i think its a combo with xserver + source personally. its probably something unbelievable simple like a buffer/draw setting somewhere in a config file rolleyes.gif

I have managed to install and run CODMW4 using Wine and it is stable but virtually unplayable due to artifacts and really low frame rate. Is it possible to improve playability at all or should I just find something less demanding ? Obviously I have everything set to low or off where possible but this only marginally improves the game experience and I can't see me being able to complete this game on this computer. Looking at System Monitor, the CPU is running at 50% and the Ram is using less than 1Gb and the GPU is not even warming up but there are so many on screen glitches and artifacts that I can barely tell what is happening most of the time. I have no idea how to tell if it is hardware or driver related so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

did you try installing the latest DX9 drivers using play on linux?
post #227 of 1019
Then you've not got it set up right or your card is wonky. I have played every COD in Wine absolutely perfectly with no problems. It is one of those games that is so popular and gets some of the most attention next to WoW and others.

As you can tell I'm a novice at gaming on Linux so not sure what DX9 drivers are in use (I didn't know there were old versions available) will try and see how to do that.
Thanks for the suggestion thumb.gif

I used Winetricks to install DX9 previously so was relying on it to select the latest DX9 package. I couldn't find any DX9 package with POL so couldn't get any further.
I decided to remove COD4 as it wasn't much fun as it was and in the process, removed Wine plus all it's baggage, I am going to see if there are other games more suited to my hardware instead.

1. Linux distro being used

Mint 15 64-bit. It was a one-click process each to get both the nVidia driver installed (v310) and to get Steam up and running.

2. Main games played on Linux

Serious Sam: BFE at the moment (Steam). I've got an old copy of Quake Wars Enemy Territory (Linux version) I've been meaning to install. Also play the occasional more casual games like World of Goo (also on Steam).

3. Level of experience with Linux

Used it sporadically for many years. It still befuddles me on occasion, but I enjoy the control it provides me (even if that often = enough rope to hang myself with tongue.gif ). I've run Neverwinter Nights game worlds and an Unreal Tournament game server. Currently trying my hand at PostgreSQL and python web development (flask).

4. Any questions you might have

When are we going to see more Steam games on Linux?!?!

In the past, I've had major problems getting even the proprietary Radeon drivers to work on Linux. nVidia, though often troublesome to some extent as well, usually seemed to be a smaller hill to climb. With Mint's new proprietary drivers installation tool, setting up that GeForce card is a piece of cake. This is probably the biggest reason I keep buying nVidia cards.
