How to disable Vulkan and enable OpenGL?
I just want to make SLI effective but I find that the game is forced to Vulkan (on RivaTuner monitor) and there’s no option for changing it.

I am not sure you can.. But even then, if you take a look at DOOM, 1 gpu on vulkan was doing better and smoother than 2 on openGL. I have 2 gtx 1080 with 5930k (both full 16x pci-e lanes) and tested it yesterday.

SLI is not supported, same as Doom (2016).

You will either need to use nVidia Inspector and use the bits for Doom (as I doubt there are bits available for Wolf2 yet), or try some other profiles.

Word of warning, idTech 6 doesn't work well with SLI even in the best scenarios, and you will see either very poor/negative scaling, or severe micro stutter.

I have tried NvidiaInspector method and it didn’t work.

There is no openGL binary shipped with the game, so you are out of luck.

Doom works great with sli, worked better with a single card at launch but after some updates it uses my 2 cards well with good scaling.
Is this right thought that wolfenstein 2 aint gonna have opengl as an option?

I very much doubt it at this point.

Been moaning about this for a while now, OpenGL should have been an option as it was in Doom - I can play Doom in ultra settings @ 1080 using OpenGL.

Wolfenstein I can barely play in Low settings with vastly reduced resolutions which is a joke and along with the all the other bugs in this game WTF are they doing.

Older nvidia cards have more issues with the Vulkan API - why do these developers force the way forward with and an unpolished API - I don't need to spend more money on my PC.

Because Nvidia pays them too.

More likely because it would significantly increase the QA burden for every graphical feature.

I have Doom and use SLI, it works great, Sad to read that this game doesn't use SLI because I was thinking of getting it.
