D9VK, the project based on DXVK to provide Vulkan for running Direct3D 9 games in Wine has an actual release now.
It's come along very quickly, with quite a number of games now actually running and faster than with the normal Wine so it's obviously quite impressive. If/when it gets merged with DXVK, this could really help Steam Play too which is another exciting point about it.
Announcing D9VK 0.10, developer Joshua Ashton said:
I am pleased and happy to announce the first release of D9VK -- Version 0.10!
It's beginning to run a large amount of modern (ie. Shader Model 2 and 3) D3D9 games fairly well, so I figured I should probably start shipping releases now that we are at this stage.
There are still a few missing features (Shader Model 1 support is incomplete -- as well as fixed function.)
Hopefully you'll try it out and it'll work. If it doesn't please do report an issue!
See more on the official GitHub page.
In other related news, Lutris also has a dedicated bundle for it now too which you can find here. I've tested it personally with Starcraft II, a game I've owned for a great many years and the performance difference is pretty incredible.
There's also a post in our forum which is quite lively for those who want to regularly share shots of it.
