DiRT 3 Complete Edition

Note: My user is roman, so adapt your path accordingly.

Code:

Install windows steam via winetricks
Code:
winetricks steam


Load up windows steam via wine and enter your account data + your dirt 3 key.

Force Direct X9 via the config files. Note: It seems wine has not fully yet implemented directx 10.1 / 11 ... So forcing directx9 is the only way to go.

Code:
grep forcedx9 /home/roman/My\ Games/DiRT3/hardwaresettings/hardware_settings_config.xml
      <directx forcedx9="true" />


Run
Code:
wine /home/roman/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Steam/steamapps/common/DiRT\ 3\ Complete\ Edition/dirt3_game.exe


Hardware tested with: i7-3610qm (ivybridge notebook i7), 660m GTX 2GB VRAM, 16GB RAM. ~18-24fps @1920x1080 @ultra settings. Not fully tweaked. graphics seems nice.

[edit 14-nov-2016]

To speed up inital loading time I disabled the autoupdate feature of steam.

Code:
roman@ASUS-G75VW ~ $ cat /home/roman/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Steam/steam.cfg
BootStrapperInhibitAll=enable
ForceOfflineMode=enable
roman@ASUS-G75VW ~ $

I'm not familiar with the location you used to force Direct X9. Was the location a result of the the game DIRT3? Or is it common for Steam?
The reason I ask is that I'm having a problem loading a Lego Batman game in Steam on one computer but it works fine on others.
Thanks
