HowTo / Notes

Fixing the "Fatal error in gc, GetThreadContext failed" crash when downloading game files

It is possible to overcome the "Fatal error in gc, GetThreadContext failed" crash when downloading game files by using a patched version of wine. (see the discussion here https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45546)

For those using lutris there is a build with the patch enabled available called: tkg-mtga-x.xx
