What works

Everything


What does not

After testing I found a way to make this run without any more
crashes. I now have 8 hours of play without a single crash. No graphical
artifacts I would say this makes the game Gold.
Firstly, I am running an Nvidia 1660TI in a Lenovo Legion 5 laptop so this is obviously an
Nvidia Specific recommendation, from what I hear the game runs much
better on Radeon without any effort.

Firstly the biggest stability difference is from using the Nvidia Beta Vulkan Driver found here:
https://developer.nvidia.com/v...
I am running Ubuntu focal (20.04) and so I did the following:

1: Download the Nvidia Driver
2: Log out of your session.
3: Use Alt F3 to log into a terminal.
4: sudo service gdm3 stop (Stop anything using the existing driver)
5: sudo apt remove nvidia*   (get rid of the current nvidia driver)
6: apt list --installed | grep nvidia  (make sure there is nothing left that might interfere)
6: sudo   (Install the driver you downloaded from NVIDIA)
By all means try and install it using DKMS, if that fails, then try again without that option.

7: If you use prime, then install that package  .....  sudo apt install nvidia-prime
8: If you want to use your Nvidia card for processing, then install the
correct nvidia-compute package ---> sudo apt install nvidia-compute-
9:
Disable the Open source Nouveau driver that will almost certainly have
been activated when you uninstalled the distribution provided driver.
sudo bash -c "echo blacklist nouveau > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf"
sudo bash -c "echo options nouveau modeset=0 >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf"
sudo update-initramfs -u

10: If you are running focal and you followed these instructions you can
now reboot and you will be running the Beta Nvidia Driver! Happy Days.
If you compiled it without DKMS then if you update the kernel (ie. via a
software update) you will have to follow these instructions again after
you reboot and you find your Nvidia card is not working.
If you can get DKMS to work then it will automatically recompile the driver for you each time you update.

11: Finally after you reboot, in my experience the latest version of DXVK
is often the fastest/most stable and so you should make sure you have
it.
You can use the GE versions by downloading from here and following the instructions:
https://github.com/GloriousEgg...

If you are using Lutris (Highly recommended) then it will take care of all this for you.
Don't ever give up. Don't let anyone tell you that gaming on Linux can't be
faster and more stable than Windows. But also be realistic, some
programs will never run well, either due to programming issues or
compatibility issues, but never take these examples of failure as your
guide. Trust in Open Source. Trust in Freedom. Contribute and thank
everyone else who does and make the world a better place.
