Latest Wine upgrade made atleast my Rift constantly crashing(30 min - 1 hour after playing), but there is a trick to reduce this crashing:
It seems to degrade performance a bit, but in some places it somehow actually increases it. I guess itâ€™s threading policy of Rift that causes it. The impact is barely noticeable by me, tell me if you have other opinions.
This setting also removes rendering artifacts, where all kind of funny white stripes and other ugly particles and planes are shown where they shouldnâ€™t be, to make it ~pixel perfect to what it should be.
