    Nothing about d3d command stream / csmt in the changelogs from 1.7.5 to 1.7.9. What's the status?

      Last I heard both the command stream and the netflix patches were just being done piece-meal, one by one as they were reviewed and accepted

        I really have to wonder what the logic behind this is, as one of the biggest complaints when people discuss linux is always either "no games" or "netflix doesn't work"
        you think these things would be fairly high priority

          Yes, part of that high priority would be to review the patches carefully and merge them in a way that they can maintained in a clean way for a long time rather that get a bunch of a patches that works for now somehow.

            The netflix patch is something like a year and a half old. I think that should be enough time to "review" it.

                Are you?

                  Why would I waste money on a product that I don't need? You don't see me complaining in a random forum about how long it takes volunteers to review patches either. If I am in a hurry, I would either do it myself or pay someone else directly to do it for me.

                    CodeWeavers does most of the Wine developement so I think it's fair for their customer to expect them to work on things that many users want to use.

                        If you're unhappy with the product, you should probably stop paying them.

                          Sure but this isn't Codeweaver's support forum. Whats the point of complaining here?

                            No disagreement here.

                              It seems to me Wine has lost its steam the last few years.

                              Only minor changes, compatibility still sucks, there is STILL no 100% DX9 support etc...

                              I don't expect much from them anymore...

                              PS: Does anyone know if the major bug in Mass Effect 3, where the game crashes on the mission at the Cerberus base late in the game, is fixed? I would like to play it again, but this is gamebreaking, i could not pass that point...
