I've been feeding my addiction with WoW Classic....under wine-staging with DXVK

so it's a sword fighting game, then, is it?

The FOSS strategy game 0 A.D. seems to be coming along very nicely

shawnsterpSo I see a Driving Force GT for a decent price used. I'm not really a racing fanatic, but it seems like this could be cool, and I do have a few racing sims that I could dust off. Are these things worth it? Do they work well with steam? Do they work well with steam LINK?

i have a Logitech g29....it works great with dirt rally and dirt 4 through steam. with proton games it seems to be rather hit and miss, depending on the game and the developer. it also works well in games runnimg under wine-staging, but again is hit and miss depending on the game and developer.

since we're requesting stats we'd like added, i think some storage media stats would be interesting(at least they would be to me): type(ssd, pcie nvme, hdd, floppy(ok, not really on the floppy )), amount(GB,TB,PB),RAID(0,1,5,10,:hardware HBA, mobo fakeraid, linux software raid, LVM).

then i could brag aboit the Areca 1231-ML 12 port raid hba i'm phasing out with m.2 pcie nvme sticks

Quake II RTX released with a demo along and the source code

slaapliedje<snip>
I tried to tell it where my Quake II install was for the full game, but the file selector was kind of janky, so I beat the free levels already. Need to figure out how to ask me where the levels are again!
cd $STEAM_INSTALL_DIRECTORY/steamapps/common/Quake II RTX/./find-retail-paks.sh

however, it will probably still fail...failed for me.....i just copied EVERYTHING in my quake 2 install directory to the Quake II RTX directory, and skipped anything it wanted to overwrite, except pak0.pak. you WANT to overwrite pak0.pak with the one from your retail install.

khalismurHow can you use D9VK with Proton? I'd like to compare proton Skyrim vs D9VK Skyrim

download and extract the latest D9VK archive and extract it.
then perform the following commands in a terminal:


cd d9vk-0.12/

WINEPREFIX=$PATH_TO_STEAM_LIBRAY_LOCATION/steamapps/compatdata/$STEAM_APP_ID/pfx/ ./setup_dxvk.sh install


this will install d9vk into that game's specific proton prefix...running setup_dxvk.sh uninstall will revert the changes....

note that some games under proton with d9vk may exhibit behaviour that may or may not be experienced using vanilla wine/wine-staging....
Cheers for the information man!

I'd read the github page but was unsure if I could simply follow the instructions there using the wineprefix created by Proton. Thanks a lot!

aye, no worries, man...glad it was helpful to you

BielFPsI wonder when this project merge with Proton, if there will be an option to activate/deactivate between Vulkan or Opengl (for hardware not compatible with Vulkan) or if Proton will automatically detect if gpu is compatible and pick one automatically.

i'm pretty sure it tries DXVK by default....and fails to launch if no vulkan...you'll most likely have to set the PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1 %command% option on the game's properties.....i've had to do this for Bejeweled 3 ever since the second version of Proton was realeased....very first release of Proton...Bejeweled 3 launched without issue.
