The DXVK team have released another new version of their Direct 3D 9/10/11 to Vulkan translation layer with 1.5.2 now available.

Firstly an important note: It requires more up to date drivers again, as they've upped the requirements to Vulkan 1.1 support. A good time to go and check, Vulkan 1.1 has been supported in both NVIDIA and Mesa driver for quite some time now so it really shouldn't be an issue. Why did they up the Vulkan version used? They said the "Vulkan 1.0 fallback path was largely untested and did not always work correctly" and it allowed some code cleaning.

As for what's new, on the Direct 3D 9 support side, they added in some "missing D3D9 swap chain functionality" so more games should run including ATi ToyShop demo, Atelier Sophie and Dynasty Warriors 7. There's also some Direct 3D 9 bug fixes and "minor performance and memory optimizations" so it should run Windows games a bit smoother now.

Multiple other games should also work better with Wine+DXVK and Proton including: Dragon Age Origins, Entropia Universe, Ferentus/Herrcot/Xiones, Gothic 3, Tales of Vesperia, TrackMania United Forever, Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines and Warriors Orochi 4.

See the release notes.

I didn't get Dead of Alive 5 to work properly with steam play. Is there any special tweak to run it?

Hi i use wine 32bit for most dx9 games, 32bit prefix works better with wmf redistributables, devenum.dll (native) - quartz.dll (native) and others

This days can add new videos (doa 5 is one of them) but for now stay very busy encoding and uploading

"minor performance and memory optimizations" for DX9.....
Whats that mean? Can Borderlands: The pre-sequel be played with UHD textures without crashing?

There were some Gothic related changes past release, so try dxvk master.

Apparently some community patch makes Gothic 3 run like shit on wine or dxvk (dunno which of the two is the culprit).
