    Music to my ears, the next time this game goes on sale, I'll know what to play next. Finished it on Windows XP many years ago, would be nice to go through it again.

      Wonder if the mfplat support covers QuickTime videos by now. It has come a long way from just hanging the game to simply skipping the video.
      Testing will begin tomorrow then

        They still have some ways to go. It was a hard and long situation no one wanted to work on prior to Valve joining in.

        Tested two games recently that still failed to have videos with the then latest regular flavor of Wine. Most likely no different a few versions later. Might be by half way through next year or the end of next year.

          Its not main feature, but now is second most important.. New ARM Mac devices are running x86 code, without any hacks, Windows 10 RT now start even 64bit apps.. now Linux/Android+Wine are worst for x86 code on ARM and vice versa.. it was once advantage..

            That's the CPU though, not the OS really. You're not running Windows 10 applications on Mac without using Wine or vice versa. The whole point of what you said is for eg Windows 10 x86 or x64 on ARM with Windows 10 which Wine doesn't really need to do anyway.

            If Wine was doing it then they can fix their focus unless they want to keep at it. I don't find that to be any big deal at all.
