Default 169.04 and Counter Strike under Wine

Hi

After changing the Driver from 100.14.23 to 169.04 Counter Strike starts normal, change to silly Colors after a few seconds and died then. Installation was normal, direct rendering is working.

Is this a Bug or a different Problem?

I'm using a Geforce 7600 GS under open Suse 10.3, Kernel 2.6.23 and Wine 0.9.49, the Driver is for x86 System.

Thanks for reading and sorry about my English!

I can confirm this. CS loads and than crashes, creating Steam__142603__2007_11_21T14_17_14C5407.mdmp in its folder. Definitely a regression.

Wine + Steam games don't work very well for me either. Not being able to use "Use GLSL - enabled" is part of the problem, I think. It's good to know that it's a driver issue, not a 8800gt issue. Hopefully it'll be fixed in the non-beta release...

Good news for this bug folks,
I just built wine 0.9.50 today and running TF2 in directx8.0 is perfect!
also the new wine allows it to run under dx9 software/hardware however this almost works except its quite slow and all the game overlays are ugly black squares..
I look forward to a stable 169 release that runs DX9 source engine flawlessly!

What are your settings for TF2 in dx 8 mode? Whenever I try to run it the game crashes as soon as I join a server.

Also, a few posts above I commented how GLSL wasn't working - this wasn't the driver's fault, as mesa somehow broke itself after I installed the driver.

Yeah, wine 0.9.50 implemtents a workaround for this bug in the nvidia driver.
This is explicitely stated in the changes note.

But nvidia should fix this bug. It should not be neccessary that the application works around driver bugs ..

Steam and wine 0.9.50 are virtually unusable with this driver. TF2 is completely broken, and Steam crashes all the time, creating dozens of ".mdump" files over the course of a day of trying to get it to cooperate.

I'm downgrading back to 0.9.46 to see if I have better luck. I can live with music skipping in the title screen, but when every single attempt to start the game results in a crash or error message...you get the idea.

I think a STABLE 169 release could potentially really help this issue.

It works pretty good for me in Gentoo.. I had serious issues with TF2 etc at first as well... however now it's pretty much perfect except for some issues with steam friends.

For the record I use
2.6.22-gentoo-r8 running x86_64 on a core duo with a creative x-fi on beta drivers..
I've used it on .944, .948, 949 (with 7900GT) and 950 all with success (with sound over OSS, be sure to use it for stability)

and some x11 stats..
x11-base/xorg-server-1.3.0.0
x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-169.04

Heres a script I use if steam stops working well:
rm /home/<user>/.wine/drive_c/Steam/ClientRegistry.blob
killall wine
killall wine-preloader
killall wineserver
chattr -R +S /home/<user>/.wine/drive_c/Steam/
wineboot

additionally an issue that caused TF2 to crash when joining game was the way I compiled wine.. I now use the USE flags:

app-emulation/wine alsa cups dbus esd hal jack jpeg lcms ldap nas ncurses opengl oss scanner xml X nvidia jack-audio-connection-kit sdl

and it runs quite well when i built wine .950 with the command:
emerge =wine-0.9.50

Lastly, there may be a small issue where wine requires udev-115 or newer to work properly with latest source engine, be advised this also causes great issues with the X-Fi beta drivers but thats another story...

I'm running tf2 in dx8 (forced with mat_dxlevel 80 in registry), high texture quality, high shaders, high models, med shadows ,trilinear, no HDR or bloom
on my 8800GT and have been for the past few days (it still does run pretty slow, but he 8800 seems powerful enough to overcome the buggy slowness of these drivers as long as you stick to dx8)
