Disclaimer: I am terrible at this game. A few people have been asking me what my uncapped framerate is. Most of the time I have VSync on because I don't like tearing. Decided to do a video with vsync off. This is after my state cache has been generated for most of the multiplayer maps, hence why it's much smoother than my previous video. Settings as usual: Wine-Staging 3.21 DXVK Esync on Threadripper 1950x ASUS Strix Vega 64 Kernel 4.20-rc4 Mesa-git + LLVM-svn

How did you get Origin to install or run? It crashes when I try it on Wine 3.21. Seems to be a problem with QT. Looking at the WineDB page for Origin, it seems I am not alone in that.

tkg 3.21 build with multi-core commit reverted, unsure if this fixed origin but reverting that commit fixed a lot of things for me: 1312c6642851d4a0c5de9a71c824800935f96691 git revert --no-commit 1312c6642851d4a0c5de9a71c824800935f96691

+GloriousEggroll Thanks for the tip. I've cloned the wine git repository, rejected that commit that you mentioned, and followed the instructions at winehq for how to build Wine with both 32-bit and 64-bit support through WoW. I suspect there must be other compile time options that I just don't know about, however, as it doesn't seem to be able to run anything. I get errors about Wine being built without Vulkan support just trying to run the Origin installer. Do you remember which flags you used when building Wine? Was there a guide somewhere you followed?

+Tbird761 for me the precompiled wine runner tkg-protonified 3.21 also works in lutris. I used the default build flags for wine-staging-git on the Arch AUR for my personal build. Note: it does take a short few seconds for origin to load, it shows a white screen for about 30s or so before

+GloriousEggroll Good news, it's running now. Thanks again for helping me out with this. The rest of this is for anyone who comes across this post in the future with a similar problem. I added the WineHQ repo to my sources.list for apt and installed winehq-staging for Debian buster. This yielded the official build of 3.21-staging. I then installed dxvk, msxml3, msxml4, msxml6, and vcrun2013 in a fresh win64 wine prefix for Origin using the latest winetricks. The Origin thin client installer managed to run at that point. Battlefield 1 singleplayer also ran. The download hasn't finished so I haven't tried multiplayer yet, but I suspect it will run also. It's kind of stuttery, but it works. I'm using Mesa 18.3.0-rc5 from Debian Experimental on a Vega 64. I run Debian testing (currently Buster ie 10.0) otherwise. Mesa 18.3.0 required me to pull in libc6 and related libs from Debian Unstable. It's a little bit Frankendebian-ish, but not too much at this point.

+Chris Caswell it should run fine, I ran it on a 2400g with an rx 570 on high settings. also try antergos, its closer to vanilla arch and is easy to install. I even have my dad using it

GloriousEggroll Why Antergos over Manjaro? Manjaro's user-base seems to be exploding. Are there any particular benefits one has over the other? Could you just do everything for me over TeamViewer if I throw $20 at your Patreon? 🤔

+Chris Caswell because Antergos is more compatible with AUR packages and gpu drivers on the AUR. It's basically vanilla arch with an extra repo added for antergos configs and aesthetics. It has an installer like Manjaro, it's very easy.

manjaro tends to confuse users who follow vanilla arch guides because their gpu driver install setup is much different

Battlefield V does not have a native Vulkan API renderer. It uses Direct X 11. Linux has a replacement for DX11 called DXVK, which takes DX11 API calls and translates them into Vulkan API calls. So yes, I am playing the game in Vulkan, but not natively.

install Lutris https://lutris.net/downloads/ install wine-staging and install needed dependancies https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki/Wine-Dependencies also install Vulkan for DXVK (Directx 11-> Vulkan) https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki/How-to:-DXVK then click install https://lutris.net/games/battlefield-4/ if you have a problem ask on Lutris's forum

hey what is amdgpu and amdgpu-pro? Can I install them on Ryzen 5 2400G? Do I get more FPS if install amdgpu because i only installed mesa

let me clear up some confusion for you: amdgpu is part of mesa. the open source driver stack is made up of mesa and llvm, which contain the amdgpu open source driver. they are installed by default in any linux distro out of the box. generally for AMD and intel gpus, this is the driver you want to use (mesa comes with an open source intel driver also). amdgpu-pro is AMD's closed source driver, which often gives lower performance compared to the open source amdgpu driver. you should not use this driver unless you need something specific from it. amdgpu comes with RADV - the open source vulkan driver amdgpu-pro comes with AMDVLK - the closed source AMD vulkan driver.

Kudos for Valve for acknowledging Wine but this game sucks. No soldier ever run forward with disregard to his life knowing he'll just spawn back in a bit, no army has an unlimited number of soldiers, no recruit after basic training ever shoot that accurately. Seriously, 5 seconds of play, 15 seconds of wait, repeat. What normal person enjoys that?

If you don't know any other kind of multiplayer shooters then yes but I encourage you to broaden your horizons. There are ways to incentivize staying alive and working as a team in shooters like this.

Nice. Good thing punkbuster sucks. Games like sandstorm and Apex run great in linux as well however you can't play apex anymore and limited to community servers without Easy Anti Cheat. EAC just shits itself. I reached out to EAC and they said they are working with Valve on getting it working since steamplay and proton are pretty damn good recently.
