Genshin Impact won't launch with NVIDIA Prime Render Oflload

Hello, this is my first entry here so excuse my mistakes if I make any.

Whenever I try to launch Genshin Impact from Lutris with the “NVIDIA Prime Render Offload” option enabled, both the AAGL and Standard Version, it fails to launch. This happens when I start Lutris with the prime-run command too.

If it’s anything of importance, when I try it with the AAGL version actuall a transparent window pops up at least but that’s it.

Here is the terminal output when I try to launch the game:

Do tell me if you want me to provide any other diagnostics.
Thanks in advance.

set the vulkan ICD loader to nvidia proprietary, Use discrete to enable and disable prime offload - you only use prime on a laptop that explicitly has it.

Are those enough to get the full performance of the dedicated graphics card? If so, what does “Prime Render Offload” do, do I just don’t need it?

You only need Prime offload on laptops that specifically have this feature enabled and the nvidia software for handling this is installed. Based on what is above, you just need the vulkan ICD loader set and the use Discrete


Allright. Thank you very much.
