HowTo / Notes

Settings to avoid invisible models and flickering

If you are hit by bug #34052 (invisible character models), or flickering, set this key in the registry as a workaround (it happens on closed Nvidia driver, and to some on Mesa / Intel. It didn't happen to me with Mesa / radeonsi):

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D]
CheckFloatConstants="enabled"


Another similar issue is bug #46553 when some textures turn black indoors. For now, install  d3dx9_35 native override to work around that.

Avoiding the launcher.exe crash
by Ilya Trukhanov on Monday June 24th 2019, 15:00
It happens because of wine's internet explorer implementation (gecko). You can avoid the crash by installing any internet explorer version, for example with winetricks:

`winetricks -q ie6`

You need a 32-bit wineprefix for it to install, though.
