Vulkan layer for Direct3D 11 & Wine 'DXVK' updated with fixes for Dark Souls 3, Overwatch & more
13 May 2018 at 6:47 pm UTC

The developer behind DXVK probably has a ton of great job offers in his mailbox already I imagine.

evergreencan somebody tell me if dxvk is good enough for buying far cry 5 and playing with it?
I don't have FarCry5 myself to test, but from what I heard from Xpander, it runs really well under DXVK at the moment. I'll link him here so he could provide more info.

I don't usually dig these types of games, however the setting looks too good to pass up. I'll be waiting.

"I love DRM free games!" - Just putting it out there... you know.

Wine 3.5 is out with their own Vulkan loader and plenty of fixes for games

zebHas anyone tried to run the Vulkan version of Doom 2016? It starts, but at the very beginning, during the Bethesda logo video, image stutters and freezes. I am using Arch, 64-bit, with a 64-bit wine prefix.
Doom has pretty much been working via Wine since its release. As it supports Vulkan API by default, there is no need for DXVK or similar as Linux GPU drivers natively support Vulkan anyway. Haven't tested it with wine3.x though, but I doubt they have broken it.
The last I tried it was with wine2.3-staging and it worked right out of the box with a fresh wineprefix - if the new one gives you trouble, you could try it with this older wine version.

Point & click horror game 'Without Escape' to have Linux support, launching April 24th

Looks like something up my alley - will definitely give this one a go.
I wish the game also had 21:9 support, however the lacking of it is understandable due to the pre-rendered nature of the product:

Witcher3 performance as per my testing seems to be around 1fps worse in comparisson with wine3.4... but that's, yeah, nothing to talk about.
CSMT pulls the performance down by 5-8fps for me, so just a clean wineprefix only with dxvk seems to have the best performance.

Also, some items in the game are missing still - like Kikimore eggs, they're invisible... it's fun trying to burn invisible items with Igni.

Silly racing game Foreveracers is now out on Steam, it's pretty good

This game looks like a tech demo for Big Rigs, sorry.

Can you hear that? It's the Steam sales train and it's arrived, also Steam Wishlist revamp
16 February 2018 at 6:14 am UTC

Oh no, with the wishlist revamp, they also removed old games from it which were no longer available on Steam... used to have Divinity 2: Ego Draconis saga there as a reminder... well, it's all just in my head now.
