What works

- Installing
- downloading games
- playing games
- syncing savegames
- integrations
- showing the overlay (see below)

What does not

- The UI is very slow especially if you move or resize the window
- The overlay will not contain content in the main tile (it will claim that there was no internet connection) but it will still show your friendlist and you can toggle FPS


Install corefonts via winetricks. That will at least solve the black-window error

What was not tested

- Messenger

- Notifications

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Note that installing corefonts or setting a DLL override for libgles2.dll is not necessary anymore.

The installer said that there were an error because of missing components at the end but I have not yet had any problems that could go back to that.
