Shows you how to apply DXVK patches for CrossOver to make your games run smoother.

What are the benefits of the DXVK update patch?

It allows more games to run smoother without any stutters.

Will this break CrossOver?

No, it will not.

How much space on my hard drive will it take up?

5-10 MB.

How do I Install the DXVK patch?

  1. Download the latest DXVK release from the DXVK GitHub Repository and make sure it's the dxvk-macOS-async-v*.*.*-***-CrossOver.tar.gz zip file
  2. Extract the ZIP
  3. Open the dxvk-macOS-async-v*.*.*-***-CrossOver folder and then open the x64 folder
  4. Copy all the files (to your clipboard) in that x64 folder
  5. Locate your CrossOver Bottle (~/Library/Application Support/CrossOver/Bottles/[bottle name])
  6. Open the drive_c folder
  7. Open the windows folder
  8. Finally, open the system32 folder
  9. You should be in this directory: ~/Library/Application Support/CrossOver/Bottles/[bottle name]/drive_c/windows/system32
  10. Paste all the DLLs in
  11. Click on Apply to All and then click Replace
  12. Quit your Bottle in CrossOver then quit CrossOver itself.
  13. Restart CrossOver and run your games.
  14. Should be smoother now! (Only applies to DirectX 9, DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 games!)
