    They day I have been waiting for...
    Its confirmed!
    Wine 1.7.49 is now fully compatible with dwrite in WinSteam
    Now you don't have to use the argument: -no-dwrite
    to fix the missing fonts in Steam

    I know most of you just use the PlayOnLinux Steam package, but all of my guides download Steam from the steampowered.com website. Even the package requires a dwrite override in Wine, but it automatically sets it for you.

    I just tested it today and Steam works perfectly!
    I will be using 1.7.49 & 1.7.49-staging from now on for Steam.

    Well, I installed Skyrim on my other Mint 17.1 computer and the font problem is still there.
    Can you confirm that fonts are working out-of-the-box with Wine 1.7.49?

    Dang, that is what I was afraid of.
    I noticed that if you use the "-no-dwrite" argument in PlayOnLinux when you launch Steam, then remove the argument, the fonts still work.
    Not sure what it means, but for now, we still need it set.

    I just installed Remember Me with Steam this last weekend and never entered
    Code:
    -no-dwrite
    in PlayOnLinux Arguments.
    I'm using Wine 1.7.51-staging
    There is a chance it has been fixed with the newest staging version of Wine.
