I was having some problems with Medieval Dynasty since I couldn’t make it run, but that it’s already solved thanks to you. Now, although the game runs, it’s almost unplayable… its performance is too low!!! I have 20 FPS or less of average!!! Is there a way to fix that doing some tweaks? You know, maybe changing the kernel or so?
What video driver are you using? For gaming, I switched to the v470 driver branch and almost all of the Steam/Proton issues I’d had vanished.
You can also try the linux-zen kernel; supposed to be optimized for gaming. I’ve found that the linux-lts kernel gives me the best overall performance, and since you’re hardware is not that new, it might be a better fit.
Thank you, Celty!
I edited Steam options of the game and added gamemoderun %command% but the game didn’t run, so I let it as it was before.
EDIT: I’m checking the requirements now.
EDIT2: I’m looking for the nvidia control panel, but I can’t find it!!! How can I check if I’m using the video drivers appropriately?
I don’t know what version of DirectX the game uses, and I don’t see any option to choose either one in the settings. The game is unplayable even after putting all graphics settings on Low. Someone mentioned something about changing to GPU driver version 470 might be a solution, but I couldn’t find how to change the driver on EndeavourOS, besides… is it too risky, right?
You’re describing exactly what happened to me, just with a different game. Once I downgraded to the v470 drivers, I can run it with graphics turned all the way up with zero problems. If you check on Nvidia’s site, the v470 branch is considered the Production (stable), while the v495 branch is the bleeding-edge, new-features branch.
Maybe you could try to disable the compositor? If I remember correctly sometimes people have described issues while gaming under Xfce with compositor in use. I don’t know if this will help but at least it is worth a try I guess.
I got rid of 495 version and I installed 470 version, but I’m still having low performance issues. I just recorded a Medieval Dynasty clip using the env variable DXVK_HUD=full %command% so you can see more in detail:
