First off, Path of Exile version 2.4.2 breaks on Wine 1.9.21 and above with Direct3D errors. Run on 1.9.20 or below, tested on 1.9.16, 1.9.18 and 1.9.20. On 1.9.20, this game runs smoothly at an almost stable 60fps in 1920x1200 in windowed fullscreen on the following hardware: Intel i3 4170 @ 3.7GHz 8GB Ram NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750Ti RUNNING THE GAME: The key to removing microstutters during gameplay is to mess with the garbage collector with the -gc flag, per https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/8980/page/166 I run the game using the following, with great success. WINEDEBUG=fixme-all wine PathOfExile.exe -gc 100 This causes one major problem: the game will continue to hog memory until graphics and sound errors occur, and eventually the game crashes. However, since I can get smooth gameplay for 3-5 hours before this happens, I just restart the game every so often to avoid it. Note that this removes many of the effect and sound based stutters and FPS drops, such as a large amount of enemies shattering at once, opening lockboxes etc. HOW TO GET THERE: INSTALLATION: Works fine, although it takes a bit long to allocate space. WINETRICKS: winetricks glsl=disable winetricks vcrun2010 usp10 GAME SETTINGS: in "/home/$USER/My Games/Path of Exile/production_Config.ini" The important settings are: [GENERAL] engine_multithreading_mode=disabled [DISPLAY] shadow_type=no_shadows post_processing=false texture_filtering=1 antialias_mode=0 screen_shake=false texture_quality=1 Special mentions i Crank the quality down. They are listed more or less in order of how badly they ruin the framerate, from most to least.
