Re: Crossover Linux worth the money?

15 thousand games is pretty good... at the same time, how can they guarantee all of those game will run? That is a lot of scripts... I didn't realize Wine required even more steps for using a 64-bit prefix? I've used 64-bit Wine in PlayOnLinux with a 64-bit wineprefix for many games and it runs nice...

Re: Get this game free while it lasts

Sanctum 2 is pretty fun specially in co-op with Steam friends.
Unfortunately you can't play it offline in a LAN, but online its great.
It can get kind of repetitive too

Re: Steam games on Mint?

With older hardware it really comes down to which games you want to play. These days any hardware can run games, but the older the video card, you can only play older games. I have a Chromebook with Ubuntu 12.10 and I can play Torchlight and some DOS games and 2D games. I was actually able to play S...

Re: I cannot get Quake from GOG to work

Here is a guide for Darkplaces Engine and Quake
Darkplaces Guide
All you need is the PAK files for it to run in Darkplaces. You get a lot more options and settings with this engine.

Re: Sound problems in Wolfenstein the New Order

If the sync problem happens in Windows, then Wine will just inherit the same problem.
Have you found any solutions for Windows?

I recently posted a step-by-step guide on Soldier of Fortune for PlayOnLinux: GamersOnLinux

Re: Cant launch roblox from browser.

What engine is Roblox made with? Looks like it might run in Windows XP still: Roblox The windows installation instructions are pretty simple, but do not tell us what is really going on. Maybe it uses the Unity engine which has a Unity Player that is compatible with Browsers. Unfortunately it won't w...

Re: Crossover Linux worth the money?

I have never used Crossover because many stubborn Windows games require patched versions of Wine which are not supported by Crossover. So I have stuck with PlayOnLinux and it has served me really really well. In fact I have posted step-by-step guides on how to install many AAA, indie, retail, steam,...

Re: Where is the Wine savegame location? Need a bit of clarification on Wine

I have a feeling Google Drive doesn't work in the Wine environment. I manually upload my save games from each prefix (virtual drive in PlayOnLinux) to backup my games. Most games actually keep your saves in ~/Documents You will find a "My Games" Directory with save games from different gam...

Re: Playing Hearthstone on Serena

If I remember correctly, Hearthstone uses Battle.net right? Recently Battle.net has upgraded to Visual C 2015 Wine isn't natively compatible with that so you will need to manually install vcrun2015 before installing Battle.net Here are the steps: Installing Visual C 2015 in PlayOnLinux Miscellaneous...

Re: Elder Scrolls III Oblivion

Did you try this step-by-step guide: Ovblivion in PlayOnLinux

Any time I experience glichy textures or missing textures, its probably related to Direct x(d3dx9) You can always try different versions of Wine. Definitely give Wine 2.0-staging a try.

Re: What's your favorite native Linux game?

Sure is. I've heard its using a wrapper, but I don't know how to be sure. Either way it runs pretty good, so I'm happy I can play it in Linux

Re: Game Helbreath doesn't start with Wine!

yes, AppDB reports old versions, but there is a chance it might work with 1.6.2 or 1.8.4

Re: PlayOnLinux-Wine Virtual Desktop

I am still experiencing this virtual desktop problem. For now... my only solution is to not use the virtual desktop at all... for all games.
I hope it is eventually fixed in Mint because the virtual desktop has a lot of benefits.

Right now its Terraria. I have been playing it with my wife-n-kids for a long time. Creating new worlds, killing bosses, crafting weapons and building houses. Amazing sandbox game. Other native games I've really come to like: - Don't Starve Together - Torchlight II (Synergy mod) - Shadow of Mordor -...
