sometimes, it does pay to be a bit backward, on these issues:
- - try both an earlier version of Crossover & an earlier version of LinuxMint, as well.

as I've had some success, with both an earlier version of Cx on an later version of LM,
& and earlier version of LM on an later version of Cx. ... strange, but this often does work.

when you do have the later version of both - then things often do break.
& things can even break, when you use a later windows version in your ./wine bottle.

Hey Joe. Sorry for the delay on this. Did you get past the black screen?
I was experiencing same issue with WoW and Diablo3. In other words anything needing DirectX.
I found this article in support section to be extremely helpful.

If you have Nvidia, there are latest Ubuntu-based drivers here, which work fine for me.

Just install the PPA, and to get the latest version installed, run "sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall"
This wi9ll install the latest recommended driver for your card.
To see which drivers are available for your card, run "ubuntu-drivers devices"

Get the drivers, follow the rest of the Crossover help link above, hopefully this resolves your issue.

I was having this exact same issue and I did this two things:

- In client general options disable  "Use browser hardware acceleration when available"
- In client general options set the client to "Exit completely" in the "when I launch a game" field

After those two changes I can play and the black screen issue never occurred
I don't know if it's just a coincidence, but worth a try

Using the bottle created during install, installed DXVK afterward (Ryzen + RX580 on arch linux)

Thank you!  This fixed the blank screen issue for me:

- In client general options disable  "Use browser hardware acceleration when available"
- In client general options set the client to "Exit completely" in the "when I launch a game" field

For me, I had to disable the streaming option on to remove the black screen!
