Nier Automata

So first of all i dont know if this is the right Category to ask this so sorry if wrong.

And to my question: On windows at least i hear all the time that to play this game "correctly" you need the "FAR" mod. But i also heard that the things which the mod should fix? are working correctly on Linux. So yeah anyone knows what is correct? I think i dont need to explain the FAR mod for Nier Automata players but in short it says without the Resolution is bugged? Or wont go higher than 900p or something like that while the FAR mod is fixing that which means you can play it in true 1080p or 4k and such.

Category is right, though there already is a Nier Automata thread here: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/forum/topic/2944

Hmm, Nier was the show case for DXVK to be developed. I would be surprised if it wasn't fixed on that level back then.
To me at least it looks like proper 1080p on my PC.

Here is the answer you are looking for:

FAR stands for: Fix Automata Resolution. This is a problem that does not exist under Linux. However, the FAR mod has been extended a lot over time. Maybe you want to use it also under Linux. I never tested it:

I play Automata on my Nvidia system (GTX 970). The performance is not great but the most annoying are the micro-stutters. I have to set everything to low and it still stutters. Still playable but on AMD hardware it must run much better. Therefore I will wait with the play through until I have a new graphics card (big navi). I think we can live without the FAR mod then. Although I never tried the FAR mod. I'm glad that Automata runs at least stable on my Nvidia hardware.
