Divinity II Directors Cut
wmp & codecs

I've spent several hours over 3 days messing with this manual installation.
So far it installs fine with Steam and opens the launch screen perfectly, but that is as far as I can get.
It will crash immediately after that. I found that the intro videos are wmv movies and think that is my culprit for the crashing.
Even with wmp9 and wmp10 along with wmpcodecs installed, it still crashes.
By the way, Linux can play the videos just fine, but wmp can not in the virtual drive.
It just seems like some dependencies are missing.
I really want it to work and WineHQ's shows a little promise, but still nothing in the "platinum" range.
What sucks is there isn't a whole lot of information online. Even in WineHQ's there are not a lot of posts. So it seems there are not a lot of gamers trying Divinity II in Linux.
Mint 14 32-bit
GeForce 550 Ti
Have not tried:
I don't have the whole debug output right now, but will post it tonight
I am seeing a lot of ntdll errors
[code]ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x785b7428 "?" wait timed out in thread 002b, blocked by 0000, retrying (60 sec)[/code]
And some wininet quartz errors

Most of the error is for Steam, but when I actually launch the game the errors at the bottom output and the game crashes.
