Thanks for the info and for refreshing your patches!

Are there any games that currently need native dxdiagn that we might fix?
I had a look, and only found two that seemed to need native dxdiagn:

World In Conflict is affected by this, right?
Is this problem addressed by your current patch?

I see Final Fantasy XI wants native dxdiagn; there's even a web
site *just for that one game on Wine* that mentions this!
