The game itself starts, downloading mods using the launcher works fine as well.
As soon as the fullscreen loading screen comes up, the Runic crash reporter pops up because "Torchlight II has crashed". The menu music is already playing, but the game itself is stuck on the loading screen.
What does not
Everything apart from starting the game.
What was not tested
Everything that requires the game to actually work.
It's not related to the Steam overlay as I've disabled it in Steam. Apparently the game worked fine in previous Wine versions, so I'll try to use an older version and see if the game still doesn't work.

It appears the game doesn't always shut down properly. For the all versions, this will waste RAM (and possibly CPU time). For the Steam version, this will also prevent cloud syncs, and you will not be able to re-launch Torchlight 2 until the old process is gone.
Use killall Torchlight2.exe2 to force-kill it. In my experience, this has no negative effects (if you do it after trying to shut down the game properly first).
