Linux and Gaming

Does anyone here play PC-games on Fedora? I've been a long-time player of Neverwinter Nights, and it's expansions. The game has a free linux client ... you just buy the Windows Version, copy CD files to Linux HD, then get a few extra files from Bioware site, and can run under Linux. It's my first project to get running on my Fedora Box ^^ ... once I get my hardware and basic programs all running smoothly

Any other Linux gamers here, and what games you play then?

I tried just the other day to play a cracked version of Quake on my machine.

Unfortunately the crack means I don't have an install script, I just copy a folder accross to Windows and add the details to the registry - works a treet - in windows.

Tried to play the game with wine OMG - how unbelievably slow!

NEVER AGAIN

Well not with any cracked games, heard its OK when you actually own a legit copy of a game and can get hold of linux install scripts like for Unreal.

If you are talking about linux game versions forget this tip.
You can run Windows installed games on Fedora with Cedega.
Look this site for more info.

and does it work stable? it looks like just another emulator ... so at this moment, I'd rather follow the instructions straigth from the makers of the game ... it's probably the only game I'll play ... maybe if I can't run it on my linux pc, I'll get out Baldur's gate II out from under the dust, might need emulator for that ... thanks for link to the program

I've enjoyed playing Red Orchestra under UT2004 for AMD64 Linux. Still amazed at how well it does.

http://icculus.org has quite a few engines/installers for "regular" games - and every one I've used has done a spectacular job of running the game. Unreal works just fine, as did the others (which I can't remember). Better to run "native" than through any kind of emulation if you can...

I have Quake 3, Urban Terror and Enemy Territory running on my Linux system..
Even though it's only a P3 700, GF4 MX and 320mb ram, the games still run surprizingly well..

I play only native games now on Linux. There are enough for me now to the point where I no longer need the games that windows has to offer. Here is a list with how-to's for most all the games I play.
http://www.easylinuxguide.com/index....5912564d26c18c

I am currently using FC3 x86-64 as I want to fully move away from 32bit. I am currently testing most of my native Linux games on it to make sure they all work, so far UT2k4 and Savage are running perfect, minus the fact that UT2k4 is using /dev/dsp instead of /dev/dsp1 cause FC3 is retarded and detected my disabled onboard sound chip. Savage allows me to change it manually within the options menu for the sound device so that was cake atleast.

I use Cedega to play on FC3. I can play smoothly Warcraft III, World Of Warcraft, HL2, Counter-Strike, Day Of Defeat, City of Heroes and UT2003.

Well, I just got Total Annihilation working in Wine, sound and all, just some strange effects with the mouse.

Even have a screenshot: http://images.igloos.ca/main.php/v/t...geViewsIndex=1

Yep, too bad the performance of the game absolutely stinks on my 633 mhz celeron.

Do any of those games have copy protect? I reverted back to FC2 as I couldn't get games working with Cedega under kernel 2.6.9 or 2.6.10 (FC3).
