Great to see Just Cause 2 starting to semi-work. I'd like to play that one again in my Steam library.

Now the real test will be Grand Theft Auto 5. That is a DirectX 10 game as well.

However this type of games use warp for directx10 (case sleeping dogs and others), maybe can try another titles

Another title shows some progress is akibas trip, now shows loading screen and warning screen

xblade code embryo shows black screen but sound work correctly

I can tell you that Metro 2033 and Metro 2033 Redux is not exactly the same game. I played both; the original on my win XP machine and the Redux on SteamOS 1.0... I hate Deepsilver for not porting the original Metro 2033 to linux like they did with the original Metro: Last Light

I don't like the Redux because the achievements are broken, the Vsync doesn't work and the antialiasing sucks... In the linux version of the original Metro: Last light those bugs are not present...

Now that I have Crossover, first I'm gonna try Tomb Raider, and after, Metro 2033.

Good to see my Into the Stars bug get reported :P

Now I am waiting for several bugs related to other UE4 games to get fixed...

Nice too see all these d3dx10 improvements! I also own Just Cause 2 and can't wait to play it!

The original Metro should work fine, but check the Wine apps database because it probably needs some tweaks

Tomb raider works super fine with Wine!

But your cpu is too weak* (for DX10 needs more cpu)

*Same case as life is strange native where you cant run game (weak cpu)

Maybe could try upgrade your cpu (intel haswell at 4ghz or upper is highly recommended) or wait next year for zen

I just did what I said in another gamingonlinux post

Right now I am downloading Tomb Raider in the windows version of the Steam client that running on Ubuntu 14.04.3 through Crossover 15.2

I will report the results on Twitter and here.
