  • Re: Counterstrike Source Overhaul

    Yeah, I'm hoping the same thing but trying to keep my expectations in check. Valve's silence (rather than outright denial) plus the partially-functioning alpha version of Steam for Linux found on their site shows that at least they're considering it. They probably don't want to commit...

  • Re: Orange Box $8.00!

    Okay... at $10, even I couldn't resist buying it. I'll probably only ever use it to test for Wine regressions, but maybe the kids will play it. :p Here's one thing I didn't know about Steam: If you buy a bundle package like this, and you already own some of the games (I already owned...

  • Re: Wine 1.1.14

    Wow... that is an ugly font problem! Which version of Wine are you running, and did you install the MS core fonts? I do not have the same issue, using the latest Git. I restored the .wine directory I had been using in my 8.10 setup, but there was nothing too special about it. Maybe give winetricks (...

  • Re: Wine 1.1.14

    I believe the problem had to do with accessing the friends list/chat inside of a running game. I never used that feature myself, but I understand a lot of other people were missing it.

  • Wine 1.1.14

    I just saw that Wine 1.1.14 was released, and it looks like they fixed the Steam Friends feature! I'd install it, but I'm backing up my system at the moment so that I can test the latest Kubuntu alpha installer and rebuild everything as Ext4. www.winehq.org/announce/1.1.14

  • Re: RE: IE, Windows Market Share Take Hits in 2008

    [quote user="bob_on_the_cob"] Like Steam [/quote] Steam doesn't require IE6 to be installed under Wine. I have IE6 installed to a completely different prefix than the one I use for Steam.

  • Re: Left 4 Dead

    [quote user="Crisis Causer"] I ran it at max settings + 4xAA 8xAF at 1920x1080. I didn't have a framerate display, but it was fine. This was with only one of my Radeon 3850s. It's a Source game, so it's not stressful. [/quote] I have a 9800GTX+, which should should smoke the 3850...

  • Re: Left 4 Dead

    I downloaded and installed the demo via Steam. Runs pretty slow under Linux+Wine unless you dial down the video settings, but it sure does look good.
