    Thinking of getting cedega?

    Dont get it *period* I am not a disgruntled cedega user, i have been paying for its "services" for 2 years now. Anyone who is thinking of getting cedega please read.

    Getting a game to work on cedega is hit and miss. Most of the time though, its a miss. Infact in my experience, wine runs more games with better performance than cedega. Hl2? Runs one wine, but tons of issues on cedega (http://www.cedega.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=54).

    Another huge problem with cedega is when your game does work, they patch cedega, and it doesnt work for months while they try to patch it again, maybe.

    Where does all the money go? Who knows. I've seen arguments on how its supporting linux, but the transgaming team is not doing their job, and if we pay them, its a job.

    To anyone whos thinking about getting cedega, dont. If you must know what its about go torrent it and try it, you will throw it away within the hour.

    I was really considering getting it, some of my games dont work in WINE, but I never actually had them work in Cedega, a few games did though. Ill probably just try the next version, It looks like it can get better, hope it does

    Yes. It is the simplest way until linux ports are made.

    Wine is getting better all the time, I actually see the results when I patch it, steam went from taking 1-2 minutes to start up to take 15 seconds with the latest patch. I torrented cedega when I first got linux, and I threw it out, cedega has a fancy interface, woohoo, but wine is simpler, and way more effective.

    Ah, threads like this just bring a smile to my face...

    I'm aways happy to hear that Cedega continues to disappoint! Stick with Wine, in the end you'll be much happier.

    a little bit off-topic, but since wine us under a GPL license, and cedega is a spinoff on wine AND charging money for it and releasing it as closed-source, isn't that breaking a license agreement?

    There are different parts of Cedega, each licensed under a separate license. More details here:

    Cedega is based off of an older, pre-GPL version of Wine.
