What works

Everything seems working by launching it from Lutris, after applying the workaround to disable Intel XeSS.

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz

GPU: Mesa Intel(R) HD Graphics 520 (SKL GT2) (Gen9)

OS: Arch Linux

Runner: Lutris (wine-ge-8-22)

DXVK: 2.3

VKD3D: 2.11

D3DExtras: v2

What does not

With a GPU Intel Gen9, the game crashes duing startup due to Intel Xess. 

A log with the error can be found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo IV\FenrisDebug.txt, which contains something like this:

Even disabling XeSS from the Diablo config file does not change anything.


After some reverse engineering of the XeFX_Loader.dll, I figured out that there is an environment variable that disables the XeFX_loader:


After setting this variable, Diablo 4 starts and runs smoothly.

What was not tested

Played just 1h and tested basic stuff (menu, gameplay). Everything seems working.

No GPUs found

The "No GPUs found" seems to be the biggest issue right now and no one has a reliable solution yet. I'm currently using wine-8.13 (Staging) and installed VKD3D-Proton 2.9. But not sure about other libraries. How about the library overrides with winecfg? Do we have a definitive list?


d3d_extras_version: v2
dxvk_version: v2.2
vkd3d_version: v2.9

How do we install these? winecfg, winetricks, manually... For example, I can't find d3d_extras_version anywhere.

What exactly is this issue? Is it GPU dependent? I'm running the game just fine without getting such error.

> How about the library overrides with winecfg? Do we have a definitive list?
d3d12, d3d12core, dxgi
First two should be created when installing VKD3D-Proton, and last one when installing DXVK.

> For example, I can't find d3d_extras_version anywhere.
Who told you to install it? It shouldn't be required to run the game.

I'm not sure if it's GPU dependent. I have an "AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core" processor.

Okay, I'll recheck my dll overrides. And the d3d_extras_version is listed above.
Diablo 4 retail

Playing Diablo 4 retail more then 3 weeks with no problem.
Fedora 38 64bit.
?I used wine-staging from WineHQ repository, also working on Kron4ek?:
Crashed on start with lutris and proton builds of wine.
CPU: i5-7500 CPU @ 3.40GHz
Video i915 integrated Intel HD Graphics 630 (~20fps on minimal settings)

Set version to Windows 11 or use regedit on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion and changing CurrentBuild and CurrentBuildNumber values? to 2090
?d3d_extras_version: v2?
dxvk_version: v2.2?
vkd3d_version: v2.9?
Realtime priority required for smooth playing.
My user script, run it after game starts:
PID=`pgrep Diablo`
if [ "$PID" ]; then
sudo chrt --rr --pid 99 $PID
VKD3D-Proton installation
by kolAflash on Sunday June 11th 2023, 17:53
Install VKD3D-Proton via the official installer.
Installing VKD3D-Proton via current winetricks version 20230212-next is broken!

winetricks 20230212-next misses to install d3d12core.dll beside d3d12.dll. d3d12core.dll was newly introduced in VKD3D-Proton version 2.9. And without VKD3D-Proton 2.9 will give you a "unimplemented function d3d12core.dll.D3D12GetInterface" error.

Runs fine on Debian-12 with the three workarounds applied: Windows Build 18363, DXVK, VKD3D-Proton
Alternative to get rid of the outdated drivers message: In launcher set launch parameter "-bypassgpudrivercheck" for Diablo IV.

I was wondering if you would be able to assist me. I have created a thread about the current issue i am facing -

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

On Arch (Manjaro) use Wine x64 prefix and add /drive_c/ProgramData/ to Windows 11 Version in winecfg i f you get the "No supported OS" error.
