The real interesting news about Wine is this patch: https://dev.wine-staging.com/patches/submission/211/

It should be available in next Tuesday's Wine Staging (and if it doesn't make it by Tuesday, I'll publish a Wine build containing this patch on lutris.net)

Wonder if this will help Witcher 3 black texture bug related to d3d11_deferred_context_CopySubresourceRegion

It did ! Great work Witcher 3 plays like a dream now :)
*kewl* :)

I have started to play TW3 on Windows before I changed to 100% on Linux. But I'm not finished with the game and have the savegame files on the disk. Would be nice to whom I could once again put to the use without eye cancer to get (because of graphic bugs).

Thanks strycore, sounds good :)
The mesa-bug is still a show-stopper for me though.
Someone reported a freeze bug "Helium Rain" on discord, could be related.

mrdeathjr,

have you tried Fallout 4, lately?
ziabice 2 Sep, 2017
I don't know if I said this before, but I'm completely in love with the "Penguin drinking wine" icon and I wait for WINE news only to see it again and again! It makes me smile, don't ask me why, I found it very hilarious! :)

Yes, I also have a system-wide hang with the mesa bug. On the Helium Rain game.

Yeah normally DX10/11 progress is more notorious in staging

In my case have a 64bit prefix for lastest apps and this prefix is used with staging

And another prefix for 32bit apps, this prefix is used with vanilla wine
