DXVK 0.70 is out with support for Direct3D 10 over Vulkan in Wine

Posted by , | Views: 7,078

DXVK [GitHub] continues the amazing progress towards helping Linux gamers play their favourite Windows-only games on Linux.

Just released minutes ago, DXVK 0.70 adds in the previously announced Direct3D 10 support (more info here). In addition to this, it also adds in support for the D3D11.1 ClearView method and  D3D11.1 extended double instructions.

There's also some setup changes to be aware of:

Instead of having to set up 32-bit and 64-bit DLLs separately, the release binaries now come with a custom winetricks verb which sets up both sets of DLLs for 64-bit wine prefixes, and only the 32-bit ones for 32-bit prefixes.

Release notes here for more info on that.

I do honestly love watching DXVK evolve and I'm still shocked and just how quickly it has progressed. I don't personally make use of it, but it's nice that it exists for those who want to be on Linux, but don't want to give up Windows games that are likely to never be ported over.

Wonderful!!
I wish there was someone who’s making an arma3 installer on lutris, since experimental port has all features like workshop and louncher!

But does it run Fortnite?

Sorry. Couldn't resist. I'll see myself out now!

this is a great projectHopefully this will mature into something big and valve will use this project in steamos - Hopefully. but one has to cool down. So I'll have an ice tea-again. We'll wait and see what happens

You mean installer for "native" version or Windows version in Wine?

I mean a lutris installer to play the game on wine, in the hope the experimental linux port will come soon with full support, so we won’t need to play this game through wine.

Can't believe how quickly the development goes. It seems to have gotten lots of attention and momentum, hopefully all that effort and time invested isn't diluted in the ocean in the near future.

Awesome, just awesome!

I'm wondering if the rumors that Valve could add Windows gaming in any way to Linux/SteamOS is correlated with this?

There is a github project out there already, that let's you use a Windows game with wine communicating with the Linux Steam client. So SteamWorks etc. is working. Of course not officially supported, but Valve could be working on something similar.

So, if we would then get Windows games on Linux with support by Valve and/or the devs and publishers... what do you think about that? On the one hand, oh hell, yes! I could finally play all the games, all of them! On the other hand, I'm afraid about native Linux games.

Maybe it's completely different and nothing like that happens

Arma3 port is fully functional , just click install from your Steam library on Linux client.

It does not show Mac&Linux on store page because port usually lags behind a version which makes cross platform play against Windows uncompatible.

Which that is sufficient to say " experimental " from Bohemia's perspective.

Fully functional, except rotorlib, crashes every 30 minutes and incompatibility with Windows ATM. On the other hand, Wine does not fully support BattlEye yet

So your best bet is still Linux port , not Lutris
