Hello Danii,

I'm using MoI on a very old laptop with opensuse leap 42.1 and wine (v1.8.2). Did you try some configurations with winecfg. I'm using "Allow windowmanager to decode the window and control the window. Also use a virtual desktop in the graphic configuration. Under Applications I use Windows 7 for the MoI.exe. Under libraries gdiplus (??). Maybe it helps.

Have a nice day
Karsten

Thank you Karsten and Michael.
I tried winecfg but not much changed. I'll look into it further.

Hi daniii, are you using 32-bit Wine or 64-bit Wine ?

Hi. I tried both 64 and 32 bottles trough PlayOnLinux. I also installed on a laptop with the nVidia 1050 and works way better (even though it shouldn't).
I also removed my 64 installation of wine and installed the 32 bit version 1.8 and got the same problems.

Hi daniii, sorry I don't really have any ideas on why that's not working well.

Things will be set up a little different with MoI v4, it will be 64-bit and when running on Wine it will use OpenGL for the 3D display instead of Direct3D. That should be a much thinner pass through for the API and maybe will avoid whatever combination that is problematic.

That is great news. Can't wait to try it.

Hi Daniii,

about year ago I tried to use MoI with Linux. Unfortunately I could not make it work with an original Nvidia driver. MoI works perfectly with Nouveau driver, but this driver doesn't support CUDA, so you can't use GPU renders with it.
In my opinion the quality of Nvidia drivers for Linux and Mac OS is very low.

Hello Max,
Thank you for the tip, but when i try to switch to Nouveau i get a black screen on boot. I need to boot with nomodeset, and install the proprietary driver. I also do a lot of rendering in Blender using the GPU. For now I will use V3 for creating small parts of the projects and bring them all together in something else like VariCAD and Blender. Maybe I'll have better luck with the V4 beta.
