The Witcher 3 in Wine

So, apparently a company called Saber Interactive ported TW3 to Swich (which means native Vulkan renderer).

I've actually never been to Kaer Almhult before, and wondered about what I saw in one of the cells. Small guy, with possibly different-coloured eyes (hard to see ofc). Sure enough, the wiki has it

ShmerlI've seen some whales too. And I've heard there is supposed to be The Flying Dutchman somewhere.

You mean this?

Yep, that's the one, but I haven't seen it myself yet.

Me neither. Have to be at the right place and at the right moment. Saw whales once or twice and the one with the bard, in the Sunstone Quest, but I guess it doesn't count.

Not seen nor heard about the Flying Dutchman, and it looks like you have to basically know about it to come across it. Pretty cool easter egg, though.

So after playing for a while (75 Hrs) and even though I reached Skellige, I been having some problems.

Sometimes a cut-scene happens or there's too much detail to render (like in the forest for example) sometime I get what I can only describe as a GPU crash (loss of video signal, the fans start to spin faster, the audio continues but I can't Ctrl+Alt+F4, requiring me to force shutdown the system)

I started to force the fan speed to 80% with Radeon-profile before starting the game but even so, sometimes still happens.

I recently upgraded my PSU from an EVGA 500 BT to a Corsair CX750M, believing that it was maybe my RX580 was not getting sufficient power.

I have read the game has apparently memory leaks, is that a thing?

Has anyone else played the game thru Lutris? I can't really run it via Steam as I don't use it.

I apologize if I posted this in the wrong section, it's just that I want to continue playing this game, and want to heard if anyone had the same problems.

I'm playing TW3 (GOG version) using Wine with esync patches + dxvk. I don't really use Lutris in general. It works very well. I haven't noticed memory leaks really.

Haven't noticed such issues either, and I have a GTX 770 card. If you have the GOG version, I would recommend to install using this script: https://www.gog.com/forum/the_witcher_3_wild_hunt/the_witcher_3_for_linux/page1

I believe it's basically what shmerl mentioned, but everything is set up for you, so no need to muck about with stuff yourself. It runs very well on my end.

PS: You may also want to download and install this package of packages (heh): https://www.dropbox.com/s/r7w90qyhp7n6197/common-libs-meta.deb?dl=0. It is made by the author of the script, and has packages that are usually needed for running games on Linux. Maybe you lack something here, and that is what causes the problem?

Interesting find: Reverse engineering the rendering of The Witcher 3.
