What does not
Launch hangs in a black screen but eventually gets to the menu. Add the following parameters to DayZ launch options in steam to prevent intro and splash: -nosplash -nointro -world=empty Terrible mouse bug. The mouse leaves the screen causing the view to stop in one direction. The solution is to set Mouse Warp Override to forced. Mouse works normal as expected, once forced. Flickering of models, textures, sprites, shadows, lighting. Fixed with some tweaking/lowering of video settings e.g. render resolution and anti-aliasing. Grass textures appear and disappear. Foliage textures change constantly.
What was not tested
Other possible configurations or patched versions of wine.
Video and mouse error prevent playability. Once configured, the game maybe works. Don't expect the best quality graphics; unclear what specifically fixes flickering.

- Setting 'mouseSmoothing=0;' int the user.DayZProfile file helps a lot!
- If you wonder why your torch is pointing slightly to the left of you r char, press 'space' ;-).
2017-01-04 Admin note: BattleEye fails to start. See bug list. One can get around this by renaming DayZ.exe as DayZ_BE.exe. However, the the game will crash shortly after loading. If it doesn't crash, then one may not find a non-BattleEye server on which to play.
