Unreadable blocky text in some places with Epic Game Store

I’m trying to install GTA V from the Epic Game Store. I have tried using the Lutris install scripts for both. Each one successfully gets the Epic Game Store running, but when I click to install GTA V the text is unreadable.

I’m on Arch Linux and have installed Windows fonts system wide with ttf-ms-win10 and within the wine context with winetweak corefonts and winetweak allfonts.

A quicker test of the font can be seen by installing the EGS and when launched, don’t bother logging in. Just right click the EGS icon in the Wine System Tray - the text is fully garbled there too.

GPU is and AMD RX480.

Here is one person’s experience getting it working with Wine: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=35811

The most interesting part of those instructions is installing corefonts with winetricks, but you already did that. :confused:

I was able to borrow an nvidia GPU recently and using that with the nvidia proprietary drivers the blocky text displayed correctly. I guess it is an issue with amdgpu?

Quite certain I’ve seen that using while Nvidia. Cannot remember what fixed it. Could be that other wine fonts are missing. Lutris devs seems to think that even when “shipping” wine with Lutris that missing packages are okay to have.

You can do something like "sudo dnf install wine*fonts** and see if you have all fonts packages installed.

But, like I said, can’t remember.
