Cyberpunk 2077

HI, so everywhere i search i see the game work fine with an amd gpu so what i need to play the fucking game.

  • Cyberpunk 2077 is now playable ( requires an AMD GPU and Mesa git ).

Also how it hasn t be done before regarding it s litterally the most wanted game of the year

We need a driver that works with the game,
a valve dev told that we need VK_VALVE_mutable_descriptor_type extension

please nvidia release a driver that fixes the issues

Unfortunately they just considered the more relevant GPUs in their update…

any info on a potential update ? when willl they implement extensions on beta driver ?

i was abble to launch the game trough steam. Just have to wait nvidia fixe their stupid driver for shader cache to work again and should be good. Also even if teh game launch they r is something wrong about graphic it doesn t feel right

So, is support fort VK_VALVE_mutable_descriptor_type being worked at all? Any official communication on the topic from Nvidia?

Sadly not even that works for me. Crashes when pressing play in the CDPR Launcher. I hope Nvidia is working on a beta driver with fixes!


trys this config also i had update mesa to git and vkd3d to valve git. Also change steam-runtime to beta same for the soldier one

I thought mesa was only needed on systems with Radeon graphics card?!

im no expert but with nvidia closed source driver u need the linux-video who is open source and when i installe mesa i think it s install linux-video driver. Also my manjaro comme with it even if im on nvidia

Ok, thanks for the info. I think I’m already using latest mesa drivers, from https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/ubuntu/graphics-drivers but I dont’t know how to update vkd3d to valve git. Could you provide help please?

i dont know i just install the package that was availlable on aur. It could be working with the right proton if it s include in it but dont have all the knowledge how it s work so … can t tell u more than that

Ok, thanks nonetheless.

Well… still nothing with the 455.50.02 driver…

Guess its time to jump ship and go AMD. Atleast you are not 100% in the hands of whimsy companies that cba to implement stuff ppl want :)

guess i kknow which brand my next gpu will not be

“Well… still nothing with the 455.50.02 driver…”???

Well???

What are you talking about?

Why are you still using 455.xx?

What about the 455.xx.xx Driver? nVidia Driver 460 has been out for a month?

Did you not read the nVidia-460-Driver release? See anything different??

Are you using kernel 5.10.6+ ?

Plently of people are playing CyberPunk as well as it can be played.
Its a rubbish unicorn evaluation scam junk thing anyway.

Or is it you just love Keanu?

See ProtonDB, Proton_Github, Reddit, YouTube…People that have rtfm are good to go.

Your on a nVidia Linux Dev. Forum and your contribution is:

Is your System even close to being configured properly?

You could have provided your full-system logs and output and got some feed back as what needs to be fixed.
Where your going wrong because you havent read the manual.

Have you benched the graphics acceleration and system performance?

Is it on OpenBenchmarch?

So this awesome gaming rig of yours:…

Is the hardware matched? and the nVidia Card is in the correct PCI-e slot? for the read and addressing?

Is it some AMD boards that address PCI backwards on Linux?

Was your Mboard state setting confirmed as Pure UEFI-BIOS ? before you installed your Linux Distro?

Did you update UEFI-BIOS before you installed your Distro. and nVidia-Driver?

And SecureBoot was [DISABLED] ? and CSM [DISABLED] ? and these remained [DISABLED]? ,
and CPU PAT [ ENABLED ] in the BIOS aswell if applicable?

On Board or UEFI-BIOS IGP or DGP graphics turbo boost [ Disabled] if needed

SecureBoot can cause instability, instalation and poor performance on DKMS built modules?

ie: usually wireless.

And PCI-e 64-bit BAR Support is [ ENABLED ] in theUEFI-BIOS ?

And you’ve confirmed your GPU / System Addressing is in sync and then increased the size of the DMA-Buffer so its not defaulting to a legacy 32-bits expansion ROM protocol with a max allowed access to 4G of RAM?

And because the nVidia Driver doesnt support “SWIOTLB” . A Hardware specific solution to the “SWIOTLB” issue has been Applied? Like the generic ‘iommu=memaper’ kernel parameter.

When the nVidia Driver was installed did you kill X11 and all running GL Applications. Then once the driver was installed you checked that the “GLX” and “NV-GLX” extensions are present, symlinking is correct and the correct libraries and pointers are being used? and confirmed no theres no Cache Aliasing?

