The Wine team have released VKD3D version 1.1 of their Direct3D 12 to Vulkan translation library
5 October 2018 at 9:25 pm UTC

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is on the list. One day I'll try out the
dx12 renderer. Maybe I can get better performance than native.

If I get to ride my bike down the street and shoot some serious
monsters, AT THE SAME TIME, that would be seriously awesome!

QuoteGood news Linux fans!
Linux distributed server files will be available February 1st for all your dedicated server hosting needs.
Are you talking to linux fans? Pathetic. I suggest you ask one of you windows fanboys to run dedicated linux server so other windows games can play your game. No one around here is interested.

Wine continues to mature with Wine 3.0 RC6
13 January 2018 at 12:30 am UTC Likes: 2

Before the official 3.0 release the wine developers should try and fix some of the outstanding audio bugs. That was the biggest issue that I had with wine last year. I compiled a list.


  • Bug 30639 - Audio stuttering and performance drops in Star Wolves 3
  • Bug 41271 - Fallout 4 - Audio issues (no sounds, hangs when playing intro video)
    Status: STAGED
  • Bug 44257 - Divinity: Original Sin 2: Audio via pulseaudio has popping/crackling in music
  • Bug 44107 - Prey (2017) - Audio sometimes crackling
    Status: NEW
  • Bug 34097 - Mega Man Unlimited: Game works, sound is choppy and slow
  • Bug 42858 - Stuttering sound setting the OS to Windows 7 and higher on FreeBSD
  • Bug 42856 - osu! - high sound latency with winepulse compared to winealsa
  • Bug 34606 - No in-game and menu sounds in Oddworld Munch's Oddysee CD version (does not affect the remastered version)
  • Bug 41047 - Star Wars Racer videos have no sound
  • Bug 38668 - Wolfestein: The Old Blood crashes inside native XAudio2_7.dll
    Status: REOPENED
  • Bug 43846 - Prototype 1 and 2 no audio

Intel launches their new CPUs with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics along with two new 'NUC' mini-pc models

EagleDeltaI understand your feelings, but if that's how you feel, then you shouldn't use computers.
Such a long post to justify something that actually could be avoided if testing before releasing were done properly, then Intel jumping into new models and products while old stuff is still broken isnt good. Im pretty sure intel will keep pushing new stuff in order that people forget about this meltdown problem because they cant fix it, those models are just too deep broken.
"I understand your feelings" no you dont, and stop telling people to stop using something just because they expect quality and responsibility from manufacturers.

Tom Lendacky of AMD agrees with you.

I see posters here saying things like: It's an unforeseen bug or it could happen to anyone.
The bottom line is Intel played fast and loose with security just to squeeze some more
performance out of their chip design. Take a look at this quote from Tom.
QuoteThe AMD micro-architecture
does not allow memory references, including speculative references, that
access higher privileged data when running in a lesser privileged mode
when that access would result in a page fault.
That implies Intel is allowing unprivileged processes to reference speculative data from
higher ring processes. That is by definition a very bad design choice.

AMD announces Zen 2 design is 'complete', Zen+ now 'sampling' and more

They should have waited a day. How fitting it would have been on
the day when these NDA's that Intel forced on everyone are to
expire, AMD announces a new CPU architecture that is immune.

Wine 3.0 RC4 is now available, more glorious bug fixes
30 December 2017 at 11:13 pm UTC

I've come across an unusually high number of bug reports concerning audio.
Some games are without sound. Some have choppy or crackling sound. I have
personally tested a couple of dx11 games that would have been given a platinum
rating if not for the audio difficulties. This wine subsystem needs fixing
before the 3.0 release.

The first release candidate for Wine 3.0 is now available for testing, fixes for The Witcher 3 included

The staging patches are a no show.

What patches are needed for witcher 3?

roothorickAs always, I'm gonna wait for -staging. Vulkan is too important for my work.
Yeah, what up with that? the last staging release was 2.21.
