Sam B, Logan Carter, Xian Mei, and Purna, all playable protagonists from the first game, destroy the carrier. The team are forced to look for safety and reach the nearby island of Palanoi, finding that the island has also been infected, and the team begin a fight for survival; also joined by new protagonist John Morgan

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!


  • -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!

hey guys i'm using this version of Dead Island:
"Dead Island Riptide PC full game ^^nosTEAM^^"

and whenever i try to run the .exe for installing i get a "deficiency in wine" error.
i dont know what to do :(
anybody who can help?
on the steam setup i click next at the end user license agreement and it freezes!
Where do i find the executable ? Im using Yosemite, maybe thats why, but I'm a non steam user, so when I choose setup executable, where do i find the .exe or at least the .setup ?
guys who can tell me why i just can't download any dmg files of ports from MEGA ??
Hi all,
I made my own wrapper, with the cd.
Now I didn't had a problem the first time I ran the game.

After that I close it, it starts whining about Steam is required to run this game.

same problem

If I remove the file: C:\Program Files\Steam\appcache\appoinfo.vdf
The problem is solved, so for that I could workaround it with a .bat file, to first remove it, and then open game.

However it looks like it does not save my game anymore!

dead island 2 (riptide), as it says in the title. it should work with the original dead island though.

Its not dead island 2! dead island 2 is not even out yet. this is a prequel . I think : )
I know this is an old thread, but did anyone have any luck playing co-op without Steam? I cannot for the life of me get a LAN to work, even when using Hamachi
