  • 2 days good fps then 2 days bad
    If your CPU is fast enough you may benefit from using DXVK to translate the game from its native DX9 into Vulkan
  • [P] YoHa: A practical hand tracking engine.
    Let's see if I can follow the breadcrumbs, in the meantime here's proof that the maintainer at least uses the game to test: https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/319. Worth noting their picture is an Automata character, but I'm sure something more substantial has been said.
  • [Epic Games] Paladins Epic Pack and Stubbs The Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse (Free/100% Off)

    There is a way to make it work. Download dxvk from https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/releases and extract d3d11.dll and dxgi.dll from the x64 folder to your game directory. On my pc, I get another error message when I run the game, I klick Ok and the game runs.
  • FFXIV Launcher crashes when using Proton GE, but not when using the official Proton versions.

    Download DXVK from the official repo : https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/releases
  • 6800xt 50% utilization in DX9 games. the cpu is a 3600xt

    https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk is your friend.
  • DXVK improves framerate significantly in Flight Simulator 2020
    reddit.com/r/flightsim | 2021-10-14
    DXVK has been known to improve framerate and stuttering in a host of games by translating DirectX into Vulkan. MSFS is no exception, I went from ~22 fps to ~40 fps in the UK within densely packed buildings, on an i5 10400F and RTX 2060. It feels significantly smoother.
  • What’s the state of nvidia drivers in modern times?
    Every time we have these threads and people report "everything works fine for me," I have to wonder if these people even use Linux regularly on their computers. Every few months there's something new, whether it's KDE panels breaking, DXVK breaking, Firefox breaking repeatedly, Wayland still not working acceptably, PRIME not being supported for years, still not being supported on older PRIME hardware, Reverse PRIME only just recently being supported with the most recent driver (and even then it still doesn't work right)
  • What I have learned this past year working as a Wine/Proton hacker
  • So I decided to get back into BL2 modding and it made me realize something.
  • Really bad performance all around in Proton
    It's most likely due to Southern Islands cards (R9 270, 270X, 280, 280X, R7 240, 250, 250X, 265, and R5 240) not being able to use Vulkan by default (see this for some info to get started) which is necessary for dxvk. Dxvk is what allows most Windows games to run with acceptable performance by translating D3D9, D3D10, and D3D11 to Vulkan.
  • Stuttering in FFXIV, anyone know of a fix?
    Yeah, known issue on Nvidia, see https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/2210 (workaround included).
  • Using DXVK with Project Beautification ENB
    reddit.com/r/GTAIV | 2021-10-10
    It is a known issue https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/1831 Try DXVK 1.9 or 1.9.1 (not the latest one) with or without dxgi.dll on vanilla game with empty commandline.txt. You may also experiment with older game versions. I received reports from people who had problems with DXVK on 2020CE that somehow disappeared after downgrade.
  • FPS Issues for Saints Row 2
    reddit.com/r/SaintsRow | 2021-10-09
    Try out dxvk, it moves the rendering over to Vulkan. I've seen videos where it massively increased people's framerates, but it can cause crashing if the game doesn't like your hardware (like mine unfortunately lol).
  • Game crashes on first loading screen
