Ubuntu; Steam games through Wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 15, 2008
How would I go about getting Steam games to work through Wine? I found this tutorial, which allows me to open Steam fine (with the exception of Steam friends, which does not work properly, but I gather that this applies to everybody who has managed to get it working) and launch a game to the 'New Game', 'Load Game', et cetera, menu.
However, on some games (most notably Team Fortress 2; I don't seem to remember this happening on any other game) the game window flashes between what it is meant to be showing and either just blackness or the screen shown when the main menu is loading. However, on others the main menu is fine, but when I start a game, I just get a screen that is one solid colour (although said colour varies as time goes on; I assume that it changes depending on what should be shown). Can anybody give me any help on how to get Steam games working properly on Ubuntu?
Playing Windows Steam games through Wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 15, 2013
I am currently trying to get my Steam games (That I purchased through the Windows version) to work on Linux.
I installed Steam.exe using Wine, and everything works well, allows me to download my games and everything ...
My problems started when trying to load the games.
GTA IV wont load at all, not giving any errors ...
GTA San Andreas changes the resoluton to 800x600 and then does nothing else, non splash screen or anything
Ragnarok online 2 loads the client, and then when I click 'Play' it comes with an empty error box, only allowing me to click 'OK
Is there anything I can do to get these to work?
Is it possible to play NonLinux Steam games through Wine?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 28, 2015
So I'm wondering if its possible to install Wine and then install a game in the Linux Steam client and change the path or do something to make that particular game run through Wine?
It seems like it would be possible...or at least not impossible, I'm just not sure how it would happen. I haven't used Wine in years.
Also while I'm in the Gaming forum I want to ask. On Windows Minecraft runs decently, but so far with my tests on Ubuntu it runs much better, but a simple game like Game Dev Tycoon runs really slowly and laggy. I'm curious as to why that is.
Game Dev Tycoon even has a Linux specific install so it's not running through Wine or anything.
This is Game Dev Tycoon for those who don't know. It's pretty entertaining.
I edited the title to try to make it clearer. I'm trying to install non-Linux games in Ubuntu through Wine.
Trying to Run Steam Games on Wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 29, 2012
Hallo, I'm pretty much a novice at the inner workings of computers, but I've been attempting to get Steam, the game distributor... thing, running along with the games therein, using wine.
So, I've managed to get Steam itself running, and installed a few games, but when I try to run them, they crash silently and quickly before reaching any sort of menu screen.
the games I've tried are Half Life 2: Episode 1, Portal, and Oblivion. the first two crashed during the loading screen before the main menu, and the latter just seemed to not open up the game from the launcher menu.
has anyone experienced similar problems, or have any reccomendations on what to do about this, or where to go?

Well I really want to play 8BitMMO, and I press play on Steam but it doesn't open (I guess Steam doesn't support WINE). Any other way of doing this?

[SOLVED] All Steam games in Wine return same error
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 24, 2015
Hi, I've been setting up a new Slackware 14.1 install on a much newer computer than I was previously using, and have been running into significant trouble trying to get anything at all to run in Windows Steam under Wine. I'm using the open source Radeon drivers because I have a HD 4850 which is unsupported by the current Catalyst version and I think I can safely assume this is part of the issue. In case it matters or if anyone is curious, I can run very old games in Linux native Steam like CS 1.6 but anything Source engine based or recent doesn't work returning a couple different things I'm not concerned about at this juncture. That can wait for a videocard with better Linux support.
Anyway, I'm running Steam in wine with dwrite disabled so text will display. The consistent error no matter what game I try to launch is
err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0x7ec31dd1
I can find absolutely nothing about "0x7ec31dd1" specifically an
Choppy/echo audio playing steam games through Wine1.7
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2015
I have a Asus c300ma-edu chromebook and installed xfce trusty via crouton. Once in, I grabbed software center and Mangler(for ventrilo). Then installed Wine1.7 and installed Steam through Wine. Steam in home streaming works perfect minus the sound. When streaming from my Windows 7x64 Ultimate machine, the sound is very choppy and echos, basically play on mute or not at all its so bad. I figured it might be WINE related so I wiped and re-installed xfce trusty but this time with the steam linux native client. Some games sound works fine but some still have a crackle instead of the choppy/echo. This is fine but most games don't stream well with the steam linux version. So now I am back on xfce 4.10 trusty (hope I'm saying this right) and trying to fix the sound produced in Wine.
So some things I have tried,
1. Installed gedit and changed default-fragment-size-msec = 10 to 5 in the etc/pulse/daemon.conf
2. changed from the default to alternate-sample-rate = 48000 and took out
