  • RE: Hey Linux Gamers, Would You Like Some Steam with Your WINE? Valve's On It

    Hey Bob. Yeah, I'm excited. I've just been hard at work and not much time to swing round. :) The title of the article here is a little bit misleading to people who know what Wine is. This code is 100% native - like the Mac ports, no use of Wine at all. To those who don't know: Wine's...

  • Alien Swarm

    Don't know if anyone else (except Bob) noticed yet, but there's another free game out on Steam today: Alien Swarm. Bonus: It appears to work under Wine with no issues.

  • 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: New L4D 2 HD trailer

    I just played through the L4D2 demo. It's pretty good.... It didn't strike me as being wildly different from the first one though (which isn't a bad thing). It seems to play fine under Wine 1.1.32 in Linux, with all effects turned to high and shaders at very high (I was playing in 1360x768...

  • Re: Dungeons & Dragons Online Free Option.

    Thanks for the info! I think I'll take a peek at it this weekend too.

  • RE: Left 4 Dead Free To Play Via Steam This Friday

    I was excited, so I tried it under Wine. It worked perfectly. But, as it turns out, THAT GAME SCARES THE HELL OUT OF ME. Coming from a guy that's laughed his way through every Romero flick, that's somewhat of a ringing endorsement I suppose. But no way am I going to buy it: more fun to laugh...

  • 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: Quake Live Beta Opens To More Players

    And thank you for the invite, Bob! It does not currently work under Wine on Linux (the installer crashes), but I've filed bug reports and hope to get time to do some digging into the code this weekend. Q3&4 run under Wine, so it should be possible to get this working with a little hammering.

  • 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.
