I love playing my BASS guitar and if Kali is running I want to play it with Rocksmith 2014, which is a windows game. This is how I got it working on Kali 2021.2

System Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070
Linux me 5.10.0-kali9-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.46-4kali1 (2021-08-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Install crossover bin file

wget https://media.codeweavers.com/pub/crossover/cxlinux/demo/install-crossover-21.0.0.bin
chmod 755 install-crossover-21.0.0.bin

Enable 32 bit arch
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

Install 32 bit drivers for Nvidia - your system still uses 64 bit, but the 32 bit drivers are used for OpenGL etc
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-libs:i386

Run cxdiag - works
Run cxdiag64 - works

In Crossover install steam
Run Steam
In Steam install rocksmith and Rocksmith 2014
The game will run smooth

lspci -k | grep -EA3 'VGA|3D|Display'

Tip: Because you have 32bit arch, be careful when you update packages, make sure you see if it wants to remove packages, do not just click yes to remove packages! Alternatively disable 32 bit afterwards
sudo dpkg --remove-architecture i386
