According to ProtonDB, most of the Total War series are playable on Steam Proton. I've only got Shogun 2 (not currently installed), but I'm pretty sure it worked when I tried it on Steam.

I'd imagine the games are also playable via Lutris with the right Wine version.

EA Sports F1 2001 running via PlayOnLinux. It's fine as long as I don't try alt-tabbing out of it (or taking a screenshot) which hangs it :lol:

I also have Halo Combat Evolved installed on the same machine (Cortana running on Linux Mint...)

I'm playing Total War Warhammer 3 currently via steam proton.

I've found for the games that have a native version of the game developed by Feral that the performance can be iffy and the build can be outdated, so I always tell Steam to play the Windows version of Total War games via Proton instead of the native ones.

Picked up Starship Troopers - Terran Command for a reasonable price so I've just started that. I've only done the first couple of missions so far, but seems OK so far.
