  • vkd3d-proton

    Fork of VKD3D. Development branches for Proton's Direct3D 12 implementation.

    With Vicky, it's really simple. Get the latest version of this. Drop the dll file from the x64 folder into the Vicky binaries folder next to the exe. Alternatively, use this one. That second one is made by some guy with a youtube video, so maybe prefer the first. Shoulddddd still be safe, but no promises I guess. For me, that was enough, but if that doesn't work alone, try grabbing all the files from this and dropping them in the binaries folder as well. Sometimes you need the dxgi dll in particular.

  • dxvk

    Vulkan-based implementation of D3D9, D3D10 and D3D11 for Linux / Wine
