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

Posted by , | Views: 11,589

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.

EhvisBut does it run Fortnite?

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

It does - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jS11MBNaVpw


Thanks to DXVK and Wine it's becoming increasingly easy to switch to Linux without giving up your fav games.

CorbenAwesome, 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

If those rumors are indeed true such a built in Wine wrapper would give us some security that a big chunk of all old Windows titles, plus almost all new titles will at least run on Linux. At the same time Valve helpes to make Vulkan an ideal standard API, which makes native Linux games easier to develop and gives wrapper games better performance.
I like the idea!

Hi,
Can you provide a link to this project? I'm looking for something like that.
Cheers,

Best make that "it did". Since the Fortnite update, not so much anymore.

Technically it doesn't work currently. I can load the game and enter a match before being thrown right back out with "connection lost."

I was hoping to give the game a shot and see what's the craze with Battle Royale games, I only ever tried PUBG on phone which is a different experience than the PC.

Thanks for the heads up, and to @drlamb for the link.

WoW no longer requires the "DXVK_FAKE_DX10_SUPPORT" to run!

nadrolinuxCan you provide a link to this project? I'm looking for something like that.
You can find such a project here: https://github.com/xomachine/SteamForwarder
An older one was SteamBridge.
Beware though, I have never tried this myself, and you might get banned using it.
