Quoting: amataiI had the same problem playing with wine 2 years ago. It was solved by buying the game on steam and using proton. But maybe someone here has a more satisfying answer.
Weird. I have no idea what's going on. The day before yesterday (after posting on the forum) I tried to use proton (using the option of adding a non-steam game to the steam and turning on steam play for it) and it worked (after a little tinkering due to a bug ) and there were no crashes (although I didn't play that long). I only experienced some micro stuttering. Yesterday I tried again the combination wine 5.0 + dxvk 1.5.5 and... also there were no crashes.



Update a few days later: I stayed with the proton because it turned out to be crash-free (unlike other setups).

Just tought about a difference when the game is run with Proton vs Windows... When played on Windows, during the Possession quest, when you speak with the possessed Jarl Udalryk, you can see the Hym shadow on the wall and floor. With Proton, there is nothning to tell you that there is an error, but the shadow is not visible. Really small detail here, but still a missing feature, it seems... On Nvidia at least, for me.

If you think it's dxvk problem, you can make a Vulkan capture with Renderdoc for them and report a bug.

Thanks... Will take a look. I'm not really familiar with all these debugging/reporting tools.

Poor me, I guess I'll have to start a 5th run, then... The world is so unfair!

Pretty sure that was present in the playthroughs I did, but then I didn't use shteam's proton (they can FOAD, with DRM and all). It's been a while since I played the game now, but I know I saw that shadow on the wall, also while talking to Udalryk I think.

Excellent game in any case. Shame it seems like they dropped the ball a bit on CP2077.

Also, since you've played through it 4 times already, I can recommend to try out the Ghost Mode mod. It changes especially the combat a lot, and for the better I'd say. It makes it more challenging, and I had a lot of fun with it. Really well-done mod.

The last run I did was a couple of months ago... I paid special attention to that shadow... When Udalryk raises his arms, while speaking to you, you should see the Hym doing the same, on the wall behind him, but no, it wasn't there. Anyway, it might be a problem depending on the Proton version used... I think I'll create a save point at this special spot and test different versions of Proton. Who knows, it might be solved with the latest builds?

Looked through a lot of pictures, because at this time I was still working on the wiki, but sadly only found this one.

Yep... Weird, but this one is always fine.
