Skyrim Graphics Anomalies After Updating to Crossover 16

Hi there,

I have a weird issue with Skyrim that's only come up as of version 16 of Crossover. I know it's related to this version, because it goes away when I revert to 15.3.1.

What's happening is that a few minutes into play, the game hangs for a two to four seconds, and when it resumes I get graphics anomalies and text scrambling throughout the interface, including the debug console. I know my card has enough muscle, since I've been running the game on it for a couple of years with excellent performance, not to mention that the problem goes away when I revert to Crossover 15.3.1.

However, the recent débâcle with Steam's updates this week has forced me to switch Crossover 16.5.2, which creates the same graphics issue. Can anybody tell me what I need to adjust to get my graphics to render normally again? Can I expect the problem to go away when I upgrade to Ubuntu 16?

Here are my specs:

OS:  Ubuntu 14.04LTS 64-bit
Processor:  AMD Athlon(tm)64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5800+ x2
Graphics Card:  AMD Radeon HD 5700 Series w/ Driver Packaging Version 13.101-130523a-157671e-ATI; 2D Driver Version 15.20.2
RAM:  6.8GiB
Disk:  2.0TB

If my ATI driver seems old, it's because I always make a mess every time I try to update it. Also, I already tried the registry edits mentioned for graphics in the "First Run Hang" post of the Tips & Tricks section. It did nothing to help.

Thanks for any assist!
