What works


What does not

*Green screen appears when loading the game and in the first intro.

*Terrible graphic glitches prevent the game from being playable (I tried installing vcredist, both X86 and X64, which didn't help).


What was not tested

Tested just a little bit of the game (intro+ a little bit of driving) because of how unplayable it is.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

It seems to be, in my opinion, something specifically with this wine version, which is absolutely far from perfect (it is a staging version, of course, so this bug is probably temporary if it's wine-related), but maybe it has something to do with Mojave (which is awful with wine: the wine shortcut in the apps, is not responding. Not only with Staging version btw, but with the Stable one too). I really hope this (and all of these Wine& Mojave problems) will be solved soon, since it is quite sad to see how wine is not as useful in Mojave as it is usually is.
