Additional Comments

Arma 3 has experimental native ports, but these do not work with multiplayer.

Arma 3 may work better with Proton, but that has not been tested here.

A good write-up on ARMA

Thought this was a good write-up with ARMA using WINE, regardless of the DXVK usage.

I think the user just needs to explicitly declare within the topic or head paragraph he/she used third part DXVK instead of vanilla wine. Might also want to instruct or provide a pointer telling other users how to install the DXVK third party tool.

Revoking the entire attempted write-up, in my opinion, was a little overbearing.

This is WineHQ's policy, not mine. The test result can mention that DXVK works, but the bulk of the report (and rating) must discuss what happens with vanilla Wine.

Policies and procedures are good, until they sequester good experiences.

I think a lot of people would like to hear other others' success.

On the flip, I'm not a huge fan of all these newer Wayland, Rust, Python technologies. I'm more of a fan of the Unix policy, keep it simple policy.

A better method would be to flag the reviews as using third party tools, rather than deleting/hiding good results.

I think the policy is really meant to prevent bug reports from being submitted when using third party tools and/or to promote open source. Writing a review versus submitting an actual bug report are two separate actions. Shrugs.
