What works

Pretty much everything but with even more bugs.

Its Alpha guysss.. :P

Very low frames around 10-15fps on a i7-9800X, 32GB RAM @3600mhz and a GTX1080TI (maybe a missconfiguration on my end)

What does not

DX11/12 from wine crashes when loading up the splash screen.


From the other test results.

Install from Winetricks -


dxvk (Vulkan)

HowTo / Notes

Using the GL cache

Using the GL cache gave me a 10%-30% boost with performance, based on the fps.

Just add this to the startscript:

export __GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE=true
export __GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE_PATH="/home/you/yourcachepath/SC"
