They need to figure out the DRM scheme behind it first as well as get DX11 working about as well as Direct X 9.

You can keep track of Overwatch's bug here:

They add much support for dx11 but is dx9 support even complete?

It's probably not complete but it's damn close and they are constantly tweaking things here and there.

I haven't had any issues running any DX9 game yet unless it required several winetricks or registry hacks...

I really (really!) wish I had the smarts to configure Winetricks etc to get games working reliably with Wine, but I just don't. It's like another language. Not even PlayOnLinux works for me very often. I'm afraid the only way I take advantage of Wine is through official ports. But that's okay as long as Wine ports don't discourage native development! I just have to hope that doesn't happen... everything is so uncertain! Agh!

In this wine version more CSMT work is added (but in game tested seems similar to 1.9.13)

In other case like unreal 2003, d3d mode runs better (maybe buffer management have relation ?) compared before versions (tested sometime ago) and opengl also works without problem


Direct3D

OpenGL

However try serious sam 2 opengl mode but crash at begin, on direct3d mode works without problem


In other test legend of kay DX11 begins work

View video on youtube.com

However in before versions runs more slow and crash after main menu, main menu still dont visible

But now is posible entry in game but have several textures missing

I noticed Sniper Elite V2 started working with 1.9.14 (something that's never happened before in all the years I've owned it), but crashed after 2 seconds of playing the developer animation. At least it had sound, the correct aspect ratio, was properly maximized, etc. Only two seconds, but the game was working perfectly for those two seconds. Making progress!

You mean Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army? Yes, that's correct. Same engine.
