Additional Comments

There are several issues with the game, which why I rate it only Bronze. However, all of them have workarounds: After the intro videos, the screen is black for a few seconds, but the main menu appears after sometime. Audio is very choppy. This can be avoided by setting PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60. Lots of rendering errors. As statet in the info, this can be avoided by setting -dx10 as a launch option. After these workarounds I still had lots of black textures and pop-ins even on Ultra settings; however, the following worked for me: Locate the file Engine.ini in the path /My Games/KFGame/Config. Set: bUseTextureStreaming=false (default is true)

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.
