Configuration

Wine

Lutris will download Wine runtime from its server when you install a Windows game. However, the openSUSE wine or wine-staging package usually has better performance.

By default, Lutris uses downloaded Wine runtime. You need to manually configure a game to use system Wine runtime.

  1. Right click game
  2. Choose "Configure"
  3. Open "Runner options" tab
  4. Change "Wine Version" to "System (x.xx)"
Some games require custom patched Wine build. For example, League of Legends. The openSUSE wine or wine-staging package won't work.

Vulkan/DXVK

Many Wine games uses D9VK/DXVK to improve performance.

First you need to install Vulkan. Then enable DXVK:

  1. Right click game
  2. Choose "Configure"
  3. Open "Runner options" tab
  4. Turn on "Enable DXVK/VKD3D"

Resolution

Force fesolution

To improve performance, you may want to reduce the game resolution to 1080p or 720p. However, some games don't allow you to do so. For example, Torchlight II.

However, you can still force system to change its resolution when launching games via Lutris.

  1. Right click game
  2. Choose "Configure"
  3. Go to "System options" tab
  4. Turn on "Restore resolution on game exit"
  5. Change "Switch resolution to" to 1920x1080, 1280x720 or whatever

Windowed mode

Many old games only support a few fixed resolution and don't support windowed mode. For example, Diablo II (2000) only supports 800x600 or 640x480. In wide monitors, the graphics are stretched in a wired way.

Lutris + Wine supports virtual desktop as windowed mode:

  1. Right click game
  2. Choose "Configure"
  3. Go to "Runner options" tab
  4. Turn on "Windowed (virtual desktop)"
  5. Change "Virtual desktop resolution to" to the game's native resolution
