Load the following VC++ libraries through winetricks:
Download and install Fortnite through Launcher.
If it fails to launch, set dsound.dll to Builtin then Native in winecfg
Do NOT USE gallium nine builds, verified working on standard wine 2.13-staging. Gallium builds will create weird glitches with weapons that have FX skins on them, and shadows/shading is terribly broken.
Tested working with CSMT enabled on Nvidia closed source drivers. Run as 64 bit.
