Gydion: To clarify Wine version(s): should be listing the working versions. Obviously, it's useful to mention non-functioning versions you tried where you do. What Wine builds are you using anyway? Wine on OS X has been rough these last several releases.

Looking at the AppDB I see no reason for the flash verb and does it actually need tahoma? The linked font bug is about 'Courier New' and not tahoma.
Fair point on tahoma (and flash may be more relevant to Steam). I'll revise the Wine listing.
For a while I forgot that it is not always possible to run Windows game under Linux...
That made me to try – without success:

Fossil Echo – the game is delivered with Linux installer elsewhere. For GOG version I was not able even launch the game. Now, in this special case, I'd be happy with some Steam Connect service to be able to transfer my purchase to Steam :|

Stories Untold – now I remember, why I removed why I removed the game from my wishlist. I've tried the demo before and it didn't worked. Now I've bought the full game here and it looks I'm not able to play due to some graphical/drivers issues (menu not displayed properly, episode one displayed upside down).

Chook & Sosig: Walk the Plank – reports missing Mono and I don't know how to fix it. Perhaps it's a matter of itch.io package, which is not a proper installer, but simply game folder to be run directly.

The King's Bird – and this one (also delivered as a game folder, without installer) works out-of-the-box, but is poorly optimized and requires low graphic setting to work with decent fps.

For the good news – Banished works like a charm and probably I'll report it here soon.
Game: Order of Battle: World War II
Installer MD5s: setup_order_of_battle_world_war_ii_8.4.4_(64bit)_(38267).exe = b2c73ce269f856049a865fe2ecba8035
WineHQ AppDB link: n/a
CodeWeavers link: n/a

Distro: Slackware 64 Current (14.2+)
Desktop: KDE 4.14.38
Kernel version: x86_64 Linux 5.4.43
Graphics card: Radeon RX 580 Series (POLARIS10, DRM 3.35.0, 5.4.43, LLVM 10.0.0)
Wine version(s) tested: wine 5.7 (Staging)
Crossover version(s) tested: 19.0.0

Install notes:

Install in a 64-bit wine prefix. In wine, the game doesn't start when using the desktop icon, so you need to set it to launch Order\ of\ Battle\ -\ WW2.exe instead or autorun.exe if you need to see the Slitherine launcher first. The game doesn't work properly in full screen mode, so use a virtual desktop with the size set according to your display resolution.

How well does it run:

The intro doesn't work and a black screen is shown instead. You need to click anywhere to bypass it. The game locks in full screen mode if you change focus away from it (use a virtual desktop fix). If using crossover, the game doesn't react initially to the mouse, so you need to alt-tab away from it first before the mouse works properly. The game hangs on exit, so its process needs to be killed manually. I noticed a very small bug which may also be present in windows (I can't test): when you select certain flak units, the game draws a combat result window on top which always stays on screen until you reload the game using a save (it doesn't prevent playing though). One other issue I noticed is very high CPU usage, which causes my PC to overheat over time, so beware.

Other than that, everything works really well and the game is fully playable. I completed one campaign from an additional DLC and multiple other missions. I haven't tested the multiplayer mode.

shmerl: According to Joshua Ashton (dxvk / d9vk developer), memory issues in Bioshock Infinite can be caused by Galaxy.dll. Is there some way to disable it? I tried to outright remove or ban it with env variable, but then the game doesn't even start, since dynamic linker requires it. May be some fake stub can work around it, but it should at least link properly.

See: https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/1085
The search here is a bit wonky, so there may be more recent posts about Bioshock Infinite that I didn't find, but does it work well on Linux now? How would I install and run it successfully?

I didn't try playing it very recently, but it was kind of working before.

I never finished the game on Linux using the Windows version, but I did get a bit far when testing with dxvk (about 3hrs in). I did get a couple crashes from time to time but nothing serious, apparently the game is sometimes unstable even on Windows.

As for how to install and run it, that depends on what you use (Lutris, Plain Wine, Steamplay...etc). Personally I use plain Wine Staging and configure the game's with self made scripts.

Thanks. Perhaps I ought to look into Lutris again, if there are scripts for it. I've not had great luck just starting things with Wine without any fancy stuff, and I'm not very comfortable with that either (same with DXVK). Which is why I love Adam's scripts here. Am currently playing the original Bioshock and loving it, and will try to get Infinite running afterwards.

Ideally GOG themselves would sort out all this stuff, so we could actually play the games we have bought for Linux, without all this extra headache of writing scripts ourselves, either individually or from great people like Adam and others.
Has anyone gotten Gunship! to work? WineDB has a very, very old entry and I haven't found any mention of anything newer.
