[ SOLVED ] Wine + DXVK FPS Is Capped At 60

Hi folks!

As the title of the post suggests, I am not able to get framerate higher than 60 when playing games using Wine, however this is not the case when using Proton, with Proton I get 140-144 frames like I am supposed to get. I have so far tested this with 2 games in particular, Dark Souls Remastered and Blasphemous, both of them cracked. I have also installed DXVK on both wine prefixes.

Running Games

I am running the games through terminal in the following manner:

mangohud WINEPREFIX="/storage/Games/blasphemous_prefix" GAMEMODERUNEXEC="env __NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD=1 __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=nvidia" wine blasphemous.exe

The games run without any issues like stutters or lag but I am not able to get higher FPS. Unlike Dark Souls Remastered, Blasphemous shows a peculiar behavior i.e. when I launch the game I am getting 144 FPS till the "Press any key to continue" screen. Once I press a key to continue, the game goes from full screen to windowed mode and the FPS is capped at 60 from there.

GameMode

As you might have guessed from the command that I am using to run the game, I am on a hybrid GPU system, so I am using the command above as per this guide.

However, when I run gamemoded -s in another terminal when the game is running, i get "gamemode is inactive" message. But if I run like the following;

mangohud WINEPREFIX="/storage/Games/blasphemous_prefix" gamemoderun wine blasphemous.exe

I get "gamemode is active" message. But makes no difference, the game is capped at 60 FPS.

UPDATE 0x00

I tried setting FPS cap to 144 in GOverlay but that did not solve the issue. I wonder if this is related to the DLL components that I have installed?

UPDATE 0x01

According to this Blasphemous is capped at 60 FPS, same goes for Dark Souls Remastered.

Just going to keep the thread open until I test a different game.

UPDATE 0x02

This turns out to be game specific problem. Like I mentioned in my last update, both Dark Souls Remastered and Blasphemous are capped at 60 FPS, DOOM 2016 runs just fine as expected.

Closing the thread now.
