Game performance with WINE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 5, 2006
Hi, just a simple question for all those who emulate games on linux using wine and have also run the same game on a windows machine:
If you had two identical systems, but one with windows and one with linux and you decided to run a game on both systems, would the game's performance on the linux system suffer because of wine?
I thought this might be the case since wine also consumes more of the cpu's power and physical memory, but I have also heard that some games may actually be faster. Any clarification is appreciated.
Game Editor with WINE couple issues. (with /lib in linux, and window size in wine)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 23, 2011
I am running Game Editor (or trying to) ... and I have a couple different problems:
1) When I run the linux binary from terminal it says:
Can't find installed game ... (installed with wine)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 19, 2012
So i downloaded Monkey Island 2 - iso file. I mounted it using terminal with the command:
mount -o loop file/directory/filename.iso /mnt/disk
then i used the command: wine setup.exe
Wine showed up, I browse a directory and the game was installed.
However when i try to find where the game is the directory just don't exist. I try in
.wine/drive_c/Program Files where it should be , but there's nothing there. I installed the game 3 times using different paths and my total disk space was getting smaller every time ... so there's got to be games installed on my computer. None of the directories showed up. The .wine folder is only 87 Mb, while there's got to be 3 games around 2Gb each.
I'm using Ubuntu 11.10, and wine-1.3.28
How can I find out what happened and where are the games ...
Thanks for the help!

[SOLVED] Hotline Miami (game) with Wine?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 18, 2013
Has anyone managed to get the game Hotline Miami to work on any linux distro besides Arch (the only one that works according to: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...sion&iId=26936).
I've tried on Ubuntu 12.10 64bit and on a virtual machine running Slackware 14 64bit without being able to even launch the game.
I've got it running on a Win7 virtual machine but it's too laggy to be played well.
Tried the game on a friend's computer machine and it's the only windows application I've badly needed to get working since switching to linux.
Edit: managed to get it working on the win7 VBOX - the trick is to actually read the prompt when installing the VBOX additions and answer no to Directx which is yes to aero which make the game playable.

Improving performance in games with Wine?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 27, 2007
(Heh, I actually came here to post a sound problem but I fixed it while making the thread. So here's a new thread!)
I decided today to try out gaming with the help of Wine. I managed to successfully install one of my favorite games-- StarCraft-- and its expansion, Brood War. It starts and loads up great, but the actual gameplay itself is sort of laggy and jerky. I don't think it's bad enough to the point where it's entirely unplayable, but it is difficult. I was wondering if there was a way to make it go smoother, or if this is just an issue with Wine that I'll have to deal with?
Also... is there a way to get the latest StarCraft versions (or latest versions of other games I play? I don't play many... StarCraft and WarCraft III are the main ones) Battle.net with Wine seems to not work very well at all when I try, and that was how I got the updated versions with Windows.
