Apparently RDR2 runs faster in Linux+WINE than Windows natively (Vulkan port, at least).
New patch tonight!
I've been playing this game since launch on PC, and just finished the story line this week. I might have dragged it out a bit because I didn't want it to end.
I enjoyed the story, although I felt a bit constrained by it at times.
I was more upset when Arthur's horse died than when Arthur died.
I thought it was pretty funny that Micah was invincible at the end. I threw two sticks of dynamite right at him and it did nothing.
I never played the original Red Dead Redemption and I didn't realise that this was a prequel until I searched for alternative endings to the game.
I think it's kind of strange that the game seems to make a big deal about 'honor', but it makes almost zero difference to the story line.
I've also picked up RDR 1 for PS3, so I can pick up the story where it left off when I get time to get to it.
In some ways RDR1 was better, but both very very good.
Picked this up on sale a while back being 50/50 on it because the whole cowboy gunslinger theme isn’t my thing. No regrets, this game really is a masterpiece. I’ve just started on the epilogue, the last story mission did make me a bit sad. The character development of Arthur is fantastic writing.
Anyone play/played RDR2 on Linux via Proton?
I'm having some performance issues and it seems very CPU bound, which I'm surprised at. I get between 25fps (busy areas) and 50fps (normally sits at around 40fps), it doesn't seem to matter whether I'm at 3440x1440 or 1920x1080, ultra or low settings, fps is much the same. CPU sitting at > 80% non-stop (all cores). CPU is a 3300X, nothing else using it, well enough cooled, never over 75c.
In Radeon Profile I graphed GPU use and it sits at about 50% average.
Is this normal CPU usage for RDR2? What about on Windows? I've tried a bunch of launch options I found online with no change.
FYI for a comparison, 3440x1440 very high settings on GTA5 I get around 100fps and 30% CPU.
On the off chance that you're as dumb as me, I had it set to use Proton 5.13-6. Changed to 6.3-1 and framerate is now in the 60s! CPU usage hasn't moved but now the GPU usage is at least close to 100%.
On my Windows 10 PC on a 9900K, CPU sits at between 44% to 52% every thing maxed out on 3440 x 1440 while my GPU sits at 99% or higher for RDR2. At everything maxed on 3440 x 1440, I get about 40 FPS on my 1080Ti.
Anyone up for some dlss?
I wish I'd seen your original post sooner, sorry. "Newest Proton" is almost always the solution.
DXVK especially is moving at lightning speeds, and along with WINE (both of which Proton use, and all three cross-pollinate) the recent improvements have been quite mind blowing. Absolutely key to stay on the bleeding edge with these releases, as they're almost always massively improved for both recent and old games.
Yeah I've since learnt my lesson. I wasn't sure how bleeding edge the newest proton releases were and how quickly things were progressing in that space.
Since have multiple games running well using proton on both AMD and NVidia systems.
That must be great for the 3 people who actually use Linux.
Steam Deck says hi.
Yeah I'm sure all that dev time has been put in for "3 people", exaggeration aside.
That thing is going to flop so hard and it's going to be glorious.
I wish I had a dollar for every Steam Linux gamer.
Given how many different x86 "Switch clones" are getting pumped out of either China or Kickstarter every month, there's loads of demand there. Would be great for someone a little less "dodgy Chinese mob" to attempt one, and if Valve can market it right, I think they can pick up a huge amount of Switch/Vita refugees looking for a new alternative without turning to AliExpress level stuff.
PCMR, well, sheeeiiiit, they hate everything and everyone, so no point marketing to them.
PCMR on an overclocking forum? No way!
I think the console will do well though.
It's cute that you think this is what OCAU is still about, and that it hasn't grown well past its namesake.
Yeah no pc enthusiasts here! Would be a reasonable assumption that most people here are into tech and have the emotional capability to be unique and have taste and preferences.
But nope, they must bootlick and drool over everything released how it is, buggy mess of a game? acceptable! The industry isnt regulated.
Prefer something was built slightly different? you disgusting PCMR!
Or maybe just accept not everyone is the same and have every right to have something about a game or hardware device they arent happy with.
How about we rename to the uhhhhh 'general technology and other topics people like me also like to talk about forums'?
