Bottle preferences

You can change your bottle preferences at any time to improve software compatibility.

This is one of the most important sections, here you can configure and tweak your bottle.

This page is divided into four sections:

  • Graphics

  • System

  • Audio

  • Developers & Debug

In the Graphics section you can set up some graphics related utilities, e.g. you can toggle DXVK, VKD3D, DLSS, FSR, LatencyFleX or choose to use a virtual desktop with a custom resolution or make Bottles use your discrete GPU (for dual-gpu laptops, like optimus, this will improve performances at the cost of increased power usage).

From the System section you can:

  • change the components (runner, dxvk...) versions

  • choose the synchronization type

  • change the Windows version

  • change the working directory (the path where the executable will be executed)

  • register new DLL Overrides and environment variables

  • manage drives for accessing files inside bottle

  • and more...

In the Audio section you can toggle the "Reduce PulseAudio latency" feature which improves the audio quality for some games.

The Developer & Debug section offers some utilities for developers. Here you can show the wine fixme logs and enable the DXVK HUD or MangoHud to display the FPS counter, draw calls, dxvk versions and other information.


Runtime is a lib bundle which maintains the compatibility for installers, it is available by default on Flatpak packages instead for other package types (e.g AUR, Fedora, …) you will need to install it from the program preferences.
