View Full Version : Help with Team Fortress 2 on Wine/PlayonLinux

August 11th, 2011, 01:48 AM
Hi, I'm a Xubuntu user that has been gaming on wine (League of Legends, Ace of Spades, Anarchy Online) for about 2 Years. Most of time the games run without error, but I've encountered a fairly significant problem in Team Fortress 2 on PlayonLinux. There is no text on the main menu or server list. I can manage to navigate to a random server blindly, but I would REALLY like text to read.

What shows:
Kill Notifications [Like in This image (http://www.google.com/imgres?q=tf2+kill&um=1&hl=en&client=ubuntu&sa=N&channel=cs&biw=1920&bih=968&tbm=isch&tbnid=ch1HWyo7F90JoM:&imgrefurl=http://www.kotaku.com.au/2008/09/the_dark_knight_as_told_in_tf2_kill_alerts-2/&docid=UvlrvC1fxuLT-M&w=320&h=295&ei=fyVDTpa-HITx0gHJ7ZmwCQ&zoom=1)]
When you break personal records(You stayed alive longer as Soldier than your previous best)
In game Chat

What Does not
Main Menu Button text
Weapon Names/Descriptions in the loadout screen
When you put the crosshair over a player, it does not show their name, only their health.

EDIT:Solved, was accidentally using wine version 1.3.23b, switched to 1.3.25 and everything worked fine.
