I'm aware that it runs without any workarounds - but one of the steps in the guide is crucial to enable some of the performance patches on Windia, and that is using winecfg to override the d3d8 library. I will figure out a solution for this in the future so that overriding winecfg is not necessary.
Could you provide feedback on performance after applying the winecfg edit?
I tried it a few seconds ago and seems to have improved a bit, but there's still FPS drops with NPCs dialogue.
The NPC "chat box" crash keeps happening, I'm still on the first island in the game, only happens on some areas as far i know.

What's your PC specs? Distro? GPU driver?
Can you provide a video demonstrating the gameplay until the crash?
If you can provide a WINE SEH log of the crash that'd help me figure it out.

WINE SEH? I don't know where I can get that
My specs are: CPU: Intel Core i3-2100
GPU: NVIDIA GT218 [GeForce 210]
GPU Driver: Nouveau, NVA8 v: 3.3 Mesa 21.3.2 (unable to use proprietary driver)
Distro: Solus 4.3 (I doubt this is relevant because rolling release distros generally use latest staging versions).

I could record a gameplay of the crash, but now it's 1 a.m at my location.

Try editing windia.ini in the game folder. Disable vsync and limit the FPS to 100
