WINE Game Screenshot Thread

How do you people take screenshots of DXVK/Vulkan? When I try to (using scrot) it captures either a black screen or garbage.

I tried this, and results look... strange.



"How many fingers am I holding up?"


I didn't use a timer, I created a script taking a screenshot on Scroll Lock:

1. Make a bash file with this text:
#!/bin/bash date_time_ms=$(date +%F_%T:%3N) cp "$1" /home/you/Pictures/Screenshots/Screenshot_$date_time_ms.png rm "$1"

2. Add a hotkey (in Lubuntu there's lxhotkey for that):
xfce4-screenshooter -wo /home/you/pathtoscript/

The strange thing is, scrot started to make good screenshots when I tried to use both scrot and xfce4-screenshooter .

It's not THAT slow to not be able to simply take a screenshot. It's actually is very good in multi-tasking. I think, it's the problem with Nvidia, or LigthDM, or something.

Just got The Bard's Tale remastered (part I) as a backer reward for The Bard's Tale IV. The Linux version might come in the future, but for now, here is the result in Wine+dxvk (yes, the Windows version is using DX11).

With the new Steam Play I was able to run Metal Gear Solid V the Phantom Pain with even better performance than a native box. The new Steam Play is amazing!
One click plating, unbelievable, I didn't expect it to run honestly.

Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice on Steam Play. It gets more impressive the more games I try.
