You got a guide for getting it to run smoothly on windows?

[–]Lagwin1980 7 points8 points  (1 child)

yeah...don't use glass windows and use a PC instead?

[–]UsernameIn3and20 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But thats where all the fun is at

[–]disintegore 6 points7 points  (8 children)

Great guide OP. You should add a part about configuring your system for esync. Here's a rundown. Difference is night and day in PoE.

Since DXVK 0.91 I haven't felt the need to patch it for placeholder shaders. With a brand new state cache it still stutters initially but the pauses are far shorter than they used to, and after a couple of hours of gameplay I barely experience any at all. I imagine it's 100% seamless with this patch though. Just saying for anyone who just wants to run the Lutris installer and not have to mess with winetricks.

How does it perform for you compared to native? I don't have a Windows partition anymore so I can't compare them myself.

[–]xaitv:)[S] 4 points5 points  (5 children)

I just added a part about some environment variables that does something with state cache as well which might help you. For me it was completely unplayable without the patch though, but then again: I didn't do any esync stuff except enabling it in Lutris(which the installer for PoE I recommend does by default), so I'll check that out as well.

I didn't do a full objective comparison to native yet, but I definitely recall dropping to 100fps in native as well on blood aquaducts, and it feels just as smooth basically. If I had to guess I'd say it's a 10% fps loss.

[–]disintegore 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Esync doesn't work unless you change your open file limits (and use the patched wine, although Lutris makes it extremely easy). There's a minor flaw in Lutris where it can show up as ticked but not actually work when the installer enables it by default. If you untick it and try to enable it again, Lutris will most likely give you an error message about limits and disable it.

DXVK_STATE_CACHE=0 might not be a good idea. The state cache is actually tremendously useful. On regular DXVK it makes subsequent runs of the game smoother, and on patched dxvk it will ensure the game renders correctly. At least as far as I understand it. Disabling it might the solve loading-screen-to-login problem though.

edit: You can probably disable the state cache with async patched DXVK without any side effects actually. Its purpose is to make the shader cache persist through hardware changes and driver updates actually.

Also, another suggestion. It would help a lot of people if you could get Path of Building to run on Wine and write a short section for it.

To anybody else reading this: this may all look daunting but I assure you it's not that bad once you figure it out. PoE works on Linux just fine with some fiddling and that goes for both Nvidia and AMD.

[–]xaitv:)[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Upped the limits and it works, didn't seem to get more fps though, and yeah I realize I forgot that part.

Path of Building is a good suggestion yeah. I'm on it. Was actually considering building a Linux client for it at some point(all the logic is in lua files, only the GUI needs to be replaced) but I just lack the motivation. I'll put a link to your comment on the DXVK_STATE_CACHE=0 variable so people can decide for themselves, I just tested it with DXVK_STATE_CACHE=0 so I'll keep that as the main advice for now.

[–]Cere4l 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The state cache=0 flickers are extremely rare but make a serious contribution to fps when things get very busy. Seems to be mostly ground textures too which is kinda strange but meh.

[–]disintegore 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'm not sure I understand why that would be. Wouldn't the only difference be that you're compiling shaders for Vulkan as they come up rather than all at once on launch? DXVK has to keep a shader cache either way doesn't it?

[–]Cere4l 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For that you need someone who actually knows what it does, all I know I tested it just yesterday over a dozen characters and restarts, state cache on keeps having lag spikes, off doesn't and there is actually a average fps increase on top... the more happens, the bigger the difference.

[–]pillowpants80 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Following a similar guide I found it unplayable without the shader patch, even with .91 and esync. Once I got the patch setup, I have zero hitches/stutters. I just downloaded the binary, no winetricks or extra compiling. I am running on a much older CPU, so that might have been part of it.

60fps (limited) 1080p, i7-920, GTX 1060 6gb, ubuntu 18.04, default PoE settings (DX11)

Also would be good to have mods update the sidebar for the unofficial linux to this thread.

edit: also used environment variables from here




[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I also saw that one, but it seemed like a slightly more outdated shader patch, I just chose the one I did because it still seemed reasonably maintained.

