Failed units:

First off, I think you should reboot and install the proprietary drivers with the HW assistant (Garuda Welcome - > Garuda Settings Manager - > Hardware Configuration).
Then, you should run the game with prime-run.
E.g. see:

Looks like you have the intel graphics driver but no NVIDIA driver installed.

Hi, I know where to find the drivers, but which one I use?

Button auto install proprietary drivers
Anyway, we are still waiting for your garuda-inxi. This could make a difference.

Look at the 5th replay...

And tnx =)

Just check as you are dual booting windows that you have fast boot and secure boot disabled in your bios then try again to install drivers

I am not dual booting..

If they conflict you have to remove one of them and try again.
I never heard about supergfxctl, so maybe you could remove it.
But maybe someone knows better.
I read once it was suggested for Asus laptops, but I don't have one, so didn't really went into details...
Actually I think optimus-manager is being auto installed pushing the button, so you'd better remove the other. Or simply install the Nvidia drivers manually

This suggests you took an update but did not reboot. It's not necessarily a problem, but if something is not working as expected it might be worth rebooting to see if it makes a difference.

OK, installed the drivers. How do I know if my game running on the GPU? The drivers update manually?

(sorry for making life hard, but I'm trying to understand in the best possible way :sweat_smile:)
