Wine, Crossover and Playonlinux
Posted 13 December 2016 - 10:21 PM
Doom 3, postal 2 and Red faction all installed and played as well as I remembered. Could not get Madden 07 (American football) to install. Also was pleasant surprised that steel panthers:world at war played full screen with crossover. I was never able to do that with play on linux. I also found simcity so I may dust it off too.
Anybody playing more modern games with it? I play Xcom2 and Civ4 with steam (native) but are there games not with steam / non native you play?

Know and used Crossover years ago, but even don't remember for what reason.
And i am a neither a gamer, though i like to try, getting planes into the skies with X-Plane on the Steam-platform.

Usually searched the winedb to see if it was supported and found that a lot of the apps I wanted to use just didn't work. Have used playonlinux and winetricks, which were quite good. Didn't bother much with Crossover.
