What works

Everything (with workarounds)

What does not

Graphics are glitchy without CSMT.

Mouse movement controls are bound inside a box unless I choose to run the game in a window.

Sometimes, after long play sessions, the audio will start crackling. Restarting the game temporarily solves this.

I suspect some surfaces might not render perfectly, because sometimes glass is very hard to see. Missing reflections perhaps?


CSMT enabled

Set the game to run in a bordered window

Sometimes during long play sessions the game needs a restart to stop the audio from crackling

What was not tested

Full play-through not tested, but I have been playing for more than 7 hours and no issues except for those mentioned in this report.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

I'm running this on Wayland (technically xwayland) and suspect the mouse issues could be related to that, but I can't confirm that because X is currently broken on my distro and won't run at all.

Performance is alright at medium graphics 1440p. Gets a bit choppy on high, so I prefer medium.

Not seeing the flickering on the in-game computer screens that previous reports have mentioned.

I find the game quite enjoyable on Wine once I found the necessary workarounds. Probably one of very few dx11 titles I can say that about.
