What works

The game works just fine - I've been playing it for a while with a solid 30-40 fps with a i5-4430 and a GIGABYTE GTX 1050 Ti

What does not

Water doesn't render for NVIDIA GPU's (confirmed by me)


Mentioned in current AppDB page - "Disable "nvcuda" and "nvencodeapi64" in your winecfg" and works for me wonderfully!

What was not tested

playtime is only 20 hours, further game play not tested but should work.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
