Avehicle7887I'm hoping to see some of the FAudio features in Wine next year.

However meanwhile can use kron4ek git and works for wine 32/64

Installation is similar to dxvk

mrdeathjrIn this proton version

.........

Lego Harry Potter 1-4....

...has been working since WINE 1.4, and probably still suffers from the random crash-to-desktop at the end of story 1.
Also, some of you may need to put "unset LC_ALL && %command%" in the launch options or it will fail to save.


Curiously in my case save without issues and pass 1st stage without issues too

Proton have various improvements compared regular wine, various titles stay more stable than vanilla wine

Some thoughts on Linux gaming in 2018, an end of year review
19 December 2018 at 6:45 pm UTC

Thanks to ethan lee for FAudio

With lastest wine staging is interesting try FAudio for courtesy of Kron4ek reddit user

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaguTYa0S9E

Respect video have tested some titles using wine64 case:

Begins with tales of berseria this game dont sound correctly if use default wine pulse but with faudio pulse dont give troubles in tests

Followed by darksiders 3, show bad sound with default xaudio wine implementation (darksiders warmaster also affected) and dont possible recording with correct audio by this

And finish with ultimate marvel vs capcom 3, another title with missed sounds with default xaudio wine implementation

Him put avalaible Faudio build and seems him compiled with ffmpeg support, more about in this topic

Quotehttps://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gamin...ilds_for_wine/

This is some fragments cited by this user:

QuoteThe easiest way is to use "wine_setup_native" script from the archive. Just set WINEPREFIX variable to your Wine prefix path and then execute that script, like this:

export WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine" ./wine_setup_native
And if it's already usable, why didn't Wine upstream it yet?

It's quite usable, but there are some unimplemeted features. I suppose, that's why it's not in upstream yet.


VK9, the project that aims to support Direct3D 9 over Vulkan has hit another milestone
17 December 2018 at 8:39 pm UTC

johndoe86x
jens
Comandante ÑoñardoI wish Valve support this...

This project can give Proton the proper retro compatibility/performance for heavy weight DX9 games.

Are there any heavy weight DX9 games?

There are a ton of them.

It was the de facto API before DX11, but the biggest one that comes to mind is the original Skyrim.
wvstolzingAs already mentioned, loads of Triple AiAiAi (hat tip to Jim Sterling) games run on dx9, even those that came out after dx10 became available.

Assassin's Creed 1 has a dx10 mode and a dx9 fallback; but the next 3 games in the series are all dx9. GTA IV + its expansion packs are also dx9.

Yeah wine / proton actual dx9 implementation is very heavy specially with various unreal engine 3 games, need for speed hot pursuit 2010, skyrim vanilla and many others

Normally this games dont use more than 2 cores at max (in some rare cases use more cores but are few compared with regular dx9 titles)

For before reason ryzen dont work good with this type of games, for this reason have core i3 8350K 5.0ghz / 215 single thread cinebench r15

Without forget i put more attention on older titles than newer because older titles lack of tests compared newer games

Another thing high single thread cpu in this games give better fps min
