DirectX?

Postby EvilxBunny on Sat Mar 24, 2007 7:14 am

Hello!

I was wondering how well LinuxMint supports DirectX?

Say if i get Cedega, would I be able to play games that require DirectX (not OpenGL)?

(I searched the forum and found nothing, so I decided I should post! :))

Thank you :D!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

DirectX is Windows only, does not work in Linux. However Wine has support for directx.

You should Google around and check the relevant Cedega forums. Some games work 100% tip top, others don't work at all or their copy protection mechanism can give you troubles ... it's best you check in the forums of Cedega's makers.

Cedega seems to work pretty well for DirectX games, even the ones that aren't "supported"

Sometimes ignorance hits you :)
Thought Cedega was some game when it really it's a fix for Windows games on Linux.
