What works

Installer and Launcher works fine after installing dotnet before running it to bypass the built in dotnet installation prompt

What does not

Openning Credit Video
Actual Gameplay

The log shows that the application can plat the video


Before Launching the installer or launcher.
Install dotnet framework with the following instruction : 

1) Ensure that Mono is not installed (use 'wine' for 32-bit prefixes, and 'wine64' for 64-bit):

WINEPREFIX=<wineprefix/dir> wine uninstaller --remove '{E45D8920-A758-4088-B6C6-31DBB276992E}'
WINEPREFIX=<wineprefix/dir> wine64 uninstaller --remove '{E45D8920-A758-4088-B6C6-31DBB276992E}'

2) Set reported version to Windows XP (it will ensure that the
installer of .NET 4.0 will copy some required files like 'mscoree.dll'):

WINEPREFIX=<wineprefix/dir> winecfg

On winecfg dialog, change reported Windows version to Windows XP, and click OK.

3) Download and install .NET Framework 4.0 (higher versions of .NET
will not work on Wine if this version is not previously installed):

wget ''
WINEPREFIX=<wineprefix/dir> wine dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe /q
WINEPREFIX=<wineprefix/dir> wineboot --restart

4) Set reported version to Windows Vista/7, and add mscoree.dll override:

WINEPREFIX=<wineprefix/dir> winecfg

5) Download and install .NET Framework 4.6.1

wget ''
WINEPREFIX=<wineprefix/dir> wine NDP461-KB3102436-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe /q
WINEPREFIX=<wineprefix/dir>wineboot --restart

Make sure to append the "/q" parameter after the installer path to perform a silent installation,
because GUI installation of .NET 4.6.1 still doesn't work (without more workarounds) on Wine.

Use winetricks for dotnet452

You can install dotnet >= 4.5.2 through winetricks since 2017, I'd recommend using it over deleting mono and installing it manually.

Using 396.45 nvidia driver version

Hi, decent performance using Vulkan, however in town performance is bad. During hunts it's mostly fine, 60fps+ (but I usually play this game in low settings).

Need to unmark CSMT on staging settings.
