What works

Completed the whole solo campaign twice (once using 2.21-staging).

Videos show up properly.

No graphics corruption whatsoever.

Performance is at worst 80% that of Windows (probably due to driver differences).


What does not

OpenGL mode doesn't work due to the lack of Compatibility profile support in Mesa drivers as of now.

The latest build of Doom fails to run due to it not being able to install the 2015 Visual studio redistributable.


OpenGL not supported: use Vulkan. For the first Doom run (as it defaults to OpenGL), add a launch option (in Steam) : +r_renderapi 1

Latest Doom version not running: use a recent winetricks version and install the 2015 Visual studio redistributable manually beforehand:

sh ./winetricks vcrun2015

What was not tested


Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Tested with AMD Polaris (RX480 8Gb) using Mesa 18.0 / RADV final installed through the Padoka stable PPA on Ubuntu 16.04.

This is done using non-official (Padoka stable PPA) non-proprietary drivers.

Users of Nvidia cards or Radeon PRO driver should not need the Vulkan workaround - although enabling Vulkan does provide a nice FPS boost on AMD driver, even on Windows.

HowTo / Notes

Demo Notice
The demo has not been updated for roughly five months (thus it likely still uses antitamper) and should not be used to supplement bug reports.
