What works

Pretty much Everything , 

-editor

-game it self

What does not

memory consuption little bit higher

Workarounds

INTEL i5 , GTX 660 , 24 GIGA RAM 

i had to install vcrun2007 , quartz , mscore fonts .

Run  a 64bit prefix with 32-bit architecture enable wineHQ 6.0

Nvidia comes with vulkan support so i just installed in directory game DXVK ( verion 1.8.1 ) 

game run smooth with great performance , but some time hangs up for high temp GPU e CPU issues , but happen the same

in windows box , so i guess is not something wine releated. 

Only 2 more things:

1) i put a dxvk.com file in the game directory with the follwing option

dxgi.customDeviceId = 11c0 (gtx 660 )
dxgi.customVendorId = 10DE (nvidia)
dxgi.syncInterval = 0

2) define with winetricks the amount of VRAM = 2048 otherwise is like the game trying to put more stuff in ram 

     the my GPU can handle causing game to crash , with "error allocation memory " return error.

I used a normal 64-bit prefix
running with WINEHQ 6.0 e dxvk 1.8.1 ( setup.sh done on the game.exe folder )
lastest nvidia drivers (dxvk support already present )

i had to install vcrun2007 , quartz

some time the game crashes , but the game speed is awsome , just like in a windows box
i put a dxvk.conf file in the game directory specifing the prod.id and vendor.id
i have to figure out if is needed or not the NVAPI hack ....i dont know if i have to set it on true or false inside the dxvk.conf file.
Running the game

By creating a new WINEPREFIX containing only vcrun2012 (installed with winetricks), I'm able to run the game.
However, it's very slow and I have to set the game graphics options to medium or low, and uncheck all possible effects.

If I install dxvk into that wineprefix (running with setup_dxvk), the game doesn't start anymore.

Tested with wine-vanilla:5.22 and dxvk-1.5
Any other games I tried with this version of dxvk worked very well