And also checked that theres no incorrect and simulateous conflicting usage of FXAA, UUD, Full-composition Pipline and other antialiasing methods? or conflicts.

And after install was PCI.ID update run from a recent repository source? And FirmwareUpdate and Lm-sensors --recommends? and extended ACPI functionality set up?

And no 3rd Party powermanagerment Apps or consertive CPU scheduler have been installed ?.

Should UBB enabled? Color depth right for the App? Are the Monitor(s) being over driven by the GPU?

Is Buffer allocation and submission to DRM KMS and Gnome GDM Display manager being used? Thats a problem.

Are the nVidia recommended number of allocated video surfaces being used by NVIDIA VDPAU?

Are the official recommended boleans being used?

Is the change in default OpenGL/Vulkan Shader Disk Caches location and size being utilized? 128MB to 1024MB

This is a slice odf the options for the driver.

AMD Open Source Graphics ???

maybe ColecoVision is more your style. :}

im using 460, cache ( since 3 month now ) still doesnt work and cb2077 run with latest proton experimental with granular texture and random crash and some mission who hard crash but u can be lucky the 30 time u run it. The issue is driver side u need the vk extensions. and the issue is now live since 1 month. The main issue is nvidia saying fu to all the open source comunity with driver not even better than their concurencce for what ? And maybe u should look at proton db and github proton it will help u see the issue is nvidia side except making new driver i can t do anything to run cb2077 better, it s writtne in top in github page . And it was the most expecting game of last year and still dont run on nvidia hardware tell me what are your conclusions ?

  • bigboss37330: " Im using 460," ?
  • What?
  • nVidia Driver 460.32.03?
  • From where? Ill guess Ubuntu Graphics PPA.
  • bigboss37330: " Cache ( since 3 month now ) still doesnt work? "
  • What Cache still doesnt work?
  • ??? bigboss37330: " and cb2077 run with latest proton experimental with granular texture "
  • What are you trying to say here? Your running Proton w/ Granular texture??? Is this a custom Launch option?
  • bigboss37330: " and random crash and some mission who hard crash but u can be lucky the 30 time u run it."
  • Ok, So your saying it randomly crashes. And some missions hard crash at playing CP2077 for 30mins at the most.
  • Correct?
  • bigboss37330: " The issue is driver side u need the vk extensions and the issue is now live since 1 month "
  • So your saying that the issue with CP2077 failing is because the nVidia-460-driver needs Vk-Extensions? Yes?
  • How did you diagnose this to be the case?
  • bigboss37330: “The main issue is nvidia saying fu to all the open source comunity with driver not even better than their concurencce for what ?”
  • I thought the nVidia 460 Driver Vk Extension issue was the problem?
  • " OPEN SOURCE AT NVIDIA | NVIDIA Developer "
  • bigboss37330:And maybe u should look at proton db and github proton
  • it will help u see the issue is nvidia side except making new driver
  • bigboss37330: i can t do anything to run cb2077 better, it s writtne in top in github page .
  • bigboss37330: " And maybe u should look at proton db and github proton "

Firstly Id like to add that I have nothing to do with The nVidia Corporation.
And I cannot see any reason why anyone Gaming with Proton Linux on personnel equipment would not be using nVidia-460 w/ Kernel 5.8+.

I realise this issue is important to you…

So theres just a few questios I have:

