Wine Patched for Games

PPA description

This archive contains builds of wine that have been patched to make certain games work better.

ATTENTION: PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT WINEHQ TEST RESULTS BASED ON THESE PATCHED VERSIONS OF WINE. DOING SO ONLY SERVES TO MISLEAD PEOPLE INTO BELIEVING THAT THE GAME ALREADY WORKS UNDER WINE, WHICH MAKES PROPER FIXES LESS LIKELY TO HAPPEN.

wine*guildwarsii* is mainly for use with Guild Wars 2, but may help some other games as well.

Starting with version 1.7.1, these builds include Stefan Dösinger's Direct3D command stream multithreading work, which is not yet part of official wine. It is an experimental change that can improve performance in some circumstances. I take snapshots of Stefan's git repository, apply patches from the most recent official wine release, and add any patches I have to fix specific game problems.
Users can activate CSMT by adding using this setting to their WINEPREFIX registry:
HKCU/Software/Wine/Direct3D/CSMT = "enabled"
Make sure StrictDrawOrdering is not enabled in the registry.

As of version 1.7.10, the only patch I add reverts an official change that has broken mouse camera control since the official wine 1.5.29 release:
http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33479

You will probably get better performance in Guild Wars 2 if you run with the WINEDEBUG=-all environment variable set, and include the -dx9single switch on the Gw2.exe command line.

Note: Users running 64-bit ubuntu may have to manually install the libxi6:i386 package for mouse camera control to work properly.
