Wine 1.1.43 Brings Many Direct3D Fixes, Optimizations


Published on 16 April 2010 03:07 PM EDT
Written by Michael Larabel in WINE

Recent releases of Wine have tackled Direct3D improvements among other enhancements in this popular free software project and Wine 1.1.43 has been released this afternoon to offer up more Direct3D love.

Wine 1.1.43 has "many Direct3D fixes and optimizations" according to the WineHQ.org release announcement. There's also a number of new Wine icons, improved support for alpha channel in bitmaps, more complete msvcr80/90 implementations, a number of 64-bit fixes, and various bug-fixes.

For those interested, below is a list of the Direct3D changes found in Wine 1.1.43 that have come about over the past two weeks.

wined3d: Move palette uploading code over to arbfp blit_shader.
wined3d: Move EXT_PALETTED_TEXTURE code over to ffp_blit.
wined3d: Disable paletted texture support. It was only offered on a few cards, so can be missed.
wined3d: Disable framebuffer to texture blitting.
wined3d: Move the arbfp p8 fixup to the format table and get rid of the d3dfmt_get_conv override.
wined3d: Due to code rewrites is_color_fixup_supported is not needed anymore in RealizePalette.
wined3d: Turn blit_shader color_fixup_supported into blit_supported.
wined3d: Remove redundant gl format/type code from d3dfmt_get_conv since it is already in the table.
wined3d: Only apply float R16G16F/R32G32F fixup when ARB_texture_rg isn't around and remove redundant code.
wined3d: Remove remaining redundant code from d3dfmt_get_conv.
wined3d: Let d3dfmt_get_conv return a wined3d_format_desc.
wined3d: Move srgb checks away from d3dfmt_get_conv.
wined3d: Start moving texture format fixups to the formats table.
wined3d: Move Q8W8V8U8 conversion to the format table.
wined3d: Move X8L8V8U8 surface conversion to the format table.

wined3d: Move D24X4S4 to the formats table.
wined3d: Move D15S1 over to the formats table.
wined3d: Move R32G32F convertion to the formats table.
wined3d: Move G16R16/R16G16F conversion to the formats table.
wined3d: Move A4L4 conversion to the formats table.
wined3d: Separate detection of D3D10+ and D3D9 Nvidia GPUs.
d3d9: Add an initial ColorFill regression test.
wined3d: Improve FBO support in ClearSurface.
wined3d: Add BLT_OP_COLOR_FILL to blit_supported and use it in BltOverride.
wined3d: Remove temporary conv_byte_count fixup from d3dfmt_get_conv.
wined3d: Remove call to d3dfmt_get_conv from read_from_framebuffer_texture.
wined3d: We don't need color keying for sysmem->drawable uploads.
wined3d: Remove paletteOverride from BltOverride offscreen->render_target blit.
wined3d: Separate AMD Radeon HD2300 from other HD2xxx/HD3xxx GPUs since it is D3D9 instead of D3D10.
wined3d: Separate AMD GPUs in D3D9 and D3D10 models, this allows for a more correct fall back when the GPU table isn't up to date.wined3d: Add a separate function for wined3d object initialization.
wined3d: Simply inline dumpResources().
wined3d: Make some functions static.
wined3d: Rename some GL vendors.

wined3d: Don't use GLSL if the supported version isn't at least 1.20.
wined3d: Capture the correct scissor rectangle.
ddraw: Fix and clarify texture filter state mappings.
quartz: Don't return a pointer to a stack variable in AMFilterData_ParseFilterData().
