    Conclusion:
    Call of Juarez Bound in Blood ran perfectly in PlayOnLinux with stable Wine alone. No need for DXVK or staging versions of Wine. My GeForce GTX 1060 handled the game perfectly and had great frame rates.

    The only problem I noticed was the logo videos in the beginning. Just press any key to skip them as you will only see a black screen.
