    Follow my step-by-step guide on installing, configuring and optimizing Bombshell in Linux with PlayOnLinux.

    Visual settings can also be manually set with an .ini file
    For some reason the fullscreen resolution would not be automatically inherited

    Go to:
    Code:

    Open ShellSystemsettings.ini
    bombshell31.png

    Adjust ResX & ResY to match your Linux desktop resolution
    Click Save

    .NET error
    Sometimes you will get a Dot NET Framework Inistialization Error.
    This error won't affect the game or installation
    Click OK
    bombshell33.png

    Conclusion:
    Bombshell ran really well with Wine 3.3 and my GeForce GTX 1060. There are times where it begins to slow down, but you can easily lower some of the visual settings to resolve this. Otherwise, its pretty fun and visually brilliant!
