When using wine, have you ever encounter a problem where fleetops starts a black window?

I've successfully run Armada 2 in a Macbook pro using wineskin. But no luck with fleetops -
Wineskin currently has Crossover engine 22(=wine 7.0) and 23 (=wine 8.0) available as backend.
Fleetops 3.2.7 - starts a black window, can click buttons, instant action menu is normal, but will crash when I click launch.
Fleetops 4.0 - starts normally, but mission loads very very very long. I think more than 3 minutes. Eventually it works, but loading time is too long.
Just wondering if any of you ever have such problem with wine 7.0 or 8.0. Thank you

I'm playing Fleetops 3.2.7 from Xubuntu 22.04.03 LTS, using Wine 8.0.2 and until now I didn't have any problems.

Thank you!

Do you use any winetricks or dll override specific for Fleetops?

I do not use any winetricks on Xubuntu.
The key to solving the game launch was the file named dc-starmadaii11.7z file from here: or from here:
After copying the file in the game folder, the game started without problems. (Take a look to my previous posts regarding Fleet Ops and Ubuntu).
Maybe you need to made a fresh reinstall of the Wine app, I don't know.
