Wine 3.11 and Wine Staging 3.11 both got released recently

By - | Views: 9,676

Wine 3.11 (insert joke about Wine for Workgroups 3.11) is the latest development release of the compatibility layer allowing you to play Windows games on Linux. 

Here's the highlights from the latest release:

  • More debugger support for Wow64 processes.
  • Support for sha256/sha384 hashes in ECDSA signatures.
  • Better reporting of hyper-threaded CPUs.
  • Improvements to the standard Task Dialog.

In terms of bugs they noted as being fixed there's only 12 this time around. Do remember though, that the number could be a lot higher. A lot of these are based on user reports of issues being solved.

We've also just seen the release of Wine Staging 3.11, although I don't really know what they're doing lately since they don't post changelogs since the change in developers. You can see some of what's changed thanks to being able to compare on GitHub, although that's really quite technical stuff and not exactly easy to comprehend. I miss the proper changelogs, they were nice for a dum-dum like me to keep up to date on it.

The bug fix done to Mod Organizer 2.1.2+ usvfs system isn't a 100% fix, all it does is allow it to load but not mount anything sadly. Maybe next time.

Let me guess, Mod Organiser is a .NET application?

I don't think MO2 is, but possibly the usvfs system is. I might install dotnet462slim but I doubt it will make any different (hasn't in the past).

Hi , you look like a hardcore Wine user. Can you help me with Skyrim LE?

I'm on 3.11 Staging and running Skyrim SE but i have problems with it.

Shadows and textures are glitchy. There are some advices about disabling nvapi but look like it is not relevant. Only nvapi64 is on there and disabling it is not helping.

Input lag. I have mouse/keyboard lag with that game.

Underwater is not rendering at all.

Some keys do not work , like I for accessing inventory.

How did you end up running correctly without problems?

Nvidia 396.24.2 driver

Isn't Skyrim SE DX11? In which case you should give DXVK a go :)

Finally! After 7 years of existence bug with flickering sky in Mafia 2 was fixed in 3.11! Now the game runs near perfect!
