What works

Once past the DirectX installation prompt (see below) everything seems to work correctly (benchmark, configuration, character creation, link buttons).

Under DX11 there are no black squares or flickering graphics as have been reported under DX9 in previous versions of FFXIV.

What does not

The benchmark does not start in an empty prefix due to an unskippable DirectX installation prompt.

Once running, the benchmark detects the OS version as "Windows XP Professional" regardless of the Windows version set in winecfg.


When running the benchmark in an otherwise empty prefix, it aborts with a message that the DirectX 9 runtime needs to be installed, pointing to the Microsoft web installer. That installer does not seem to run under Wine, and downloading and running the offline version of the DirectX runtime installer does not fix the benchmark.

However, downloading and starting the FFXIV client installer will install the DirectX runtime, and once this has been done, the benchmark will run even without proceeding to the actual client install.

Despite all this, once the benchmark actually starts, it successfully detects and uses DirectX 11.

I installed a small windows partiton to compare with wine. with the benchmark on max settings and full 1080p score was 16000. vs wine dx11 score was 3000. thats only 18.75% of the performance windows gets.
