I tryed a Fresh install (Arch, Ubuntu, Pop!_OS...) same hardware, same Game (Life is Strange 2) and BIOS setup etc, BUT freezes.
Works perfectly under Windows, so no hardware problem. (and not OS specific)
But I think you've helped me enough, this is Off topic 🙂
I'm waiting for the new Bottles version, as I play mainly with old titles, and it works perfectly, without freezing. 🙂
