I was able to run Gauntlet in PlayOnLinux and play through the entire game with my daughter back in 2017.  Today it will probably run fine in SteamPlay with Proton.

Previously tested...

PlayOnLinux: 4.2.12
Wine: 2.12-staging

Overrides:

  • POL_Install_corefonts
  • POL_Install_d3dx10
  • POL_Install_d3dx11
  • POL_Install_d3dx9
  • POL_Install_Physx
  • POL_Install_tahoma

If I were to test it today, I would start with Wine 4.0.2 64-bit and add DXVK DLLs.  I bet it will run perfectly!
