Mechwarrior 5 Epic Games Store performanc poor , help much appreciated
J 27 Jan

I am still struggling to get Mechwarrior 5 to run - I have the EGS version and have tried running it via lutris, performance is awful however.

Anyone have a set of setting that works better?

I am on
PopOS 20.10
Ryzen 5600x
Geforce 1650 Super

so am not expecting crazy-settings etc but should be playable

thanks for all your help!!

Define awful performance - frames per second, or seconds per frame?

I would imagine that lutris should take care of such things, but I used to run MW: Online against system wine just fine (manually installed DXVK into the prefix). A patch was required to make it start, but that should again be taken care of by lutris with whatever wine build it pulls in.

Apologies Seconds per frame.... (perhaps actually minutes per frame....)

So again from old Mechwarrior Online experience (though it should be basically the same engine as far as such things go) it sounds like DXVK isn't being loaded. I had that exact same symptom - really terribly slow framerate, but did actually load.

Try enabling DXVK_HUD (I guess just search for how that's done with lutris) to check that DXVK is actually being used. No idea what to do yet if it's not, but one step a time.
