    I was wondering about this today. Now when you change the graphics driver in the "Usersettings" file from D3D11 to "OPENGL" it switches back when you launch the game. Even tried changing it and setting the file to read only but it still used D3D11. I was curious to see how the new Open GL 4.1 renderer would perform compared to D3D 11, but it seems to no longer let you use OpenGL on Windows.

    They could at least have allowed DX10 compatibility too. If it would bring the people using Wine back, it'd be a start with all of this mess, @ZOS_GinaBruno . I guarantee that a lot of us that are affected by this move won't be coming back. I'd like to, but as it stands myself and a majority of others are quite skeptical of the devs and the transparency of this issue. Updating the system requirements page in October of last year isn't enough. Throwing it in a wall of text on the PTS natch potes also isn't enough. Alerting your consumer base to a change drastic as this would probably have helped with this situation. That way we COULD have upgraded before this. Again, updated system requirements isn't enough. Stickies well in advance on addressing this specific issue would have been enough, warranted, and appreciated.

    @NerfPlease ; I'll take a whack at that question. They deleted it because it's no longer supported. Swapping to OpenGL doesn't work anymore, so in their minds, why keep the page? It's one of those transparency issues that ZOS has a problem with. Either they're unsure of how to do it, or they just cut corners to save time/money.

    @xellink ; That'd be pretty sad if they did. Hopefully they at LEAST allow people to use Wine to play the game again. Maybe PS4 users'll get hit next. ;)

    I'm another user who was running under WINE using OpenGL. I enjoyed the game and subscribed for a year to support it, warts and all, but now I can't play, so I cancelled my subscription.

    It doesn't affect me, but, I would support it for others so that they can play on their linux boxes.

    F.Y.I. its only free as an upgrade to an existing Windows system. To switch over from Linux, you would need to buy it.

    Never played ESP.

    I also used OpenGL for WINE on my Ubuntu machine. Would like to see it return but I highly doubt it will.

    Have 3 other Windows 10 rigs so I'm still able to play.
    Wake up, we're here. Why are you shaking? Are you ok? Wake up...

    Not only would returning OpenGL allow us linux users to play though wine, but it would give an alternative for windows users that are having trouble to actually be able to play while they wait for a fix.

    Basura y mas basura todo lo del ultimo parche, el juego se volvio una total basura, y para completar yo que vengo jugando desde la beta, yo que soy un cliente fiel, ahora no puedo jugar debido a esa mierda de "ONLY DX11", no puedo creer toda la plata que gaste en esta mierda, una total falta de consideración por parte de ZOS. ADIOS.

    On the flip side, next time Matt Firor is interviewed by a gaming magazine, he will be able to say they take technical issues very seriously and have reduced number of memory leaks by 70% this year alone, and he will not be even lying.

    My fears are confirmed with forcing OGL.
    Well this sucks. Dammit why would they do that. Why?
    Just look at Gold ratings and latest Thievies Guild is GARBAGE rated.
    https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=15787
    Now I know Linux isn't officialy supported but what technical reason is there to remove OpenGL?


    Looks like this is the only way left to play ESO on Linux without dual booting



    EDIT: I just dicovered this. Darling is a translation layer that allows you to run unmodified OS X binaries on Linux. In its nature, it is similar to the well-known Wine project.

    While my system handles dx11 very nicely,. my husband's did not. Being unable to log in was a bit of a shock to him .. The fact that I could get on just lead to increased grumpiness on his part. Some warning in game might have been nice.

    Oh well what's done is done and one upgrade later , he can play once more.

    Still , this gave me a feeling of how the sudden switch could affect players. While officially Linux may not be supported by the game, restoring OGL for users would be a a wonderful thing .
