ATI Radeon HD Can't play games with Wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 24, 2011
I'm having trouble running games in Wine since I've switched video cards. Thing is, benchmarks work fine and I downloaded 3dMark2000 and it works fine while running in Wine. I'm a gamer and I'm about to put down Ubuntu for good, i don't want to go back to Windows, but I'm afraid I may have to if I can't find a remedy.
Any help at all would be appreciated.
Best games under Wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 30, 2009
What games do people recommend that run well under wine?
I'm particularly talking about more recent commercial windows based games, not obscure card games
I know WoW runs well, but I'm not keen on monthly subscriptions.

How do you install games in wine?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 12, 2008
I hear people with CS:S and warcraft 3 and stuff like that but where do you get it? Can I pop in my cd's and install it from there and if I have a game in a file format how do I do it? Any advice would help.
Can't install games for Wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 6, 2010
I'm running Wine 1.2, and for some reason I can't install a game from a CD. I've already tried allowing it to execute (both by right-clicking on the icon and giving the permission, which it rejects, and by giving permission to execute anything and everything on the CD), and nothing has worked. Any ideas?
If it's at all important, I'm trying to install "The Sims" (original).
Problem installing games with Wine Newbie
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 3, 2012
I've been trying to install both World of Warcraft and League of Legends using Wine to no avail. My WoW tutorial has been lost after I decided to downgrade from the 64 bit OS to the 32 bit OS (I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS btw), so let's concentrate on League first.
I was following http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/sho … ?t=1946188 as my tutorial for setting up League. I do not have a pre-existing game install, and I am not able to find one anywhere that I have looked; however, the main concern is that nothing happens when I double-click the LoL install client. I get a loading icon and Wine never loads up. I have followed all the instructions on the tutorial up to step 4, and I even created the folder like Step 4 indicates (Just don't have a pre-existing install to move over).
This is my first time with Linux, and I really do want to be able to switch from windows. I really would like to be able to play a game of some sort on my machine by the end of the day.

Multiplayer Games Under Wine ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 6, 2006
I am trying to get a Quake3 based game called ELite Force running on wine and am having troubles with the multiplayer. i tried creating a server on my linux box and had a XP computer connect to it via LAN and tried the other way around as well but got no results. the search for servers option was unable to resolve any servers on the LAN or internet. i am curious if this is a problem with wine? has anyone played LAN multiplayer games on it ? ( especially variants based on the quake3 engine )
on a side note i read that someone using a similiar game had to copy the installation and its registry entries from a windows based installation to make multiplayer work. does that make any sense ??
[SOLVED] No sound in some games in wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 24, 2012
Hi, I've been having problems with getting sound to work with two out of three of my games that I have installed with steam on wine.
I've installed Borderlands 2, Dead Island, and Portal 2. Borderlands 2 works flawlessly and sound is great.
However, Dead Island and Portal 2, do not have sound. Although the graphics, and the game play is fine*, there is no sound.
I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit with Wine version 1.5.19.
Under audio tab in winecfg, the selected driver is winepulse.drv, and the output device is set to system default. When I click test sound, there is a 2 or 3 second delay before I hear a sound.
Also when I disable mmdevapi, or set it to native (windows), Borderlands 2 sound no longer works.
The other options for mmdevapi, however, still give me sound in Borderlands 2, but none of them give me sound in Dead Island, or Portal 2.
EDIT: So I tried to see if it was just my headset reacting badly with Portal 2 and Dead Island(its a wireless Plantronics H
What are the most popular ubuntu native games?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 19, 2011
just as the title, i would want to know what are the most popular and/or best native games out there. The only games i currently play on windows are Heroes of Newerth (tried that in wine and the linux version, my internal cant really deal with OpenGL of it...) and WoW. So since i spend 80% of my time on ubuntu i would like some suggestions so i can expand my time even further
