What works

Everything except the corner map / minimap and the overlay map. They only show the names of NPCs, but no graphics, no landscape, no nothing.

What does not

Antialiasing provides us with a white screen where the game world should have been. SMAA simply does not work, which appears to be the case in other DirectX11 titles too.


Turn antialiasing off.

What was not tested

PvP, group play.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

This was tested an AUR package for Arch Linux that includes both wine-staging 3.3, wine-pba patches for better D3D performance as well as a patch to allow the usage of DirectX11 in Path of Exile:

Should be noted that I installed it in a fresh 64bit wineprefix, set to windows 10, with EAX- and vaapi video decoding enabled.

I adjusted the following settings in the ~/'Documents/My Games/production_Config.ini':


Furthermore I'm running the game with the following launch options:

wine ./'PathOfExile_x64.exe' --garbage-generation 1 --waitforpreload

With these settings I was getting fluent gameplay with hardly any stuttering, and no crashes.

HowTo / Notes

Required fixes (as of 2014-08-07)
Set fullscreen
Edit the production_Config.ini file located in ${Documents}/My Games/Path of Exile/. Change fullscreen to true. This prevents the "Failed Resetting Direct3D device objects" crash.

Override openal32.dll:
In winecfg, set the openal32 library to native,builtin or native. This prevents errors involving sound files at launch.
Unconfirmed: An alternative is to launch Path of Exile with sound off with the -nosound flag. 
Recommended fixes (as of 2014-08-07)
winetricks riched20.dll // for launcher
winetricks usp10.dll    // fix unicode missing symbols
