[Solved]Overwatch general error when using DXVK


#1

The game runs when using Opengl, but it’s below 60 fps. On Windows 10 the game runs above 100 fps most of the times.

But when I try to use DXVK by ticking the box in the settings, the game gives me a “General Error” after pressing “Play” in the Blizzard app.

I have an AMD RX 460 2GB on Manjaro 17.1.12 XFCE (It gave me the same error also when I was using Ubuntu 18.04)

Hearthstone, HotS and Diablo 3 work on DXVK flawlessly.
Proton on Steam lets me run some Windows games flawlessly.
League of Legends runs flawlessly through lutris.
Dota 2 runs natively with the Vulkan API better than Windows (120+ fps).

Only Overwatch doesn’t seems to work. Am I missing something? Am I doing something wrong? I installed all the necessary libraries.

Try dxvk 0.71


#3

That’s what I used. I tried 0.71, 0.70 and 0.62


#4

I have the same issue with a RX480 on Kubuntu 18.04 with dxvk 0.72.

edit: fixed it!
It seems there was a conflict between the Intel iGPU and my RX 480.
I added VK_ICD_FILENAMES=/usr/share/vulkan/icd.d/radeon_icd.x86_64.json in the game environment variables and that fixed it.

OMG You are awesome! Thanks! I also have an integrated Intel GPU. You are the best!
