Specs: i7 3770k@4.5GHz, 32GB DDR3 RAM, MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X+, nvidia drivers 390.25

Did some tests in Lions Arch. the performance improved definitely. It went from ~25fps up to ~40fps on high settings. In other areas I have up to 120fps

Resolution: 1920*1080

Impressive, which build did you use?

@Xpander: Does Battlerite render correctly with those patches? Game looks interesting might give it a try :-)

I used the wine version you posted here.

Quoting: Avehicle7887...
If you wish to give this build a try I uploaded it to my google drive: Download Link

Or do you mean if I use Gw2 32bit or 64bit? It is 64bit if that answers your question :)

Or do you actually mean ingame. On my main, which is a necro, I am still on power reaper because that is fun for regular pve and dungeons imo. Though I have 15 chars of which are 11 fully equipped with ascended gear and some legendaries. On those I have most meta builds like chrono, condi beastmaster, heal druid, dragonhunter,... you name it ^^

Btw do you know if there is some kind of GoL or Linux guild? :)

didn't see any graphical issues, but i only tested one map. Its quite a fun game and runs good also. It ran fairly fine without the patches also, just bigger action with more spelleffects dropped the framerate, but with pba patches it drops way less



about guild wars 2, i didnt try Lions Arch, just some random map and there was some live event next to me which with regular wine dropped fps down to 25 fps (about 10-15 people size event)

and yeah i used 64bit executable as well and my resolution for all these games is 2560x1440, even though that doesnt matter much i guess for those games as i didnt see GPU usage go above 60%

I tested it in Lions Arch because you usually have the lowest FPS there :)

I meant, where did you get the Wine build from, I read lutris is providing new builds regularly.

I usually simply use PoL to manage my wine versions/bottles but for this test I downloaded the build you provided :)

or if you dont have dependecies installed

makepkg -ci

I still have some weird stuttering at times when turning with mouse. Doesnt happen when turning with A and D keys. Maybe WoW/wine do not like 1000hz polling or high dpi.

Weird mouse movement video: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1meBtGXaQFwxG6V04Ex3-6KqLlQ8TLxnm/view tried to move mouse with the same speed all the time.

Slightly off-topic here.. why should I use wine-2.x staging when Wine 3.3 is out? I am using PlayOnLinux and install 3.3 from there. I just play NeverWinter Online and I'm getting 60 FPS with all settings maxed out on NVidia 1080.
