I tried to play with Fable 3 bought from steam (but still heavily rely on xlive/GFWL). I managed to launch it using PlayOnLinux testing installer with use : 
- Vanilla wine 1.3.23 (I tried with 1.3.25 too)
- Xliveless dll from http://timeslip.users.sourceforge.net/
- Direct launch mode from Fable3.exe thx to xliveless dll (because Fable3Launcher.exe crash with wine)

The game launch, I can see MS and Lionhead movies and then a black screen with "Estimating performances..." and it stay like this forever...If I try to use config files from a windows install, there is just a black screen after movies. Either way, no sound emmited, no wine/game error output, nothing, it just loop forever.

I also tried to build wine 1.3.23/1.2.24/1.3.25 with xliveless patch here : http://joe.paco-net.ch/xlivelesswine.patch but when I apply it I always have the same thing : 


patch -p1 < xlivelesswine.patch
patching file configure.ac
Hunk #1 succeeded at 2338 (offset -50 lines).
patching file dlls/xlive/Makefile.in
patching file dlls/xlive/main.c
patch: **** malformed patch at line 577: diff --git a/dlls/xlive/xlive.spec b/dlls/xlive/xlive.spec

So I wasn't able to try Fable 3 with this patch.

If someone know how to fix black screen issue or to fix patch error it could be nice :)
