I found out about a neat project called SDL-OpenGL-HQ which provides scaling for SDL1.2 apps.
I managed to build it but when I wanted to try it (with Dosbox) I only get the following error:

Exit to error: Can't init SDL No available video device

I wanted to know if other people would have better luck on different configs. I only tried this on the latest NVidia driver but I would like to know if the problem remains on Intel and AMD open source drivers.

I made builds and a README available here: https://lutris.net/files/tools/sdl-openglhq/

An installer of Postal using the binary from the Open Source engine is now available! Note that it uses the Steam data and requires Steam to be running to play so there is little point to use it currently ;)

UPDATE: Another binary without SteamWorks is now available, making it possible to play the game without Steam being open (The game assets are still from Steam)

Wine 2.0-rc1 was released a few hours ago and builds are now available on Lutris.

Please note that while Wine 2.0 sounds like a great thing, don't be fooled by pretty version numbers. I know this is a RC but most of the interesting patches are still being reviewed and I doubt that they'll all make it to 2.0.

As far as this RC goes, it is quite underwhelming and doesn't make any difference when testing the usual games DOOM (2016) and Strider (2014, DX11) compared to 1.9.24. Let's hope that RC2 will be more interesting!

Also, we have no plans to make Wine 2.0 the default version in Lutris for a long period of time. The Wine project is very active and there is a lot to be expected in the 2.1.x cycle which we'll make the default as soon as possible (preferably a Staging version).