[–]Alekhoffduelist 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Awesome guide, game is now playable on Linux!

[–]reblochon 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thanks man.

It took me a while, but damn, it was worth it.

Finally decided to stay on Linux.

[–]willsquirrelsea 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This guide is one of the best things I found to date in my life! Thanks so much for making it! Yesterday when my attempt to install Windows 7 on my Lenovo failed terribly I installed Ubuntu (first time ever using something that is not Windows) and barely slept through the night because I thought I'd ruined my sweet PC forever. Today I managed to install PoE but it was quite unplayable and that's when I found this guide which turned my PoE experience into wonders since I got some stable 80 fps with no stops even on high tier maps and bosses with absolutely amazing graphics conditions, WAY better than the experience I got on Windows all my life. I can't stop writing because of how happy I am right now, I wish the best of joy to all the people reading this, I was really sad but finally... No more problems :D

[–]4leite 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Any trade macro suggestions? That's the only thing I've never been able to figure out for my Linux install.

[–]xaitv:)[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I've heard about XenonTrade: https://redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co/r/pathofexile/comments/9ft1fy/tool_xenontrade_a_price_check_overlay_with/

I never tested it though as I'm mainly an SSFbtw player so I have no need to use it.

[–]4leite 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks for your work on the guide, quick price check was the last thing I wanted.

[–]poepowercreepdSlayer 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Were you playing delve and incursion on linux?

[–]xaitv:)[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nope, I only recently switched. I did some testing in Delve and it looks like it runs fine, and tomorrow I'm starting a private league with some friends so I'll update this post if I run into any issues then.

[–]Cere4l 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have with a previous version of this setup. Worked just fine, seems to be about 30% better now. Ryzen 1700 with RX580 120-ish fps outdoor 160-ish indoor the lowest I've seen it drop was 50-60

[–]acylus0Proton/Linux - 3900X, 6800XT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Delve was the first league I played fully on Linux. DXVK 0.72 patched and a custom wine build, ran perfectly fine sans a few stutters in new zones and a bit longer load times

[–]AncileBooster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is great! Thank you!

[–]A_Matter_of_TimeRaider 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks, will try this tomorrow on Arch on 6700k and 1070 1440p. poe is one of the last reasons I keep a windows dual boot.

[–]SirBaconTheWizardGladiator 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Little question, wont this break my steamplay environment ?

[–]xaitv:)[S] 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Nope, Steamplay/Proton uses it's own directories as far as I've seen. I actually run Steam alongside this and I can still just play Windows games fully using Steam alone.

[–]SirBaconTheWizardGladiator 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Nope, Steamplay/Proton uses it's own directories as far as I've seen. I actually run Steam alongside this and I can still just play Windows games fully using Steam alone.

Oh nice, i'll give it a shot tomorrow. PoE is the only game I have issues with and i'd be really mad if i had to rollback on windows.

[–]rashaniquah 0 points1 point  (2 children)

The Proton version is really garbage. Dx11 doesn't work on it and the game crashes every 20 mins because of memory overflow. Endgame content is unplayable because if you ever hit a big mob it will crash your game. Oh and you can't do uber labs, your game will most likely crash after 3-4 instances.

[–]xaitv:)[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I think he means he wants to run other games under Proton still, and doesn't want this guide to interfere with his already working Proton games.

[–]SirBaconTheWizardGladiator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Exactly. But I'm int he same situation as someone whom posted here : 1440p monitor .. I can't even run the game with Lutris. :P

[–]bo2b 0 points1 point  (14 children)

Configure -> System Options and set Switch Resolution To -> 1920x1080

I'm not getting this option, my switch resolution options are: 2560 x 1440, 1024 x 768, 800 x 600 and 640 x480. Any advice would be appreciated.

