SUPERHOT (Steam) Here i guess steam picks the wrong exe, because SUPERHOT.exe crashs but SH.exe not.WINEPREFIX=/home/$USER/.local/share/Homura/Games/Steam wine "/home/$USER/.local/share/Homura/Games/Steam/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/SUPERHOT/SH.exe" (Needs retest if this is still needed)
Anno 1404 (Steam) If you get a blackscreen then you can fix it with one click with the function "Applying a fix".
FarCry (Steam) Disable "Fullscreen" in the "FarCry Config" tool and let automatically detect the graphic settings. Then the graphics should be set to the worst, this is also correct because the game does not start with higher graphics settings. (Needs retest if this is still needed)
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Steam) Enable "Windowed Mode" at the start and change the graphic settings to very low so that you stay under 4GB ram usage.
PAYDAY 2 (Steam) Depth of field must be switched off in graphic settings to avoid graphic errors.

FAQ

What i can do if i have sound problems?

Open winetricks in the gameprefix and install xact. At this time faudio can not be applayed because the newest version of winetricks have been not ported yet and i dont recommend anyone to use selfupdate.

Use more than 60hz!

Some games are locked to 60hz in fullscreen, this may cause image tearing or even poor performance, to workaround that lock use fullscreen-windowed or windowed. Btw you can see if your default Hz gets changed if you go ingame and the screen is longer black and usually.

I want to use Directx 9/10/11 only!

Open winetricks in the game prefix then select open in winecfg and go to libraries. Now add d3d9/d3d10/d3d11 and set them to disabled and appy the settings.
