Can't make games go fullscreen
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 21, 2008
When I set fullscreen games (Urban Terror, Nexuiz, etc.) to the full resolution of my screen they insist on being windowed, and won't respond to mouse input. To get them fullscreen and mouse-responsive I have to set them to a smaller resolution (which is difficult to do with only the keyboard in some games).
Another, possible related problem is as follows: The screensaver goes off after a few minutes in fullscreen games. Whatever governs when it's triggered thinks the computer is idle when fullscreen games are active.
Anyway to make linux games go faster by tweaking opengl somehow?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 15, 2005
Maybe by disabling high detail stuff...things like that. I'm talking about outside of the game americasarmy(unless you know some good performance tips for this), and maybe in the xorg.conf...but i want to affect the opengl drivers themselves to try and squeeze out some more performance if possible.
The Chess games in Fullscreen for Linux?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 14, 2012
Hi, I would like to list all the possible linux games of chess that could be played in a fullscreen, i.e. sthg cool would be to start it with cmd
chess -fullscreen -new -humanvscpu.
For mythtv, this could be useful, and to control it directly without mouse but with multimedia vista remote control.
12.04 What do I need to do to make games, emulators, and Ren'Py run correctly?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 21, 2012
So, from the first time I even attempted it, I've had trouble getting emulators to work right in Ubuntu. Now, that trouble has spread to normal games, and even Ren'Py, which was working just fine in previous releases. The interesting thing is that ZSNES works absolutely fine as far as I can tell, though admittedly I've yet to try anything past the title screen. Steam (Launched through WINE) works fine as well with the only game my computer has the power to run (Cave Story+). PCSX seemed to work okay, but had some sound errors and was going kind of slow. I had a lot of other programs up though, and I still have Pulse Audio, which I've been told numerous times I should get rid of. Ren'Py outright refuses to work now. I'm even working off of a fresh install of 12.04, which I assumed would fix it, if nothing else. I installed Ren'Py, and, sure enough, it still looked like it does in the attached image. When trying to load a game (in this case, Katawa Shoujo), I got the loading image, and t
where did my games go??
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 24, 2010
I'm running Ubuntu 10.4 LTS and all of a sudden the games disappeared from the Applications menu. I use Mahjongg and FreeCell to unwind and basically to waste time.
Anyone have an idea how I might recover them?
games go SLOW, is direct 3d being used or only openGL, how do i know?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 28, 2006
i recently subscribed to "cedega" the windows game installer for linux, and all games i run go very slow and choppy, which according to my hardware shouldn't happen, amd X2 4800+, Nvidia 7800gtx, looking through my nvidia properties all i see is openGL settings, i have a feeling direct3d is not around, how can i tell?
So why don't developers make games for Linux?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 14, 2005
Obviously one of the reasons is because of the small market. But is that the only reason? Is it more difficult to make the games for Linux (code-wise)? Do the graphics turn out siginificantly worse than on Windows? I'm pretty clueless about game development for *nix systems.
I have Unreal Tournament 2004 which I've played under Windows. However, when I installed it (I'm not even sure if it installed successfully...), it would not work. The installation process definitely needs to be simpler and just work. I posted on forums, but to no avail.
flash won't go fullscreen
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 1, 2010
Flash works fine inside the browser, but it won't go fullscreen. It goes fullscreen for a fraction a second, then drops back into the browser.
It's the same for any browser: chrome, firefox, opera. It happens on youtube and hulu.
It does not happen if I log in as a different user, just my account.
It works fine on my other computer (also ubuntu 10.04).
Shockwave Flash 10.2 d161 (64-bit). Ubuntu Lucid 10.04.
There are no flash plugins in my home directory (.mozilla/plugins/ or similar places). I've tried flash-aid in firefox.
Any ideas how to fix it?
where do tar games go?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 28, 2014
I followed this tutorial:
I somehow managed to install a few games. when I am finished installing them the games tend to start automatically, then I install another. I just assumed that each game would place an icon somewhere in the application menu. it did not. all the games I installed were tar gz or bz2. I recall two games off the top of my head: 1. astromenace 2. red eclipse
where did the games go? where does software installed by tar usually go? they must be somewhere in the directory tree. logic would suggest that if I was able to find these two games, I would probably also be able to find any others that I have already installed and choose to install in the future. good tutorial, by the way, I have never been able to install any tar file before this.
Where do wine installed games go
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 22, 2004
I have a few and I installed using wine and I have no idea where they went. anyone know what I do? I ran it again and there was an option for play game and did nothing when clicked.
Any help would be useful, the games are populus and Mortal Konbat 4.
