      This should definitely improve performance for Wine on Linux on Windows 🤘

        Maybe MS could also help porting Wine to Windows 😋

          A gallium driver might be more useful. With the assorted virgil projects, might be a more straightforward solution

              I wish they (or anyone capable) could develop one for Windows 95 so I can play some decent older titles.

              I think it is sad there is still a certain blind spot where the games are too recent for DOSBox and a software renderer and too old for VirtualBox / VMWare's Windows XP accelerated GPU passthrough driver.

              Kind of the DirectX 3 - 7 era

                And Wine is not able to run these games? Or do you specifically want to run these games on Windows?

                  There are still oddities with certain stuff from the Windows 95/98 era. The original FFVII for Win98 gave me issues in Wine the last time I tried, six months ago, it so I ended up finding a copy of the Steam version since it works just fine in Wine.

                    Haha never knew there was a Windows version of FFVII, I remember trying to use Bleem on Win 98 to run the PS disk. Until Sony shut them down anyways.
