    I tried but not having any luck with it in lutris or playonlinux. I'm on Ubuntu pop os with xfce no gnome. I have question i'm using wine-staging isn't it on 5.9 now because for some reason i have 5.7 staging not 5.9. I'm just using wine-staging 5.7 but everytime i get to the screen first part it freezes.

    Fire Warrior actually looks kinda cool even though its older!
    I wonder if multiplayer includes co-op?

    Looks like it is a DirectX 9 game, so it should run great in Wine.
    Have you tried doing a manual installation in PlayOnLinux?

    I did some searching online and can't find any recent test results. So you are on your own, but I can help with any errors or bugs.

    When I do a manual installation I typically use the following steps:
    1. Launch PlayOnLinux
    2. Click Install
    3. Click “Install a non-listed program”
    4. Click Next
    5. Select “Install in a new virtual drive”
    6. Name your virtual drive (no spaces)
    7. Select all three options:- Use another version of Wine
      - Configure Wine
      - Install some libraries
    8. Select Wine version
    9. Wine Configuration- Set Windows version
    10. Graphics Tab:- Check “automatically capture mouse...”
      - Check “emulate a virtual drive”
      - Desktop size: 1024x768
    11. Click Ok
    12. Select Packages to install
    13. Standard Packages:
      - core fonts
      - d3dx9
      - d3dx10
      - d3dx11
      - dotnet 40
      - gdiplus
      - tahoma
      - vcrun20xx
    14. Click Browse
    15. Select Game Installer EXE
    16. Follow installation instructions
    17. Uncheck any Desktop shortcuts
    18. Complete game installation
    19. PlayOnLinux Shortcut
    20. Select exe for shortcut
    21. Name the shortcut
    22. PlayOnLinux Configure
    23. Set Display Options
    24. Set Memory size
    25. Run Game

    OK so i figured out one BIG problem. That might have been the cause. This is common issue and people overlook. Its very impotent for you to check your Memory,(Ram) I let this go even when i knew i was getting errors and things when unzipping or unraring things. I was also getting strange errors in installing GOG Games files Corrupt. But this was going on for couple months. Little things starting to happen here and there oddly things. I suspected it being the memory but i didn't really test this until now. And Boy OH Boy I'm i Glad :). I had a Memory stick that was Dead. whole lot of errors. (once Memory is dead its dead for good) I used Memtest86 and it lasted 3hours for the whole test to complete. WOW I'm happy i did it. So right now i'm only using one stick of ram 8gb until i buy more.

    So please Gamer's out there test your Memory! Even if you think its fine. Test it just to have piece of mind. You have 100% guarantee.

    Test your ram with memtest86

    You need good guide here's the one i used. He's an awesome Tech YouTuber

    No way!!!
    Who would have thought a bad memory stick was causing issues when everything else was running great?
    Nice find!
