What works

Basic Gameplay (Starting Area)

What does not

Poor performance even with DXVK, it seems to be a CPU Bottleneck (1 core at 100% while GPU usage is below 50%). ~20 FPS on Ultra, ~50-70 FPS on Low, ~40-60 on Medium settings. 

Note: On Windows I've got >60 FPS on Ultra settings.

Workarounds

Installing DXVK 1.02 and setting glsl to disabled increased performance

Everything except the human starting area

HowTo / Notes

Game Data Updating and Integrity Checking/Repair

You can fully download all of the game data and any future updates required for Guild Wars 2 by appending -image as a command-line argument to the Guild Wars 2 executable (Gw2-64.exe or Gw2.exe). An example can be found below:

WINEPREFIX=~/'Wine Prefixes/Guild Wars 2' wine 'Gw2.exe' -image

You can also check the integrity of the game data archive by appending -repair as a command-line argument (this can take longer than 5-10 minutes to complete):

WINEPREFIX=~/'Wine Prefixes/Guild Wars 2' wine 'Gw2-64.exe' -repair

For quick guidelines:

  • For initial installations, -image is recommended so you don't have to worry about streaming data during gameplay
  • If you've had your Gw2.dat for a while, it's a good idea to run -repair on it every now and then after updates
  • If you've had to hard-shutdown your computer while GW2 was running, running -repair is highly recommended

4.10 and the Trading post
by Jen on Thursday June 13th 2019, 23:36
I've tried both 4.10 and 4.10-staging, and every time I try accessing the trading post, I get "net::ERR_FAILED". Anyone else getting this? I didn't get it with 4.9-staging.
BUG: Black Screen
by Ricardo Rodrigues on Wednesday June 20th 2018, 21:55
Hi,

Posting a Bug Report is a pain, so a comment will have to do.

I get a Black Screen when entering the game (after logging in) and this is because I changed the scale in xrandr.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Change scale: xrandr --output DP-2 --scale 0.75x0.75
2. Start the game.
3. Black screen, but game is responsive.

A lot of message errors will appear saying: X11DRV_ChangeDisplaySettingsEx No matching mode found 1440x1620x32 @0! (XRandR 1.2)

Current Solution: HACK

1. Create a script to start the game.
2. Before the command to start, scale back: xrandr --output DP-2 --scale 1x1
3. After the command to start, scale: xrandr --output DP-2 --scale 0.75x0.75
4. Start the game (no black screen)
Gentoo?

Is this confirmed working in Gentoo Stable? I'm having issues getting it launched currently. Haven't messed with it too much yet

I found that this game works perfectly with older versions of wine too, it's all good (from 2.0 and upwards), I'm using Debian Stretch. I worked away all the error messages in the debug output and it works great. I even use the nvidia optimum, all good. Only i found that by switching to Wayland, that the mouse error (that the mouse stops at a certain point which prevents you from looking 360 degrees in 1 move) from long ago is back. In X I don't have this.
