post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I want to convert, i really do. But i cant do that if there wont be any decent games out there. Send screen shots of your favorite Linux only game. I dont want to see any that i can play on windows.

Dude, I like playing around with Linux, but for games it is simply a no-go. Unless you like flash games of course.

Guides for installing games in Ubuntu
Wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator) Wine is a windows compatibility layer. Not unlike an emulator at first glance, Wine makes many windows programs work in Unix environments. There are other programs similar, two of the most popular being Cedega and Crossover Games
Googling for Linux Games is also an easy way to find them.

Dont the compatibility programs take a serious performance hit? Why would i use something like wine when im trying to get away from windows?
post #5 of 23
Why wine? For games because everything ELSE is non windows. And for music I advise Amarok. Large, and bulky, but a niiiiice program. I am suuure your rig can handle it.. heh






BZFlag- Doesn't look like much, but sure is fun! Addicting... If you install linux try it








Then there is the classic tux racer




Nexuiz is a fun FPS



Cube 2 aka saurbraten

You don't necessarily take a performance hit, look around the forums a bit before posting, this topic has been covered plenty of times. The thread directly under yours at the time I'm looking at this would have covered your question had you looked. Is there a loss of graphical quality while playing games under Linux?

As I said in that one, I for one, get better fps in Linux than windows more often than not. When I'm not getting better fps, it's only slightly lower, but runs much more smoothly. I no longer lag. However, the first time I installed wine I took a huge hit. Only about 30 fps max in CSS, I reinstalled wine and got the aforementioned result.

Nexuiz is one of the best FPSs I've played. It is for both Linux and windows, though.

Saurbraten I've never been able to play, since no one else seems to ever be on it.

There's also Warsow. It's an extremely fast-paced FPS. Both for Linux and windows, again.

What was that monkey ball game for Linux, where you tilt the world to roll a ball to grab coins on a map? That was a fun game. This is one is Linux-only, so far as I know.

Wine sucks for gaming, period. Use native games and support companies that bother to develop Linux clients for their releases.

Yeah, i heard that EVE online came to Linux, but with limited graphical support. I just cant take that leap without something fun to do. Coding and programming aren't in my vocabulary yet so if Linux cant hold its own uniquely, then i guess i stick to windows. I do plan to put Mandriva (spelt right lol?) on a lappy when i get one but until then....
