    Not the greatest performance with Unreal Tournament 3 under Wine (proton)

    Unreal Tournament 3 works under Wine Proton 8.0 with FreeBSD 13.2-RELEASE-p4/5. My main issue is that there are many times where the frame rate will drop to 20 or under when it shouldn't considering my hardware. I have a Ryzen 5 3400G paired with an Nvidia GTX 1050. My launcher is as follows:

    Cyberpunk 2077

    With Cyberpunk 2077 now rated as working well on Mac OS (via Game Porting Tool Kit harnessing Wine 7.7) and Linux via Proton, has anyone tried or managed to run Cyberpunk 2077 on a FreeBSD host, via Wine-Proton or some other implementation?

    Games?

    What are some "good" games available for FreeBSD? Ones that require some brain-work to the end. Or an FPS, somewhat like Call of Duty? Right now the only one I have bothered to install is Mahjong, and I am pretty bored with it by now. BTW, I am 80 years old. Ken
