jimmw: I'm enjoying Fallout 3 at the moment on Mint (19.1). I've had a couple of (rare) crashes but I suspect that's more to do with the game itself than wine-related. Although Alt-tab'ing is a no-no - I have to kill it with the start kill option if I accidently do that. But it seems that's a pretty general problem with using wine. Otherwise it's perfectly fine.
Fallout 3 and FONV, Oblivion, Skyrim etc. all have a tendency to crash from time to time due to engine bugs... just save regularly and over multiple save files, and be careful with mods :)

You could try enabling the virtual desktop to prevent the crash on alt+tab - simply create a file named "desktop" in the wrapper's support directory.

jimmw: I did have a checksum error with the xz file in there. I recalculated it and edited the script - which may have been a bad idea on my part, as it defeats the purpose of the checksum being there... ;) - but all fine otherwise. I'm hoping you just forgot to update the checksum when you updated the script with the latest proton a couple of days ago.
The checksums should all be correct as they're updated automatically when the wrapper scripts are packaged. I downloaded it to check and there were no issues so I'd recommend downloading it again and making sure the checksum for the downloaded file matches the one in the post.

The wrapper for XIII has been updated to use the new installer.

I resolved the checksum issue - it turns out I'd inadvertently dragged n dropped another file into the tar. My bad!

Thanks again!
