hardware emulation in the newer wine versions

Post by melancholy » Sun Nov 27, 2011 6:46 pm

ok, I can't figure it out...

I'd like to play some games with sound, but to make that work, I need to set the acceleration to emulation.
Since that option is gone in the newer wine versions, I need some help to set this up in the wine registry.

could someone help me please?

The easiest way is with winetricks:

Code: Select all

sh winetricks dsoundhw=Emulation
If you want to set it yourself in regedit, the key is

Code: Select all

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\DirectSound]
"HardwareAcceleration"="Emulation"

This is no more. It's been removed when DSound got reimplemented on top of mmdevapi.

Now Wine only supports "Emulation" hw acceleration, so this option was removed.

Strange. If sound emulation is still working, why am I not getting sound in a game which is running perfectly fine graphic wise? I getting no lag or anything, but there is no sound.
