Additional Comments

Game do not run out of the box (black screen and crash), but this is a problem very common also between windows users (that's why I rating it as platinum).

I try some old wine version without found any working version, then I'm pretty sure this is not a regression's or related to wine itself but rather configuration related problem.

I try many workarounds suggested by windows user, that have worked for me is get "prototype2engine.dll", "steam_api.dll", "steamclient.dll" and "skidrow.ini" file from the web and put it in game directory overwriting existing files to get game run out of steam.

This workaround do not overwrite language settings in regedit, so you can play prototype in your native language.

Game have some performance problem, plain wine run it at 30fps average but sometimes dropping to 20-22 making it hardly playable. Using dxvk-d9vk game run 50-60fps average and never dropping under 30fps.
