Hello, and let me first thank you for this great work! I recently transitioned to Linux (Manjaro) and I would have never thought that the Battlenet games work so smooth right out of the box.
I tried to make a game work which I loved to play in the past. It is no more working on Win10 so I had to make a Win7 VM in order to be able to play it. So I wanted to give Wine a try.
This is the game: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=14070
I tried to create everything like it is described in the article and I could make the game running but the framerate in the main menu is like 0.5 fps and in the game it is like 1 frame per 1 minute…
What I tried so far: I installed vcrun2005 and the physix driver from the cd like recommended in the article in a new wineprefix. The directx9 package in winetricks is deprecated so I used the “d3dx9” one. This led to the behavior I discribed.
I then tried newly created prefixes with different d3dx9_xx versions without success. The best performance I got by using d9vk. The menu was in a very high fps but unfortunately the game could not start and hang.
So before I try further endlessly I wanted to ask you to guide me in the right direction. Or maybe you can tell me from my description already that it is hopeless. I really want to try around a bit in order to understand everything on my own and maybe be able in the future to help others.
Thank you in advance
