Diablo 1 (GOG Vanilla) won't go past launcher

I’m running Lutris on Manjaro with nvidia drivers 460.39. I installed Diablo 1 with “GOG - Hellfire - Vanilla version” installer, which ran fine. I launch the game and get the menu with Diablo, Diablo (Classic), Hellfire, Video Settings, Exit . Whichever of the first three options I click on, the launcher simply exits.

dmesg is full of

and game logs are showing:

I also tried wine5 instead of 6, same result.

Instead of running DiabloLauncher.exe, I tried:
~/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-6.0-x86_64/bin/wine "~/Games/diablo/drive_c/GOG Games/Diablo/Diablo.exe"

Got the resolution change (which is a good sign), and a popup asking me for the CD. The output on the console was:

When I try launching Diablo.exe from the dx folder, the resolution changes, I hear the sound of the Blizzard logo but I still see my desktop. The game then crashes (and my screen stays in 640x480) and wine dumps:
