    I doubt that it's the GPU that's the problem. They've got something single-threaded going on in eON and I can't see that they're going to "fix" this realistically with it so long as it's single-threaded. It's amazing that it's getting the framerates that it does. If it wasn't crippled with the bad design piece there, this would probably fly, getting half again more performance over WINE.

    Heh...the Big Two have been trying to drive a stake into the heart of that particular vampire for YEARS now. You won't have this dev arguing. There's little to be gained from using the old stuff except with simple rendering tasks.

    Winelib doesn't require any additional stuff to be installed.
    They're not. People misunderstand what was done with the others. In all three instances, you have to re-compile things to make it work.

    Well, if wine could come up with a simple wrapper version as well, that would be great. However, it won't happen probably.
    You mean like Winelib?

    A game dev bug

    According to the dev, mesa fails when the game is asking for a core context instead of querying all 3.2 extensions one by one. It's a mesa bug. That's good news, because it can be worked around (by going the querying route) in the game, and also it can be fixed in mesa. We only have to wait a bit, probably both will happen.
