I am trying to get Dark Injection working within Lutris, which is a wine front end to run windows programs in Linux. Spore itself works fine, the mod itself works fine if installed through a VM and copying over to Linux, but the launcher doesn't work. So, I'm at this weird halfway point where it's working, but demanding I start the game through the launcher, which doesn't want to run.

What are the primary components the launcher needs to function?

No, it actually doesn't work at all if copied over from a VM. You have to install DI to use it.

Ironically, I've been working on tackling this exact problem of Linux compatibility for a while now, with surprising amounts of success. Only time will tell if I can make anything viable of it... (no promises)
