Steem (debug) and Wine - Toolbar dissappears

Postby wietze » Sat Mar 21, 2015 10:12 am

Ola hombres,

for quite some while I have been using Steem under wine under OSX. This works, and is wonderful. For best compatibility, I used to check the `never use DirectDraw'. Because, without directDraw, the upper `toolbar' int he Steem window draws correctly. And with DirectDraw enabled, it does not.

Steem with dd enabled:

Steem without dd enabled:

However, when running steem without directdraw on a high resolution will eventually rape the cpu, probably due all the pixelpushing that needs to be done. This forces me to enable directdraw and henceforth lose the correctly drawn toolbar.

I am wondering if anyone has solved this issue, and got Steem Debug to run under wine using DirectDraw and without losing the toolbar.

Hi- did you ever manage to solve this problem. If you did, I would be MOST grateful if you could let me know how you'd it as I have the same issue!

Many thanks,
