What works

Almost all is ok and very good (gpu performances are better than under windows if i believe the telemetry repport in the star citizen web site)

What does not

In all wine version tested, i have issues with my mouse and my keyboard.

The mouse (Kone Pure SE) was recognized as a joystick, need to blacklist it with a udev rule BEFORE installation.

(in a new file : /etc/udev/rules.d/51-these-are-not-joysticks-rm.rules)

SUBSYSTEM=="input", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1e7d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="2dca", ENV{ID_INPUT_JOYSTICK}=="?*", ENV{ID_INPUT_JOYSTICK}=""
SUBSYSTEM=="input", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1e7d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="2dca", KERNEL=="js[0-9]*", RUN+="/bin/rm %E{DEVNAME}", ENV{ID_INPUT_JOYSTICK}=""

If else, it will be in conflict in wine control panel (see a joystick in game peripherals and can't remove it into wine, the joystick always re-appear after relaunch.

After remove /dev/input/js0, i have ghosting keys issues. No more than 2 keys can be typed at the same time.

I tryed with the function "use dumb xinput emulator" proposed in lutris game config but it don't change anything.

The keyboard is an ELITE K10 with anti-ghosting capacity.

Another issue are sometime i don't have any sound, or have some "cracking" noises, but not very bad, it's very smouthy...


- > When the game launch, it go in abckground of the desktop.

2 ways possible :

do alt-tab to switch with the launcher and come back,

Or lanch the game in a virtual desktop

-> at the first launch, all freeze fully

need to wait about 5 to 15 minutes before all fully loaded and after it's ok.

What was not tested

FOIP not tested yet.

Play with discord app in a background didn't tested too...
