What works

Installed using Lutris....
don't for some reasons Lutris will stop in the installation of dotnet and vc++
so dotnet downloading from official site and vc++ from winetricks

For some unknown reasons, Lutris will tell you to download Epic Game Launcher after downloading 1.5 GB of game.....
So, I downloaded Epic Game Launcher using Lutris and Installed the game from Launcher

What was not tested

nothing outside the gameplay

Hardware tested


Additional Comments

The main problem seems to be related to inability to play mp4 video

What does not

Openning Credit Video

Character Creation. I had to create characters from other Windows PC to make it work.

Launcher can get freezed, get black, can make problem in case of sign-in. I signed-in in my browser and app connected from there.

Play first mission in windows pc after character creation to make it work.


Workarounds

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= wine uninstaller --remove '{E45D8920-A758-4088-B6C6-31DBB276992E}'
WINEPREFIX= 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= 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 'http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/5/A/95A9616B-7A37-4AF6-BC36-D6EA96C8DAAE/dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe'
WINEPREFIX= wine dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe /q
WINEPREFIX= wineboot --restart
4) Set reported version to Windows Vista/7, and add mscoree.dll override:

WINEPREFIX= winecfg
5) Download and install .NET Framework 4.6.1

wget 'https://download.microsoft.com/download/E/4/1/E4173890-A24A-4936-9FC9-AF930FE3FA40/NDP461-KB3102436-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe'
WINEPREFIX= wine NDP461-KB3102436-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe /q
WINEPREFIX=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.

you need to install gdiplus using winetricks.

you must install dxvk and use esync for decent performance. I spent many hours using different dependencies and what is making an impact and what is not donno....
and you must follow the instructions here https://github.com/lutris/lutr...
good luck you're going to lose your sleep for one night

What was not tested

I just started the game and played 1 mission and after half hour it crashed and stopped....

I can start the game again...but don't know what can create problem due to low play hours. But I think cut scene won't work here any time soon.

Use winetricks for dotnet452
by Garrett Hale on Saturday March 30th 2019, 18:01
You can install dotnet >= 4.5.2 through winetricks since 2017, I'd recommend using it over deleting mono and installing it manually.
Nvidia Driver

Using 396.45 nvidia driver version
Vulkan

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.
