I wonder if I can also update the engine used while I'm at it. Shouldn't I expect better performance with the engine 1.7.1D3Dboost or the latest 1.7.2? (I think 1.7.1D3Dboost is better for 3d graphics right?)
I tried the D3DBoost... with it enabled I actually got worse performance in STO... but you can always try it, just switch to that engine and use the registry setting change to enable it. D3DBoost can help, and in some games its made incredible performance gains... but its still preliminary changes that one day will get all the way into main Wine, and still needs a lot of work. Try whatever you want though, always fun to play around with.
