How do I install the Glide Wrapper on Diablo 2 with PlayOnLinux?

by Tomás Santiago González   Last Updated November 02, 2017 18:14 PM

I just installed Diablo 2 via PlayOnLinux in my Netbook and now I would like to know how to make the Glide Wrapper work. I also install 1.14d patch so I can play on BattleNet, but this patch disabled the option for the game to automatically select the Glide wrapper. I know that in Windows there's is a runaround for this which is to add the parameter -3dfx in the properties of the D2 shortcut, but I don't know how to do this in PlayOnLinux nor do I know if it's the correct way.

So please can somebody tell me what to do?

I'm not sure how specifically this applies to Diablo or your patch, but as for adding parameters, two ways come to mind:


  1. Click "Configure" in the upper right.
  2. Select the appropriate shortcut from the list on the left of the window that appears.
  3. Put -3dfx in the "arguments" box on the "General" tab.


  1. Click "Configure" in the upper right.
  2. Go to the "Miscellaneous" tab.
  3. "Open a Shell"
  4. Find and launch your executable adding your arguments as desired.

The second method is the one I personally seem to have more success with, but it is a bit harder to initially nail down how exactly to launch your executable.
