The List of games in the POL program has Borderlands. Freaking out, (never gotten it to work with wine before) I instantly tried to click it.

It would not install, because it required a wine version 1.2.2-Mousepatch.
The correct spelling has a capital P, as follows: 1.2.2-MousePatch

All i did was take the script from the website and change the required version.

Actually, I also fixed English grammar and some minor text issues. (not creating new line, text runs off the side.)

I also removed the signed key at the bottom.

This is my first post, and the actual script is credit to the original author. I do not accept full credit.

I tried it today and cant get it to load. It installed correctly but when I try to run it nothing happens. Any way I can try to troubleshoot it some more?
