Introduces a new gaming mode called "Scenario Mode".
Everything - Co-op & Random, Ranked & Scenarios, the various Inventory/News/Clan interface, chat, etc.
Tested both with intel integrated card and Nvidia + primusrun (bumblebee).
What does not
There's a minor graphical artifacting that causes black textures to appear under the sea surface and on the villages in the islands. It happens with DirectX 11, and even though it's very noticeable it doesn't affect gameplay at all.
There's also another problem in the fact that sometimes the mouse gets "stuck" when in the main menu for the game. The cursor stops clicking and the only way to fix it is to Alt-F4 from the game and restart it. This only happens in the main menu so it doens't influence the game much.
There are two gamebreaking bugs however:
- The first is a completely random crash that thankfully happens much more rarely as of wine 3.11 compared to the previous versions, but it still happens. I've only had it happen once in the last ~100 battles, so it's not as severe as with previous versions where it crashed once every two or three games. The crash looks like this (even though it was reported by a Mac user, the error message's the same).
- The second, unfortunately, as of 3.11 happens much more often. Basically the cursor sometimes will stop being captured, making the game unplayable. The only method to fix the game is to close it and reopen it. This might mean at best that you'll lose half the match (and most likely be killed since disconnected players stay still in the map), and at worst (if you're playing aircraft carriers of T6+) it means that the whole team will lose because of you, due to the importance of that ship class.
What was not tested
Clan battles, though they presumably work just as fine as the other mode (there's no reason they shouldn't).
