Hallo, I'm pretty much a novice at the inner workings of computers, but I've been attempting to get Steam, the game distributor... thing, running along with the games therein, using wine.
So, I've managed to get Steam itself running, and installed a few games, but when I try to run them, they crash silently and quickly before reaching any sort of menu screen.
the games I've tried are Half Life 2: Episode 1, Portal, and Oblivion. the first two crashed during the loading screen before the main menu, and the latter just seemed to not open up the game from the launcher menu.
has anyone experienced similar problems, or have any reccomendations on what to do about this, or where to go?