  • Why didnt you provide FULL Hardware and System Specifications?
  • Why didnt you provide FULL Display and Hardware Video Acceleration Information?
  • Why didnt you provide FULL and Complete UEFI-BIOS configuration?
  • Why didnt you provide FULL description of …and list any custom configurations, patches or modules
  • for your installed Kernel, Distro, Distro Release, Desktop Environment, Firmware and Drivers?
  • Would you be able to provide this information with logs and output including from Steam Linux Client and Proton?
  • To nVidia Linux and Valve Proton. Its obvious you would hesitate in contributing this information
  • for the betterment of the Open Source Software Community and its on going Development.
  • And while your at it. Use Phoronix Test Suit to benchmark your set up and then upload it to Open Benchmark.
  • This would be another great contribution from you to the Open Source Software Community.
  • So I’m going to assume your hardware can actually run the game in the fisrt place…
  • Because you contributed no usable information to this Forum or thread.
  • Can you confirm the following? And reference the nVidia-460 driver README found on the Additional Information page on the link provided below to make sure its accurate to your specific hardware… Thank!
  • Pure UEFI-BIOS?, NO Secureboot?, NO CSM?, NO SWIOTLB?, CPU-PAT [ENABLED]?, PCI-e 64Bit Bar Support
  • [ENABLED]?.
  • nVidia doesnt support Swiotlb.
  • Check that “GLX” and “NV-GLX” extensions are present?
  • Is the Symlinking is CORRECT?
  • Are correct SymLinks and Libraries being used?
  • nVidia uses zero Mesa. It is a completely seperate Graphics Stack.
  • Have you confirmed that theres no Cache Aliasing?
  • Is eCHI / xHCI handover disabled? This can be a HUGE! cause of instability.
  • Is Unified Back Buffer [ENABLED] ?:
  • RTX and Quadro Only
  • Are the recent changes in the Default OpenGL / Vulkan Shader Disk Caches,
  • Location change and Size expansion being utilized? From 128MB to 1024MB.
  • NOTE! You will need to Kill the xserver and all running GL processes. Check that they are dead. Purge any mesa and exist nVida including obsolete removed package configs then update initramfs and grub. Reboot. do the same again and the install the nVidia-460-driver and check it installed correctly…

*Also

  • As explained in the Driver Release the USER most likely has to ENABLE this!
  • What nVidia-Settings booleans have you enabled? Are they correct to use? Are there any that conflict with each other?
  • Are the nVidia recommended number of " Allocated Video Surfaces" being used by NVIDIA VDPAU?
  • Has fwupd and pcutils-update run?
  • ACPI and i2C [ENABLED]?,
  • Sane VDPAU Mutlithreading [ ENABLED ]
  • Have you checked that theres no Incorrect DPI / Resolution overdriving Monitor? (GPU)?
  • Have you enabled the UnOfficial / Unsupported Protocols by nVidia? (Non-Linux Approved) ?
  • Should you?
  • " NVIDIA DRIVERS Linux x64 (AMD64/EM64T) Display Driver "
  • " NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Graphics Driver README and Installation Guide "

Proton Performance: nVidia with Mesa Issues
The X-server and all running GL processes MUST be stopped and confirmed “KILL’d”, at the install of the nVidia Driver.
If this isnt done it will (more than likely) lead to multiple issues and poor Driver performance or Driver failure.
https://www.khronos.org/opengl/wiki/Getting_Started#Linux

  • The nVidia Driver does support SWIOTLB. If present will likely result in Kernel Panic when under resource load.
  • If 64bit DMA BUFFER support isnt enabled? The DEFAULT allowed acces is a Max 4G of RAM at legacy rom 32bit.

If you are using PROTON / nVidia and having issues strongly I recommend checking out the links below and reading the READMEs.

http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/460.32.03/README/index.html
What was the cause of that?

There can be some issues with Gnome and nVidia as well.

Please get this done quickly and repost with information requested.

tHIS IS SO EXCITING!

Hmm… I wonder if “username.murphy” is some kind of automated reply-bot or something?

Hopefully he(or the bot) IS aware that what “we all are waiting for” is the vulkan extension: VK_VALVE_mutable_descriptor_type

This extension is not mentioned in the 460.32.03 (from 7 january), and sadly is not mentioned where it would most likely make its appearance first: Vulkan beta 455.50.02 (from 19 january).

All that other rabble you (or whatever bot this is) managed to spew out is somewhat completely irrelevant to this topic.

Incase you are NOT a bot, and would like to know why this vulkan extension is needed, here is the info the makers of proton’s vkd3d (d3d12 library) posted:
https://github.com/HansKristian-Work/vkd3d-proton/commit/49ed5beb6325c4e418a63618b1c35f22ac2928c7

Now, it is not directly said that “will never work without this”, but it is kinda clear that it is required to have usable performance atleast. The most likely spot this ext will pop FIRST, is in the nVidia Vulkan Beta driver (per now: 455.50.02)

Hopefully you ALSO know that in nVidia terms: Higher driver version is NOT the same as “better driver”, cos the stuff tested for vulkan beta (new extensions ++) will trickle down/up to the release/whql/beta drivers eventually, but will FIRST pop in the Vulkan beta series. It has been mentioned several times on the various GIT issues, that the recommended “best supported” driver for nVidia would be the Vulkan beta series due to more vulkan extensions.

Please stop feeding the troll…
