As mentioned here, my one difficulty with 64bit vs. 32bit engines is some very glitchy UI in certain programs. Here are some screenshots from Wrye Bash, a mod manager for Oblivion and other TES games.

In a 32 bit wrapper:

In a 64 bit wrapper:

That last one is using Opus, a music font that came with my music notation software. I've no idea how Wine is even accessing it, let alone why it's using it here. That window is using HTML, by the way, whereas the rest of the program doesn't.

The ugly default text is annoying, but I can live with it. The big problem is the menus aren't rendering properly at all, with most of the text invisible. In some cases it's visible on mouseover, in others it isn't. This makes the program difficult to use. Similar modding tools have the similar problems, so it's not just Wrye Bash. Fwiw, these are all necessarily installed in the same wrapper as Oblivion; otherwise they couldn't run.

I could just keep using the 32bit engine, but I've established to my satisfaction that 64bit engines take better advantage of LAA flagging, so I'd like to keep using it.

Did you try installing some fonts? Or maybe there is something in the logs about which font it is using? Could be a broken fallback or something...

Try the following winetricks
corefonts
tahoma
fontsmooth=rgb

That may at least give you better looking fonts.
I'm not sure about the UI errors, it could be related to the fonts?\


In regards to the font you installed into macOS that's normal wine can use any font installed onto your system.

Wow, that solved everything, including the buggy menus! I had tried installing fonts before in other wrappers, and they didn't work, so I'm guessing the fontsmooth setting was the solution.
