lmde-4-cinnamon-64bit installed but game says otherwise

Post by visual_soma »

Hello, first time linux , first time mint.

I installed lmde-4-cinnamon-64bit system onto my new PC yesterday and its been working great. I wanted to download call of duty: warzone, but it tells me that you need a 64-bit system to do so. I am certain that I booted this system.

any ideas as to why the game cant recognise this/

thanks in advance

The Call of Duty: Warzone web site doesn't mention it being able to run in Linux. Are you trying to run it under Wine?

yeah i got wine and then PlayOnLinux which is apparently the "front end of wine" and it was able to run the exe file and open blizzard but when I go to Warzone and click " play for free " thats when the operating system requirement pops up

Well, of course it does. Your wine is 32bit. You need a 64bit wine but it's full of major bugs.
Coming to a thread near you: Lots of bragging about my AMD 5950X. Currently delayed due to high demand.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

Even if you do install 64-bit WINE, the consensus appears to be that Call of Duty: Warzone is not yet playable on it.
