Shadow of the tomb raider doesn't play (Integrated graphics processor)

Shadow of the tomb raider (Windows Iso) when I click play, it flashes a black screen and closes the game:

What have you tried to get it to run?

I didn’t make any changes via winetricks, I left everything original as Lutris installs

I just added the game via the Add Game… button, installed via iso in a wineprefix ~/Jogos/Shadow_TR. runner I set Wine (Windows).


When entering the game, in options, if I leave the Directx12 option activated, and go to play, it happens the same as the video, a black screen flashes and the game closes.

If I disable Directx12 in options, and go to play. This black screen appears below and does not advance.


If I start the game via wine command line without lutris, the message below appears

WINEPREFIX=’/home/leonardo/Jogos/Shadow_TR’ DISPLAY=:0 wine start /unix ‘/home/leonardo/Jogos/Shadow_TR/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Shadow Of The Tomb Raider/SOTTR.exe’


The game doesn’t need any winetricks to work, so we can rule that out. I know the game works because I installed it ages ago. But I didn’t use directx 12. I think directx 12 on Lutris is older than git. So try to download the latest git and place the DLL’s in the prefix system folders. If you do that you will need to disable “dxvk/vkd3d” in lutris, because you manually replaced the DLL’s. remember to create a backup first.

What is your wine version? I would recommend using wine-tkg for lutris.

When you start the game, right click on it in lutris and say show logs. so we can see what is happening in the background also.

Make sure your also using the correct GPU if it’s intergrated. The command is DRI_PRIME=1 in lutris. I use nvidia gpu so anything to do with AMD gpu is just what i’ve picked up.

Have your tried launching directly from Steam? Proton (Steam Play) should work fine. However, a Ryzen 5 APU probably isn’t going to be good enough.

Hi, in case this helps anyone else, I have just got Shadow running through Lutris. I could not get it to run directly from a shortcut in Lutris as the game was opening a browser window after clicking start, asking for permissions. Clicking agree left the game running with just a black screen.
I found that If you run it through Epic Games Store in Lutris it does not open the browser window and the game starts correctly. I have unchecked DirectX 12 and using low graphics as i’m on a Ryzen 3 with 16Gb memory and a seperate Nvidia GT1030 graphics card. So a low end spec even though it’s the best I’ve had…
It gives a warning that I am using an older graphics driver but clicking ok runs the game fine.
Using Kubuntu 20.04
Running Epic Games store with argruments -opengl -SkipBuildPatchPrereq

All other options set to default or off.

I haven’t tried the AMD integrated graphics.

Hope this may be of use to someone. The other two games in the series work with the same configuration but I was able to run them directly through Lutris from a shortcut without launching through the Epic Games.Store.
