    Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a medieval first person RPG simulator. The details are so realistic with character development, survival, fighting techniques, skills and even graphics... I have never played a game so immersive. Play as Henry the blacksmiths son who barely survives a massacre where your parents were murdered and your hometown burned to the ground.

    Conclusion:
    Initially when downloading 50 Gigabytes from GOG of individual 4GB files some of them were corrupted. I was not able to install the game and had to run the integrity check to see which files were corrupted. Then I had to download them again. Eventually I was able to install the entire 50GB game.

    I began testing Kingdom Come with stable Wine then staging Wine and it ran but very slow. Frame rates were easily under 20 FPS and I was barely able to play. After some research on https://www.protondb.com/app/379430 several gamers posted great frame rates with GloriousEggRoll's Proton fork and disabling esync. Sure enough it worked and I was getting 30+ FPS even on high settings. There are a few areas where it still might drop below 20 FPS but still way better than stable Wine. My GeForce GTX 1060 was able to handle the CryEngine and its quite a beautiful game!

    I did get a crash when loading a cutscene, but it only happened once. Definitely experiment with different GloriousEggRoll versions of Proton and DXVK. I did notice some graphical artifacts with textures or missing textures, but it was very rare.
