Regarding the last sentence about using Bottles on the Steam Deck, do you also use it in Gaming mode or mainly on Desktop mode?
I noticed that in gaming mode not every function of Bottles can be used, as only the main window gets rendered and every button that would open a sub window seemingly does nothing.

Interesting that cheat engine also works with wine. I currently always booted into windows just for that.
