Re-reading my post it may sound like a complaint. Sorry, it wasn't meant that way. You are one of the most active testers and reporters here. I appreciate every report about Wine compatibility of a GOG game, regardless of what Wine version has been used. It at least gives me a hint if a game is playable under Wine at all, even when it requires some efforts. And you already have helped me more than once with a specific game. Thank you for that and all your efforts!
rampancy: You're probably talking about people like I who've posted about games with wine-staging vs. vanilla WINE. I'll be sure to include that information in my own posts going forward. In the meantime, if there's a specific game you would like tested in vanilla WINE, I'm sure we'd be happy to help you out.
My point was more that when someone already has tested a game with a vanilla Wine version, even unsuccessfully, this information should be preserved when a report is updated. Something like "game does not start under Wine 1.8, requires Wine staging x.y.z" or "game does run under Wine 1.8, but slowly, runs a lot faster when using CSMT". That way you easily can see what you will gain when you use a different or patched Wine version or why you have to use it.
Of course, when you add information about vanilla Wine compatibility to your reports, I would be more than happy. :)
