That is really frustrating. What a bunch of incompetent soydevs! They should upgrade their crappy software, not you your drivers: you are almost certainly more up to date than anyone playing that game on buntu.
To figure out what happened, you first need a list of all the packages that were upgraded on Sunday. You can find that out by looking at
/var/log/pacman.log, near the end…
Since Sunday was 31st October, a command like this will give you all the entries relevant for that date:
grep "^\[2021-10-31" /var/log/pacman.log
Share the output here.
Last time i’ve played it was with:
5.19-staging dxvk 1.7.2
So in case you use latest wine version from repo, i suggest you rather run it in a more “portable” way, kinda like i’ve written here or just through Lutris engine Linux gaming [Guide]
P.S. Or if you use Steam - try with GloriousEggroll or TKG engine instead of Proton, see if it helps

Yeah, just as I feared, you updated Nvidya drivers from 470 to 495… I can just echo what Linus Torvalds said to Nvidya (slightly NSFW).
I’m sure someone will come up with a solution for you.
Oh, ok, then my advice is to start playing through Proton / Wine - native Linux games are far from stable unfortunately, otherwise you’ll start working as a 24/7 debug service for devs.
Yes, and also see this, looks like your series of cards have just become legacy
Install the 470 series of nvidia drivers.
Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I think it would be easiest to add @jonathon’s repo and just install the 470 drivers. Installing them will automatically remove conflicting (replaces) packages. Do not uninstall anything, because your computer might become slightly unbootable.
What’s weird is that 750 Ti is not listed there…
Oh it’s Maxwell, not Kepler…so it’s not the drivers guys.
Even if it is supported, I would try downgrading since the game stopped working after the update. If nothing else, it will tell you if the issue is related to the drivers or not.
It could be that the drivers are incompatible with the game, not the hardware. Only way to tell for sure is to test.
I guess you’re right, especially since it’s Linux native game…
Well at least hardware compatibility is intact
I don’t see what else it could be, these packages were upgraded when the thing broke:
archlinux-keyring tzdata bind systemd-libs device-mapper cryptsetup xorg-server-common libnghttp2 systemd xorg-server nvidia-utils egl-wayland eos-translations gawk geoip-database gupnp gupnp-igd imagemagick ldb lib32-nvidia-utils librsvg libxnvctrl linux linux-headers lvm2 nvidia-dkms nvidia-installer-db nvidia-installer-dkms nvidia-settings openexr python-gobject r8168 smbclient systemd-sysvcompat v4l-utils vala virtualbox-host-modules-arch xmlsec zenity
The only thing that screams on this list is Nvidya…
xorg could, as well as Kernel (not likely).
P.S. I’ve seen it sometimes back on Manjaro
No, that’s very unlikely…
Add the kernel-lts repo as described here:
It contains the older drivers.
Don’t try to remove the new drivers separately. Just install the older drivers after adding the repo. They will replace the newer drivers.
If you need more detailed instructions, see:
Specifically, “How to use” part… When you’ve edited your
/etc/pacman.conf and imported the keys, you can run:
sudo pacman -Syyu nvidia-470xx-dkms nvidia-470xx-settings nvidia-470xx-utils lib32-nvidia-470xx-utils
I think these are all the packages necessary. Someone please check.
Well, we can just force it:
sudo pacman -Syyudd nvidia-470xx-dkms nvidia-470xx-settings nvidia-470xx-utils lib32-nvidia-470xx-utils
Hopefully, this won’t break anything… Do not reboot until you check that everything is installed.
When everything is done, check:
pacman -Q | grep nvidia
Oops. Hopefully this should fix it:
sudo pacman -Rdd nvidia-dkms nvidia-installer-db nvidia-installer-dkms
When done check with:
