Until this version I've used for SpellForce 2 WINE 1.3.18 because of the ugly graphics error and glitch. But now it is removed the game also got improved performance through the WINE 1.7.x-series. Very good update! I'll also give a try to F.E.A.R. 2 from GOG later this day.

I wonder how Witcher 1 performs. I've been trying to get it to work correctly (there is a fix out there for the transparent people, but the shadows still look off, well that and I couldn't figure out how to get my save game from my windows machine to be recognized under the version running under Wine.)

So true...

@Liam, I noticed that page 2 is rendering somewhat incorrectly on mobile phones, with items being too large for the page. Maybe an issue related tho the video in the comments ?

It's the issue of me generating tables using some scrub script in python, will take a look what can be done.

@slaapliedje What graphics do you have? I got Witcher 1 working on an Intel HD4000, I didn't see a visual bug the whole way through, although I couldn't play on max settings though due to fps issues (related to my crappy card)

Step by step wine improves in lastest wine 1.7.47 and upper, especially since jozef kuzia add patch for vextex blending issue

Some titles begins work correctly (titles affected for vertex blending issue) like as tron 2.0, no one lives forever 2, shade wrath of angels, pure (problem with character rendering), death to spies, death to spies moment of truth and others

@mrdeathjr: Did you have a test for Prototype? The last try I gave in was not the best I got only ugly artifacts when animation for characters was used. Would like to play the game also on Linux. Perhaps the vertex blending also solves this one? Or is there a special trick for Prototype to be used?

Hi i finish test prototype as you ask

View video on youtube.com

Since last time tested some issues with vertex are corrected however some character animation movements a stay loss* but dont grave

*Especially notorious when you run to up high buildings

Prototype have tested with lastest nvidia driver 355.00.05 aka Nvidia OpenGL 2015 Driver (maybe more later test some native games)

Other game tested with this driver is: magical battle festa and runs very good however needs wmf11dist.exe for play cinematics and app config is really hard to config

However once stay configurated and save settings file saved problems are solved in this issue

View video on youtube.com

Is impressive like commented before titles like house of the dead 3 have corrected issues

Other very interesting case have relation with divine divinity II, this title shows various problems once of them stay if you break any box or barrel game crash and other stay when begins second chapter (dont can pass first trees after this game crash)

View video on youtube.com

And now is possible break box or barrels without game crash and also possible stay more deeply in forest without game crash too
