Updated Nvidia drivers, installed latest wine, Vulkan, DXVK (<3) and Overwatch. It now runs on ultra on Ubuntu 16.04 with around the same fps as on high on Windows. Gotta love the Linux community!13
Today, January 13th 2019, marks the one year anniversary of the initial release of DXVK.
Through DXVK, I've personally seen compatibility like never before with running Windows games on Linux. Some games which I had never been able to play on Linux before, games which tied me down to keeping a Windows desktop around - no longer bind me.
At the same time, today marks one year remaining for Microsoft's support of Windows 7 - which will be cut off at January 14th 2020. At which time those shackles would bind to a corpse.
I felt it appropriate to celebrate with a DXVCake!1
So I'm flabbergasted at the current trend of non-native Linux gaming becoming so stable and performant. In these past few months, I've witnessed stability akin to native support on games I had never expected to run well on Linux before.
DXVK had its initial release in January 2018, and so far every single game I've thrown it at has run so well that I forget it's non-native.
With front-ends like Lutris, it's easier than ever to get these non-native titles configured perfectly - to say nothing about what Proton offers for UX.
What will the 2nd year of DXVK bring? Extended Support for Windows 7 ends in one year - and I've never seen such stability and capability from Linux gaming parity.2
Steam is distancing from supporting Ubuntu officially and its looking for a more up to date distro.
Well isnt this a nice suprise.
Im kind of happy that they are doing that. From what i saw and heard its pain for valve devs to bring latest updates to Ubuntu as they update DXVK to latest version but Ubuntu doesnt have latest Mesa and so it doesnt work most of the time.32
Polymorphism (Object Oriented) explained better :
1) Father : Son, go and get Red Label.
Son : Full or Half? ..
2) Mother : Son, go and get Red Label.
Son : 100g or 250g? ..5
- Install Overwatch via Lutris on Linux.
- Get absolutely terrible performance and rendering bugs.
- Disable DXVK.
- Get slightly better performance (wtf?).
- Still runs at like 20% of potential performance.
- Give up and try to install Windows.
- Windows install fails.
Aaand so I spent my weekend configuring shit instead of relaxing/gaming. Ugh.10
give mediocre server capacity... put multiple webapps and db on that.....exepct to run properly all the time......awesome expectations1
I'm rewriting the wrapper I've been using for a couple years to connect to Lord of the Rings Online, a windows app that runs great in wine/dxvk, but has a pretty labyrinthine set of configs to pull down from various endpoints to craft the actual connection command. The replacement I'm writing uses proper XML parsing rather than the existing spaghetti-farm of sed/grep/awk/etc. I'm enjoying it quite a bit.1
isnt it good if companies ensure that users have baaaaaasssic computer literacy if their job requires it...1
Well, a combination of DXVK, wine and dxvk-cache-pool was used to try and play Path of Exile. The problem seems to be that I can't have any pre-built caches due to them not existing. Seems like a GTX 660 isn't really used anymore and if I want to play a game I will have to have DXVK build its own cache.
Until then, I'm stuck with a stuttery mess of a game due to Path of Exile having a rather many levels. A full playthrough will be necessary until it starts working smoothly.7
Finally got Proton to run arbitrary programs with some tinkering. Works fairly well for running nigh anything I throw at it, even some random non-game programs. Might do this more often. (Next up: DXVK)10

Delegate option in approval system used by users as an excuse to escape approving lot of documents :D
New Year's goal: find out if linux vulkan/mesa drivers work on my desktop as there's no real reason to not switch now other than maybe that.
Proton, DXVK and Gallium Nine support like 80% of games now (suck it, nvidia users, we get the good ones!) and i've seen performance improvements after switching from Windows builds on Windows to Windows builds on Proton using the same hardware.
Question is: how the hell do I carry over almost 2TB of shit to the new partitions? Also, Virtualbox is a bitch on Linux as if my kernel updates it's fucked and Boxes is trash...12
