You need to fix linux native client. There are HUGE graphical glitches for linux gamers despite the existence of a native linux client:
nvidia users report that can play OK the game through proton - NOT native
radeon users (like me) cannot play through proton or with -force-vulkan because performance is terrible for some unknown reason. (I have a radeon 5600XT + Ryzen 5800X3D and get max 30 FPS through proton while I get 250 FPS natively)
see reported proton request here: Last Epoch (899770) · Issue #6642 · ValveSoftware/Proton · GitHub
The problem is that playing natively I get FLASHES either in mobs or the whole screen in some echoes, not all of them (i.e. I get flashes when sirens are in the screen. The problem is minimized (NOT ELIMINATED) if I use AMD_DEBUG=nodcc %command% and set volumetric lighting to “very low” and enable SMAA antialising. This means I also get a -30% performance in FPS.
I hate myself for booting windows in order to play despite I bought the game because of the linux client.
I have more than 100 hours in the game and tried hundreds of tinkering methods and settings to eliminate the flashes but it wasn’t possible to fully eliminate them. Either I’ll get epilepsy playing the game or I need to play it in windows… (see example of the flashes https://giphy.com/gifs/rJn9nMXqMaXOoQtU6G))
Not to mention the INVISIBLE character models in the character selection screen, which has been reported months ago ans still not fixed.
So please either FIX the native linux client or STOP selling it. I can play perfectly many many games that do not have native linux support through proton and I can’t play Last Epoch which supposedly has a linux native client.
PLEASE FIX! This is frustrating. If you can’t fix it, PLEASE work with Valve to improve proton so we can play the game from proton.
I have recorded gameplay which shows the whole screen blinking problem. If a dev replies and decides to work on the problem, I can post logs and additional videos showcasing the problem.
