Steam games for windows that works with Wine on Linux

I frequently test and install games that are in my steam library through wine.
I run wine-staging on debian testing.

I have compiled a list of those who worked, and those that did not, I have included a steam link to each game
so that you easily can go buy\view them.
I update with new games frequently, I tag them with a date too so that you see when it was last updated easily.
I figured I might as well post it here as well, maybe someone finds it useful.

Graviteam Tactics: Operation Star

  1. I’ve got Victoria 2 (steam version) to work on my Arch Linux x64.
    Create a new 32 bit wine prefix and install the game via Steam.

    Then install windows packages
    WINEPREFIX=~/your-prefix-name winetricks -q d3dx9 d3dxof directmusic dotnet20 devenum quartz wmp9
    Run the game
    WINEPREFIX=~/you-prefix-name/ wine /path/to/steam/install/Steam.exe -applaunch 42960

      Thank you for this information.
      I also saw this on reddit, but I have not tried it yet.
      But great that you commented this.

      I was able to make it run now.
      I have moved the game over to the ‘working’ list.
      Thanks for the info and help.

  2. Also did you get Panzer corps working with all features? Any tutorial on this site would be really appreciated.
