Deus Ex Human Revolution

Improvement is very good without csmt: cpu usage is lower (core 0 dont stay at 99% in vanilla) and dont show screen flickering like vanilla only

And with csmt give huge fps boost

So I tested wine-staging-pba 3.3 on KDE Neon 16.04 by downloading the package from Lutris server and then copied it over to ~/.PlayOnLinux/wine since that's what I use to manage my games.

I tried it as-is with NeverWinter Online, and in the main city (Protector's Enclave) I got a +15 FPS increase. However, the increase in frame rate was negated by awful stuttering and random graphical glitches.

I'm not really familiar with all the terminology surrounding wine so I left all settings to "default". I'm downloading WoW now so should be able to test that shortly as well. Presumably, CSMT is already enabled in 3.3 so no need to worry about that?
