Fun fact: the fix for Worms 2 (GOG version) was made by a GOG community member by the name of immi101 :) Thanks immi101 for the fix :D

Hi folks,

Just found out that Wine 1.9.17 introduces a regression that breaks compatibility with No Man's Sky:

So if you want to continue playing the game and you are using a pre-compiled version from your distro, don't update to Wine 1.9.17.

But in other issues lastest origin update (OriginUpdate_10_0_1_23494) dont work still using IGO32.dll from OriginUpdate_9_5_20_5318

And needs have d3d11, d3d10, d3d10core and d3d10_1 disable in winecfg (wine prefix on windows xp) but if stay activated appears warning about not supported hardware

However for use OriginUpdate_9_5_20_5318 online you must login offline, once stay in origin push in go to online (before push this you must have internet connection active again)
