    This comparison of Wine with Windows XP looks interesting http://wiki.winehq.org/BenchMark-0.9.5

    Hi guys,

    I saw one of you mention Morrowind. Does it run through wine? Or does it require cedega?

    I mean, the only curreng games I play in winblows are Morrowind (+expansions) and TW2k6 (and this only when I have access to the CD-ROM of my father).

    There's a Loki installer for Morrowind.

    Though the movies intro sucks (choppy), but the game itself runs great. Just hit escape continuously to pass through the movie clips.

    Thanks, for the link AI. However, it still doesn't tell me if it is Wine or Cedega. Though cedega is not expensive, I'd rather support a libre project (and it is free, too). Also, the installer seems to be for Morrowind only (I own both expansions)

    BTW: About the videos, I once read on the Morrowind forum that using a no-cd patch and then copying the videos to the hard disk would solve these problems.

    Back on topic, if any of you is into graphical adventures, ScummVM runs older ones (up to Broken Sword 2) just fine.

    As I recall it's wine, I'm not 100% sure.

    Re: I don't want to Wine...

    Im about to try wine, some games I have to play! XP still on drive just in case LOL.

    Some keep refering to wine and cedega as emulation? Its just executing .dll's in linux! Its not emulating hardware at all. Thats where performance hits are. ANYONE who does emulation will agree, when emulating diff architectures, mostly those with a higher bit is the major hang up. I mean makeing your cpu play like its a ps2 is gonna hammer it big time. Having your video take over ops, that were in the propriatary cpu architecture on a console will take a hit. But making a x86 run a x86 program just executed diff (.dll instead) wont bring it down noticiably if at all!


    Now heres to gaming on Linux anyway we can!

    I think it doesnt matter how we run games on it. The point will eventually get across to the developers either way, if we just keep playing. Games that work well in linux will sell little better. NWN knew that, but the devs didnt go through with NWN2 version! Howver now we got the mac platform in the same boat as us. Those mac gamers are getting restless. We just became a larger group of gamers that want 'nix based games not dll he!!.
