Sound

Modding

What does not

With Wine's implementation of Direct3D (WineD3D), the graphics performance is quite bad and there are many bizarre graphical glitches on screen.

Workarounds

Install DXVK to use in place of WineD3D and everything works properly and framerate goes way up.

winetricks dxvk

-or-

Just use Lutris to install it.

What was not tested

Long gameplay.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source