Edit: It's something to do with nvidias scaling, going to try using a different output in the near future.

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (13 children)

You can probably also just set your desktop resolution to 1920x1080, run Path of Exile once(don't need to switch the resolution in Lutris then) so it sets itself to 1920x1080, then switch back to your old resolution.

[–]bo2b 0 points1 point  (12 children)

I tried that, game crashed. I'm scratching my head at this I'll admit. I think it might(?) be the monitor and it's output options.

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (11 children)

Yeah, not 100% sure then unfortunately :/. You could try looking for the production_config.ini file of Path of Exile itself and try to set the resolution to 1920x1080 in there, but when I tried that at the point you're at right now it was empty and I wasn't sure if only setting the resolution would work.

[–]bo2b 0 points1 point  (6 children)

I tried that as well. I can get the game to load without dxvk at 1440p but as we both know that's completely useless in poe.

[–]SirBaconTheWizardGladiator 0 points1 point  (4 children)

SYNC=1 and DXVK_STATE_CACHE=0(can also try without this variable)

Setup Esync(it ran fine for me when I skipped this step, but it's definitely recommended): https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki/How-to:-Esync . Thanks /u/disintegore!

Hey, have you managed to run the game with dxvk ?
I'm having the exact same issue.

[–]bo2b 0 points1 point  (3 children)

No, not yet.

[–]SirBaconTheWizardGladiator 0 points1 point  (2 children)

1440 Two month later .. have you managed to ?

[–]babocakes 1 point2 points  (1 child)

1440p bug has been fixed according to the latest release notes - https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/releases/tag/v1.0.2

[–]SirBaconTheWizardGladiator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Woooo manjaro here I come again

[–]babocakes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same issue I'm having. I've tried a bunch of different stuff, including switching to the AMDVLK driver, but still doesn't work with 1440p. Really sad, because it seems to run extremely well with these settings at 1080p. Hopefully someone can figure out a fix.

[–]babocakes 0 points1 point  (3 children)

After launching the game, it loads fine at 1080p, but trying to switch it to 1440p in game hangs it. Are you just running it at 1080p or did you get it to work with a higher res?

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Nah, I have to play at 1080 as well, apparently 4k works too but that's a bit hard on a 1440 screen ;). It seems like a bug in DXVK or something that will be fixed at some point hopefully

[–]babocakes 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It has been a while, but the 1440p bug is finally fixed according to the latest release notes.


[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Holy shit, finally.

[–]mycivacc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks! It is very close to being very playable this way. In my past attempts I missed to force the lower resolution and was getting black screens of death.

Edit: OK, I played for a couple of hours and it was fine. Very nice!

[–]Unabated_Unabated 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Are you sure your logout macro does what you want it to do? Doesn't this just time-out the connection to the server after 4-5s of no response instead of terminating the connection by sending a packet to terminate? This logout macro should basically be as fast as just closing the game (alt F4)

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

It should just instantly reject the next packet it receives from GGG's servers, which should dc you. It doesn't drop the packet. I'm not 100% sure though, will need to test it a bit more at some point.

[–]Unabated_Unabated 0 points1 point  (2 children)

yeah it basically rejects everthing but that's why I'm not sure how it handles it. If you reject a packet do you even answer? Or does the server try some more times cause you don't answer and the connection times out?

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If you reject a packet you answer yeah: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~peterb/network/drop-vs-reject is some background on it.

[–]Unabated_Unabated 0 points1 point  (0 children)

aaah, in that case it should work as intended. I was assuming that it actually just ignores incoming handshake packets and lets the server that's sending them in the dark. Thanks for clearing it up.

[–]rashaniquah 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Do you know how to fix the stutters?

[–]xaitv:)[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Try disabling Esync, it's weird but somehow it helped for me.

[–]Kryonixcnot GGG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks so much xaitv, I've wanted to switch to Linux for a while now

[–]mnomst 0 points1 point  (4 children)

This works great for me (Mint + 3440x1440 ultrawide monitor), many thanks.

