    Phoronix: Linux 5.10 To Bring SLDT/STR Emulation To Help Some Windows Games On Wine

    Last year Wine itself added emulation for some CPU instructions now blocked by UMIP, the User-Mode Instruction Prevention functionality found in the latest Intel and AMD processors. Now slated for Linux 5.10 is the emulation/spoofing of two of those instructions by the kernel as another attempt to help a small number of Windows programs relying on those instructions...

      That not going to happen any time soon. Particular think VMprotect goes out of it way to detect the wine registry key then internationally fail. Yes adding HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine to windows causes VMprotect to fail under windows. This is not wine missing some features so it does not work alone this is something that goes out of it way to detect wine and intentionally fail. Same way VMprotect goes out of it way to detect usage of VM and intentionally fail.

      This leads to next problem if wine does make VMProtect work and you play a game with it you most likely will be breaking that games terms of service and get banned.

      Resources are better spend on items where wine is missing features not something this far out to get wine.

      Yes items like VMprotect will require modify wine to hide the wine registry key and other areas to hide that person is running in wine. Same way those using VM have to hide they are in a VM so program works.

        Wait doesnt VMProtect work in Wine? If it didn't how do games that use it work in it?

        Ubisoft games like Assassins Creed Origins use it and they work in Wine / Proton

          Proton has a stack of extra blacklist features and other things to hide wine presence. Assassins Creed Origin in wine appdb entries only has a bronze rating because protection had to be hacked around. So modify wine or use a wine like proton that is modified to hide is required with some of these things VMProtect is one of these things.

          Proton report that something works is not a general wine.
