What works

Game Menu, all in-game options, join servers, microphone, sound, chat, first person, Character customization.

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.

Additional Comments

Video and mouse error prevent playability. Once configured, the game maybe works. Don't expect the best quality graphics; unclear what specifically fixes flickering.

HowTo / Notes

Note
2015-02-11 Admin note: the following tips were extracted from a user comment made in 2014 and may not be relevant to current Wine.
- I eliminated most of the graphical flickering by setting Anti-aliasing to the lowest mode above 'disabled'.

- 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' ;-).

Note

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.
