WJMazepasTri-Core? Wait, the i3-8350K is Quad-Core.

Did you disabled one core to increase overclock?

Yes Core i3 8350K is a quad core and yeah disabled core give better clock and lower temps

But i always want a tri core with higher single thread

legluondunetBioshock 1 et 2 work if you launch them with -dx9 option. But without this option, they crash (directx10 mode)

Hey how did you get Test Drive Unlimited 2 to behave? I've been getting this issue for a while now. Or have they fixed it in this very version? (I haven't tested in 3.10 yet) Do you do anything special with it?

Btw I think you should put the graphics settings in Contrast on max, they work and look great.

Hi

In my case works as see in video

However i use retail + scene nodvd + descompressed game for mods and tdu universal launcher 3.6

legluondunetWith the last Wine version (3.9 and 3.10), you can now launch Bioshock 1 remastered and Darksiders Warmastered Edition.

But Bioshock 1
Bioshock 2
Bioshock 2 remastered
LA NOIRE

Still crash at start.

I try bioshock 1 and still running in my case

More later try bioshock 2 (i dont have la noire for now)

PPSSPP emulator now uses Vulkan by default, OpenGL now multithreaded

However vulkan have issues

Various issues stay in 1.7.0 development for solved case resize windowed using vulkan

But in middle of this, them add opengl multithreading acccording devs this shows performance improvement

OpenGL backend now properly multithreaded, giving a
good speed boost.


In my case stay running good

Unreal Gold still running

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eetU6YV7V4

Anachronox still running good too

vkd3d requires libvkd3d, this can be compiled using this:

Keyrock/patiently waits for mrdeathjr's post

In this wine version have mp3 decoder: potentially could affect some titles with mp3 music case oblivion, fallout 3 and others?

What is the issue with Oblivion/Fallout 3? The last time I played them, they ran almost perfect, only thing I had to do is set "winegstreamer" to disabled in wineconfig as it was crashing the game.

I test oblivion and in before test music folder will be renamed but now runs ok without rename folder and dont need disable winegstreamer in test

In my case build wine for this is needed: libmpg123-dev

Last test with wine 2.8 more or less 1 year before

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3N8BdFYZJVs

And now with wine 3.8

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOx6SmstfIc

At simple seek performance remains similar but fps appears more stable

However shadow problems still remain, especially notorious in mike apartament or mall center
