Wine 3.5 is out with their own Vulkan loader and plenty of fixes for games

Posted by , | Views: 14,123

The Wine development team has just put out Wine 3.5, continuing to advance their official Vulkan support.

Here's the highlights:

  • More Vulkan support, including the vulkan-1 loader.
  • Support for RSA and ECDSA cryptographic keys.
  • Improved manifest file parser.
  • Support for the Places toolbar in file dialogs.
  • Various bug fixes.

In previous builds of Wine, to get Vulkan working properly you had to do some manual work. Now that's not the case, as they've put in their own minimal Vulkan loader.

In regards to bug fixes, they noted 58 fixed up until this release. These include problems sorted in games like Empire Earth, Age of Mythology, Battlefield 3, Starcraft 2, The Witcher 3 and more.

DXVK works fine, as I was playing ESO using dxvk, no idea on space engineers yet, but I'll give it a try asap.

A tutorial for installing DXVK on Lutris would be great. I've tried it but im dumb.

Oh c'mon. That's not the reason. I've not tried it, but I'm pretty sure that shit is hard.

You can start with a pre-existing DXVK script. For example, I just installed Mass Effect: Andromeda using the Lutris script (uses DXVK).

I heard there is a vulnerability in RSA and it should be switched away from. Of course for WINE compatibility it makes sense to have it no matter what.
