It seems to outperform Windows when the workaround is in use. Otherwise, the performance is generally acceptable using the default Direct3D renderer bundled with Wine save for the missing textures.

This game performs best with DXVK, which is a Vulkan-based Direct3D implementation to replace the default bundled with Wine.
Vulkan 1.1 support is required for the current version of DXVK. Older graphics drivers (e.g. nvidia-390) that only support Vulkan 1.0 will need to use DXVK 1.5.1 or earlier.
Many current operating systems already contain the necessary packages to run DXVK: no additional installations are required other than the most up-to-date drivers for your graphics card (tested with a fresh installation of Ubuntu 20.04).
