What works

"Everything" required to play the game (including DX11 support)!!!

  • installation via Steam
  • gameplay (solo and multiplayer)
  • sound
  • mouse/keyboard input
  • fullscreen and windowed mode
  • low quality graphics (from low to ultra)

What does not

Graphic issues, due to the fact that D11 support is not perfect. But DX11 do works!!! In this Wine version it is playable in DX11 mode. In previous 2.x it was playable only in DX10 mode, and very poorly.

  • characters have texture problems, sometimes they look all black and sometimes all bright white
  • sometimes lights shows dashes on the screen, depending on the angle the character looks at, as he moves

It happens in all quality graphics configuration: from low to ultra.


What was not tested

Item creation.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

If it were not for the small problems on the graphics reported above (which do not get in the way), I'd rate it as platinum. For real, it is playable.

  • Graphics: GeForce GTX970 4Gb GDDR5
  • Driver: NVidia 384.98
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-4160
  • Memory: four Corsair 4GB DDR3 1600MHz (up to 16 Gb)

HowTo / Notes

Running Killing Floor in DirectX 10 mode

Killing Floor 2 uses DirectX 11 features by default. If you're not inclined to use DXVK which translates D3D11 calls to Vulkan, and knowing WINE DirectX 11 support is not yet complete, you should use DirectX 10 mode instead. To enable this, launch Killing Floor 2 with the `-DX10` option.
