Need something to manage all your games from different places? Lutris [Official Site] is pretty handy and it just had a huge upgrade.

Just released today, Lutris 0.5.3 is the first major release in a couple of months and as expected it doesn't disappoint on the list of improvements.

You now have an option for D9VK in addition to DXVK, making it an even better application to use with Wine so you can easily tweak your settings. Continuing on the addition of new options you can now hide the right and left panels, have Lutris hide when a game is launched plus there's an option for launching the Wine console.

For those of you using Discord and like to show off, it also now integrates Discord Rich Presence too. Additionally they added Ubuntu's AMDVLK path to Vulkan ICD loader search, the right panel gets refreshed when adding or removing shortcuts, Lutris will show an error when a runner install fails plus a bunch of nuisance bugs were solved. Something else that caught my eye, is that the team noted work was done for "future Flatpak support" which sounds good too.

Overall, it sounds like a really fantastic release. Very handy to deal with GOG, Steam, Wine + DXVK + D9VK, Emulators and more.

See the release notes on GitHub and you can support the development on Patreon.

I think too many people forget that Lutris is more than just a GUI for Wine. x)

Quoting: XpanderJust tested the Discord Rich Presence option. I dont use Lutris usually, but Discord sometimes shows like im playing wine64-preloader or similar and i was hoping that thisone is fixing that and showing the actual game name finally in discord ...but it seems it shows as Lutris and then a game name when i click on the name as a info.

I wonder if its possible to change that?

Does Lutris support VKD3D?

Quoting: AsciiWolfDoes Lutris support VKD3D?
Yes, VKD3D is built into wine so Lutris doesn't need to add special support like with DXVK and D9VK

I wonder is it possible to add this type of feature to Riot (Matrix) too? I have still not warmed up for Discord ...

I'm wondering if anyone knows if progress has been made regarding this bug? This isn't limited to Lutris, either. It seems any preloader that works in concordance with Wine has this affect on Discord. (e.g.: Proton/Steam) To be frank, I'm not even sure where the problem itself lies. Is it with Wine, Lutris, Steam or Discord?
