What works

Using my AMD R7 265 with AMDGPU and Wine-Staging Gallium Nine in a win64 prefix. It is running almost as good in Wine as Windows, averaging 60fps at 2k resolution and all settings maxed other than Visible Character Limit, I left that at High, and Shadow Map Resolution at 2048.

So far, everything works, I didn't test PVP (but I see no reason why it wouldn't work), including cut scene videos, and loading screens (though the odd time it will corrupt for a second until it loads a bit farther). The 10ish second lag when you first load in still is there, but loading the game doesn't take much longer than it does on Windows, definitely not 1-2 minutes.

You still need to use swtor_fix.exe, from (run it from a console prior to starting the SWTOR launcher and then minimize the console). Use 'winetricks msvcp90=native d3dx9 vcrun2008 msls31 winhttp'.

I also gave a Gold rating since you still need swtor_fix.exe to get it to work.


What does not

Had trouble with BitRaider so changed the line in launcher.settings:

, "PatchingMode": "{ \"swtor\": \"BR\" }"


, "PatchingMode": "{ \"swtor\": \"SSN\" }"

since I didn't want to fight with getting it to work.

Additional Comments

I run Linux kernel 4.9 (In the Arch Linux testing repo at the time I wrote this) as it ships with AMD SI and CI enabled by default, Mesa-git, and AMDGPU with Options "DRI" "3" set in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-amdgpu.conf: Section "Device" Identifier "AMD" Driver "amdgpu" Option "DRI" "3" EndSection
