What works

The game starts and seems to run as well as it does under Windows.

What does not

  • Fullscreen: Fullscreen seems to enable from the options menu, but it does not function correctly.  The game appears to attempt to change the display resolution to something very low.  This tends to fails to succeed and I end up with an all black screen.  Which I'm able to switch out of by pressing alt+tab.  At that point I'm unable to interact with the game so I end up needing to kill the process.
    • I am told there is a "fullscreen hack" in proton.
  • Text to speech: If text-to-speech is enabled from within the options the game will crash when it gets to the point where it would attempt to read text aloud.  Example: At the start of the game when you exit the helicopter.


What was not tested

I was able to play the game all the way through to completion without any issues.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
