Re: Crunchbang gaming.

Hey now I had UT2k4 working in Linux for a little while now, With the Ballistic Mod and everything big_smile

What version do you have? I have the Midway, and I had to find a special run script to install it. there is a tutorial here, but if you want the script, just let me know, I have a copy of it.

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

When I pick up stuff on the Humble Bundles that has Steam versions, I go and activate the keys... even if I play them without Steam.  I figure the more visible linux support, the better, right?

Personally, I've been loving L4D2 and No More Room In Hell.  If you like Breach & Clear (which you should) you will probably also like Frozen Synapse.

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

Rune for Linux, still looking good. You may be able to torrent it but it's only sporadically on.
Aliens vs. Predator 1999 (CxOver/Wine).
The DarkMod is now standalone on Linux.
Heretic 2, still got the installer somewhere.
HeXen - Edge of Chaos mod for the Doom 3 installer.
Looking good. Go to some game footage and how to load here.

Many many others, of couse - UT2004 (my modded UT2004 Is over 100 GB installed), also many WINE games - Skyrim, Borderlands etc, I mention WINE because all the games I play on it run much better than Windows native. Everything. Anything is possible with know-how.

How come games such as Skyrim or Borderlands run better in WINE than on Windows natively?
That is surprising.

@servingwater --- because Windows 7 needs ~750MiB to run a bare desktop; #! needs ~100MiB. I imagine the processor overhead is lower in the #! desktop as well... big_smile

I see.  smile
I would imagine however that anybody attempting to play Skyrim would have enough RAM in his setup to not make that matter that much if all.
I guess what GPU is being used could count as well......

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

I would caveat the "everything better with enough know-how" statement with the inability to run certain games at all due to directx stuff. For example, there's absolutely no way to run Saint's Row the Third right now in wine...just sayin'. Know how ain't always the blocker smile

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

I write games using !#

[video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90SOnbgHaTU[/video]

This one's coming out this year at some point for PCs (Linux, Mac, Windows) and Plastation Vita (and hopefully PS4 a bit later after that, fingers crossed).

!# is a really great OS for distraction free coding. I used to use macs, but got fed up with all that bouncy stuff and beeping. Windows is still, sadly, a necessary part of doing this for a living.

Cheers
Charlie.

Please tell me OS X is like KDE, where you can disable all of it, instead of Enlightenment, where it laughs in your face that you can't....

OT: They updated BG:EE to 1.3, and it's still not available on Linux. Meh.
