What works

Generally, playing the game on highest settings with a joypad works very good.
Started a career, played to ~30% completion and tested the following:

  • Navigating through the menus
  • Races: Sprint, Curcuit, Drift, Speed trap, and others.
    • Accepted from (main) menu, free roam or spontaneous duels
  • Tuning and especially preview of the optics
  • Changing key bindings¹, video, audio and other settings
  • Video performance: Generally 50-60 fps


    • Highest settings
    • Working VFX, motion blur when speeding

Additional Comments

Tested on AMD Radeon RX580 with amdgpu, Mesa 18.2.6, kernel 4.18.20. Running KDE Plasma 5.14.3 and vanilla Wine 3.21-staging, no DLL overrides.

¹: There was a small incompatibility in Wine with my Joystick, a Cyborg V3 Rumble Pad. Wine creates two joystick configs for it - js and event. Pressing the R2 button would constantly pause the game if it used event. Fixed it by setting a key config for the js controller only, leaving event as it was.

On KDE, two things should be done:

  1. Disable compositing for the game window, otherwise you get 10-15 fps.
  2. Enable virtual desktop 1280x1024, otherwise all your desktop icons will be "compressed" into a 1280x1024 area when you leave the game.
