Version released February 4, 2019
What does not
There's minor stuttering in game when firing big guns or when there's lots of smoke nearby. This is happening on my system with a Geforce GTX 970 and and Intel Core i5-6400.
Before I install the game I run
winetricks -q dxvk corefonts dotnet40 vcrun2015
Without dxvk the ground textures are rendered at see level making flights close to the ground and landings very challenging. Without corefonts and dotnet40 the launcher won't run. And without vcrun2015 the game will crash without warning when loading a mission after mission setup.
BoS.LogParser.Offline.exe will not start and will pop up dialogs saying the required .NET framework is not found. This is because it requires .NET 3.5. .NET 3.4 does not work in wine 64-bit. One workaround is to just rename or delete BoS.LogParser.Offline.exe, but you won't have any stats in game when playing offline and when hosting a server that server won't have any stats either. A better workaround is to decompile BoS.LogParser.Offline.exe with ILSpy then recompile it using Visual Studio IDE targeting .NET 4.0. Then just replace the old BoS.LogParser.Offline.exe with the newly compiled one.
