Ok, I'll admit I was wrong. 30 million was a tad low. To be fair, I'll admit a backed it Originally and remember them announcing something to that tune.

Wait....they made 16 million in a month last year?!?!

OK, this got me curious to try it again. Setting up the prefix :)

With regular Wine, the launcher looks like a white box. It works with Wine-staging though!

Well, the game is crashing almost instantly after the launcher tires to start it. I don't see anything meaningful in the wine log either. Using Wine staging + dxvk, nothing else unusual enabled (I did set that /proc/sys/vm/max_map_count to 655300 though).

I use the wine version that the Lutris installer specifies (lutris-ge-6.16-1-x86_64). Learned the hard way that specific version were chosen for a reason. Also, your max_map_count is very low. Should be 16777216.

Wow, that's a huge number :) 655300 used to work in the past. I guess they are adding huge amount of objects in the game. I'll give it a try. And will check if some other Wine versions help.

Is it one of these? https://github.com/GloriousEggroll/wine-ge-custom/releases

Probably built from that. But if you really don't want to use Lutris, you'll have some stuff to figure out. May the helper script can assist. The script at least provides some repos for alternate wine builds suitable for SC.

I'm not using Lutris directly, but I can try using their Wine builds if they are available somewhere. Don't they provide custom pre-built Wine versions?
