I’ve already done that in Lutris. Currently my install works using wine 6.14 staging (last time I looked, but wine got updated so probably is a newer version). I tried both lutris versions and none worked, but wine staging works and I can notice the dxvk/vulkan working.
What Im interested in doing is to enable dxvk in my linux launcher, to see if I can get the same performance that I get with Lutris. My Linux launcher installer is not running with dxvk currently, and thus it uses a lot more cpu than the Lutris install (5 clients under linux launcher… I get over 70% cpu usage, and it gets noticeable slower when doing mundane things, whereas with the Lutris one I get 55% cpu usage tops, and its superbly playable. The problem with the linux launcher is that the ALT key gets stuck a lot, when alt tabbing between clients, and this is another advantage that the Lutris option has, I alt tab without worries.
I also have a eve running thru steam (3 separate game folders if you are keeping tabs), and it worked for 2 or 3 days, then something happened before the launcher update and stopped working. I havent tried the custom proton, but so far I find the instructions sort of obscure
So, its not a matter of trying or being afraid to break things. I just wanted to get better performance on the linux launcher which clearly doesnt have dxvk enabled. The only other install I’m yet to try is the windows installer but thru wine. I’m only running this one thru Lutris, but with their dxvk/esync old launcher and on Steam with proton.
So, would… /home/user/.eve be the folder or do I have to put the path to the eve.exe (inside wineenv)?
Thanks for your patience and help.
