I, play on fedora 27 many games and I have problem. All work fine but after around 45min since computer started in some gme wineserver use my cpu lot and game is unplayable. I need to reboot my computer fr all work fine. These screen of atop take place in the same zone ingame.

Before reboot Before reboot

After reboot After reboot

I try everythings, Changing version of wine, make reboot of wine my game ect... I don't know why games work perfectly and in a second wineserver use CPU and game is unplayable.

I use a amd card with Radeon driver and fedora 27. Actually I'm on wine 3.3. Linux based game (stellaris borderlands) are not affected.

are the wine games you run 32 bit? they may have memory leaks or other issues. I play WoW with wine64 on my system, no memroy leaks, no slow downs evern after 4 to 6 hours of raiding and dungeoning. I also run discord and other linux apps while playing wow.

Yep aion is on 32b, 64bit version of game doesn't work with wine (or I never success to mke work it) but I don't think it's the problem because even if I don't play and just let the computer in standby for one hours after reboot the game lag instantly. I don't know why or if there are somethings better for monitor PC and see which program launch when lag coming.

if the computer is not running wine and you say it starts to lag after an hour, then some other program is the problem. Can you post any logs, or at least see what might be taking resources, using top to monitor your idle computer for the hour you say it takes to start lagging?
