Additional Comments

Multiple released tried, including wine in Ubuntu's ppas, as well as the ubuntu packages made available by winehq 'wine1.6' and 'wine1.7'. Reverting the patch listed in bug report 33479 doesn't seem to fix the 180 degree bug issue in the ppa version of wine1.6.

  • Specify whether you installed into a 32-bit or a 64-bit Wineprefix.
  • Add detailed comments about what is not working for you.
  • Please indicate if your using Wine Staging and/or any additional patches applied - to the version of Wine you are using.
  • Please, don't submit test results like "Everything is working" or "Everything isn't working".

These guidelines ensure your submitted test results are actually relevant to other users of Wine and WineHQ.


1 The console version of the lshw utility is your friend. This command will dump your System hardware specification in a clean format. Post command and output in the Extra Comments section:

sudo lshw -short | egrep -v '(volume|disk|bus)'

2 glxinfo can be used to display your OpenGL and graphics driver versions. Post the command and output in the Extra Comments section:

Known Issues

DirectX 11 Support


As of Wine version 1.7.53(+) there are tests enabled to see if your graphics hardware supports DirectX 11... Unfortunately a significant amount of the DirectX 11 translation layer has still to be implemented in Wine.

On supported hardware, Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director's Cut will start in DirectX 11 mode. The menus will display correctly (some dialogue boxes may appear to be undersized??) In game there will be a lot of graphical corruption and missing textures.


The workaround is to disable support for the DirectX Graphics Infrastructure (DXGI) in Wine:


wine reg.exe ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\DXHRDC.exe\DllOverrides" "/v" "dxgi" "/t" "REG_SZ" "/d" ""


Graphical Corruption


Wine, by default, does DirectX draw calls in a different order from Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director's Cut running under Windows.

The workaround is to enable strict draw ordering (via a registry key):


wine reg.exe ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\DXHRDC.exe\Direct3D" "/v" "StrictDrawOrdering" "/t" "REG_SZ" "/d" "enabled"

In addition the AlwaysOffscreen registry setting is enabled by default (since wine version: 1.5.10). It is important that this registry setting should be left enabled.


Mouse Escapes Window (Wine Virtual Desktop mode)


The symptom of this problem is that when Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director's Cut is run in a Wine Virtual Desktop the mouse can escape from the fullscreen game window.

The workaround is to enable the grab mouse in full screen mode setting (via a registry key):


wine reg.exe ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver" "/v" "GrabFullscreen" "/t" "REG_SZ" "/d" "Y" /f

This is a workaround introduced by Wine Bug 6971 - Mouse "escapes" window or is confined to an area in the full screen program.


Incorrect DPI Scaling of Elements

The symptom of this issue is that all UI popup elements, the in-game HUD, etc. are scaled to an inappropriately small size. This appears to manifest on a single-head X session with multiple monitors, combined into a single X display.

The only known workaround is to use a Wine Virtual Desktop. The issue is to be investigated further as no Wine bugs appear to be filed against it.


In-game stuttering and generally low FPS

Enabling StrictDrawOrdering leads to a high price in game performance. It is recommended, certainly for Nvidia GPU users (using the proprietary driver), to use the Wine Staging CMST patchset available in the Wine Staging package. AMD GPU users who are using Gallium Nine may not require or benefit from this patchset.

This unstable feature can be enabled in the Staging tab of the winecfg utility. Regressions (crashes, graphical artifacts, etc.) should be reported at the WineHQ Bugzilla - stating that the Wine Staging patchset was used.
