The latest and greatest in fine Wine [Official Site] is out today with Wine 3.14 filled with features and the usual bug fixes including support for DXTn texture decompression.

Their feature highlights for this version:

  • Support for DXTn texture decompression (S3TC).
  • Deferral support for MSI install actions.
  • Support for Japanese keyboard in DirectInput.
  • More improvements in the standard Task Dialog.

Notably, they fixed issues with the Battle.net launcher, Cube World, multiple games were crashing with CSMT enabled, Wargaming Game Center had a fix and more.

Incredible:
Some games (DarkSiders, Dark Souls prepare to die edition) had some issues with the gamepad, they didn't detect it or the controls were badly emulated (the famous spinning camera bug).
It seems this problem does not occur anymore if you use Wine 3.14 and https://github.com/kozec/dumbxinputemu dll.
What did the Wine team changed with the xinput emulation?
