Windows games experience on Linux, how smooth or playable are they?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 1 Stunde 1 Minute

I've heard of Wine, Proton, lutris and more tools that I need to bring the gaming environment to Linux. Most game that I currently have been Windows games but most of them are either native on Linux or playable on Linux but due to my internet being slow and limited, It won't be feasible to re-download all the games, so someone told me to use lutris to play them.

Now I have tried to play around with lutris on a VM, the VM was really slow, but it got the job done and the game worked, but it was unplayable due to the VM being slow, so I couldn't test it. I fear that after I switch from windows to Linux, I'll have a worse experience playing these games.

Is playing those games smooth? Is there any alternative to Lutris that may be faster? I apologize if the questions seem extremely simple or the issue is self-explanatory, but It's my first time to hear of these tools and my first experience with Linux in general. (I'll be using Pop_OS! if that helps)

World of Warcraft FPS drops

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 1 Stunde 52 Minuten


Has anyone experienced very high FPS drops when a ‘talking head’ appears? With ‘talking head’ I mean the box that appears when an NPC is talking to you in dungeons etc. As soon as I close it, my FPS returns to normal.

I installed wow through Lutris and have already tried different GE builds without success.

I’m running MicroOS but experienced this before on other distro’s as well.

It’s very annoying to the point that I can’t play wow on linux anymore.

Fullscreen Upscaling in OpenMW

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 4 Stunden 5 Minuten

Hey. So, I recently moved to KDE from GNOME and I usually play OpenMW on 720p fullscreen (My monitor's res is 1080p). It worked fine in Gnome (Wayland) but reverts back to 1080p automatically in KDE + Kwin (Wayland) and Hyprland (Windowed works fine on both). I Tried using X11, but there's no 720p fullscreen option - only 1080p and 4:3 resolutions.

My GPU is Intel HD 610 and am currently on latest stable Arch.

Thanks. Any help is appreciated.

Hey, so when i run anything through Gamescope, there's this weird artifacting / glitching throughout the screen. There's no notable error in the log too. This seems to happen regardless of Desktop Environment and Wayland / X11.

Controller mapping in Scarlet Nexus very janky (Lutris)

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 5 Stunden 28 Minuten

As the title says, the game is acting very strangely with a controller (Dualsense) in Lutris. None of the buttons seem to be mapped to anything, a direction is constantly being held down (making just quitting the game via a menu difficult) and one of the stick directions seems to be mapped to the cancel button.

For reference, Scarlet Nexus is the only game Lutris is doing this with, other games work perfectly fine with a controller. The Steam version of the game doesn't have this problem either.

Is there anything I can do to fix my controller here in Lutris? I've tried wired and bluetooth, changing/closing Steam input, as well as enabling "Autoconfigure joypads" in the config, to no avail.

Game developers and publishers that support Linux

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 9 Stunden 5 Minuten

I think we should have an updated list of game developers and publishers that support Linux. There was an old thread from 5 years ago.


The rules should be that it's a native linux version and they released multiple games for linux, especially in recent times(1-2 yrs).

Klei Entertainment


Frictional Games

Paradox Interactive

Kalypso Media

I've tried lunching the game with the same files on Windows and It works fine.

Any possible solutions?

Sekiro heavy lags when moving out of location.

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 12 Stunden 1 Minute

Hello! I'm using linux for some time most of the games I play, I can figure out myself how to run without many problems. Sekiro is problematic for me. Firstly I had white screen which I solved. Now I'm having heavy drop of fps on loading screen(doesn't matter for me), when I'm getting out from for example dilapidated temple. It drops from constant 60 to around 9 for +/- 5 secs. Does anyone knows how to fix it? I ran dxvk_hud to see if something is wrong and I saw massive increase of shaders, when it happens. I tried already DXVK_ASYNC=1, disabling esync and fsync, restricting cores, changing graphical settings, and setting high prio of my gpu. Nothing helped. Thanks in advance for help!

Trouble with Steam Library and Mod Organizer 2 for Fallout 4 modding on Ubuntu 22.04.1

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 12 Stunden 18 Minuten

So the state of things currently is that I have the .tar.gz file and I just extracted the contents. I've done all the other necessary stuff like installed Fallout 4 and downloaded this thing called protontricks. The next step would be to just run ./install.sh and that runs the installer. However, the thing is that I have Steam downloaded on my main m.2 drive, however, most of my games go into my secondary SSD. I have it all sorted on Steam correctly, but this installer doesn't seem to be able to find Fallout 4 regardless?? This is the error I get: ERROR: could not find any Steam library containing a game with appid '377160'. If you known exactly where the library is, you can specify it using the environment variable STEAM_LIBRARY . Okay so I'm not very familiar with Linux or bash or whatever, I'm completely out of my element. I tried every which way to set this environment variable, and tried to Googling it, but couldn't find any fix to this. I'm also not exactly sure which file location (if any??) I'm supposed to be setting it to. Anyway, I tried it doing simply: STEAM_LIBRARY='~/media/{user}/Games & Media' and also: export STEAM_LIBRARY='~/media/{user}/Games & Media' . And also maybe a couple other file locations, I'm unsure. I even checked to make sure the variable was set using printenv STEAM_LIBRARY . I don't know. Is it obvious I'm completely lost? I don't know what to do, I just want it to work :(

Just added the linux build to our new demo! Any story-heavy RPG fans here that would like to test it?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - vor 12 Stunden 51 Minuten

Actually, we build the game with unity, and there were some bugs in linux that we needed to fix. Hopefully, we caught them all.

As an indie developer, this takes a lot of time, and I understand that many devs don't go the extra mile to support linux with native builds.

The game's demo is available here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1515020/Kingsblood/
