    Does this release include that Wine improvement patch by Stefan Dösinger?
    The patch that improves Direct3D performance.


    aaannz commented on 14 September 2013 at 10:00 am UTC

    I don't think so. Nothing about D3D command stream in git log.

    That's a shame. I'm having a hard time figuring out how to compile it myself. Unlike other patches which are just text and I can generally compile myself, this one seems to use git (which I have no clue about) and apparently it's not just one patch.

    To make it work You will need 1.7.1 version.
    Start by getting git version from http://www.winehq.org/git

    to accomplish this do:
    git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git wine-git
    then enter newly created wine-git directory.

    After that get version 1.7.1 by using git:
    git reset --hard wine-1.7.1
    This should get You version 1.7.1.

    Now in other terminal extract cs.tar.bz2 into for example /tmp directory. I will use /tmp dir as reference from now on.

    Go back into terminal with wine directory(You should be inside it), and run following command:
    git am /tmp/cs/*

    It will apply all the patches cleanly.

    Now You have a patched wine.


    Sabun commented on 14 September 2013 at 11:29 am UTC

    Thank you for the instructions sobkas. Currently the cs.tar.bz2 I have is from the reddit page. So, whenever  I try to do git am /tmp/cs/* I get:
    Patch format detection failed.

    I think I have the wrong cs file. Where else can I get cs.tar.bz2 from? I'm scouring the wine-devel list, but I think I'm not looking in the right place or just not seeing it.

    EDIT:  I think I found it in the wine-devel list. Strangely it downloads as attachment-1.bin but after renaming it to cs.tar.bz2 it's definitely correct.

    So You were able to apply the patches or not?


    Sabun commented on 14 September 2013 at 12:00 pm UTC

    Yes, I was able to. Thank you. I am compiling it now
    Can't wait to try it. In regedit I also have to enable CSMT right? What about the StrictOrderDraw?

    Enable CSMT and disable StrictOrderDraw, that should be enough.

    or if you are using arch based distro then use this:
    https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/wine-d3dstream/

    i made a simple pkgbuild to compile
    make sure you edit the make flags in /etc/makepkg.conf to take advantage of multiple cores when compiling
    took me 6 mins on my 8 core FX 8320 @ 4.0 ghz
