trying to play fallout new vegas on my nvidia 3050 and i got this error:

"Started initial process 3453 from gamemoderun /app/bin/wine /home/CataclysmicGentleman/Games/gog/fallout-new-vegas/drive_c/GOG Games/Fallout New Vegas/FalloutNVLauncher.exe
Start monitoring process.
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'dxvk:: DxvkError'
Monitored process exited.
Initial process has exited (return code: 768)
Exit with return code 768"

ive gotten mixed answers online and honestly dont need the stress so im just gonna ask.

I am using LMDE 6, ive got an intel i5, a NVIDIA 3050, ive gotten games on steam to work fine- minecraft too. this is the first time ive run into this issue (also the first time trying to use lutris on my laptop) 16 gb of ram, and kernel is 6.1

if you want more info look no further:

@f33dm3bits is very good with gaming.
Let's see what he says.

In the meantime check your driver manager for your Nvidia card.
"Started initial process 3453 from gamemoderun /app/bin/wine /home/CataclysmicGentleman/Games/gog/fallout-new-vegas/drive_c/GOG Games/Fallout New Vegas/FalloutNVLauncher.exe

I mostly game using Steam, this looks like you are using Lutris? Do you have DxVk installed?
How do I check if I have DxVk?
Run this command and it will show you if it's installed or not.
dpkg -L DxVk

If the capital letters don't get recognized (command not found or other unhelpful output) just type dxvk instead.
