Overwatch not starting

Hello there,

I installed Overwatch with the official launcher and tried to run it. But when I click play in the battle.net launcher, it fails on a general Error.

As I am new to Lutris/Wine, i wanted to ask for help how to troubleshoot this. Can anybody give me a hint what to do here?

I don’t believe Intel HD graphics are supported?

The game doesn’t work on integrated GPU on Linux without manually editing settings file, it crashes with “General Error” error when you try to launch it.

To fix that, It’s necessary to get fully configured Settings_v0.ini (for the same iGPU as you have) file from somewhere (i got it from my Windows partition as i played the game there) and copy [GPU.6] section from it into our new Settings_v0.ini file. You can copy-paste whole content of the file if you want, but actually only [GPU.6] section is required.

i dont have intelgraphic myself cant test

Hi Alex,
thanks for your reply. I already created the Settings.ini as said in the instructions. A similar Thread stated, that this is a recent bug in mesa: Overwatch "General Error" E0010180 on Intel HD 620
Best regards,
