Is anyone doing regular Witcher 3 tests with the new releases of Wine? I didn't buy the game and there isn't any demo, so I have no idea how far DX11 support has progressed.

Don't buy any DX11 game until there will be an overwhelming proof that it works, because right now DX11 support is early in development.

Back with some tests appears interesting things case this

Before crysis work are needed patch (rico non official patch) and however in bug report related game crash after first scene, wine devs said as wont be fixed

Another form to entry in game require have save game but when entry in game if you move mouse game crash and this bug also solved too

Almost forget once begins game kill punkbusterb process (punkbusterb give loss performance)

But in lastest wine some games case dinasty warriors 8, one piece pirate warriors 3 (maybe others) asking for double buffer and now works (and issue in crysis have relation with double buffer)

In another test appears other interesting issue, this have relation with run some games from steam

View video on

In flatout ultimate carnage can be see how is game is launched (from steam) fps drops until 1 fps but if you runs game since another terminal back to run normally (can be use WINEDEBUG=+fps for see fps)

Without forget you need nodvd for flatout ultimate carnage, with steam launcher game runs bad still using another console

And you most need msvcm80 - msvcp80 - msvcr80 on flatout ultimate carnage binary folder and configurated as native in winecfg

For xlive issue you can use jsMSI Unpacker for extract from xlive redistribuble (this file stay on supported files in game folder): xlive.dll, and xlivefnt.dll, once have this files must be put on flatout binary folder

Or can try test in my dropbox wine fixes folder, in thme have some things for solve some problems

View video on

In lords of the rings return of the king appears somthing similar, this time cause delay in audio in cinematics and back fps performance seriously in various temporaly freezes (around 1 to 2 seconds)

But if you run in another console directly game back to runs normally: audio correctly sync with video and fps performance back to normal

View video on

In Ys origin appears some similar issue, this time if you runs game with or without console game stay freezes in main menu (around 1 fps maybe less)

But if you have ys origin binary from gog release and runs with other console game runs normally, if try since steam game runs bad again

However cinematics problems still remain if stay activated some intro sequence works but screen stay in black and dont allow continue

View video on

But in middle of before described situations for example in Ys Oath in Felghana dont occur that, this game can be runs since steam with out problem (except cinematics same problem of ys origin)

Another title affected launching game since steam is alan wake, if you runs since steam fps drop to 2 to 5fps but if you launch another console game back to normally (however needs nodvd for solve too, maybe alan wake binary can works too)
