Team Fortress 2, Steam and 3D Games Performance
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 20, 2008
Team Fortress 2 works but I get frequent stutters even when it has its on desktop and I renice hl2.exe to -3. The virtual desktop with wine is excellent, no more alt+tab fullscreen resolution changing madness.
The game puts an asterisk aside low texture quality in the video options of the gameeven if my card has 256 MB of memory. When I had the game installed in Windows the asterisk selected high texture quality.
So I am wondering how can wine properly detect my video card's RAM amount and what are the general configuration tips to enhance wine games performance?

Hey, I installed Steam on Wine and Playonlinux, however, when I press "play" on Team Fortress (inside of steam's library or straight from the desktop) it just says something like starting, or updating team fortress 2, then a few minutes later after it's "done" steam just shuts down and no team fortress 2 is showing.. Is there anyway of playing Team Fortress 2 or do I just have to install Windows 7 again? :/

Team Fortress 2 > Micro Stuttering
- date: June 16, 2011
after a long period using Windows XP and Windows 7 I would like to go back to Ubuntu since I don't do anything beside surfing, folding ([email protected]
) and playing some TF2. So I tried to get Team Fortress 2 up and running but I've been disappointed by unbearable stuttering.
My hardware specs
i7 2600K @ 4.6Ghz (stable overclock)
GTX 570 Windforce
8GB 1600 Ram
What I have done so far
I've been using Ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04 and Wine versions 1.2 and 1.3. For my graphics card I installed the latest Nvidia driver to ensure the latest support.
I always got Steam up and running, so far nothing special. I managed to install TF2 and connected to a server without any problem. Here it starts --> I tried different tweaks (-dxlevel 81, -gl, some entries inside the registry, vSync on and off, low details, disabling ingame community) but I always get micro stuttering (hopefully it's the right word --> I can run around on a map and every 10-15 secs my fps dropping down from 150 to 20 which

Team Fortress 2 how to: testers needed
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 25, 2007
I wrote a how-to on installing and configuring TF2 in Wine (mostly from existing sources), but I need some TF2 owners to test it. If anyone would be willing to give it a shot and let me know if it needs any changes, it would be greatly appreciated:
EDIT - Also, I need some good screenshots to add to the doc. They must be shots of the game running in Wine, but they don't have to be in a Wine virtual desktop (if you tell me they were done with Wine, I'll just have to trust you ). If anyone has any, either post them as attachments here or contact me through PM and I'll give you an e-mail addy to send them to.
Team Fortress 2 doesn't load maps
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 17, 2007
I am using Feisty with dual boot with Windows XP. I can run most games very well on windows but not on Ubuntu, everything installed fine (via download, not disc) and I'm using Wine version: 0.9.33-0ubuntu1 all seems well until I finally try to join a game, or start one or play in anyway what so ever, it loads, but JUST before it launches, like 1 progress bar division away, it just won't load anymore, and the HDD activity L.E.D dies too. I also have HORRIBLY poor perfomrance on CSS (Kinda off topic, sorry ) and have roughly 4fps on stress test and with all on minimum settings I have an improvement to...13 fps -.-'. Yet on Windows all is well :S I have a ATI radeon X1650 using drivers installed through Envy (I try to use as many automatic installers, since I'm still new to Ubuntu and have to do stuff like that orscript kiddie style, moronicly copying and pasting , though am learning...slowly
Team Fortress 2 "Meet the Sniper" Trailer

In his former life as a tracker of dangerous game in the unforgiving Australian outback, the Sniper would spend months by himself. Prolonged isolation taught him a valuable lesson: You don't have to rely on other people if you never miss.
Team Fortress 2 runs real laggy in Wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 14, 2009
Under Vista, TF2 ran great with my hardware and specs, but with wine its laggy (and not because of my internet connection) there is an annoying white flash every few seconds And its just very jittery and slow, and this is running it under the lowest visual specs possible. Is there anything I can do to make it run any better?
Any help would be great!
