I just wanted to respond to something you said earlier...
Wine does not work very well with all games and by changing the
rendering mode for example, you can speed up games by more than 100%
in some cases, like CoD4, 15FPS with default rendering, but 65FPS with
And users that will break Wine by changing those setting (may not
happen a lot...) will presume it is caused by the changed settings and
will be able to reset.
BTW, i sent the patch for testing...
