Cannot install Overwatch using any of the scripts

Hello! I am experiencing some issues installing Overwatch 2 using any of the scripts provided in the website. After I click on install, I get stuck on the “select installation folder”. What happens after I select it and click install is the install button disappears and I am left in the same screen, seemingly stuck. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

And here is a screenshot of the place where I get stuck on the installation:

Once again, thank you in advance! And apologies if this has already been posted. I am quite new to Linux so there’s much to learn. I also use Linux Mint Cinnamon.

You need to update Lutris to 0.5.11. If you added the ppa for Lutris to your Mint install, use sudo apt remove lutris to uninstall it, then use Software Sources app in the Admin menu and navigate to the PPAs section and select the Lutris PPA entry and click remove (do the same to the second entry if you have 2). Once you have completed this step, use this link to download the new version and double click it in Nemo. Then try to install the Overwatch script (here is a guide)

Thank you! The game is running, however everytime I launch Battle.net instead of play it says “UPDATE”. After I click it the game "updates’ and I am able to play afterwards. Weird…

Sadly your choices atm (unless you are on nvidia with the most recent driver and want to experiment with the dxvk 2.0 release) are update that does nothing with Wine-GE and good in game performance, or No update on each launch but long wait on shaders to compile with Caffe… I know which one I use (AMD gpu means I need to wait on the dxvk 2.0 features)
