PlayOnLinux 3.1

Wednesday 10 September 2008 at 17:36


Here is a short news to announce PlayOnLinux 3.1's release.

The changes are:

- A bug with proxy server's support fixed
- The page is displayed after each update of PlayOnLinux, to inform the user of the changes
- Display of a mark (a number of stars) for each application depending on their popularity. This mark is automatically calculated from the collected statistics. Here is what it looks like:

- playonlinux-daemon, the new feature added in the beta. For those who didn't keep up with the development, see the beta's release news
- A fixed bug in wine version (If you had all Wine's versions, the window won't open)
- The #playonlinux-en channel added
- The Program Files directory bug is fixed (this directory is named differently in some languages, what was resulting in directory errors)

Advanced Wine Configuration new version

Sunday 7 September 2008 at 22:45

Good evening everybody,

A new version of the Advanced Wine Configuration plugin is now available, it brings 2 new options: Multisampling and Mouse Warp Override:

-The Multisampling option allows, especially in conjunction with the fbo one, to get a better rendering in some games like Half-Life 2 or the Prince of Persia series, mainly with Nvidia cards. This option enables some improvements independently of the video card too.

-The Mouse Warp Override option prevents the mouse's pointer to escape from your application's window even with Window Managers like Fluxbox (For information, Gnome is a Desktop Environment of which Metacity is the Window Manager).
You can even force this state, what can be useful with games of which videos allow the mouse's pointer to be moved.

You will find the plugin in the download section or directly HERE.

Have a good game all
