So I have Ubuntu 19.04, Crossover Linux...  DVKM loaded...  everything looks good.  I installed the client, again, so far, so good.   It loads up, lets me choose the game to install, sets it up, everything doing ok.  Try to Play the game, the screen goes blank, then dumps me back to the screen with a random error message.  Any thoughts?  I have other games running just fine, vulkan is running (I even made sure that vulkanlib1:i386 was installed) ...  I've looked online but can't seem to come up with any solutions...  is there any progress being made here?  I'd REALLY like to kick Windows to the curb and right now, this is the ONLY thing keeping me from doing so...

It sounds like you are using the general crosstie for the install.  Different games require different environments and dependencies, so we would recommend installing each game using its specific crosstie into a separate bottle.  This way you will have all of the environment requirements for the specific title.

thanks for your input!  unfortunately, that didn't work. i searched around and also tried installing DXVK, disabling streaming and even added -dx9 to the command line.  Still the same thing. the search continues...

I know for WoW you need to set the to exit completely at game launch.

Could you please try disabling DXVK? (right click on the bottle and go to Settings). This worked for me with Hearthstone (with the Hearthstone specific application installation).
And indeed, please use the application specific installation recipes 😉
