I just installed it today using the latest version of cedega and it runs great! Only problem I had was sound which I fixed after switching from alsa to oss. I suggest you give it a try.

well i wanted to try cedega but you need to pay for it as well for crossover... wine is a free solution that's why i was trying to play with wine... and on their site they say they were able to play MP2 with it =(

What version of Wine are you using? While Max Payne 2 works perfectly with the most recent versions, I don't know how it works with the default version in the Ubuntu repository.

Try upgrading to the most recent release by going here:


and downloading (and then installing) the relevant release.

ok... i have removed wine that i had installed from ubuntu's repositories... and have downloaded the correct version from that site and have successfully installed it.. but i still can't play MP2... humm is it because of WINE's configuration? below are screenshots i have taken from my configuration and the error it happens when i try to play...









Can anyone help me?

i am another newbie with wine, never got any program to work with it.

so how did you actually install max payne 2? just clicking on install will install it? and after installation, will i get a menu for it in the gnome main menu?
