    Yeah , i searched the bugs and find out that...it was libxcb...i simply downloaded it together with xcb-proto (was outdated for libxcb 1.9) and made some packages with src2pkg


    There is still some problems if we try to install with winetricks comctl32 as reported by several....but we just need to try again and eventually will install as it was reported by me in the BUG page...

    Nothing of this was happening with 1.5.14....or maybe i was just lucky with things installed in 1.5.14...

    There's a good chance that's because you have an old (32-bit) libxcb that doesn't include http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xcb/libx...c5d59fb0823cef, although that issue certainly isn't new in 1.5.14.

    I have

    1.4.1
    1.5.14
    1.5.15 (erased now)

    As for 1.3.20, LOL , i forgot that one...i was so pissed with it that i reinstalled WinXP


    ...but that is all part of a dark period in my life

    I just tried guild wars 2 with wine 1.5.15 and there is very little change in terms framerate improvements. I get around 30 fps on i7-2600K with 8 GB of RAM and a Nvidia 580 GTX. According to the bug reports on winehq, the problem seems to be the lacking support of multicore processors in wine.
