browren - I'm genuinely happy for you and the Linux backers. Although I personally wasn't affected, I felt it was a low-blow to those who were involved and it's great to hear that you can finally enjoy the game you pleged your hard-earned money towards.
Thank you, but no need. I should have followed up earlier, but there's been this game that's been sucking up all my free time...
The solution to my problem turned out to be getting DXVK to work. I'd struggled with getting vulkan to work before, but... struggling with it again did the trick this time for some reason. I don't know, all I did was blacklist the radeon driver but I'm certain that I've done that in the past. Multiple times, in multiple ways. I also used Lutris this time for easy DXVK setup, I was using Play on Llinux before, so maybe that made some difference too.
The only common thing between the rooms where I was crashing, at least that I can see, is that they both have Ordogs in them. I don't know if there's something weird about Ordogs, but... I dunno.
I had the whitescreen problem with DXVK and Lutris: when I started the game it would flash the logo briefly, then the screen would go white and I'd hear a sound like breaking glass and it would stall there. This is a problem I've seen mentioned in other places, solved by renaming the movies directory.
This lead me to my last (current) problem: GPU overheating. Bloodstained looks terrific with DXVK, much better than before, but I've had this laptop for a year and I've never had these kinds of problems with heat. I don't usually play very demanding games, but I can see why they're struggling with getting the Switch version to work.
My heat problems are not Bloodstained's fault of course, a laptop which can't handle the thermal load from it's own GPU is just a poorly designed laptop. I mention my heat problems though because I've seen a lot of people complaining about stuttering and, for me at least, the stuttering is caused by GPU overheating. I've addressed this one by propping up my laptop for better airflow and monitoring my heat carefully. Have to take breaks from playing now and then...
Glad to see that it works with Wine/Proton, and while i won't buy the game anytime soon (i'm not a fan of 555 cause of how they handled things). I will buy it when it goes on sale, heavily discounted, or appears on humble bundle or bundle monthly. Till then i'll stick to my favourites, SOTN and AOS. Though if i get a Switch, i might get the switch version.
Redogan: ^^ Game looks pretty solid....for a mobile game. Maybe it will do well.

Ryngar Acia: ...or they've just been in a stupidity-induced coma for the past several years. Maybe they'll wake up someday? ;;

Yän: They already lost many of their best people. Even if they made some decent choices again, they'd never get back to their glory days

Ryngar Acia: It still seems like they a have fair amount of talented people, though. I dunno about returning the "glory days" but they could still be doing so much better, if the higher-ups would just pull their heads out of their butts.

purifyweirdshard: I think they'll do something decent again, eventually. The new mobile game might not be that thing, but the anniversary collection was a step in a good direction
