    Phoronix: The Latest Winevulkan Patches Make It Usable For Doom, Wolfenstein & DXVK

    Roderick Colenbrander and those working with him on "Winevulkan" to provide a clean Vulkan implementation for Wine supporting the Vulkan ICD concept, etc, rather than the old hacked together code in Wine-Staging have done a great job. With Roderick's latest Winevulkan patches, this new implementation is considered usable...

    Sharing sure is caring:
    AMD creates Mantle -> Valve creates group because AMD creates a possible theory (low level API) -> AMD shares specifications of Mantle to Khronos -> Vulkan API is created -> Vulkan projects starts new cool projects (Vulkan for wine) -> present day where Vulkan helps us by replacing OpenGL (not entirely.. but most of it).

    Of course The Big thanks goes to the people behind the projects (That I don't know).

            It's not just that if you are on 64-bit...

            But if you use Arch or related, there's an AUR paxkage: wine-vulkan-git

              The reason I ask is because Im getting 'vkcreateinstance Failure' asking if I have ICD installed. when
              Code:
              wine cube.exe
              .
              Oh, uh, using Kepler GPU, propietary.
              I don't really know what you are talking about, but this sounds like a register key. Did you try with wine's regedit?

                  Christ.
                  Ok, try this: build latest wine from git, make sure you/your package manager builds for 32 and 64 bit windows.

                  Get latest winetricks from its github, install the sdk

                  get eclipse editor and create a new .json project, paste the code, name it winevulkan.json put in wineprefix/drive_c/windows

                  start regedit and go to the directories instructed, you might have to create subdirectory 'Drivers', create new dword value, name it c:\windows\winevulkan.info, give it value zero, same for 32 bit,

                  now try wine cube.exe, im getting a white square

                    It is correct that you are seeing a white screen. My latest patches have not been merged yet. If lucky they get merged today else for the time being use wine-vulkan. BTW just a simple text editor is enough to create the json file.
