Thread: WineX 3.0

    WineX 3.0

    I know this is little late. It just came out about 3 days ago, but anyways. This version seems to work a lot better than the 2.2, along with eliminating that memory leak that it had before. Everything seems to run much much smoother than before. I just need to try out some more games. :P

    Do note that this is a pre-release and to operate it, you need to use the temporary (until stable is released) winex3 binary.

    Seems stable to me. ;D

    So far I've heard some games being a bit buggy, but I have yet to see that yet. Even though it's a pre-release, at least it allows to install beside winex 2.2 without overwriting it allowing you to use either.

    Re:WineX 3.0

    Has anyone been able to get this via CVS. I've been trying and it tells me that module winex-3-0-pre-1 doesn't exist, yet the website says to get that module if you want to try the pre release.
    Cheers

    You can get the cvs for it. Its just that it might be broken, and there's no support for it. You have to pay to get the binaries of it, and then you can vote for games etc. I sorted it out in the end though.

    Re:WineX 3.0

    If you're not that familiar with CVS, to get the 3.0 prerelease put -r winex-3-0-pre-1 at the end of the second command. It took me ages to work that out, and I'm not even certain thats right.
