Would be good for extending the range of games available. I know native games are the focus of the podcast, but its one of the things that help new Linux users ease into a whole different Operating System, and always would be helpful to trade tips and tricks for getting games working.September 4, 2013 at 11:53 pm #69397
That is what WinHQ is for…………………….. Your in a reverse mood aren’t ya. Native, I run very few games in wine and they have to be games I have no option to do it with in order to play.September 5, 2013 at 12:03 am #69398kloinkaParticipant
Me thinks the Wine has fouled into Vinegar. o_0September 5, 2013 at 12:36 am #69400Venn StoneKeymaster
It does no such thing. Unless it “just works” new Linux users flip the hell out.September 5, 2013 at 7:56 am #69410
Okay, I guess I see everyone’s point. Just to be straight… Everyone here USES it, just no one wants to admit/talk about it. I’m Linux only since 2008ish, I was hoping you awesome Hax0r l33t hero’s of mine could help me get my n00b ass running a couple games.
Back to playonlinux forums I guess.
good chat guys.September 5, 2013 at 7:57 am #69411
Except kloinker. Wtf is with the vinegar… Oh WINE. VINEGAR.
ha. I guess.September 5, 2013 at 8:07 am #69416
Sore…… it’s not that we don’t use it. Like Venn said when we started using it we all got frustrated, we persevered and got things going, new users that are coming straight from windows to linux, want it to work out the box and piss and moan, complain and wine (hmmm) that is don’t work so linux doesn’t work. See the issues. Native works and they can’t do all that other stuff and say linux doesn’t work.September 5, 2013 at 8:17 am #69421
Bullshit. That’s the nature of Linux, bro. Some games run easier on Arch’s libs, some on Fedora’s. The guys mention that from time to time. That’s why devels picked Ubuntu to work from. How many of us use the ‘recommended’ fk that we all run our version of Linux and work with what we got. Wine compatibility is an extension of the same concept, just with a fuk-ton more variables. I thought hackin’ stuff till it ran was part of the fun…
Instead of an info-dump with a (this ain’t native, take it or leave it) warning, we pretend its not variable at all? Cuz that’s easier for newer users?
Don’t get me wrong… I’m all about the ‘wine make revels lazy and Fuckin dumb toward Linux’, I really do. I just am confused about the disconnect.September 5, 2013 at 8:32 am #69423
I have tried helping new users and they disconnect at the point of, it don’t work. Meaning the latest windows game does not even run in wine. So to them Linux no matter the flavor is broke. So what do they do they go back to windows and tell everyone Linux does not work. Hence the cycle that has been fought about since it’s inception. Don’t get me me wrong the api part of wine is great for compatibility but I can not rely on it to work 100% when it is only a translator not a native answer. These new windows users complain about windows programs that don’t install because their shit s infected. So they go into the forums and bash the program they tried to install not their own stupidity for getting the machine infected. It’s a vicious cycle, you have to stop it somewhere. Native is the answer.September 5, 2013 at 8:50 am #69424kloinkaParticipant
