    In this wine version steam still working, performance seems equal to 1.7.23 with same 343.13 drivers (punkbuster give more problems in this wine version in this test, maybe more later test other games with punkbuster)



    However in depencies for build, in this wine version ask for libpcap-dev

    So, will steam work in the future without supplying an additional parameter to disable DirectWrite (or something like that) ?

    Still needed but have some methods for evade this situation

    In my case entry without see letters (if you want know location dont be problem)



    Other method could if you have register dwrite entry saved on file (this step is very usefull for many things aka change location game if you want make rip and other things)

    Can I assume then that they simply don't give a damn about dx10 support, or is it something else holding them back? DX9 is starting to be obsolete, I wish they'd get that through their heads.