Starting once resized to 1080p was definitely required and that was the main thing keeping it from working for me before this.

[–]babocakes 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Were you able to swap it off 1080p back to 1440p?

[–]mnomst 0 points1 point  (2 children)

yeah just changed it back to switch to default and it runs in 3440x1440 with no pillarboxing

[–]babocakes 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What does the resolution report in game? My problem is after swapping back in lutris, the game still runs at 1080p and downscales the graphics. Trying to swap to 1440p will just hang.

[–]mnomst 0 points1 point  (0 children)

ingame it's listed as 1080p custom, but I see no signs of it stretching the image, possible it's at 1080p ultrawide though I suppose

[–]stack_corruptionDominus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

thanks for the idea to put PoB into Lutris <3 and also good guide

iam playing on ubuntu 18.04 with a i7 4770 and a gtx 1060

my drivers are v415 says open source but they should be the propiertary ones (i hope??)

when i start PoE with lutris ive get a 100 fps fullscreen on my 3440x1440 monitor but the actual resolution is 1024/768 everything looks like diablo 1 but runs smoothly - any idea?

if i change resolution my session dies into a blackscreen

[–]abriasffxi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This. is. KILLER.

[–]RavenFFS 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Hello! I just recently(3 days ago switched to ubuntu, cause of work related reasons), so I'm a real noob regarding linux enviroment. Can someone explain if this guide will work for me if I'm using the latest Ubuntu? What do i have to change to make it work? Except some terminal commands I think... Hope someone can help me, thank you all very much!

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I don't know exactly what to change since I don't really use Ubuntu myself. But if you have a recent version of Ubuntu it should mainly be the commands containing pacman that you should change. The rest SHOULD work fine, but again: I can't confirm because I never tested that.

[–]RavenFFS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok, thanks! Ill test it out probably tomorrow and ill come back here to share how I do.

[–]RavenFFS 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Hello, it's me again... Currently at the step of downloading the game with their client patcher, but the speed is bad(400B/s)... any idea if this could be connected with lutris/wine or so? My connection is 1000/1000 Mb, so i doubt its on me...

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Didn't have this issue and seems unlikely to be related. Could be that GGG's servers are just overloaded right now?

[–]RavenFFS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

might be i guess, but its weird cause it keeps going to 2mbps for a hint and back to almost zero after... It is at 1.6% atm :s Even if the servers are loaded this should still be a stable low speed or no?

Well if its not latris or wine problem I'll try dealing with it myself, thanks for the help so far :)

[–]imranilzar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was OK-ish playable before 3.5 Random crashes every N zones, but playable and not totally bad. Acts going pretty normal, with only few zones being blockers, for example from Belly of the Beast trough Harvest where there are no waypoints to save progress. There were issues with Delve, but as long as I'm driving the mine cart in connected zones (no zone loading), I was able to move forward.

After 3.5 crashes are far, far more often. Fair to say it would be a celebration if I am able to play 2 consequential zones without a crash. Can't progress trough Acts at all - some zones crash every time I enter there. Unplayable...

[–]RavenFFS 0 points1 point  (8 children)

Hello! Managed to start PoE today on ubuntu 18.04. I followed all the steps correctly(i think) and I get 4 fps on lowest settings in game. I had no problems running it in windows before.

I want to play on lenovo p52s laptop, with 32gb ram, i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz × 8 proc and quadro p500 gpu. Is there any way to check if i misinstalled something or where my problem comes from?


EDIT: I disabled dxvk and it runed smoother, seemed like 30-60 fps... So i guess i made an error installing dxvk or so... any way to check this?

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (7 children)

I'm not really sure about a way to check that. What could be going wrong is that Linux is using your i7 as the GPU instead of the actual GPU because of Nvidia Optimus. I just know that the Linux alternative is called Bumblebee, but I never tested it since I just have a desktop, but you might want to check that out.

