skyrim for linux?
Grim_reaper commented on 19 January 2020 at 3:03 pm UTC

I was installing Skyrim into my computer and there were 2 icons under the Skyrim headline: Opengl and Vulkan?Can someone here clarify me what does that mean? Is Skyrim built on Opengl and Vulkan in some video game machines and PC or is it mods? Or am I hoping too much?That the Skyrim will come to Linux as native?What is the possible explanation?

I have no idea where you saw that, but Skyrim is D3D9 for the original and D3D11 for the special edition. Only Wine makes it OpenGL (wined3d) or Vulkan (DXVK).

Damn I afterwards thought something like that. Still I hope that in some day I will see that Skyrim will be ported to Linux
