What works

Downloading, installation and patching all work under wine. I created a character on early access weekend and played through the Tokyo disaster intro scene. All cutscenes so far have worked.

My settings:

d3dx9 and d3dx9_43 installed in a new prefix using winetricks.

d3dx9_43 set to builtin under Winecfg > Libraries. The game detected directx after this and installed properly. I got a message that my video driver was too old, but the game worked anyway.

Virtual desktop emulation.

What does not

No video in fullscreen, only audio if virtual desktop is not emulated. Using windowed mode, the game freezes and crashes randomly.

The game ran smoothly through the intro scene, but slowed to a crawl once I entered populated areas. I've tried ddr=opengl, glsl=disabled and a few other wine settings to no avail. 


What was not tested

Anything beyond the first hour after character creation.
