Screen corruption after running a Direct X application (games).
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:37 EST
Description of problem:
When exiting a Direct X application the screen will be corrupted and a
greenish-blueish tint is also present. This has been the case since version
0.9.15 supporting gnome-mount. Once the screen is grabled, the only way to clean
the desktop is to quit and restar the session, even other programs will have
issues, like xine or totem will keep the area where the window of the program
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
wine-0.9.15 through 0.9.16
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install some Direct X game or application.
2. Run said application.
3. Quit the program. A blueish-greenish tint will be left on the screen.
See attached screenshots.
Previous versions of Wine did not have this problem.

This is how the screen looks like after running Diablo II with Wine 0.9.16 from Extras.
This actually is a Diablo 2 bug/feature you can also see on some Windows
Versions. As to wine bugs: DirectX not working is something that happens at the
moment because wine developers are changing code ther a lot lately. So if you
have the time report these bugs at winehq.org as these are wine bugs and not
packaging bugs on fedora (at least most likely).
Indeed, as matter of fact other user reported this in the AppDB Entry for Diablo
2 and apparently Direct3D is broken for some "legacy" Direct3D < 7 applications
(which Diablo happens to be one of them) and apparently they've solved the issue
in CVS of 0.9.18, so I'd expect this to be resolved by 0.9.18, once more, thanks
for the heads up!
