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: And, oddly enough, still clicking on wall mac....

Time 4 Tea: Me too! There will be a Bloodstained 2 before any of us catch up with Purify (does he have more than one profile?)

Dominique: Did Mr. Welldone ever find his book? If they make Bloodstained 2, I want Dom to redeem herself like Ghaleon did in Lunar 2. My girl can't go out like that. Too tragic and I just don't like it.

EbonAnimus: q2 nearly done and again nothing on dlc, no pc version shipped, but no one says anything and all are sooooo happy about it... really suck, these dorky dlc´s we got could be done in a few days by a single japanese worker, but sadly no one´s doing anything..

Redogan: Yeah, it is getting a little silly how long it is taking for them to finish up the DLC's and ship out a complete PC version with everything. I'd like a complete game now, thanks.

Yän: Sorry but I've rarely read such gross exaggeration. Sure. there hasn't been anything new for a while but the amount of content we got this far in terms of DLC is certainly not something that is doable by a single person. Not that much still missing either.
