      It didn't work for me. Tried SDL_VIDEODRIVER and combining with LD_PRELOAD'ing sdl2 libs from my system. Doesn't launch on Wayland and there is no error output.

      Switching to Xorg it launches fine using RADV, I get between 90-120 fps on Extreme 1440p on a Radeon 6800. (Also using gamemode and mangohud and latest mesa git).

        Just to be sure- you tried "SDL_VIDEODRIVER=x11"?

          As others mentioned, it's working really well with my AMD GPU (RX 580). The crash that Michael is getting is probably related to the Mesa rc he is using.

            I don't think you can do RTX under OpenGL, so I'm betting Vulkan.

                Launching the game with "-benchmark" and the related arguments leads to... just a blank screen.

                  It's not on GOG yet, I wonder if they'll have a 78GB ".sh" file for the installer? That's one fat game.

                    Anyway we can implement Ray-Tracing into AMDGPU Mesa drivers for those that aren't using RDNA2? WINK WINK

                      I'm using X11 with RADV (mesa 21.0.2) in a AMD RX480 and the game is working fine, without any finetune, so maybe this is really some problem with a feature in newer cards
