HowTo / Notes

Run whit last wine versions and GPUs

In my case must be added at the beginning of the run line this variable:

In my launcher to playonlinux Steam, edit whit this changes and run perfectly:

Add this: export __GL_ExtensionStringVersion=17700

[ "$PLAYONLINUX" = "" ] && exit 0
source "$PLAYONLINUX/lib/sources"
export WINEPREFIX="/home/david/.PlayOnLinux//wineprefix/Steam"
export WINEDEBUG="-all"
export __GL_ExtensionStringVersion=17700
cd "/home/david/.PlayOnLinux//wineprefix/Steam/drive_c/./Program Files/Steam"
POL_Wine Steam.exe "$@"

There's a demo version with which i can play the problem:

The game is based on the Quake 2 engine, the game starting with 'wine kingpin.exe __GL_ExtensionStringVersion = 17700' makes it possible to start the demo.

Possibly another dupe of bug # 25362.

Tested with Nvidia binary 337.19 drivers "

Is there anyone out there that has gotten this to work.
There seems to have been a regression between wine-1.0 and wine-4.0.
I get an unhandled exception error before loading.
