Game is working with minor stuttering at the beginning of each new case. Added screen resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels.
What does not
Game throws an .NET Framework 3.5 error ("turn on or off").
I used PlayOnLinux for setting up the game. Create a new 32-bit environment using Wine 5.5-staging. Set the OS version to Windows XP. Install the game. Uninstall Wine mono and manually install dotnet35sp1, Social Club and DirextX9 using the provided files, all this via the uninstaller known from winetricks.
In my case I also wanted to use a screen resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels. A convenient solution therefore is offered by Flawless Widescreen, just search for it if wanted. Install the program in the game prefix, start it and follow the instructions for LA Noire.
What was not tested
Played the first few cases and hunted down some criminal scum by now. Did not encounter any problems so far.
