Before only needs limit pixel shader and vertex shader to 3 but now is needed put this libraries in winecfg as disabled : d3d10, d3d10core and d3d11 (is possible affect farcry 3 blood dragon too)

And minimum fps up around 5 to 10fps depending scene without forget sound improves (pulse audio support)

KeizgonUbuntu 15.10 has yet to receive any working beta branch version for WINE, despite it being out for a couple months. Hopefully this can be remedied soon. I may not use it very much these days, but it's nice to test with it and have the option.

Maybe can try ricotz ppa, this ppa stay more frequently updated than official ppa

Some 1 hour have wine 1.8rc3 ready for ubuntu 12.04, 14.04, 15.04, 15.10 and 16.04

Also can try this ppa too

Them have wine 1.8rc3 for ubuntu 14.04, 15.04, 15.10 and 16.04

Wine 1.8-rc1 Released

bubexelWhat about the directx11 implement? i can't wait more!
I would like to see a fully implemented Direct3D9:

Completly agreed

For wine shows actual DX9 state has been past around 5 to 6 years, for DX11 shows mature state maybe needed around 3 years

Without forget native games have more and more importance*, for this reason maybe better idea polish DX9** and before without forget other issues related with input and sound

* This is native games moment and new games*** must be have many possibilities for can be ported

** Because many of this games dont be ported

***Excluding EA and others without interest in linux
