Wine development for Mesa's gallium nine statetracker
The patched wine allows to run any D3D9 applications with nearly no CPU overhead, which provides a smother gaming experience and increased FPS. To achieve a low CPU overhead a new library, called d3d9-nine.dll, talks directly to the graphics driver.
You must "activate" that library to be used instead of the wine default (OpenGL backed) d3d9.dll.
Note: This library only work with Mesa and Gallium drivers.
More details in the Wiki.
How to build
$ ./configure --with-d3d9-nine $ make
How to use
Run the config tool to create a symlink from d3d9.dll to d3d9-nine.dll.so. On multiarch enable wine it creates to symlinks !
$ wine ninewinecfg
Run a D3D9 enabled application using wine.
If no longer required you can deactive it by using the ninewinecfg tool.
