Full version of Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood (FFXIV 4.0)
Works great after setting up DXVK however the launcher will give you problems and not let you use Directx 11 if your using DXVK without a simple work around explained in point 4 of the workarounds section. Also controllers should work just fine, the Logitech F310 is confirmed working since that's what I've been using. If for some reason the game does not let you calibrate the Logitech F310 make sure the back switch is set on the D for Direct Input mode. Worst case scenario follow this guide to get the F310 controller set up http://nomoreterminals.blogspo... and then you should be good to go.
What does not
1.You might have some issues with audio (crackling sound)
2.Launcher had some issues running
3.Opening cutscene would not load
4.Issue getting Directx11 to be usable in the launcher, the launcher would default to Directx9 when trying to use DXVK.
1.For the audio crackling install xact with winetricks, to my knowledge you only really need xaudio2 (0-9) I haven't used the other overrides that are setup with xact.
2.When you first install the game, the launcher will not want to load properly, to fix it all you have to do is change the browser type to 2 in the boot config file for the game.
3.The opening cutscene will not want to load so you'll have to change the cutscene movie opening value from 0 to 1
4.For the launcher not letting you setup Directx 11 when using DXVK, you'll have to go to the applications tab in winecfg and add ffxivlauncher.exe. Then add overrides for dxgi and d3d11 and make sure they are set to built in. In the actual game you'll have your dxgi and d3d11 overrides set to native along with the xaudio2(0-9) overrides set to native,builtin. Lastly if your using staging make sure CSMT is off.
What was not tested
I've been playing with it and it's had no issues so far with minor fps drops sometimes.
The game seems to run fine, seems to roughly have a 15% decrease in performance when compared to running it on Windows if your using DXVK but all things considered that's not too bad. Lowering certain quality settings can help a bit of course, the high laptop or standard desktop presets are a good start if your unsure about what to tweak as it will vary by system. I was able to hit 60 fps on my system with some minor fps drops here and there with the high laptop settings, so making some minor tweaks to that preset really helped since my main goal was to just have the game run at 60 fps. If your system is a beast though you won't have to worry about messing with the presets and can just max it out though lol.

Introductory video still does not run (without install quartz with winetricks) and needs to be disabled to access the game.
DirectX11 does not work (well) yet, so DirectX9 needs to be selected in config file and/or launcher.
Game does not always run well in 64 bit prefix.
Create a new 32-bit WINEPREFIX,
install winetricks xact
