DXVK for Direct3D 11 with Vulkan in Wine has another update with 0.53

Posted by , | Views: 7,596

DXVK [GitHub] advances so quickly it's really quite incredible, it had a release only a few days ago and here we are with another.

No big new features with this release, as it's mainly to clean up some issues. Two regressions were fixed from the previous release with World of Warcraft, Far Cry 3 and Nier: Automata.

In terms of other bugs fixed:

  • Battlefield 1: Fixed mip map generation for typeless images and related Vulkan validation errors
  • Battlefield 3: Fixed white and black blocks appearing on the screen
  • Diablo 3: Fixed character lighting issue (#370)
  • Dirt 4: Implemented missing pixel shader feature, fixed Vulkan validation errors (#395)
  • Far Cry 5: Fixed missing visual effects and visual issues during LOD transitions (#344)
  • Frostpunk: Fixed Vulkan validation errors
  • Grim Dawn: Reduced CPU overhead
  • Witcher 3: Fixed visual issue during LOD transitions

See the release notes here.

By the time I eventually get around to trying it, I imagine I'm going to be absolutely amazed by it. It's really fun to watch the progress from afar.

yar4eYou use very old NVIDIA driver. This may be the reason of bad performance. For DXVK 394.24.02 is recommended.

I'm hesitant about Beta drivers but I went ahead and tried it, no changes for this game.

396.18.0 is very bad choice actually! This version have performance regressions with DXVK. Try latest version from here: https://developer.nvidia.com/vulkan-driver

Thanks for the link, it may help with other games but with this one won't budge. So far the driver is working fine with everything else.

robiniseenbanaanDoes this fix the system freezes in bf1? About once every hour it crashes my system, often in the same areas when it's rendering parts of the map.
Are you able to play multiplayer in BF1 or is it restricted to single player only ?