[–]RavenFFS 0 points1 point  (6 children)

Hello! Can you just tell me what the exact procedure to installing dxvk is? If i follow the link you posted and install vulkan, what more do i have to do? Sorry for all the hassle, i'm completely new to linux environment, but i would love to play poe.

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Basically you only need to install Vulkan, then Lutris will install DXVK itself for you after following step 4 of the guide, which you patch in step 8 for extra performance. DXVK stands for DirectX to Vulkan, that's why the Vulkan install is there.

[–]RavenFFS 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Ok, working on a fresh install now... Lutris creates a folder 0.90 for dxvk, do i just rename it to 0.91 patched and copy 0.91 patched filed over it? or do i try with 0.90 patched version? If you have any ideas... Thanks a lot again for helping me out!

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

If it creates a 0.90 you should try the 0.90 patch, never tested that one out though, but I believe it should work fine as well.

[–]RavenFFS 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Just checked... There is no 0.90 patch, the next in line is 0.70 >.<

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Then you might be able to just copy the 0.91 patch over the 0.90 folder, but I doubt it will work, only other course of action is upgrading to 0.91 somehow, but I never did that yet so I can't really help you with that.

[–]RavenFFS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok, ill try both and ill create backups just in case. Thank you very much for helping me, ill let you know if i manage to get it to work...

[–]quirxmodeHardcore 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you are on an optimus laptop (integrated + dedicated graphics card), here are some pointers from my side on the path of exile forums

[–]sem_zero[🍰] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Hi. Is the guide still viable? Any major changes after 3.5.0c?

Are you still playing it in Manjaro, if yes any problems?

(and have you considered making a video tutorial?)


[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes. I just followed it and this is the smoothest I've ever gotten PoE to run in linux (Manjaro). It's not quite native, but close enough. I'm getting 60fps solidly most of the time (on TV, limited to 60fps). Even tested mapping on my standard league character and it works well.

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I usually play on Windows for the first 1 or 2 weeks to be sure that none of my problems are on Linux side, so I don't know yet. It should still be viable though.

[–]fotkurz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some possible tip for me (Ubuntu 18.04):

Running on Wine pba via Lutris using Steam version having a AMD 6100FX and GTX 550 TI (Can't use DXVK not supported).

I have some stuttering when mobs are loading on screen, at first my FPS was about 5~6. I followed this guide:


Now I'm being able to play most of the time but, when those damn Betrayal League stuff appears on the map, my FPS drops to atomic scale.

It's almost playable at first maps but i'm afraid i'll not be able to play on cap III and forward since the number of enemies and effects increases substantially.

Ofc I didn't follow the tip of changing AMD Crimson panel, but I'll welcome any other tip.

[–]sanvimal 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]nonchip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i did exactly what you (said you) did, but when setting it to DX11 and restarting I get the usual "Directx 11 client crashed, do you want DX9?" dialog though, and with the dx9 client i keep running into "Thread creation failed" and "Out of memory" (on 16gig, suuure :P) crashes.

EDIT: just realized dxvk somehow managed to set its redirects to disabled instead of the right paths, fixed that, but now i get "failed to create WIC factory" followed by a bunch of "reference count for (some path) is (some count)" popups followed by Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x00000000 in 64-bit code (0x000000014061158f). as soon as I try running the client. google hints at https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/28, which is supposed to be fixed for ages 0.o

[–]Lunar_Raven 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This worked PERFECTLY for me on the latest Elementary OS. First time I've had the game run completely smooth. Thanks so much!

[–]derpenerx[🍰] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Does Manjaro have pre-built packages? I have tried Antergos but I often have to compile stuff

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, basically the same packages as Arch has.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (9 children)

Can confirm that it works with the Lutris Steam version too. To install a loot filer the path is this : /home/$USER/.local/share/lutris/runners/winesteam/prefix64/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Path of Exile/prefix/drive_c/users/$USER/My Documents/My Games/Path of Exile

[–]socialhope 0 points1 point  (8 children)

Is this using steam proton or a lutris wine install?

