Thanks for this. I'll make sure to test it tonight and get back with feedback. It would be great if we could run the game natively with decent performance. :)

Later edit: Yup. It works. :D

I simplified the process and uploaded the specific file you need so all people have to do it's just extract this file into the dying light folder.

Quoting: GuestDying Light works without problem on Linux through Steam Play.
How do you start it through Steam Play?

edit: jfc...nevermind. Somehow I wasn't in the steam beta :/

The Bronx workaround works for Dead Island Definitive Edition as well.

Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
Radeon RX Vega 56
OpenGL core profile version string: 4.5
LLVM 7.0.0
Mesa 18.2.8

also works for me on DIDE
i have DIDE riptide installed with proton

both games use the same engine. performance seems also the same, native and proton
only thing i noticed is, that the GPU fan spins around 2700rpm on native and 2100rpm on proton

Hi,

This fix does not work for me, using 18.04 LTS Intel i7 8565U and the Intel HD Graphics (3x8 Whisky Lake GT2). It just hangs the entire X11 environment and requires a hard reset. If I remove the file suggested by @Bronx, DY crashes as soon a the white progress bar completes. I am using the X-SWAT PPA and the <MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.5 MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=450 %command%> in the "Set Game Launch Options"

I've filed a ticket and sent them all the relevant files.

/CH

------------------------------------------------------
EDIT: I fixed it. I downloaded and compiled this shim: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107990#c8
Also, is an explanation why the MESA causes the game to fail on launch.

Interesting, how is the performance on your igpu?
