Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Name of the software: wine-nine-standalone
Project/product Homepage: https://github.com/iXit/wine-nine-standalone
Why we should include this into the repository, i.e. what does it do that the alternatives do not?
Sarnex wine-d3d9-patches don't seem to be updated regularly anymore and wine on solus is now a few version behind. This could eventually be an alternative to these patches.
Is it open source? Yes, LGPL-2.1-or-later
Sources: https://github.com/iXit/wine-nine-standalone/releases

Note: I failed to build this (build fails to find some wine header files because they are in sub-directories?), but it's probably my own stupidity...

Yea it's a sad frustrating that the d3d9 patches haven't been updated yet, but I appreciate the fact we've been able to use them for as long as we have. I think we need to look into the best way of supporting both wine proper and any active d3d9 / gallium nine-based wine forks, or alternatively do away with the concept of officially supported D3D9-based WINEs. Most of that aspect of the ecosystem is moving to DXVK+Proton, which I intend on officially supporting on the future, and there has been progress of having D39 support in DXVK to just translate those calls to Vulkan.

If someone can suggest to me a way of integrating this alongside the existing wine, without breaking anything, I will consider accepting this for inclusion.

The wine-d3d9-patches are officially dead

I have a local build of the wine-nine-standalone. It was indeed my own stupidity (initially I tried to build it against the version of wine that is in the repository instead of building it against an unpatched version of wine).