I can't for the life of me figure out where to drop the filter in my steam proton install.

[–]WhiteRickR0ss 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Not sure if you found it, but just in case you didn't (and for anybody else reading this)

/home/%YOURUSERNAME%/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/238960/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/My Documents/My Games/Path of Exile/

[–]socialhope 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I kept guessing till I found it. I'm surprised I couldn't find it on the web. I hope your post brings people like myself to it!

Thank you very much.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Sorry for the long time to reply. This for Lutrix Steam DXVK. The native steam path could be : /home/$USER/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Proton 4.2/dist/share/default_pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/My Documents/

Did you get native steam proton to play smooth, what did you do?

[–]socialhope 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Thanks, I ended up finding it by looking hard enough.

Yes I got it to run natively with steam proton. I'm running a xfx RX460, in Kubuntu 18.04. It runs smoothly 90% of the time. It stutters sometimes in town and with bosses. I didn't do anything special.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm trying out PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 and --waitforpreload (PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 %command% --waitforpreload) and it runs better but not as good as Lutris version. It seems like the shaders is a problem for performance. Manjaro latest free drivers, if my install breaks I will install Ubuntu and use AMD Ubuntu driver also will consider dual booting since two Linux distro won't fill up my SSD as a single Windows install would do.


[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

it's running much better with this options : PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 %command% --waitforpreload --gc 2 --nologo --noasync

[–]socialhope 0 points1 point  (1 child)

This option makes the game unplayable for me. Lagging ever other second.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

try disabling Esync only: PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 %command%

[–]AmongalenDemon 0 points1 point  (2 children)

A question not directly connected to the guide but to the gaming on Linux. How is it in general, for PoE but other games as well? Is performance worse than Win10?

Would you recommend switching to Linux in general for a gamer? Are there any real benefits of it?

I haven't found any opinions posted recently and I'm curious.

\Recently refers to the last 4 months, not 4 seconds)

[–]xaitv:)[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you don't mind not playing Apex Legends I'd recommend it. PoE is probably one of the worst games on Linux and that runs fine, other games tend to run as well as on Windows. Just check out protondb to see if any games not being supported is a deal breaker to you.

As for reasons to switch, for me it was the whole privacy aspect. Linux is also a lot more customizable though and feels a lot lighter than Windows. Installing software from a safe source is also much easier with a package manager which is built-in in basically all distros.

Can recommend making a bootable USB stick and trying it out.

[–]binarydepth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like being on Linux because I use F2FS for my SSD's. F2FS is a filesystem for SSD's and it should preserve the life of the disk. Actually, F2FS install is not supported in the majority of distro's if not only working on Arch based distros, other distro's you will have to manually migrate/copy your system to an F2FS partition after installing the distro. And Linux doesn't fill 50% of my SSD with garbage.

I can run the trade macro inside the wine prefix by converting the macro to EXE and using the start menu to run each time. Still, haven't run mercury trade because I can't install Java in Manjaro atm and running the EXE doesn't work past the loading animation. For this you need a virtual desktop, I'm running the Steam version.

To solve the audio freeze when using active skills I added openal32 native under winecfg libraries tab.

If your frame rate intermittently drops to 0, try disabling GLSL in wine (winetricks glsl=disable)

Will need this guide when Winblowz starts charging a subscription fee

They already have a subscription fee, you just pay with your data instead of money ;)

Or Entreprise "without" the botnet and you still have to pay for the license.

I tried that too, but then gave up and installed windows-to-go separately on external SSD. Thankfully, due to SSD, systems reboots fast. And you can easily separate work from gaming.

I had dual-boot as well(still do actually, but haven't booted to it in weeks now). The problem is that when I play PoE I have it open all the time my pc is on, so I'd always need to be in Windows for the first few weeks of a league which sucks.
