D9VK, the project based on DXVK for translating D3D9 to Vulkan which is used together with Wine has a massive new release now available.

Joshua Ashton sure is doing some impressive work, how ridiculously quickly this has come along is crazy. I'm constantly astonished by all the work going on in various projects like this, to help keep pushing Linux gaming forwards in so many different ways.

Released just recently, D9VK 0.12 code-named "Cool Lookin' Blue Frog" includes much improved performance in various areas thanks to entirely rewritten texture code, which should be faster overall. There's also a rewritten presentation and swapchain code, improvements to stuttering for games like A Hat in Time and League of Legends and various new features which will also improve rendering in a bunch more games too.

There's also a ton of bug fixes that come along with this release, you can see the full release notes here.

As a reminder, there's a post in our forum with people showing off various shots of it running, quite fun to follow along.

Yeah but i finish bayonetta test and runs very good 70% less cpu usage in core 0 and 1 compared wined3d and more smooth

However once finish vanquish, test gt legends (with d9vk stay on graphic menu, push to play and back to menu ) and race 07 too

Awesome! I was playing A Hat in Time through Proton, but the performance was quite bad. Switched to d9vk and it was incredibly fast, but I experienced some crashes. Seems those are fixed now!

Yes! I also once tried that game but with the same issue as you described. I need to check it out as well!

I wondering when Lutris will add D9VK support

The original Skyrim yes. Special Edition is DX11 I believe.

Would be nice. At least for now you can manually download the latest version and just reference it under the DXVK version drop-down.
