Project CARS - Game of the Year Edition

This is the 10 version of "Project CARS - Game of the Year Edition" and the update to 11 version. Both versions, 10 and 11, runs perfectly in wine (also Project CARS version 1 runs perfectly).

Set Wine (in "winecfg" add "pCARS.exe" if you have Wine 32 bit or add "pCARS64.exe" if you have wine 64 bit) : "Windows 10".

For to run the game you need add "-dx9" to the .exe file because only runs in wine with directx 9 :

Wine 32 bit :

wine pCARS.exe -dx9

Wine 64 bit :

wine pCARS64.exe -dx9

DirectX11 runs with Wine 2.15, but have a lot of errors
by leillo1975 on Friday August 25th 2017, 12:55
Today I tested the game without -dx9 parameter, running it with DirecX11, and now the game runs (in previous versions it hangs at start), but in menus I can't see the texts. If I go to play a race, the screen goes to black and I only can see the HUD (Track Map, velocimeter, laps, gear, etc). Is possible that the devs take a look to this game?
