my gpu doesn't have vulkan so i wanted to know if there's a way to tell wine to use dx9? ive used winetricks to install d3dx9_43 but its seems like wine 4.0.2 keeps trying to use direct x 11 or something along the lines of.

i've run into this tool that says it can remove dxvk from a wine prefix but trying to install that tool causes so many dependency errors.


heres the tool below:
https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/di ... tup.1.html

for users that have older GPU's, is there any way to tell wine not to try using newer directx features like vulkan? Even the -opengl suffix to a launch command doesn't seem to be able to get past the direct x errors.

DXVK isn’t installed by default you would have to have installed it into the prefix yourself via the DXVK script or via winetricks.

You can uninstall DXVK using the script provided on the DXVK GitHub https://raw.githubusercontent.com/doits ... up_dxvk.sh
