Requiring some assistance

Postby 3lud13 on Wed May 21, 2014 6:46 pm

Been trying to make some old school games work on my new laptop to pass the time abit and contstantly get error messages.
I have read mountains of tutorials and tried many different settings but nothing will run they all come up with an error message.
Im using a 64bit mate 16 distro and trying top run old games such as starcraft, diablo 2, dungeon keeper, bulders gate all games which I thought ran fine under wine but I am having no luck.
I have tried play on linux and even going with the default settings I get no luck tried reinstalling games as well as [play on linux.
Will try to install some again soon to get some of the error messages if that helps.

A couple of the error messages I get one from diablo 2 the other dungeon keeper

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There are step-by-step guides for three of those games on GamersOnLinux.com
Starcraft
Diablo 2
Dungeon Keeper

Also make sure you have the proprietary drivers for your video card/chip (Intel, AMD, Nvidia)
