Playonlinux Mint 13

Playonlinux is a layer on top of Wine to allow more control and easier setup for Windows games and programs.

PlayOnLinux Titan Quest tutorial for Mint 13

Previously I have used Wine by its-self and had good results to bad results.
So I am trying Playonlinux to see if it has more success rates.

If not, then I'm back to Wine.

There seems to be a LOT more documentation for Wine than Playonlinux.

Wine

Playonlinux
list of games


Feel free to ask questions or post your results with installing games.

My specs:

Mint 13 Maya 32-bit
AMD Athlon II X3 455 Rana 3.3GHz Triple-Core
3.25 Gig RAM Corsair DDR3 1333
EVGA GeForce 550 Ti 2Gig RAM

I've done a restore in order to avoid any leftovers from past mistakes. I've Downloaded Crysis (The original) and will be working today trying various means (Installing though Steam or just installing in Wine>PlayOnLinux ) of getting it to run. What ever my results, I'll be trying Crysis 2 next.

Let me know what libraries you have to install....
I'm a little confused on the whole "library" thing because there are so many and who knows what required for each game.... and do these installed libraries install in Wine too?

I had a problem running Magicka and Borderlands because they require direct x and NET Framework. Their automatic install would NOT work.
So I tried the libraries in Wine and still no luck.
I will try again in Playonlinux

I'm at a loss as far as Libraries go, I'm pretty much flying blind and trying to be somewhat methodical in my efforts, but let it be known, my efforts are not guided by intelligence, just chance...Hey! I have to work with what I've got! LOL

When installing a game, watch the installation and take note of what its trying to install.
Direct X
.NET Framework
XNA
Flash

because if it doesn't work, then you may need to install one or ALL of those in your Playonlinux Virtual Drive.

We will "probably" see an update in PlayonLinux's game list as well as improved compatibility...":O}

We must update the field to accommodate the players! ":O}

Looks that way, but it warns that it may not work because it's out of date in our Destro

Talking While Chris is playing Crysis 2 and various other games..

Some people are using the "mighty" tool unjustly called playonlinux. I suggest changing the name of that piece of software to ALMOST PLAY in linucs!

I am creating a tutorial for running & configuring games in Playonlinux.
I just successfully ran Titan Quest... It took a few trial-n-error with the display settings, but not it run perfect every time! Looks GREAT too!

I also tried Botanicula (Windows version) and it runs GREAT as well...

As to Crysis in POL I started the DL thought POL and realized I couldn’t monitor it's progress, So I look at my Connection speed in System monitor, it's random and pathetic, it would take years to DL it.

. So I've re downloaded from Steam to try again. But first I need some time off as Acronis 12 and my new main Drive are arriving today and I need to shift the contents on mine and Patty’s drives, Giving her a 90 SSD, but have to move her current install to it or reinstall for her...I don't think this will be a big day for me on AOA! ":O}

But once the smoke settles I'll be in great shape to do what I want to do, Help establish Linux as a gaming platform...I do believe that every little bit helps.":O}

That would actually be OK since it's gonna take years anyway until Crysis will be playable on linucs!

I've Played Crysis in Linux for half an hour. Wine crashed when I tried to Re-play Crysis... What one man can do another can do better... I'm afraid that time will smother all your protests in games designed to run on Linux or PS3 (Linux) why would any one still port to MS and give up 4 or 5 new games just to phone home?
