Hey, welcome to the new and improved tutorial.
This tutorial will be easy!

Go to and install the latest Wine development (Might have better fixes). If you want the stable version, go ahead. I am using the development version.

After installing, use the same terminal you used and open wine using this code: WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine winecfg

Next, we need to install the latest winetricks so you can have an easier time doing things. So what you want to do is go to the winetricks github and install it according to its instructions. Very easy. All you have to do is copy and paste. See this link:

Just one more thing you'd want to download since one particular thing keeps bugging. First, go ahead and try to install Riched30 from winetricks. If you don't know how to open it. Just open a terminal and type in winetricks then press enter. It will pop open the GUI.

Go to the download component or dll selection, and attempt to install Riched30. If it doesn't work, you need to download it manually:

After that, go to the home folder. Right click and show hidden files if your distrobution as that feature. If not, just add /.cache.

OK, once you access that folder; click on .winetricks. You will see a riched30 folder. Copy and paste that file you downloaded and replace the old one. Now, try again using winetricks to install that. It will work. Stay on winetricks, we need more things.

Alright. All the hard part is over. Now it's the easy stuff. You need to get Wsh57, VCRun2013, Internet Explorer 8, GDIPLus_WinXP, Ogg, Ole32. You will get a nearly perfect BYOND experience. You are welcome!
Note: If you want a seperate prefix for BYOND in case you play a lot of games with web based stuff that needs winit and the http which ends up breaking BYOND, then just do this

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.byond winecfg

and then make a gaming one:

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.gaming winecfg
Any way to run it on hardware mode?
