Just wondered if anyone has installed this on Linux yet? Works or no?

Thanks for that Cyberarmy,is that you you playing in the youtube video?.
Love the 'Maiden soundtrack.
So what did you have to do to get COD MW2 running with Wine?.
I've never had much luck with getting games running with Wine,i play the original COD MW with Cedega.

Smile CodMw2_linux

1.- hell yeah I love ironmaiden in special old stuff!

2.- as wine 1.1.33 Install right out the box, but you need to add
d3dx9, corefonts, dotnet20, mfc42 with winetricks, now there is
a popular error in valve steam "incomplete installation(53)"if
thats the case you need patch wine with this Patch steam_hack.tar.bz2
and update game with your patch build.

* there is people with different error codes & other problems
related with Codmw2 Installations,with no solutions so far *


3.Game runs fine , no problems , but It is a pain, to do install
game its good , wine has released ver 1.1.34 with some fixes for
left for dead2, and I belive to have same problem with the
certificate, any way Using Ubuntu 9.10+wine 1.1.33+patch+Nvidia Card

4.if you dont have much exp with wine kinda,hard to install but
not imposible... and hey its never late to learn!

I Think they change from punkbuster to steam vac service
in my copy I need to use steam to activate and install game,
I had an old account from my HL2 game so I used that...

Dont know if there is other way.

@kpendergraft in order to patch wine you have to set up your wine-git

clone wine git with some linux-fu in console.....

1.-Install Git you'll need 1.4.1 or higher dont know how to do it in suse
only debian

2.-git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git ~/wine-git

3.-cd ~/wine-git

4.-copy the patch into directory!!

5.-patch -p1 < patch_name.diff

you wil get back some stuff like
"patching file programs/winecfg/Pt.rc"

after this just compile again

6.-./configure && make depend && make

And Rerun your program..

7.-./wine "C:\Program Files\Program Name\Steam.exe"

and done... * when i write this stuff wine was in version 1.1.33 and right now
its 1.1.37 So I hope and works for you..
