Once I was able to get the proper version of Nvidia, Wine and DXVK running... Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered ran perfectly! I was able to get decent frame rates and cranked most of the setting to high.
Once I saw the HUD when launching the game, I knew DXVK was working. Otherwise the game would freeze up every time.
