Anyone else having problems running TF2 on recent versions of wine? On wine versions newer than 1.3.22, I get extreme choppiness at the main menu, and it never fully draws (ie. the text appears, but the buttons don't). Sound is very choppy- it plays the first split second of the menu music, looping it multiple times before eventually moving on to the next split second. It's completely unusable. I didn't see anything like this in the wine appdb so I thought I'd ask here, although I may just report a bug anyway.

Code:

# emerge -vp wine

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

1.3.25 was latest gold.

I've heard there is a program for wine which automatically chooses the best wine version for your game. But I forgot how it's called.

Unfortunately, I've already tried every wine version from 1.3.23-1.3.27, and none of them work correctly :(. Even tried building them manually from the tarballs, still nothing.

Just for kicks, I went and installed Steam on my laptop running wine-1.3.27, and TF2 loaded and worked perfectly (well, as well as would be expected given the hardware). So now it looks like it is just me :(. Going to try again, this time with a fresh install of both my .wine dir and Steam.

Figured out what it was :( I had Xinerama enabled so that I can run multiple monitors, but apparently this doesn't work very well w/ new wines. Once I disabled my second screen, TF2 worked just fine.

[edit]It seems I should've enabled TwinView from the start instead of mess with Xinerama. Once I configured that correctly, performance shot way up and all the graphical niceties in KDE magically started working.

So now you can mark this question as [SOLVED].
