    Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered is an action sandbox 3rd person shooter where every object is destructable. Join the insurgents and fight the Earth Defense Forces by literally smashing and blowing up their resources. Either piece by piece with your hammer, detonate with explosives or run it through with a vehicle. There is no end to your destructive forces...

    export DXVK_HUD=devinfo,fps

    Here are detailed instructions in case you still can't get DXVK to run

    Conclusion:
    Once I was able to get the proper version of Nvidia, Wine and DXVK running... Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered ran perfectly! I was able to get decent frame rates and cranked most of the setting to high.
    Once I saw the HUD when launching the game, I knew DXVK was working. Otherwise the game would freeze up every time.

    How did you get Nvidia 396.24.02 drivers. I'm on Ubuntu 18.04 and only 390.48 show up.
  2. booman
    You probably need to add this PPA first so the driver manager can see them:

    @booman you forgot to put Re-Mars-tered in Title.

    also is there GOG update for this game are you using an older build
    booman likes this.
  4. booman
    Yeah, I thought I would keep it simple in the title, but I added it in the description.
    Not sure about patches... do you have the original?
  5. batmanm0b1e
    i have the same build as you do @booman Where you able to see the install bar go across. I can't see it.
  6. booman
    What bar? The DXVK HUD?
  7. batmanm0b1e
    The install bar. Installing the game
  8. booman
    Sorry, I don't remember as I only installed it once.
    Its normal to not see a loading/installing bar or seeing it as completed but the installer continues.
    Does it ever finish?
  9. batmanm0b1e
    How long does it take you for the install process
  10. booman
    Its a fairly large game, I think it was like 30 Gigabytes, so it may take 15 minutes depending on the speed of your hard drive.

    I don't exactly remember because I only installed it once.

    You can also download the files again just to be sure they aren't corrupted
  11. batmanm0b1e
    When i start the game. its crashed. Do i need to install vulkan
  12. booman
    If you are using the Lutris 3.12 staging 64-bit Wine version, the Windows Vulkan packages are already installed.
    But you definitely need to install Linux Vulkan too.

    Were you able to follow this guide: DXVK
  13. batmanm0b1e
    OK that's might be the issue. I didn't install vulKan packeges yet. I'm running peppermint 9 its ubuntu it uses LXDE parts and XFCE parts together. what packages do i install. If you can list them for me.

    Yes the guide went smooth very good just the game not launch probably due to me not having vulkan installed. I was using playonlinux also then i tried Lutris and still didn't work
  14. booman
    These Vulkan packages should do it:
    • libvulkan1
    • libvulkan1:i386
