Wine 3.6 is out with work towards high DPI support and BattlEye fixes

Posted by , | Views: 11,010

Wine 3.6 is now officially available with some new features and a healthy dose of bug fixes to keep Wine users happy.

In terms of feature highlights, here's what's in:

  • Support for PNG format icons.
  • Support for 1D textures.
  • More infrastructure for high DPI support.
  • OLE data cache improvements.

This time around, it seems quite a few bugs were noted as fixed, 53 in fact. Some notable bugs that got fixed were seven specific to BattlEye, along with multiple games requiring a "d3d11_device_CreateTexture1D" implementation (Need For Speed: The Run, Sniper Elite V2, Overwatch, Battlefield 3), along with fixes for Cuphead and plenty more. As a reminder though, not all noted bugs were specifically fixed in this release, some were fixed earlier and only updated now.

Quite an exciting release in terms of bug fixes there.

I attempted to run H1Z1, it managed to Install the battleye service, but wouldn't launcher would not launch the game. Was going to try Fortnite Battle Royale, but couldn't get the epic games launcher to run, despite various suggestions on Appdb

@WineDevs -- if anyone is reading -- you guys are doing amazing!

One of the more anticipated features you guys could work on for me would be mainlining GTK3 support from wine-staging.

Keep up the amazing work, you guys are paving the way along with MESA, Gnome, KDE and all the other big teams working hard toward a common future. Great work!

Can someone try to run Street Fighter V. The results from winehq are too old...

I tried and PUBG is also not working (Yet). It installs Battleye but fails to launch the game. If I try to launch it again it only says starting Battleye service...
