Additional Comments

Ran "winetricks dotnet40 d3dcompiler_43 d3dx9_36 d3dx9_39" first. Ran with wine-staging with enabled CSMT and VAAPI in wine-staging. Best to run at 1280x760 size or smaller. Slightly laggy but flawless so far. To play execute: /opt/wine-staging/bin/wine witcher2.exe where witcher2.exe is found in ~/.wine-witcher2/drive_c/Program Files/GOG.com/The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition GPU: Quadro K2100M

Witcher 2 running slow

I installed xact and it made the game a little faster, but the big difference was made in the registry editor, I set "StrictDrawOrdering"="disabled"
