  • PlayOnLinux

    Free Mac Linux BSD Wine FreeBSD Website

    PlayOnLinux (PlayOnMac at ) is a tool to help Linux (and Mac) users run games and programs for Windows on Linux (or Mac, FreeBSD), via the use of (as a front-end for) Wine. Few games are compatible at the moment and it certainly is a factor preventing the migration to this system. PlayOnLinux brings an accessible and efficient solution to this problem, cost-free and respectful of the free software.

  • VK9

    Free Mac Windows Linux Website

    VK9 (Formerly SchaeferGL).
    Runs Direct3D 9 applications on Windows or Linux (/w Wine) over Vulkan.


  • Direct3D 9-to-11

    Free Mac Windows Linux Website

    This project is an attempt to convert Direct3D 9 programs to Direct3D 11. It reimplements the d3d9.dll, which contains the core D3D9 interfaces.

    Most D3D9 games are CPU limited on modern PCs, since GPU power increased exponentially while CPUs fell behind. Furthermore, most (old) games lack multithreading support, draining the CPU resource even more.

    This project uplifts the games D3D9 graphics API calls to D3D11.

    Note: the project is currently under heavy development. Currently, it is not capable of running real games. You are welcome to build and test it yourself if you want to.

    Important: this project should be used together with DXVK, which would then translate D3D11 to Vulkan. Without DXVK, this project will probably not provide any performance improvement, more likely will degrade performance.


  • Proton

    Free Mac Linux Steam Website

    Proton is a tool for use with the Small Steam iconSteam client which allows games which are exclusive to Windows to run on Small Linux kernel iconLinux kernel and Small macOS iconmacOS operating systems. It uses Small Wine iconWine to facilitate this.

    Most users will prefer to use Proton provided by the Steam client itself. The source code is provided to enable advanced users the ability to alter Proton. For example, some users may wish to use a different version of Wine with a particular title.

    Getting Started with Proton from Steam Play
    Make sure you are opted into the Steam Client Beta!
    Proton requires graphics drivers that are more recent than what is typically packaged in most distributions; please read the list of requirements and quickstart for Ubuntu 18.04 users:
    Install and play games! Please refer to this post for more information:

  • DXVK

    Free Linux Wine Website

    A Vulkan-based translation layer for Direct3D 10/11 which allows running 3D applications on Linux using Wine.

    For the current status of the project, please refer to the project wiki.

    How to use
    In order to install a DXVK package obtained from the release page into a given wine prefix, run the following commands from within the DXVK directory:

    export WINEPREFIX=/path/to/.wine-prefix
    winetricks --force setup_dxvk.verb
    This will copy the DLLs into the system32 and syswow64 directories of your wine prefix and set up the required DLL overrides. Pure 32-bit prefixes are also supported.

    Verify that your application uses DXVK instead of wined3d by checking for the presence of the log files d3d11.log and dxgi.log in the application's directory, or by enabling the HUD (see notes below).

    Build instructions
    wine 3.10 or newer
    Meson build system (at least version 0.43)
    MinGW64 compiler and headers (requires threading support)
    glslang compile
    Building DLLs
    The simple way
    Inside the DXVK directory, run:

    ./ master /your/target/directory --no-package
    This will create a folder dxvk-master in /your/target/directory, which contains both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of DXVK, which can be set up in the same way as the release versions as noted above.

    Compiling manually

    64-bit build. For 32-bit builds, replace

    build-win64.txt with build-win32.txt

    meson --cross-file build-win64.txt --prefix /your/dxvk/directory build.w64
    cd build.w64
    meson configure

    for an optimized release build:

    meson configure -Dbuildtype=release
    ninja install
    The D3D10, D3D11 and DXGI DLLs as well as a shell script to set up DXVK for a specific wine prefix will be located in /your/dxvk/directory/bin.

    Notes on Vulkan drivers
    Before reporting an issue, please check the Wiki page on the current driver status and make sure you run a recent enough driver version for your hardware.
