Manual install

What I currently do is create the prefix using POL, point Lutris to this prefix using “Add installed game”, then run winetricks and setup from Lutris. Is there a way to get Lutris to create the prefix?

To answer my own question, yes Lutris can create a prefix.

  1. Select the game in the library and right click, choose “Add installed game”
  2. Select Browse “Wine prefix”, create or select a folder and save
  3. Right click on game and select “Winetricks”, the prefix will be automatically created, now install any additional libraries needed
  4. Right click on game and select “Run exe in wine prefix”, select the game’s setup exe
  5. Right click on game and select “Configure”, point Lutris to installed game exe
