Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic)
Wine amd64 i386 wine4.15-bionic
It uses directx9 d3dx9_42.dll
card GeForce GT 710
test case: black screen on Skyrim
I can run Skyrim, I can hear the menu sounds (hit Enter and hit ESC),
so I open the console with ~ and type "load lastSavegameName",
the game loads properly, I can unsheath the weapon and swing it,
musics play, all sounds are ok, I can even spawn a wolf but...
The whole time all the screen is COMPLETELY black! and I can see absolutely nothing on the game window!
Another test: Path of Exile was simply crashing.
guesses and more tests
- It seems related to graphics drivers vs something?, I read it could be related to shaders too.
- I tested nvidia drivers 430 and 390 versions, both failed.
- Noveau driver works (I can see the game logo and menus) but is uber slow and wont let me select other screen resolution than 640x480, unusable even for tests unfortunately.
- I tried to use winetricks to disable GLSL but didnt work either (the idea was to disable shaders)
It ran perfecly on ubuntu 16.04,
wine4.0.0stable-xenial (could may be older ones too like wine2.0.3stable-xenial) (some of these even run on ubuntu 18.04 but the problem persists),
driver nvidia-384_384.130-0ubuntu0.16.04.1_amd64.deb (I got the filename from apt cache)
I lost access to my old ubuntu 16.04 (I lost the boot partition), still trying to recreate it, but I want to stay on 18.04.
I will add more info as soon I figure it out or ppl give me tips.
PS.: Is this the correct/best site to ask about a windows app run thru wine on linux, specific issues?
