Software emulation Use software emulation for d3d.
Pixel Shader Mode Allow use for pixel shader mode.
Vertex Shader Mode Sets mode for vertex shader mode.

Direct 3D settings

Option name  Description 
Multisampling Allows/disallows the use of multisampling.
Multisampling is not allowed by default although it works fine in a lot of cases.
DDraw Render Select what backend to use for DDraw. Valid ptions are:
  • gdi: use GDI to draw on the screen (slow but reliable)
  • opengl: use OpenGL (fast but not all programs work correctly)
See https://wiki.winehq.org/DirectDraw for more information.
LockMode RenderTargetLockMode selects which mode is used to read and write the framebuffer while it is locked.
  • auto: same as readdraw at the moment, will do benchmarks and use best method later
  • disabled: effectively disables render target locking
  • readdraw: uses glReadPixels for reading, glDrawPixels for drawing
  • readtex: reading with glReadPixels, drawing by drawing a textured quad
  • texdraw: readback using a texture, drawing with glDrawPixels
  • textex: readback using a texture, drawing with a textured quad

See https://wiki.winehq.org/DirectDraw for more information.
StrictDrawOrdering This option ensures any pending drawing operations are submitted to the driver, but at a significant performance cost.
Offscreen Mode OffscreenRenderingMode selects which mode is used to render offscreen images/textures.
  • backbuffer: the rendering is done in the backbuffer
  • pbuffer: uses PixelBuffers (Obsolete in wine >= 1.2)
  • fbo: uses Framebuffer object
See https://wiki.winehq.org/DirectDraw for more information.
Use GLSL When set to "disabled", this disables the use of GL Shading Language for vertex and pixel shaders, it will result in a fallback to ARB shaders. By default GLSL is enabled when available. (It is default as of 29/10/2007 or Wine 0.9.49)
See https://wiki.winehq.org/DirectDraw for more information.
Nonpower2Mode Texture Repacking can be quite CPU intensive, and warhammer 40k is the only game so far that needs nonpower2 texture repacking so it's turned off by default but can be turned on via setting key to repack.

  • enable: warp pointer when mouse exclusively acquired
  • disable: never warp the mouse pointer
  • force: always warp the pointer
Wheel Scroll Lines You can set number of lines scrolled by mouse. While set to -1 -- resets it to default wine value.
Joystick exes mapping This maps axes of joystick "joystick name". The "axes mapping" is comma-separated list of "axis type"s - one for each joystick axis (hat-pov uses 2 axes). "axis type" is one of: X, Y, Z, Rx, Ry, Rz, Slider1, Slider2, POV1, POV2, POV3, POV4.

To find the joystick name run:
'WINEDEBUG=+dinput wine game.exe 2>&1 | grep joydev_enum_device'

Example output: trace:dinput:joydev_enum_deviceW Enumerating the linux Joystick device: /dev/input/js0 (Logitech Logitech Dual Action)

Example registry entry: "Logitech Logitech Dual Action"="X,Y,Rz,Slider1,POV1". (two "Logitech"s not a typo)
