Playonlinux Mint 13 Tutorial

Playonlinux is a Graphical User Interface that works with Wine. It provides some extra functionality for running your Windows games and programs.

Check out my tutorial explaining, installing and customizing your Windows games in Mint 13:

Playonlinux Tutorial

In this tutorial I install Titan Quest, an awesome Action Role Playing Game, in Mint 13.

How much time have you played this game? If you managed a couple of days with no crash then playonlinux can be called playonlinux, otherwise we might call it installonlinucs!

Good point... My assumption was "if it installed and ran, then it should run the entire game"
I'll do more long-term playing after installing a game from now on...
I definitely won't complain about playing MORE games

I've completed Half-Life, Half-Life 2, And verified, (played for several hours) Half-Life Episode One.

Crysis 2 looks like it will play for me with a New Card, Will find out Thursday. I really had no idea how outdated my card is...I currently have 94 Cuda Cores, will have 1344 Cuda Cores...it could make a difference... as every-time I boot up the game it tells me what my card is, then it tell me that if I try to run with it there will be Artifacts and "strange behaviors" and that there will be frequent crashes...

despite all of that the game runs fine, a bit jerky due to low frames rates, but it looks beautiful, plays well enough to be fun...but it does crash...Waiting is...":O}

It's going into Patti's box, replacing a 7900. Actually it's going home into the setup I used with it, pretty much, just a different case. Patti's water cooled so the water jacket goes with as well...Patti does OK for girl hey! ":O}

This time I went all out, for me that is...":O}

(These bastards have got cards selling for WELL OVER a thousand dollars!!
3500 Cuda cores!!) They already have a 4 gig of Ram model of my card!

EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

It just seems to me that if were going to work at getting games up in Linux, we need at lest one really modern card, two would be better! LOL

I mean it's great that we can and do support the gear we have and then some, but I felt I needed hands on experience as I don't have the hardware background that allows some to work from the specs.

And Crysis 2 kept telling me I would cra*#%sh if I used my 8800GTS... and it would seem they knew what they were talking about! I Cr*%*#@*ash! ":O}

EVGA is really good!
I have 4 different video cards from them and one motherboard.
Never had a problem with any of them!

My "modern" card is 6 months old and should play just about anything...

First I went with Nvida, then I think It was BFG,, last three or four cards have been EVGA.Loved their lifetime guarantee, alas only three years on my card...price you pay for speed, did you see my post on Nvidia speed settings? ":O}

As per your card, you have to understand I know nothing! I'm pleased to hear you packing a punch, lets tear up some games! ":O}

Outside of the Half-life series, haven't gotten a game to play yet. Have gotten close, but then it slips away again...But I'm still at it! ":O}

I recommend some older games, or some freeware games.
