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

Posted by , | Views: 11,000

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.

GuestHeh, maybe time to give it a try again... What's the advised way to install Steam ? Specific prefix ? Tweaks required ?

Hmm, not sure I want to count as a Windows user though ;)
Just a base install of steam on wine, honestly quickest way is to use lutris because then you can instantly choose the latest build of wine from manage wine list tab.

Street fighter V seems like to have the same problem I had with Battlefield 1. Did you try setting nvapi64 to disabled?

gustavoyaraujoCan someone try to run Street Fighter V. The results from winehq are too old...
Wouldn't even start for me.

I installed the GOG version of METRO 2033 Redux, and it works.... But with a very choppy audio..
