example of font rendering issue

Fedora 30 kernel 5.3rc2
Mesa-git - 19.2 git a69ab1b7
llvm - 10 gitba47e51

GPU RX 5700XT (navi 10)

Present with both DXVK and wined3d, RADV or even amdvlk

Fonts appear cut in half on the diagonal of each character. So far only found in Overwatch, other proton games appear to render fonts correctly

Moving this to Vulkan / RADV bug

Loading the game up under the latest amdvlk from 26/7 renders the fonts correctly (albeit with artefacts that are inherent to that build at the moment on Navi10). It seems I was mistaken under my initial testing, the game fails to render at all under wined3d.

Mesa: 19.2 git 39a90749
LLVM: 10.0 git git4575679
Kernel: 5.2.3 with DRM-NEXT patchset

Anyone able to get a renderdoc capture for this?
Comment 6 Bas Nieuwenhuizen 2019-08-10 12:45:03 UTC
Seems like a Geometry Shader issue with NGG (primitive shaders). You can specify RADV_DEBUG=nongg as a workaround for now.
Comment 7 Matt 2019-08-11 04:22:06 UTC
confirming that RADV_DEBUG=nongg workaround fixes the font rendering

Should be addressed by https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/commit/c037fe5ad1b3556809e5a549306a52a8a8bd1cbf
