Wine-Staging 2.10 released with more anti cheat fixes

By - | Views: 26,587
Wine-Staging 2.10 is now available and it brings in some interesting changes to further improve Wine for everyone. A big part of this release is Mac-focused, but there's a few other nice bits for us.

Reminder: Wine Staging is the testing area for features not quite ready to be included in the Wine development releases.

The main features of this release as noted by the Wine-Staging team are:
  • Preloader for macOS.
  • ntoskrnl and winedevice improvements.
  • Various smaller bug fixes and improvements.


On top of that, they also mentioned some fixes related to mouse issues in Unity games, improved Windows kernel drivers and also more work towards anti cheat issues.

It also pulls in all changes from Wine 2.10. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Fantastic to see it working so well, although it does seem to stutter a lot, so hopefully performance can be worked out. Still, that's quite incredible progress for Wine.

Not everyone agrees to that hard-rule. It's not a one size fits all rule.

There's also the people who purchased it on the previous promises of a Linux port and got stung by it, quite a lot of people I imagine.

If the one is in Linux gaming more than one year , should've learned by now to not believing promises or kickstarters when it comes to Linux.

Anyway , i looked up to his profile and it seems he is dual booting so my mistake.

But i must say that : I'm not agreeing with that kind of happiness at all. If Wine gaming really becomes a thing , we would never see in house ports or official supports.
Developers will be like : " They're doing fine with Wine , why should i bother with official Linux support?"

And sadly ; Wine usage is becoming a piracy tool. Check out Wine forums. There are so much people which asking running ETS2 on Wine , Total War Attila in Wine , CiV VI in Wine. When you say; that game is available on Linux they're not responding at all.

Wine = Sacred place for pirated Windows games on Linux , without virus or malware threat.

Also it seems John Carmack was true about his Linux gaming thoughts.

Wine has been around for a long time and so far it hasn't really stopped any games coming to Linux.

Wine is a fantastic tool.

There will always be games Linux doesn't get and people should not be forced into giving them up or never getting a chance to play them. I take a much more pragmatic approach than a lot of people on this issue.

Starcraft II for example, one of my favourite RTS games ever made. It will never come to Linux, but that doesn't mean I have to give it up.

I would rather people used Wine on Linux, than Windows.

You have to teach me to run some of Blizzard's stuff on wine.
Maybe a tutorial some day :)

Hah not likely, I just tried Lutris, then Wine by itself, then Wine Staging...couldn't get the darn Blizzard app working at all. No Starcraft II for me today!
