HowTo / Notes

Wine Version

Make sure you use a wine version > 5.9. Prior versions suffer from a bug that causes the client to constantly crash when downloading the initial assets ( This has been fixed in wine versions > 5.9.

Workaround: Mouse focus issue

After you moved your mouse outside the client or switched to a different virtual desktop, MTGA will not regain focus if you get back to the application.

To fix this focus issue you can  add a registry key by running:

wine reg ADD 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver' /v UseTakeFocus /d 'N' /f
