    Is this vulnerable to the security flaws fixed in Firefox version 16.0.1?

      I guess the big question is, does it make Guild Wars 2 run better. I'm yet to own the game but I think that will be the point people want to know about.

      It seems to run EverQuest 1 much better.

        I'm also interested about GW2 - but I'm also a Crossover customer, so I'm certain it'll work fine on release

          I just tried guild wars 2 with wine 1.5.15 and there is very little change in terms framerate improvements. I get around 30 fps on i7-2600K with 8 GB of RAM and a Nvidia 580 GTX. According to the bug reports on winehq, the problem seems to be the lacking support of multicore processors in wine.

            I never saw such a f**k up

            WINE 1.5.14 works extremely well and this garbage is constantly locking installers of basic thins like VC , PHYSX , YOU name it


            WORSE, it's completely RANDOM

                  You've obviously got a selective memory... I recall Wine 1.3.20 being one of the most specatular fails ever

                  The rule of thumb is always keep an older/non-development version of Wine kicking about - for doing real stuff
