omer666Bought Flatout 2 right away (Wine wrapper), and I don't know if their Wine version uses CSMT but the game runs flawlessly. I'm not even using Ubuntu, I'm on Arch.

But this game run without problem on vanilla wine

In other cases CSMT is more usefull but depend game (in ones better, in other worst)

Xpander@mrdeathjr

Do you play with such a small resolution in super small window as well?
ofc games perform better with this tiny resolution

still nice work with comparing stuff between wine versions..but i would like to see it in resolutions most people are playing.. aka 1080p

On my case use 4:3 Monitor CRT (Samsung 17) but use virtual desktop for see stay on linux (if you use fullscreen everybody can think you stay using windows) and for other details as steam beta version used, nvidia driver panel (on this apears gpu % use, mount of ram used and other things)

On my case i have show a minor idea about wine performance on resolutions closer to HD and much people need this information

On my hardware only try for resolutions closer to HD, on this resolutions fps performance depend more of cpu (and screencasting use 20% to 30% of cpu) however on higher resolution fps performance depend more of vga, my vga its not adequate for HD and upper resolutions)

And good side if on my case runs good with this hardware, other people with more powerfull hardware (CPU - GPU) have many chances on higher resolutions

1080p testings leave to other users with more powerfull hardware, for example user with your hardware: (AMD FX-8320 (i5) - Asus GTX 660 Ti 2GB DirectCU II - 16 GB DDR3 (1866Mhz)

Back to topic do you test wine 1.7.22, on my case i have testing the darkness 2 and appears fps improvemts (like other titles show up in this post)

BladeforceThere's no denying that Wine is an absolutely incredible achievement and with literally no documentation to go off either. Wine is absolutely fantastic for windows programs under GNU I run quite a few older games from the 1998 era flawlessly that will never be ported to GNU today.
I applaud the wine developers for their fantastic contribution to GNU.
I have ZERO respect for anyone that just says meh to such fantastic software and obviously has no understanding of the hard wor the wine developers put into this. Long live Wine!
as much as i agree with you on "wine is awesome", there is legitimate "meh" reason. if we keep buying new games to run under wine, then we're just negating the reasons why developers should do linux ports. why would they if sales are the same? and as good wine it is, it isn't as good as real port

This situation stay mainly on AAA titles from companies like as (EA - KONAMI - UBISOFT - BETHESDA - NAMCO and many others) or on old titles where dont have port

On my case buy games (mainly AAA titles) only if game runs on wine, for example this titles

Alzarath
sobkasSo what gcc version is a naughty one?
The latest one, 4.9.

Try compiling yourself, on my test i compile wine myself

Good news is only you have this process, system already have required dependencies and for this reason its dont need make again

Once have downloaded wine source you need this commands for uninstall before version (dont delete wine folder created from source)

sudo make uninstall on wine source folder created

and after this begins with lastest wine soource downloaded


-tar xjpf wine-1.7.19.tar.bz2

-cd wine-1.7.19

-./configure

-make depend

-make

-sudo make install

however this steps show in video guide

This videos on my channel have a minor idea about compiling wine, but this process is for linux mint 16 kde 32bits

AlzarathI've been unable to install Dawngate since 1.7.18 and this didn't fix it, sadly. I think it has something to do with the fact the installer is a .msi. Maybe I'll install it on a virtualbox and see if it runs afterwards. Before all this the game ran fantastically.

On my case installation works on wine 1.7.19
