A Write up on my thoughts on Crossover Games VS Normal Wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 12, 2009
So for the last week ive been doing some testing on Crossover Games and Wine for certain games. Before you come out and say its all the same and stuff I would beg to differ.
First off I think Crossover games is tad smarter in detection of the games its support and some that arent. Alright ill list the games i tried and my thoughts on running then from both formats.
At the time of this writing wine is at the 1.1.16 and crossover is 7.2.0

Wine: As usual its a pain to install steam with wine. Font smoothing isnt on by default and the games would randomly crash with the recommended setup from the wine HQ appDB site. If you didnt understand basic computer knowlodge you would prolly get frustrated with this method.
Crossover: Steam was actually easy to install with the GUI they provided. Font smoothing is on by default and you could easily see the server text and the GUI text. Amazingly I have not once have the gam

My mdadm Raid 6 Server Write Up
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 10, 2011
Since I am new to the Unix environment I wanted to document my media-server build so that others can use it as a guideline to bypass all of the pitfalls I seemed to hit.
This is a three part write up:
1)Ubuntu set-up and Raid share
2)Sharing/Monitoring/Alert(s) of raid
Over time my media has gone to past the 2TB mark. As such I have been looking into a cheap redundant solution that also has the ability to run handbrake.
Motherboard - Gigabyte EP45 UD3P
Processor - Intel 2 Quad 2.66GHz
Ram - Kingston Hyper X T1 (2x2GB sticks)
Hard Drive(s) - 1 WD Caviar Blue 160 GB 7200RPM
6 Samsung F4EG 2TB 5400RPM
Initially I set up the server to Win7 and use the ICH10R to run the Intel Rapid Storage Technology to run a raid 5 and share via samba over the network. This turned out to be a bad idea on multiple levels:
* The Intel Rapid Storage Technology program has no n

Ubuntu + Crossover Games + Steam
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 30, 2011
I've been using Wine to run Steam forever and it works passably well. However, there are several games I've been unable to play and so I just downloaded the most recent demo of Crossover Games in the hopes that it might be able to get some of these games working.
However, I'm stumped as to how one installs Steam games from Crossover Games. When the crossover games interface seems to require that you either select a disc, a folder, or an installation file, but if you want to install a Steam game, you won't necessarily have any of these?
Am I missing something?
Crossover games/Wine cutscene 1 fps
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 4, 2009
SO I download the trial for crossover games and installed Emperor Battle for Dune, the gameplay works fine but the starting subliminal brainwashing(you know if you play EA's games) and the cutscenes were blurry and they only run at about 1 frame per second(same with the sound).
anyone knows what the problem is?
Can you run video games like normal on Ubuntu?

Do games install and play like they do in windows in Ubuntu?
PlayonLinux or Crossover Games?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 26, 2010
I'm trying to decide which one to get. PlayOnLinux is good since it has a list of built in games to install, but Crossover Games can install them from the .exe. Which should I get, or should I get them both?
How to protect my original Xbox games legally?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 15, 2013
Firstly, I do not support piracy nor do I have any future intentions to do so.
I would simply like to know if it is possible to copy my existing Xbox games than rather risk destroying the original copies.
I would assume that I would possibly need dual layer discs (I think?) and they apparently say the Xbox itself needs to be fitted with a MOD chip?
I have heard of people installing MOD chips into their Xbox's which enables them to play copied games? I would assume the same would apply for my situation. I don't even know if the MOD chip is legal either and what implications it would have on the Xbox.
I guess my real questions would be which route would be legal and the most safest for my Xbox.
I know I could go to other forums and ask but to be honest the Linux community is the only forum that I have felt comfortable with.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated,
Kde & Crossover/Crossover games menu entries
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 31, 2010
I recently installed KDE on my Ubuntu install and quite like it. Not bad considering I hated KDE 4 when it first came out
Anyway I have noticed an issue with the KDE menu. I have both Crossover and Crossover games installed and only ONE of the menu entries is accessable.
They both show but the submenu for Crossover games doesn't expand. I checked with the menu editor and the entries are there, they just don't show.
Both menus work perfectly in Gnome.
Any ideas? It's more annoying than anything but I would like it fixed
