There is currently a subset of Steam's entire collection available on Linux (viewable on the Featured Linux Games page), however Valve is making a concerted push toward Linux as the OS of choice for gaming, meaning that more will follow. There are two reasons for this push to Linux, They believe Microsoft's Windows 8 is a catastrophe They (and a few third ...

First, do yourself a favor and make sure you're using the right drivers. To see your video driver, run lspci -k | grep -A 2 -i "VGA". If you are rocking the integrated graphics and see the Intel driver, you're good. If you should be using nvidia drivers and don't see it there, either download the drivers straight from their website (and buy painkillers) or ...

General Notes (I'm sorry for any spelling-, grammar- and wording-errors and over-complicated expressions and explanations, English is not my native language...) I managed to get Minecraft running on my ARM-Chromebook; however, it may not work for future releases (perhaps you will have to modify the scripts, perhaps it won't work at all). The Launcher I last ...

The March 27th update implemented the following changes: Refactored low level shaders to fix stuttering on NVIDIA hardware when first rendering previously unseen content. Speculative fix for rare crash at the end of matches. Valve employer vMcJohn on Reddit said that regarding the update they "changed how certain low level shaders work for all ...

This is a little bit tricky. The oddest concept you need to know is that there are two ways to install Steam on Ubuntu. One natively, and one through Wine. THESE WILL NOT RUN THE SAME GAMES. The native Steam version will only let you install games with a native version, and I think you've discovered that does not include HoM&M5. However, the Steam ...

I opened a ticket with Steam Support, and this was their response: Hello, Based on your machine's specs you may experience performance and/or launch issues when playing CS:GO that are difficult to provide adequate support for.

Originally, I assumed that the Intel driver you wanted to install was already included in your Ubuntu 14.04 installation. I booted up into a fresh installation of Ubuntu 14.04 (64bit), and checked the list of installed packages for the Intel driver. I found it, along with the packages needed for OpenGL support. Even though the generic (vesa) drivers are ...

The Dropbox way As CW3 make the save cross compatible with windows / ubuntu and mac, you can share a same save file. How-to : First, you'll need a cloud account, I choose Dropbox, but it'll probably work with every others. Careful, this is only to share a same save, not merge two save in one : you'll have to choose which one you want to keep and be sync ...

My best experience of Age of Empires 1 and 2 was running a Windows 98 WM on VirtualBox. I found Wine acceptable, but the Win 98 VM used so little resources that it was preferable to Wine. You can use an XP VM, but you have to restart explorer.exe after starting the game to resolve a couple of graphics glitches (this is true of a hardware install of XP ...

Inside PlayOnLinux, go to the "Configure" screen for the RCT2 installation, then go to the "Wine" tab then click "Configure Wine." Once the configuration window loads, click on the "Graphics" tab and click "Emulate a Virtual Desktop." You can also download the hack that allows RCT2 to be run natively in a window, but this is a far easier solution for Linux.

SOLUTION: Ok, I went to a friend's house and he showed me how dumb I was. As I said, I'm new to Ubuntu and I'm used to Windows' UI, so I always forget that, in the Ubuntu's UI, the menus are located in the top left area of the screen and not in the program's window. So I was able to enter the settings menu and map my controller In Higan, the mapping is ...

"DDO" is not an abbreviation I'm familiar with, but I'm assuming you're referring to Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited. If so, you're in luck. WineHQ has a step-by-step tutorial for it, and DDO on Wine is rated platinum. I strongly recommend visiting WineHQ and poking around, and if you should attempt this, the method that uses PlayOnLinux ...

You need the manifest of the app. The data is there but it is not "listed" in the library due to that. Manifests basically tell Steam what the app is called, what its id is, where is the source located, and default presets. Manifests are located in SteamApps and are called appmanifest_<number>.acf (<number> indicates the app number without < ...

You will have to change which device the Bluetooth module in the controller is paired to each time. Input devices like controllers are typically designed to pair one-to-one with only one other device at a time. It would be very unusual for the controller's USB and Bluetooth systems to work together to control the wireless pairing.

I'm not sure how specifically this applies to Diablo or your patch, but as for adding parameters, two ways come to mind: 1) Click "Configure" in the upper right. Select the appropriate shortcut from the list on the left of the window that appears. Put -3dfx in the "arguments" box on the "General" tab. 2) Click "Configure" in the upper right. Go to the "...
