battle.net heroes of the storm

2. day old linux user here, taking the leap from win10.

Just installed Battle.Net and from there Heroes of the Storm and thought it would run with some glitches, but it won't run at all.
The game interface is extremly laggy and when pressing play it just hangs.

How do I enable some better GFX drivers for my Nvidia 1060 card ?
I do have the latest drivers installed and activated.

cheers

Welcome to the club!

It would help if we knew what distro you are running this on.

I am having a similar problem.  I am using Ubuntu 18.04 latest version of Crossover. Battle.net installed fine, Heroes loaded fine (everything looks good) I am actually able to move through the menus quite swiftly but when I try to enter a match, it loads the screen, appears to start then crashes back to Battle.net launcher...

Wondering if I should try downloading the "WoW" build of Crossover?

Supposing that both of you are on Ubuntu, are you using the drivers from the Ubuntu repositories or a PPA, or the installer from Nvidia (if for an Nvidia card). The drivers from Ubuntu's repos are notoriously out of date. It might be worth the effort of getting the newest drivers.

nVIdia drivers v. 396 are needed for recent games.

Also, you need a wine build with Vulkan because these games are dropping DirectX 9 support. Vulkan supports DirectX 11 and 12. Though CodeWeavers helped in the development of Steam Play, that runs nearly all Windows Steam games with Vulkan, they did not include Vulkan in Crossover... yet!

Meanwhile, you can try PlayOnLinux or pure wine with some build that includes dxvk.

I still coldn't make time to put my Starcraft II to work, but I will!

Good luck!

Yep, running nVIDIA.  It says I'm running v 396.24 ...  the search continues.  :)  Thanks for the response though!

hmmmm...  I don't suppose they are going to implement this any time soon?  I'll go ahead and download PlayOnLinux and Wine.  I just recently converted from Windows 10, but I'm not scared of getting my hands dirty or blowing up my install as I learn (actually, it's kinda fun, reminds me of when I first started when TRS-80 machines were actually something)
