What works

Regular gameplay.

What does not

Without 'vcrun2017' and 'dxvk', the game fails to launch.

Moving the mouse around seems to have an ill effect on FPS.  The camera does not actually need to move, but having a menu open, and then moving the mouse will still have the same effect, similar to bug 46059 (CLOSED FIXED).

Unable to test the mouse issue on Windows at this time.
