Additional Comments

Use wine-staging-1.9.23 and enable CSMT.

Create a new prefix :
export WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ffxiv
export WINEARCH=win32
winecfg &

Install game (and accept DirectX)

Start launcher :
wine ffxivboot.exe

Close it and edit ~/.wine-ffxiv/drive_c/users/$USER/My Documents/My Games/FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn/FFXIV_BOOT.CFG

Change BrowserType 0 to BrowserType 2 (or the launcher stay blank)

Start launcher again

Download & Start game

Close the window then edit ~/.wine-ffxiv/drive_c/users/$USER/My Documents/My Games/FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn /FFXIV.cfg

Change CutsceneMovieOpening 0 to CutsceneMovieOpening 1

If screen game is flickering, change Gamma value in settings. It should fix it.

Perfs seems same at low or high graphics settings. It's hard (impossible ?) to get 60fps+ but it's really playable at 30fps+.

No crash, no freeze, no dll override needed.

No joy

So, after much fighting and gnashing of teeth I finally get the launcher to run, I log in and it stalls at the connect to the data center screen. So I'm stuck in loading screen heck.
Anyone have any idea if I would've missed something obvious that would stall it out there?
I'm using fedora 23 and wine-1.9.8 (Staging).

Anyway to fix the graphics?

I've finally got the game up and running and can actually log in, but serious graphical issues render the game virtually unplayable. The the following video demonstrates the issue:

Does anyone know how to fix this?
