What works

Game loads and is playable using wine-2.15 (Staging) Played the first two chapters (Prologue & Lockdown). Running the benchmark also works.

What does not

1) When you loot an item, the screen (environment) goes dark and you can't see or its very dark and hard to see your environment for about 5 seconds. This doesn't happen if you run it from Windows. This also happens when you use Focus button when you exit Focus.

2) Journal menu is very dark and missing details. 

3) FPS is very low (average less then 30 frames a second). When running from Windows, FPS is 60 frames a second. Need to set the quality  to Low to get close to 30 FPS, where as in Windows when using Medium quality the game will get 60 FPS.

4) Game crashes/hangs sometimes on exit.

Workarounds

1) Using winetricks installed:

2) Enabled CSMT & VAAPI in winecfg under Staging tab

3) Left StrictDrawOrdering disabled.

4) In ThiefGame\Config\ThiefEngine.ini set PoolSize to VRAM * 600 (6GB = 3600) 

5) 32-bit version runs faster then 64-bit version in Fullscreen Exclusive mode

6) Disabled all options except FXAA which didn't seem to hurt FPS undering benchmark testing

7) Texture & Shadow Quality set to Low. SSAA set to Off. 

8) Vsync disabled

What was not tested

Other chapters in the game. 5 seconds of screen darkness when looting becomes annoying.
