Running Eve on a VM


I use Ubuntu 18.04 and usually play Eve through wine (lutris and dxvk). Because I sometimes have random crashes and performance issues, I decided to try to use a VM.

I installed VMware player 15 and created machine with windows 8.1, installed directx, vcruntime, and the Eve client. Now I can start the game fine but once my character is loaded in the station I start having terrible input lag. The game continues to run at around 60fps and all animations are fine (I went outside the station to see the little lights and tethering) but all camera movements and mouse/keyboard input behave as if the game is running at less than 5 fps.

Has anyone encountered this issue and maybe found a fix for it?
Any help is appreciated
