Selected Test Results

What works

The game will launch at full screen resolution

The user is able to walk around skyrim, and almost all visual affects work correctly. But the framerate is incredibly low, only 1-5fps. The same hardware and settings on Windows 7 would give around 60fps.

What does not

Dialogue does not work. Some characters will look at the player and move their mouths, but there is no audio.

Cutscenes do not work correctly, which prevents the player from making it to the character creation screen. 

Very low framerate

Workarounds

Set xaudio2_7.dll to native(wine) in winecfg

What was not tested

Extensive gameplay of any kind. The game is not in a state where the user could stand to power through the issues.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

It's slowly progressing! Every wine release shows progress, keep it up.
