Black Mesa Mint 13 Tutorial

I created a short tutorial on Moddb.com for installing and running the Black Mesa mod in Mint 13

Black mesa Mint 13 Tutorial

This tutorial directly follows my Steam Mint 13 Tutorial

I added some shameless-plugs for AOAForums and my tutorials here.
Hopefully this will help bring in some more Linux Gamers.

Hey Boo. Your link to the Black Mesa Download is wrong. It just shows a photo of a Steam page.

Ok, had to do a bit of poking about. I'm using 4.18 POL and that is making a slight difference as to where files are located, end result was the same.

I guess I should mention that Black Mesa is BUT-TI-FUL! and runs great , sounds great and as Boo mentioned stutters a bit at launch, lag catches up and all is fine. All my Steam Valve games do this.

Many thanks Boo for a great how to, easy to follow, I was never in doubt as to what I should do.

So Black Mesa...Done Deal! ":O}

Cool, looks like you found the BMS folder.
Mine was in the default Wine drive_c where steam would have been installed.
Thanks for posting on moddb too...
I hope we get some more traffic from moddb linux gamers

Not bad, meaning Linux gaming is still an interest for PC Gamers.
