Re: How I got Halo: Combat evolved working on wine 0.9.39
sorry to revive this thread but i can not seem to find answers anywhere:
Hello, i have been using ubuntu on my laptop for a long while, and i really like it better then windows besides the fact theirs a few games i cant run. I am here to try and fix that. I installed haloce and it boots, shows intro videos, then when it starts the graphics it really screws up, sometimes just showing blocks of colors sometimes weird shapes, other mostly unintelligible problems. Anyway here is winetricks installed:
The graphics card is:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI M56GL [Mobility FireGL V5200]
which is more then capable of playing this old game.
I have tried many things like installing more libraries and commandline switches, but i wont other listing them all. Ubuntu lists no proprietary drivers, but i have seen in many places that the open source ones should support 3d correctly.
