, and some other files i didnt want to mess with
i downloaded your wrapper and opened the wineskin app, choose to install the setup.exe in the iso and than i got an error saying "cant install into cdrive blah blah blah/users/daniel/some file called ssi and a bunch of numbers?
worked for me, but, like you said, low performance and crashes. but the port: 5 stars from me
it worked for me but im getting some lag even on low settings.

Yeah, sadly thats just an issue with dead island running in wine. It happens even with the original dead island game. But then again, if you want to play it that badly.... this wrapper is always an option. Thanks for the feedback.
