    Re: Ubuntu + Crossover Games + Steam

    Yes, I'm talking in part about those games that have downloadable tie files, but also about those that don't. Here are two examples:

    Re: Ubuntu + Crossover Games + Steam

    Thanks for the reply and sorry for posting in the wrong spot initially. I'm still confused. I guess the issue is really what happens if a Steam-installed game needs special settings but you just...

    Ubuntu + Crossover Games + Steam

    Hi folks,

    Re: Indiana Jones' Desktop Adventures

    Bump again. These games are super fun so it would be great if they would work better in WINE!
  13. Re: Civilization V (Steam) - Anyone Had Any Luck in Wine?

    I had the same idea and have already tried reinstalling Wine twice!
  14. Re: Civilization V (Steam) - Anyone Had Any Luck in Wine?

    Glad it's working for someone, mrbyran!

    I too have added the Wine PPA and have Wine 1.3.3 installed but to no avail.

    I hope I'm not forced to purchase the DVD too(!)
  15. Re: Civilization V (Steam) - Anyone Had Any Luck in Wine?

    Didn't work for me :(

    Oddly enough, Civilization IV doesn't work anymore either (i.e., since I upgraded to Wine 1.3.3).

  18. Re: Civilization V (Steam) - Anyone Had Any Luck in Wine?

    Thanks for the link but sadly I still couldn't get it to work. I installed DirectX and verified that I had all of the things you had in Winecfg.

    Weird. Weird especially since the demo worked fine....
  19. Re: Civilization V (Steam) - Anyone Had Any Luck in Wine?

    Thanks for the screenshot. Unfortunately, the only DirectX latest version I can find is a websetup version that doesn't work in WINE...I'll keep looking for the whole enchilada (i.e., not the...
  20. Re: Civilization V (Steam) - Anyone Had Any Luck in Wine?

    Well, no, I'm not sure I have all of the proper overrides although I think I do since the demo worked fine. Hopefully someone with the Steam version can list what overrides they have here eventually.
  21. Civilization V (Steam) - Anyone Had Any Luck in Wine?

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone was having any luck getting the Steam version of Civilization 5 to run in Wine?

    Re: What are your favorite games?

    Dominions 3! Costs a fortune, relatively speaking, but second to none if you're into that sort of game.

    OpenArena is also fun :)
