Little note...

On forums you can see a lot of users prefer to use PlayOnLinux, CrossOver,
Wind Doors, Cedega because of that. The first impressions for user with Wine
are not always positive, so we need to improve it...

Also, some long-existing bugs are still not fixed, for example the bug
"Mouse "escapes" window or is confined to an area in the full screen
program" is very annoying!

[Whining mode on]
Please can someone fix the bug with OffscreenrenderingMode to fbo and far
Cry 2?
