What works

Installed using Lutris script listed below.

Loading Launcher worked and play button was visible but did nothing.

I changed runner to lutris-4.21-x86_64 and then re-launched, everything works perfectly fine now and the file download progress bar is now displayed at the bottom. The play button was greyed out this time as expected until the downloading progress was complete.

Launching the game works and performance seems to be on par with Windows.

Played through 1 quest and flying to different world all working with no issues.

What does not

Does not run out of the box.


Lutris script contains additional workarounds/dependancies but I needed to change Wine runner version to lutris-4.21 as described.

What was not tested

Flashpoints, grouping with other players and much of end-game content not tested.
